Margaret Maron is The New York Times best-selling author of the acclaimed Deborah Knott series of southern mysteries. In a rare departure from the Knott series, Maron ratchets up the suspense in the dark and captivating stand-alone mystery, Last Lessons of Summer. Amy Stedman is the young heiress of a prosperous children's book publishing company. She arrives in North Carolina from New York City to clear the family house of her grandmother's belongings and hopefully find clues to her murder, which remains unsolved. While cleaning and rummaging through the woman's dusty possessions, Amy reflects on her own unfulfilling life. Married to a vain man who doesn't love her so much as value her family's lucrative legacy, Amy realizes that their relationship strangely echoes her parents' unfortunate marriage. Soon after giving birth to her, Amy's mother Maxine committed suicide under suspicious circumstances. Amy's father, a brash businessman and unapologetic opportunist, fostered deceit and deeply seated feelings of doubt in the family. Within the walls of this old house, dark recollections of unnatural death are beginning to permeate the air, adding a premonition of menace to Amy's increasingly troubled thoughts. Was Maxine's death really a suicide? And if it wasn't, what terrible secrets may be lying in wait for Amy? Download and start listening now!

    " In a slight departure from her Judge Deborah Knott mysteries, we read the story of Amy Steadman, artist for the family children's book business. After Amy's grandmother is murdered, she travels to North Carolina to clean out her house, and hopefully find answers to why her mother committed suicide when she was three years old. Local law enforcement includes Dwight Bryant, Judge Deborah Knott's husband. "

    " As she packs up her grandmother's house, Amy explores the mysteries of her mother's suicide and her grandmother's murder and makes some startling discoveries. Set in North Carolina near Raleigh, this is an enjoyable suspense story which reminds me of Barbara Michaels "

    " good, fast read. not quiet as good as the Deborah Knot series by Margaret Maron, but actually had some crossover characters from that series. "

    " I liked this mystery, but not as much as I like her Deborah Knott series. I listened to it (as I have all her books). "
