    " This was a pretty good story - enough mystery to make it interesting - stir in some human interest and love stuff - a nice mix for an easy read. Enjoyed it enough that i will probably read others by this author. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shirrapop | 1/4/2014

    " still reading this boring book...I plan on skipping a few chapters..wont make one bit of difference for the author puts in unnecessary dialog that never adds to the story. Such as one character likes ice cream..who the f cares? How does that contribute to the story? An example of untalented authors. "

    " I have read a lot of books by this author and loved most of them. I did not like this one at all. It was just too trite and sappy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 12/13/2013

    " Her second best book surpassed only by the first of the series. Big family gathering at the end. An ADA is killed while her baby is in the back seat "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robyn | 12/11/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 12/10/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debra | 12/8/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gretchen Viney | 3/26/2013

    " I like this series but this book had a lot of gratuitous race identification. I'm not sure why but it was particularly noticeable (perhaps because I "read" this via CD) and not related in any way to the plot. I wonder if anyone else noticed. I do like this series and am looking forward to the next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David-anselm | 2/28/2013

    " A really good read. The judge is planning her late december wedding. And of course we have a murder. A friend of the judges is shot while she is driving her car. Her adopted child was in the back of the car. Jitters, grieving, family and friends. Good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 1/3/2013

    " Margaret Maron's Deborah Knott series is really good. This is the one where she marries her long time friend, Dwight. CJ Critt is her usual reader and she is very good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bruce | 5/30/2012

    " Not one of the strongest outings in what has been a fairly consistent series. I enjoy the Judge Deborah Knott books, largely because of the characterizations and the descriptions of the Carolinas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbie | 5/15/2012

    " I love her Deborah Knott series. It is such a wonderful, warm picture of family and friends. I'd like to know these people. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesley | 2/4/2012

    " I continue to enjoy Margaret Maron's books, and this was another good one to listen to in the car. The North Carolina setting is so familiar, and I continue to enjoy the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandi | 2/4/2012

    " One of my favorite series. It is always nice to catch up with Judge Deborah Knott and her family and the mystery in this book was pretty good too. Audio narrated by C. J. Critt "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shirley | 1/12/2012

    " Just ok. Too many family members, not enough emphasis on the mystery element for my taste. Some background about people is fine, but I'm not really interested in all the extended family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marti | 12/16/2011

    " They finally got married!!! I also like the mystery this time! Kept me going until the end with the mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 10/13/2011

    " Less spectacular than solid, but it kept my attention while I waiting around at a hospital, and that's hard to do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kurt | 8/8/2011

    " I love the big family-lots of characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bjorose | 6/5/2011

    " I have re-discovered the Judge Knott books. This book aptly describes the time leading up to and the day of Deborah and Dwight's wedding. And you guessed it there is a murder. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 5/16/2011

    " These are always fun because the setting is this area of NC and she always mentions places that you know. Easy reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 4/12/2011
