MARGARET MARON grew up in the country near Raleigh, North Carolina, but for many years lived in Brooklyn, New York. When she and her artist husband returned to the farm that had been in her family for a hundred years, she began a series based on her own background. The first book, Bootlegger's Daughter, became a Washington Post bestseller that swept the major mystery awards for its year-winning the Edgar, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity Awards for Best Novel-and is among the 100 Favorite Mysteries of the Century as selected by the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association. Later Deborah Knott novels Up Jumps the Devil, Storm Track, and Three-Day Town each also won the Agatha Award for Best Novel. Margaret is also the author of the Sigrid Harald series of detective novels. In 2008, Maron received the North Carolina Award for Literature, the highest civilian honor the state bestows on its authors. And in 2013, the Mystery Writers of America celebrated Maron's contributions to the mystery genre by naming her a Grand Master-an honor first bestowed on Agatha Christie.

Maron's Judge Deborah Knott series is one of those cozy-procedural combos whose fans relish being part of the daily lives of the characters. This eleventh installment in the series will be treasured by those devotees with the same fervor that soap fans feel for a pivotal episode. It's Christmas, which means plenty of -family-friendly celebrating among Judge Knott's enormous clan in Colleton County, North Carolina, but more than that, the long-awaited marriage between Deborah and Deputy Sheriff Dwight Bryant is about to happen. Amid the myriad domestic details, there is also murder: the shooting of an assistant DA leads back to an earlier murder trial and the possibility that a soon-to-be-executed woman may be innocent. Readers new to this series may find the domesticity a bit overwhelming--a full page on the question of whether the wedding rice bags should be filled with birdseed?--but Deborah's fans will want to hear it all. And give Maron credit: her ability to evoke the camaraderie shared by small-town friends and family is almost enticing enough to make Woody Allen consider moving to North Carolina. Bill Ott
