Margaret Maron grew up on a farm near Raleigh and lived in Brooklyn for many years. Returning to her North Carolina roots prompted Marcia to write a series based on her own background, the first of which, Bootlegger's Daughter, was a Washington Post bestseller and swept the major mystery awards for 1993. THREE-DAY TOWN is the seventeenth book in the acclaimed Deborah Knott series. Visit her website at www.margaretmaron.com.Review:
"Dwight's obsession with New York gourmet delights and Deborah's passion for stylish, impractical footwear are charming, but Sigrid's slow but steady police work carries the day. Fans who have hankered for Deborah and Sigrid to find themselves in the same story will be charmed." (Kirkus on THREE-DAY TOWN )
"This is a strong addition to a
series that's won Edgar, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity awards." (Publishers Weekly on THREE-DAY TOWN )
On Christmas Mourning:
"[Maron] plots like a modern-day Christie, but the North Carolina charm is all her own." (Kirkus )
"Warm and authentic family relationships are the heart of this evergreen series." (Publishers Weekly )
"[A] winning entry and a fine holiday mystery." (Booklist )
" This book has plenty of suspense and the characters are well done. One of Ms. Maron's strengths is the believability of her characters. They add to the story and don't distract the reader with useless red herrings. As usual, the interplay between Dwight and Deborah is wonderfully romantic even in the midst of a murder. I have to say that I will be glad to see them back home in the next book. I just love the family dynamics and the southern ambiance in these books. Can't wait for the next book in the series!!"
