    Margaret Maron's mysteries starring Judge Deborah Knott have built a loyal following since debuting with the Edgar Award-winning The Bootlegger's Daughter. The series' 18th entry finds Deborah and her husband, Deputy Sheriff Bryant, teaming up with Lt. Sigrid Herald to track down a killer on the loose in their small North Carolina town.

    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is Chicago's only openly practicing wizard. He is also dead broke. His vast knowledge and magical skills are unfortunately matched by his talent for making powerful enemies and alienating friends. With little more than his integrity left, he accepts an offer of work from Lt. Karin Murphy of Chicago's Special Investigations Unit. He wants to redeem himself in Murphy's eyes and make enough money to quiet his rumbling stomach.

    Kate Moore is a working mother, struggling to make ends meet, to raise children, to keep a spark in her marriage... and to maintain an increasingly unbearable life-defining secret. So when her husband is offered a lucrative job in Luxembourg, she jumps at the chance to leave behind her double-life, to start anew. She begins to reinvent herself as an expat, finding her way in a language she doesn’t speak, doing the housewifely things she’s never before done - playdates and coffee mornings, daily cooking and never-ending laundry....

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Maybe it was listening to this book vs. reading it. But I listened to it at 2x to get though it as quick as possible. I read this for my book club so felt I had to finish it. Maybe it needs to be read so you can figure out which time period she is talking about!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something I pick and not chosen by my book club.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Maybe more of a pause when switching to a different time period.


    What character would you cut from The Expats?

    All of them!


    Any additional comments?

    I really did not enjoy this book at all, I did not like the ending either.

    He made Hester sound like the witch she was.


    If you could take any character from Jessica out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Jessica, she was kind and interested in other people.
