What the Critics Say

"The mountain setting plays a huge role here, and Maron does a beautiful job with it, adding local color, as well as delightful regionalisms, to give her characters plenty of personality" (Booklist)

    Story
    "Southern book lover"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would and have unconditionally recomend this book to a friend. I like Maron's writing and am hooked on her characters, her stories, and her depiction of southern life. My only caveat is the narrator. Her voice is not overtly southern, which I would prefer for these books, and I don't like the way she does southern accents in men. That said, I've listened to a number in this series and I am used to her, so it doesn't seem so glaring anymore, and I do like her level of inflection and emotion. But, really, it's the book itself that is so good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Maron's characters ring true to me as a southern woman of a certain age. Even though I grew up in the city, much of what her character went thru as a southern woman I can relate to. I also like the way she brings modern issues into the stories and shows their impacts on the characters -- and by extension all of us -- and the way of life. The mystery is not one that I immediately solved (but all the "clues" are revealed to the reader -- so I had a fighting chance of solving it), but it also doesn't leave the reader saying "huh?" at the end either. In this book, I thought the romantic angst felt by Deborah, the main character, was a little unbelievable, but in this series of books it's rare that I come across anything unbelievable. And nonetheless the personal story still appealed. I like the way the characters have grown over the course of the series.

    Story
    "Not up to her best work"

    I was disappointed in the inner deliberation Knott has about her fiance, and disappointed in the handling. Maron has shown that she can write well, and the way Knott thinks, and the way it is all presented as she careens through her dilemma felt juvenile. Knott is a mature woman who can be dumb sometimes, that is true, but her thinking is not juvenile. Drove me crazy.

    The story was fine; Again, not her best work but it was okay for a drive.

    "Where'd they find this narrator?"

    Her voice is grating, really annoying. The phrasing is choppy, filled with confusing pauses. Very often it sounds as if she's reading this for the first time. This was my first audio recording of the Deborah Knott series, and if she's going to continue to narrate them, I'm going back to the books.
