Home Fires

When racial tension erupts in the sleepy community of Colleton County, North Carolina, Deborah is caught off guard.

But then the first black church is burned, and all of Deborah's alarms go off.

Publisher's Summary

Ever since Bootlegger's Daughter stormed the mystery awards in 1993, Margaret Maron's Deborah Knott novels have won a dedicated following. Readers love her wise and witty heroine, intriguing plots, and charming southern country settings. Home Fires offers all this and more, as it tackles one of the contemporary South's most burning issues. When racial tension erupts in the sleepy community of Colleton County, North Carolina, Deborah is caught off guard. She is happily tending her own home fires: her simmering romance with Kidd Chapin, the house she's building on her family's land, and her campaign for reelection as district judge. But then the first black church is burned, and all of Deborah's alarms go off. Narrator C.J. Critt has received rave reviews for her performances of the Deborah Knott mysteries. Her perfect comic timing lets you fully enjoy the judge's down-home humor. Her authentic accents carry you deep into Deborah Knott's rural South to explore its rich history and current concerns.

What the Critics Say

"Maron's novel is as eye-opening as it is charming and one that cleverly combines fast-paced action, gentle humor, and the lazy feeling of a southern summer Sunday. There's lots to like about Home Fires, including its refreshingly honest look at the modern South. A solid addition to every collection." (BookList)

    "Strong characters and a bit of romance!"

    With all the mystery of the south along with the intrigue of racial politics add up to make this a great read/listen. C.J. Critt does an excellent job of bringing the characters to life just the way that Margaret Maron wrote them.
