    "Great!"

    The Judge Knot series is well written. the characters are well formed, after reading just one Judge Knot book you feel you know the county and people, after a couple, you would swear they true exist and you have met them in person.

    "Loved the story and the narrator!"

    Another in the Deborah Knott series. Long time favorite author only made better by a great narrator! This story has a wonderful background of mountains and pottery, family and lust, power and greed! All the ingredients required to make a great read... and a mystery.

    "Good characters, but way too obvious plot"

    I like this writer and her recurring characters. This book also has some interesting stuff about the pottery craft. But the elements of the mystery (and its solution) are hammered in repeatedly. I was tempted just to fast forward to get it over with. Not her best.
