Don't miss the other books in the Deborah Knott mystery series.

"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)
I listen to audio books while working.
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.
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.
