If there's truly such a thing as an American cozy, Margaret Maron's novels of the contemporary South fit the bill. Great character-driven mystery. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 13 years ago. It had been awhile since I'd read Maron; I'd forgotten how good she is and what strong, character-driven mysteries she writes. I love Deborah's relationship with her family and friends. Her observations on society and racism were insightful without being preachy.

I have read all of Margaret Maron's books and they are always a decided treat. Since I have read so many, and since I am almost 80 yrs old, I tend to forget titles.

It would help so much if AMAZON would print the original publishing date---so I avoid ordering a book I have already consumed.

Thanks, Joanna Spaulding
Margaret Maron has beautifully developed the character of Deborah Knott, along with her extended family and friends. Woven throughout her intelligent mysteries is a wonderful picture of life in several areas of North Carolina as well as information about the special towns, crafts and industries in that part of the United States. I recommend starting with her first Deborah Knott novel and proceeding in order, but you can read them independent of one another.

She never disappoints. HOME FIRES, like the first five Deborah Knott novels that precede it, has the same tang and truth of Southern fiction. Call it mystery if you want, but Maron ladles mystery over pithy and sometimes uncomfortable truth, and the story brings just enough satisfaction to leave you wanting more.
I have read the Deborah Knott series from the beginning for the mystery and for the picture Margaret Maron gives of life in non-urban Eastern Carolina. Fir me this was the best in the series to date. Not only is the mystery good, the picture of race relations in today's South from both Black and White perspectives is extremely well drawn. The reality and the complexities of racism are illustrated along with possibilities. The mystery is complicated by the reader's own reactions to the apparent racial motivation behind the fires. This book is for those who desire an accurate look at today's South along with a good story line and Intriguing characters.
I've enjoyed all these Mysteries. She includes some interesting background on North Carolina, the south and some of the historical and social aspects of this part of the country. A fun read.
I enjoy the Judge Knott series. And this one not only involved her family but the ending was a surprise! After reading several of her books, I feel like I could almost drive around Dobbs. A relaxing enjoyable read.
The Deborah Knott series is the best mystery series on the market today.
very good
