"All the furniture shoptalk will keep decorating aficionados happy; the rest of us will be more than willing to settle for Deborah's feisty humor and sharp deductive skills." (Booklist)
"Maron continues her usual warm-hearted, family-oriented approach, tempered with observant detail, infectious enthusiasm, and light humor. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)

"Margaret Maron is mistress of mystery!"
Another fun Deborah Knott mystery this one is set at the Furniture Market. Another interesting setting for another interesting story! Visit Deborah's court and then follow her thru the real mystery here. C. J. does a great job portraying the characters of this story!
"Margaret Maron & C.J. Critt"
Margaret Maron and C. J. Critt make an wonderful team. C. J. Critt could read anything and make it fun, but when she has Margaret Maron's book to read, it's over the top.
This is a wonderful book in the middle of a wonderful series about Judge Caroline Knott.
I enjoyed the relaxed and gentle way the people interacted. The mystery. The situations Judge Knott gets herself into. While the suspense is present, it doesn't get too scary.
C. J. Critt can make you believe you are in the middle of the story. She is my favorite all time reader/actor. She really does act out the scenes in a wonderful way.
The whole book was wonderful from beginning to end.
This is book five in the Knott series and we have Judge Deborah Knott substituting for a vacationing colleague in High Point, North Carolina. The author places the murder in the middle of the Furniture Market Show. There are lots of suspects including Knott. Knott runs into an old law school friend as well as lots of unusual characters.
The plot is full of twists and turns to keep the reader turning pages. There is southern hospitality, lots of furniture lore, industry jargon and realistic dialogue. C. J. Critt does a good job narrating the story. It is great they have kept the same narrator so far in the series.
"I love Maron."
I have now listened to a lot of Deborah Knott books. Good mystery and insightful stories of realistic court room sketches. Not the court rooms of Law and Order, for sure. Excellent reader/performance too.
I discovered this series a few months ago. It has quickly become one of my favorites.
In this adventure Judge Deborah Knott travels to High Point, North Carolina. She arrives at the start of the International Home Furnishings Market. Early in the story Deborah meets an eccentric woman who is central to the mystery that unfolds.
The descriptions of the "Market" are vivid and interesting. I felt like I was there with Debrah Knott, seeing everything she was seeing. The characters are varied and unique. The plot moves right along without feeling rushed.
I can't wait to read the next entry in the series.
"One of her best"
I really liked it
She has many Deborah Knott books and I enjoy each one
I never listen to any book for more than three hours. This series are all just about the right length
A faster paced book than most of the series
"Keeps your interest"
I enjoyed this book. It was my first Margaret Maron title and I felt pulled in by the characters as soon as I started listening. The narrator, C. J. Critt did a great job with all of the different voices. The plot moves along well and there are twists and turns along the way to keep your interest.
My complaint is that there are LONG pauses at edit points and at the end / beginning of chapters. So long that I thought my device had stopped working several times. There are also quotes that start each chapter that add nothing to the book. That said, I would still recommend a listen.
