    This is what the perfect book looks, feels and reads like!

    Series fan never tire of the Judge Deborah Knott series because it is always fresh and every book is a new glimpse into southern life, family dynamics and the career challenges of an interesting woman of character and depth. Deborah is trying to settle into newly married life with Major Dwight Bryant and her stepson who now lives with them full time after the untimely death of his mother (Winter¿s Child). All this should be enough to keep Judge Knott occupied but anyone who is a fan of this series will know that it is not. She is the ultimate multi-tasker and involving herself in her husband, Dwight¿s, latest case is just background noise to her. A brutal slaying has shaken Colleton County but trying to solve this gruesome murder is proving a challenge since the body parts are showing up in varied and interesting places one at a time! Dwight is trying to give this his full attention to this while helping his son adjust to the grief of losing his mother and having to come live with Dwight and Deborah. Toss in some Knott family dynamics from one of Deborah¿s 11 brothers, immigration issues and just a touch of homey charm and you have the best of the summer reads! Enjoy this book for the work of art that is it and pick up the rest of the books in this series because when you are done with one your greatest treasure is knowing there is another one to read! The added bonus is all the hockey education you receive about the Canes!

    Judge Deborah Knott of Colleton County, North Carolina is settling in quite nicely to married life with Sheriff¿s Deputy Dwight Bryant who has loved her for a long time. When Dwight¿s ex-wife dies, his eight year old son Cal comes to live them and they are in the process of becoming a family. Deborah and Dwight try not to discuss their work at home but sometimes that is not possible when she has information he needs.--------------- Body parts are found all around the county and nobody has a clue whose remains these are because nobody has filed a missing person¿s report. Flame Smith comes to town looking for her lover Buzz Harris who she intends to marry once his divorce is finalized. She can¿t find him so she goes to the sheriff she identifies marks on the corpse that Buzz had. Finger prints prove he is the victim but nobody knows who could have hated him so much as to do such a horrific thing. The answers lies in a case Deborah heard in court but she is not yet aware of its significance. If she does and provide the information to her husband, with what he has they will be able to identify the killer?.----------- Every Deborah Knott mystery is unique, original and entertaining with red herrings and unexpected twists to keep the reader guessing who the killer is. In HARD ROW, the audience get an inside look at the judge¿s personal life as Dwight plays a major role in the storyline. Fans can¿t help but adore him because he loves his wife and is thankful she loves him enough to marry him and be a mother to his son. Margaret Maron writes bloodless regional police procedurals that are always quite good--------------- Harriet Klausner

    Got sick of her books being definitely liberal with no respect for republicans.
