The latest Deborah Knott whodunit (see Christmas Mourning) is a delightful refreshing tale

They were life long friends, but last year out of the blue Colleton County Sheriff's Deputy Dwight Bryant proposed to North Carolina Judge Deborah Knott. She accepted in what she thought would be a marriage of convenience between two older people. Instead love adds passion to their dependable relationship.

Married for one year, the judge and the deputy take Amtrak to New York on a belated honeymoon. The couple is staying at an Upper West Side Apartment belonging to his sister-in-law Kate. Deborah also has a special bronze sculpture small enough to place in Dwight's bag as a gift from dying Jane Lattimore to her daughter photojournalist Anne Lattimore Harald. Anne's husband NYPD Lieutenant Sigrid Harald swings by to pick it up as a party is in swing in the apartment next to the one the honeymooners are staying in. When Sigrid and Deborah enter Kate's apartment, they find the corpse of Sidney the super on the balcony and the sculpture missing. Unable to resist Deborah and Dwight assist Sigrid on the investigation.

The latest Deborah Knott whodunit (see Christmas Mourning) is a delightful refreshing tale as the North Carolina couple finds their Manhattan honeymoon interrupted by murder and robbery. The mystery is clever with roots to 1942; while part of the fun is the lofty attitude of urbane New Yorkers to the country bumpkins as the sophisticated urbanites assume that the entire South lacks six degrees of separation. Fans will enjoy this fine entry enhanced by Margaret Maron having Sigrid (see in Past Imperfect and Fugitive Colors) as the lead investigator.

I have enjoyed the other books in the Deborah Knott series, but this one did not impress me. There was too much Sigrid and not enough Deborah and Dwight. This book gives the impression that the author has written a crossover novel in an attempt to interest dedicated Judge Knott fans in the Sigrid series.

    What fun!

    That great favorite, Judge Deborah Knott, meets Maron's other series heroine, Sigrid Harald, in the Big Apple while on a "honeymoon" trip. Of course there are murders, and of course the book is a lark, and a joy to read.

    Recommended by my 93 Year old mother

    My mother and I have shared a love of mysteries since I was around 12 and read early Sayers and Tey's "Brat Farrar". This is one of the series we look forward to. As my mother put it, "It is always interesting to have the Judge travel and see a new place through her eyes, but this was really good because I know New York City so well."

    I have to agree. The way the relationship between Deborah and Cal keeps evolving is interesting to someone who has stepchilden.
