Overview

An award-winning mystery novelist and New York Times Bestseller, Margaret Maron uses her North Carolina background when writing the popular Judge Deborah Knott series.

But before Deborah Knott, there was Lt. Sigrid Harald, a homicide detective with the NYPD. Now, with the re-release of Maron's very first book, long out of print, new readers can finally get to know the character that started it all. In One Coffee With, we meet Sigrid for the first time when murder strikes the Art Department of Vanderlyn College. Who poisoned the deputy chairman's morning coffee? Everyone in the department had both motive and opportunity and it will take Lt. Harald's cool, level-headedness to determine who the killer is before he -or she- strikes again.

Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine has said, "Harald is no stereotypical policewoman....Getting to know her is a pleasure;" while the San Diego Union-Tribune says, "Maron combines a lighthearted style, surefooted suspense, and a captivating cast."

REally enjoyed this book. I'm thrilled with all the older books that are being released for eBooks. I love catching up with books by my favorite authors that I missed the first time around.

This is my first venture into the Sigrid Harold series, and I must admit that I struggled with this short book. I felt that a giant tome like Victor Hugo's Les Miserables had been placed in my hands. I actually stopped reading this book, and moved to another book which is something I do not do. Sigrid Harold stands like an ice princess with no emotions and an apartment devoid of a human touch. Margaret Maron seems to be toying with her characterization of Sigrid. What will be her definite attributes? The hint of a friendship or relationship between Ingrid's boss and Ingrid's mother peeks from the shadows. I enjoy art, but the discussion of art in principle hang too heavily in the story. I am unsure if I will read more of this series

As an avid Margaret Maron reader ( the Deborah Knott Series) I was happy to find that an earlier series exists, the Sigrid Harald books, of which this is the first. I like mysteries, and this Is certainly that but the characters especially LT. Harald are very interesting and I look forward to developing a true friendship with her as I read each book in the series.

It's wonderful to see Maron's Sigrid Harald series back in print! I love her Deborah Knott series, too, but I've always had a soft spot for Sigrid! (I'm glad Sigrid and Deborah finally meet in "Three-Day Town".) I love all the references to art throughout the entire series, but especially in "Corpus Christmas". This is an excellent, literate series!
