Another installment of the Judge Deborah Knott series. I really enjoy spending time with her and her North Carolina family. We almost never see her in Court...but there's lots of local color, family drama and whodunit excitement. In this one, there's a monster hurricane coming in, and several local men are on the suspect list when a run-around wife turns up dead in a motel room. It's bubble gum, but it won't rot your teeth or your brain.

After beautiful young cheerleader dies in a car crash that was not an accident, Judge Deborah Knott and sheriff's deputy Dwight Bryant must uncover what really happened before more death further clouds the Christmas season in North Carolina's Colleton County.

Deborah informally gathers information from friends and family about circumstances surrounding the cheerleader’s death while her husband does a formal investigation. There’s a small town feel to the story. There’s a good mix of warm Christmas moments with Deborah’s big extended family. The ending is a bit implausible but it was still an easy story to read.… (mais)

I was disappointed in this book...largely because it wandered all over the place. Descriptions of clothing and scenes were long and drawn out. The plot was hard to follow and the characters There was quite a bit of time wasted chatting about locations and people in North Carolina about which I cannot relate because I've not been there, nor lived there. In fact, it was so boing that I skipped about three hours of this nearly ten hour listen....just to figure out if she won the election. Not as bad as a DNF, but nearly so.… (mais)

Very good first book in a series, even though I did figure out whodunit before the main character did! I like the rural North Carolina setting & Deborah Knott's job as a criminal lawyer makes her investigating less of a stretch than most cosy mystery protagonists.
