Format: Mass Market Paperback
Although I enjoyed the slice of Southern life that Maron serves up, I was disappointed that the "mystery" was so low-key. The story was almost totally devoid of tension and suspense. I haven't read any of the other books in this series, so I don't know if this is typical for this writer. Interesting characters were introduced but not developed enough. Her huge Southern extended family is interesting; but I wanted more!

Guess I am by my self but I did not care much for Home Fires. I have read five other books in this series and liked them all. I could just not get into Home Fires. Deborah's nephew, A.K., is caught turning over headstones in a cemetery, then a black church is torched and a body found in the ashes. Was A.K. involved is this too? It seems to me that a big part of the book was spent in talking about Deborah's family. I stayed so confused over whose child was whose and which brother was the 4th born or 2nd born or the third one up from her that I just never got into liking the book. Would recommend skipping this one if you are reading the series.

This author writes like an angel.
The Deborah Knott series shows that mystery writing can be highly enjoyable and compelling without unnecessarily confusing plotting, gory crime scenes or characters that just take themselves too seriously. I would recommend this author and the Knott series to anyone looking for a good, cosy read.
Needless to say, I am going to snap up all other books written by this author as soon as I can get my hands on them.
Good reading!
