Margaret Maron grew up on a farm near Raleigh and lived in Brooklyn for many years. Returning to her North Carolina roots prompted Margaret to write a series based on her own background, the first of which, BOOTLEGGER'S DAUGHTER, was a Washington Post bestseller and swept the major mystery awards for 1993. CHRISTMAS MOURNING is the sixteenth book in the acclaimed Deborah Knott series. Visit her website at www.margaretmaron.com.

  • On SAND SHARKS:
    "Maron writes with such a strong sense of place that you can even smell the ocean air on Wrightsville Beach.  The plot, populated with enticing characters, moves swiftly; an essential read for Maron fans and mystery lovers."

  • "Maron's homespun evocation of people and place is typically pitch-perfect, her use of the judicial milieu skillful--and her engaging heroine as welcome a companion as you could wish for under a beach umbrella."

  • On DEATH'S HALF ACRE
    "[Maron] skillfully portrays the growing tension between family farmers and suburbanites. As always Maron weaves in a couple of subplots that keep things interesting and allow her to touch on a range of social issues." (Associated Press ).

  • On CHRISTMAS MOURNING
    "Maron makes you yearn to belong to an extended family, bake Christmas cookies with the Knott nieces and nephews and climb into Dwight's arms. She plots like a modern-day Christie, but the North Carolina charm is all her own." (Kirkus).

  • "Warm and authentic family relationships are the heart of this evergreen series."
