Read full description of the books:
Probably best known for her Judge Deborah Knott Mystery Series, Maron is the author of many critically acclaimed books within the mystery genre (this particular book--a stand alone--nominated for an Agatha Award).
The writing here is good and flows nicely. In addition, there are several intertwined mysteries, all decent enough despite the fact that the ending(s) weren't really a big surprise. I'm willing to chalk that up to my superior deductive reasoning skills rather than a flaw on Maron's part. (LOL)
Unfortunately, the characters were all just a little to flat for me, and not particularly interesting. An okay read, but no where near as good as the first book in her Deborah Knott series.
Ironically, for me, the best part of the book involved the protagonist's fascination with a garden spider in which we are given some interesting tidbits. We have tons of garden spiders during the summer months and like the protagonist, we enjoy feeding them (although the first spider featured below caught this katydid all on her own). They really are beautiful and amazing spiders.
Definitely see this appealing to cozy fans...the book, that is, and not necessarily the spiders.
