DESIGNATED DAUGHTERS by Margaret Maron
Margaret Maron has written a mystery with heart where some of the miscreants get what they deserve and some get mercy. The Knott family saga continues with more life in the characters and more fun in the tales they tell and live out.
Well plotted and with enough red herrings to challenge the best armchair detectives, DESIGNATED DAUGHTERS tells of young and old, rich and poor, cheated and cheater, but mostly Maron spins a tale of life. Her characters resonate with vitality.
Maron fans will find the characters familiar as they age, grow up, mellow and are revealed in this latest novel from a master of the continuing story. If you are reading a Deborah Knott mystery for the first time, you will need the family tree found in the front of the book.
