This is a weekly event that highlights a book that we can't wait to be published. It's hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Margaret Maron is a favorite author of mine and has been for many, many years. She writes the Judge Deborah Knott mystery series and I am always so very happy to see that a new book will be coming out soon. Her books are must-buys for me and I read them right away. So, I'm current on this series. Deborah is a district court judge and her husband, Dwight, is a Sheriff's Deputy who investigates major crimes. Deborah has 11 brothers and a huge family. Her father, Kezzie Knott, was a bootlegger in his early years. The first book in the series is The Bootlegger's Daughter.
Margaret Maron was a recipient of the Grand Master Award by the Mystery Writers of America in 2013. She will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award at this year's Bouchercon, the World Mystery Convention, being held in Raleigh, North Carolina in October. I'm looking forward to the 20th book in the Deborah Knott series:
