    After falling in love with Margaret Maron in 1993 and devouring every book in this series, I was disappointed with Three-Day Town. Feels like Maron is trying to resurrect her Sigrid Harald character from another series through Deborah Knott. Adding the zero-personality Sigrid Harald character to the more dynamic Judge Deborah Knott is not helping either. Maron really put Judge Knott on the back burner for this one and it's supposed to be ABOUT Deborah Knott...

I'm sad because I've always looked forward to them. Maybe #19 will be back to the old Judge Knott and Major Bryant.

    From the beginning crime scenes, I found myself yelling at the characters, “Why are you touching everything? You’re going to contaminate the evidence!” Even Deborah seemed to have lost her good sense throughout the book. Also, the last paragraph in the book turned my stomach inside out, and I do NOT believe a woman could have written those lines. No way. They must have been added by a male editor.

    I've read some Margaret Maron, and collected several in preparation for the inevitable binge. I've only read a couple of the Sigrid Haralds, though, and so was pleased that Three-Day Town (which I received from Netgalley, thank you) was part of the Deborah Knott series; these books have been on my radar for a while but somehow never actually wound up in my hands, so I looked forward to meeting Judge Knott.

I've only read a couple of the Sigrid Haralds, though, and so was pleased that Three-Day Town (which I received from Netgalley, thank you) was part of the Deborah Knott series; these books have been on my radar for a while but somehow never actually wound up in my hands, so I looked forward to meeting Judge Knott. I don't really like starting in the middle of a series (instant spoilers for every book before it), but I have to say, I found this a great place to break in. And then, to my surprise (not having read the synopsis), who should enter the picture but Sigrid Harald. I do feel obliged to remark that the book shares one of what I feel are the besetting sins of "cozy" mysteries - to wit, the fact that death follows the featured character(s) around like a stray puppy. It's inevitable, I know, but stretches my suspension of disbelief more than most fantasies. In these series, Sigrid Harald is a homicide cop, and so has every reason to keep encountering death; Deborah Knott is a judge married to a cop, and is therefore in a situation where she might do so also. However, this book sends her and her husband on vacation - a week in New York, their long-delayed honeymoon. And within forty-eight hours someone is dead in their borrowed apartment. That out of the way (and, really, who cares?), it's a great story. The writing is so fluid and full of character I can't imagine why I haven't read more Margaret Maron. Coming off a recent stretch of Carol O'Connell's Mallory novels, read far more recently than the Sigrid books, I'm seeing a resemblance between those two main characters; Sigrid isn't a psychopath, but she is a social misfit in some of the same ways. This could be one reason I haven't read more Maron, if my ambivalence toward Sigrid here is evidence. I was a little sorry every time the narrative switched over from the first-person intimate of Deborah Knott to the third-person chilly of Sigrid Harald. *That* being said, the sure-handed telling of the story is a sight to see. Neither main character has all the facts, and their relationship (all but nil, and not likely to grow warmer) does not see them swapping confidences. In the meantime, other secondary characters go about with bits of information, leaving the reader to wait until either Deborah or Sigrid makes the necessary connection and resulting discovery. There is one aspect of the story (where the obscene statue came from), revealed to the reader in a flash-back prologue, which is never revealed to the main characters. This book is obviously the product of a seasoned writer. I can't say I adore Deborah, and I can't even say I much like Sigrid (though I'm intrigued by her); I found the evolution of the murder mystery a little far-fetched; even so, all in all, it was a good read.

    I have randomly read a few titles in Margaret Maron's seventeen strong Deborah Knott Mysteries series but it has been a while. Three-Day Town was actually a great title to pick up because Deborah and Dwight are in New York on a belated honeymoon so the complex relationships in North Carolina are less crucial to the storyline, not that they don't manage to find kin in the Big Apple. During their stay Deborah has been asked to deliver a package to a distant relative but before she is able to, the I have randomly read a few titles in Margaret Maron's seventeen strong Deborah Knott Mysteries series but it has been a while. Three-Day Town was actually a great title to pick up because Deborah and Dwight are in New York on a belated honeymoon so the complex relationships in North Carolina are less crucial to the storyline, not that they don't manage to find kin in the Big Apple. During their stay Deborah has been asked to deliver a package to a distant relative but before she is able to, the statue inside is stolen and a man murdered in their borrowed apartment. Ironically the package was intended for the mother of NYPD Lt Sigrid Harald who takes the lead on the homicide investigation. Readers familiar with Margaret Maron will recognise Sigrid who featured in her own series, the last of which was published in 1995. The victim of murder is the popular super widely considered an honest guy but the Upper West Side apartment building is seething with secrets and someone didn't want theirs revealed. Maron has created some very interesting characters including a kleptomaniac cleaner with social anxiety disorder, who really add interest to the story. In fact I'm impressed with Maron's ability to create well developed personas for even the minor characters that appear. Deborah and Sigrid are also an interesting juxtaposition in both personality and investigative style. Deborah is a southern charmer, warm and friendly who can not help but nose around the investigation while Sigrid is reserved and coolly analytical of the evidence. It's a complex but neat, well paced plot with a plethora of suspects and a variety of possible scenario's to consider. There are plenty of twists and I admit to being unsure who was responsible until just before the culprit was revealed. There are also two minor subplots, one involving the provenance of the missing murder weapon and one involving Deborah's nephews and nieces back home, to add depth the murder mystery. Three-Day Town is an entertaining cozy mystery that works well as a stand alone and may pique your interest in the series if it's unfamiliar to you. For fans this installment is something a little different, letting Deborah and Dwight spend some time much deserved time together away from Colleton County.

    I've been excited to get to this book since I found out that it is a crossover between Margaret Maron's two series. Deborah Knott and her husband go to New York and get wrapped up in a homicide investigation with Sigrid Herald. Like fan fiction, except actually written by the author! And it did not disappoint.

    Rating 3.5 Let me first say, I was hooked on Margaret Maron after reading "A Bootlegger's Daughter" which swept all the mystery awards back in 1993. I've enjoyed every Knott story Ms. Maron has written. On one hand, I was looking forward to reading this tale because this would be the first time that Ms. Maron has written Deborah and Sigrid in the same story. On the other hand, I began reading this story with sadness because I learned that this would be the last story with Deborah Knott.

On the other hand, I began reading this story with sadness because I learned that this would be the last story with Deborah Knott. I hope this isn't true, especially after reading this book. I was expecting a lot in this story about Deborah and Dwight, but this tale is more about Sigrid and the mystery itself. I really wanted to love this book but there were two problems. The first is this book just seems to plod along. There are points of excitement when I thought the book would really take off, but it didn't. Also, at times I found the `view hopping' -the shift from Sigrid to Deborah's perspective - tiresome, especially when it didn't seem to move the story along. The best thing about this tale was the realistic love and affection between Deborah and Dwight. They're a perfect fit and their chemistry always draws me in. There just wasn't enough of that for me. Overall, I hope this isn't the last we see of Deborah because I want to remember her in her southern world with her entire clan around her. Please Ms. Maron, give us one more story with Deborah. How about this... Deborah is pregnant and an old enemy of hers (or Dwight's) is out for revenge. This would rally the entire Knott clan around our couple. There's a lot of possibility here Ms. `M'. Well... a book lover can dream, can't she?

    BOTTOM LINE: Nice blend of the two series (Lt. Sigrid Harald, Judge Deborah Knott), while also being a beautiful homage to classic mystery styles and sensibilities: a beautiful heroine and hero, an intelligent police Lieutenant and friends, murder in a closed setting (apartment building in a snowstorm) and a plethora of possible suspects carefully delineated and presented for our perusal.

The setting of THREE-DAY TOWN is classic Mr. & Mrs. North style, and starts out quite similarly to that first Lockridges' novel: during a wild party at their apartment house, a nice couple quite literally fall over a dead body, meet up with a kindly police Lieutenant, explore the mostly-chic environs of NYC during difficult weather (for the Norths it was a heat wave, Knott is in NYC during a big snowstorm), and meet several odd - but interesting - New Yorkers. Readers get to follow the police as they attempt to solve the crime. For, despite the reputation the Mr. & Mrs. North series has gotten over the years (probably due to the TV show), the main crime solver in that series was Lt. Weigand of the NYC police, and most of the first (and many of the subsequent) novels mainly follow him and his squad as they work out the details of the crimes. And the pattern holds in this novel as well, to my delight - Lt. Sigrid Harald is center-stage about half the time, as the viewpoint shifts back and forth between Deborah and Sigrid, allowing us to see the crime and the solution from several points of view. It's nicely, and smoothly done, but... [full review at ReviewingtheEvidence]

    I wanted to like this better than I did. I'm tired of the "aw shucks, we're from the south in the big city" style of setting up a story. There had to be a better way for the characters to be all together. And I'm struggling with the portrait of Deborah at this point in the series. Anyone who can stay in an apartment where someone was murdered probably has it together enough to notice if a door is shut and to carry a working cell phone.

I thought the whodunnit was in the style of Agatha Christie, so the pieces of the story technically worked, but I wanted something more to make it more believable. And I have to say that I found the last two pages to be cringe-inducing, schlocky, and I can assume meant as foreshadowing for the next book.

    This book takes Deborah and her husband to NYC for their honeymoon. I liked hearing about NY and their activities there, but the 'mystery' aspect kind of sucked. Half of the book was told from Sigrid's perspective, a cop in NYC. This left me wondering why. Is she going to be a character in another book? Sometimes Maron annoys me with her perspective changes.

    Interesting mixture of voices and POV. Maron brings her two series--Sigrid Harald and Deborah Knott--together seamlessly. I have some quibbles with the ending, but overall a good addition to both series.

    "Three-Day Town" is a very lightweight murder mystery (think Agatha Christie), with some interesting characters and lots of red herrings tossed here & there. Some of those red herrings seemed gratuitous, especially concerning Phil, the building super. The story begins with Judge Deborah Knott and Deputy Sheriff Dwight Bryant taking a belated honeymoon in New York City in January. Of course there's a blizzard. And of course they find a dead body in the apartment where they're staying.

And some of the southern witticisms were a bit over the top. The plot is pretty predictable - certainly not a nail biter. But it can be a welcome change after reading more heavy duty and/or gory thrillers. Margaret Maron is a fine writer, though "Three-Day Town" is not her best work.

    Three-Day Town is a continuation of Christmas Morning Judge Deborah Knox and her husband Sheriff 's Deputy Dwight Bryant, never having taken a honeymoon, has now found the time to take one. The couple travel by train to New York to stay in a relative’s condo and plan to honeymoon. Of course, murder follows them. There are a lot of twists and turns and smoke and mirrors that kept me guessing. Three-Day Town is full of intrigue, mystery and fun. C.J. Critt did an excellent telling the story.

    The Deborah Knott mysteries are my go-to cozy mysteries.

    Another great mystery in a series I love. Will miss it when I finish the series. I like reading series in the order they were written, but have skipped around a few times in this series (like reading a Christmas setting one out of order because of the "season"). But this book did introduce the lead in her other series, so I got a preview and believe I will enjoy it also. Again, I did not have the culprit pegged! Read and enjoy!

    I didn't know Maron had another series, so I was baffled at the crossover. Baffled and not that excited by the Sigrid Harald character. The mystery felt a bit limp as well, though there were some good aspects. Too many characters. I lost track of who was who. Also, the final little conversation between Deborah and Dwight was just ooky. I didn't know Maron had another series, so I was baffled at the crossover.

    New York, New York What could be better than a week in a New York apartment to celebrate their delayed honeymoon? Before you know it though they’re tripping over dead bodies and getting to know the NY Police department way better than ever planned. Sometimes it’s the person you least suspect that’s guilty.

    I’m not a huge fan of the other series that the author merged with the Judge Knott characters, but I thought this crossover was a successful one. The plot offered lots of opportunities for a mystery fan to generate solutions to the wide array of puzzling questions, but there were still plenty of twists & turns that kept me guessing until the climax. A good read!

    As always, Maron had turned in a solid read. Southern Judge Deborah Knott and her husband of a year are visiting New York City. While there, they are connected to several murders and thefts. And they prove that everyone from the South is connected to each other, whether it's the officer working the case or a man who was a defendant in one of the judge's old cases.

    I didn't expect much, so I wasn't disappointed. It wasn't too imaginative or mysterious. Or challenging. It was more about logistics and there were too many characters (specifically, doormen) to keep track of who was who. I'm guessing that her mysteries set in N. Carolina have more local flavor and are better. The judge does seem to have a colorful family. I didn't expect much, so I wasn't disappointed. It wasn't too imaginative or mysterious. Or challenging.

    Happily working my way backwards through the Deborah Knott series and interweaving the Sigrid Harald books too. Readers who like to solve the crime just ahead of Deborah and Sigrid will like this one if they pay attention to opportunity (means and motive are more subtle here).

    Clever Integra tion of the two series. I really enjoyed finding the two protagonists thrown together. Marina genius with her web of characters overlapping is in full swing. Excellent mystery.
