It's Christmas in rural North Carolina's Colleton County and Judge Deborah Knott is looking forward to a family celebration when a tragedy clouds the holiday season. A beautiful young cheerleader dies in a car crash and the community is devastated by her death. Sheriff's Deputy Dwight Bryant soon learns that her death was not a simple accident, and more lives may be lost unless he and Deborah can discover why she died. ( )

Another good entry in this fine and comfortable series. An auto accident and the death of two ne'er do wells seem to be unrelated as the Sheriffs Department starts its investigation. Lots of family events provide many sources of information As the plot unfolds. Deb'bra and Dwight settle into their life with Cal and look forward to the Holidays. An old relationship ending in an accident becomes key to the investigion as does a bag of roadside debris. Links to a NYC detective are revealed fly some senior family member and a belated honeymoon is scheduled. ( )

Not up to Maron's usual standards...simplistic ploy, no character development, and the cast of characters is like reading the early chapters of the Bible...way to many names of people who are doing absolutely nothing, but decorating the scenery. I like Judge Deborah Knott, but this book, must've been written to raise some quick Christmas cash for the author. ( )

I don't really read these Deborah Knott mysteries for the mystery anymore. Not because the mysteries are bad. Generally, and the one in Christmas Mourning is no different, the mysteries are superb and some of the most well crafted I've ever read. But, I can read a million different mysteries, this series is the only place that I can read the awesome story lines of Deb Knott, her crazy awesome extended family, her hilarious friends and even her Dwight Bryant and his son Cal. It's the subplots, like why in the world Cal suddenly is calling Deb 'she, 'her' etc instead of Deborah. That's the kind of filler for the mystery that makes the story just leap off the page.

The mystery is the story of a teen named Mallory, a senior in high school, a popular cheerleader, who crashes her car in a one car crash. Lots of theories get explored throughout the novel and the ending, while not exactly horribly surprising, was a good ending.

All in all it was another Maron gem. Now comes the real hard part of the Margaret Maron books. Waiting for the next one to be created and published. ( )
