Read in October, 2010

I listened to the audio version of this book. Its been years since I've read one of the Deborah Knott mysteries, but I liked this one. The plot involved several social issues including harsh treatment of immigrant farm workers, domestic violence and eldercare. I also enjoyed the backstory of Deborah's large extended family and her father's efforts to keep the younger generations tied to the family's land. Having lived in North Carolina for several years, I was amused by Deborah's reference to Cary as "the containment area for relocated Yankees". That's where I, a Colorado native, lived while in North Carolina and its true, most of my neighbors were northern transplants to Cary.
