    Margaret Maron is a great storyteller, and although she has written a series based in New York, North Carolina appears to be where her heart is. Although Deborah Knott does not appear in "Bloody Kin," we get a different, more family-oriented view of Dwight Bryant, so we feel that we are on familiar ground. Our heroine, Kate, is portrayed as a woman determined to make a place for herself in a strange land after her husband, Jake, is killed, and she does so admirably. Jake's family members, however, the few that are still alive, are not helpful in this regard. The child is a welcome ray of sunshine in an otherwise dismal situation, and Kate establishes a wonderful rapport with her. Another reviewer was apparently horrified that Kate smoked during her pregnancy; on the other hand, the story takes place in the very heart of tobacco country, and I was more impressed by how little she smoked. As a story that stands apart from both the Sigrid Harrald series and the Deborah Knott stories, "Bloody Kin" is a fine read.

    Great book by a fantastic NC author. I have read most of the books in this series.

    As a fan of Margaret Maron's Deborah Knott series, I looked forward to this book set in the same area. Kate was a fairly well-developed character, and it was interesting to see deputy Dwight Bryant in a light other than with Knott. The glimpses of her design work were good details to include, and it further developed the setting of the novel. Of all of Maron's writing assets, setting has to be one of her best. Throughout this book, I was horrified to read about the main character smoking as well as drinking alcohol while pregnant . An otherwise intelligent, pleasant character, Kate was marred by these habits, and the reader goes away from the book respecting her less. Believability may have been what Maron was after, or realism, but she could have found more constructive ways to get to the same end. In all, the book was an enjoyable read, and I still look forward to more of the Colleton County conundrums.

    I'm a fan of Margaret Maron. This is an earlier book I had missed. I liked it and am glad I came across.

    Good plot and great local color if you are familiar with eastern NC.
