Three-Day Town (Google eBook)
Three-Day Town is the winner of the Agatha award for best novel.
After a year of marriage, Judge Deborah Knott and Sheriff's Deputy Dwight Bryant are off to New York City for a long-delayed honeymoon. January might not be the perfect time to take a bite of the Big Apple, but Dwight's sister-in-law has arranged for them to stay in her Upper West Side apartment for a week.
Deborah had been asked to deliver a package to Lieutenant Sigrid Harald of the NYPD from Sigrid's Colleton County grandmother. But when the homicide detective comes to pick it up, the package is missing and the building's super is found murdered. Now despite their desire to enjoy a blissful winter getaway, Deborah and Dwight must team up with Lt. Harald to catch the killer before he strikes again.

I remembered that I had read earlier books of Maron's and thought I didn't care for them much. But since this one had pretty good reviews I decided to give it a try as I needed something to pass the time. I can only give it two stars for the plot. There are so many wonderful female protagonists out there, these characters are really trite. Musing on how one's former lover, now dead, didn't compare her beauty to the beauty of super models, wasn't she lucky? Another, thankful to get a break from her spouse on her honeymoon to go shopping for expensive red high heels and boots on 5th avenue in NYC (while enmeshed in murders happening all around her)? Sorry, not my kind of women. And as for the main male character - the last few paragraphs of the book made me want to barf. Sorry, but that is what came to mind.
