    One thought on “Three-Day Town”

    1. Some readers were waiting for the next Judge Deborah Knott mystery from Margaret Maron. I’ve been waiting sixteen years for the next Sigrid Harald book. Maron satisfied all her fans by bringing her characters together in Three-Day Town.Deborah and her husband, Dwight Bryant, have been married for a year, but they finally have time to take a honeymoon. Dwight’s sister-in-law loans them her Manhattan apartment for a week. After taking the train from North Carolina, they expect a week of playin [...]

    2. 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 don't really like starting in the middle of a series (instant spoilers for every book be [...]

    3. 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 not really looking forward to read [...]

    4. 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.

    5. Rating 3.5Let 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. I hope thi [...]

    6. I am the fortunate recipient of an ARC of Margaret Maron's next book in her Deborah Knott series. It won't be officially published until November! Three-Day Town is a book Maron's fans have long been waiting for--Deborah meets Sigrid Harald, star of Maron's first series, in New York City while on her honeymoon with Dwight. The two women are distantly related, and Deborah ferries an item from Sigrid's grandmother to her mother. The item is stolen, a man dies in the condo lent to Deborah and Dwigh [...]

    7. 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. An interesting, entertaining amalgamation of both. [full review at ReviewingtheEvidence reviewingtheevidence [...]

    8. 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. I mean, I just got used to her having Dwight narrate in most books, and now this?

    9. 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.

    10. A seamless combination of two solid series: Sigrid Harald and Deborah Knott, the Carolina's meet NYC. I'll continue wishing for more Sigrid Harald novels, but this was filled in the emptiness a bit.

    11. "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 of [...]

    12. Deborah and her husband Dwight finally get to have a honeymoon after a year of marriage. They were gifted an apartment in NY City to stay in for a week. One draw back is it's January and January in NY City is cold!! Deborah is asked to delivery a package from to Lt. Sigrid Harald from her grandmother. No problem or a big problem. Deborah and Dwight are hardly off the train when mayhem and deaths start happening right in their apartment and things get even worse when a large snowfall hits the cit [...]

    13. So we get Deborah and her husband to new york city. They met Maron's other character Sigrid and they solve a mystery about apartment help stealing and blackmailing. Deborah gets knidnapped and pushed around, but it was better than the others who got killed. it was a good read.

    14. Not a typical reader of Maron's books - I've always enjoyed the Sigrid Harald books, and I was excited to read one last book with her. Maron does a nice job of letting the narrative flow with each character, but the ending was disappointing.

    15. Good read! I remembered the characters from her other book, (that I read) and was able to quickly get into the character background, including the family. I definitely would continue reading other books in the Deborah Knott Mystery Series.

    16. Just for fun mystery set in New York City and featuring characters from two series. I thought it made for a different, interesting read.

    17. Rated it three but it was more like 3.5. Ms. Maron does a fine job. Very enjoyable, human characters, a traditional who-done-it. Fun to read.

    18. I wasn't sure how I'd like a Deborah Knott mystery set so far away from her usual stomping grounds, but this one is a winner (and there's a little bit of home in it, too).

    19. Good mystery and an enjoyable stay in New York during a snow storm. Nice to see rural North Carolinians out of their comfort level in the city. Good characters.

    20. This turns out to be my least favorite of the Deborah Knott Mysteries. While I enjoyed seeing Dwight and Deborah finally going on a honeymoon the mix with Sigrid Harald from another of Maron's series did not resonate with me. The mystery was interesting. I really did not know who done it. I think reading that the book released in 2015 was the last one in the Deborah Knott series was also a downer. While I would not have missed listening to Three-Day Town it just did not catch me as the other boo [...]

    21. Margaret Maron brings two of her detectives together in this book where a visit to New York leads to the discovery of a murder. The book was well plotted and the identify of the murderer was difficult to guess before the end of the book. It read more like a script than a novel.

    22. Three-Day Town is a reference to New York City: James Cameron once referred to it as "the finest three-day town on earth". In Margaret Maron's very fine new entry into her Judge Deborah Knott series, Deborah and her husband travel to New York for a belated honeymoon. Their stay is longer than three days, because they become involved, as usual, in both family business and murder.In 1942, a naive college freshman pilfers a risque and disgusting piece of object d'art from a college professor that s [...]

    23. It’s 1942 in New England and everyone is having fun at a gathering of Stillwater College professors and students. A student who has been ridiculed by one of the art history professors impulsively steals a “vulgar” artifact from his desk. Skip to present-day North Carolina and Dwight Bryant and Deborah Knott are leaving for their long over-due honeymoon. They are taking the train to New York City and will be staying in a condo that belongs to Dwight’s sister-in-law. Kate has asked Dwight [...]

    24. Maron brings together both her lady protags, Judge D'bra and Sigrid Harald, when Dwight and Deborah take a belated honeymoon in New York City. As she has in recent books, Maron departs from the focus on Judge Knott's POV; this time we get bits of the story from Dwight and Sigrid's view. I'm not a huge fan of the technique--it seems uneven and a bit awkward, given that there's no balance between the three--we cut to other viewpoints only when, it seems, the plot needs it to happen. Pretty sure th [...]

    25. Publisher's synopsis:Judge Deborah Knott and Sheriff's Deputy Dwight Bryant are on a train to New York, finally on a honeymoon after a year of marriage. January in New York might not be the perfect time to visit, but they'll take it. The trip is a Christmas present from Dwight's sister-in-law, who arranged for them to stay in an Upper West Side apartment for one week. While in New York, Deborah has been asked to deliver a package to Lt. Sigrid Harald of the NYPD. Sigrid offers to swing by the ap [...]
