Judge Deborah Knott has been temporarily assigned inland North Carolina to oversee a few cases, including one of division of property case of a divorced couple. She is in the heart of pottery country. The couple who have divorced are from one of the famous families of potters, the Nordan family.
When the court moves to the studio, the husband is found to have been there first. Judge Knott was with the group who found him dead in his kiln. This is yet another tragedy that has occured in the Nordan family in the past years.
Deborah Knott tries to keep out of the investigation. Yet she has friends in the area. She has to return for another case. And there is this man, a divorced judge... She also would like to try to get one of the discontinued red pieces that made Nordan pottery famous.
This is a great series. The mysteries are integral to the stories, but so is Deborah's personal life. This is another of the cozy series that I enjoyed. The mystery is so-so - I figured it out by three quarters of the way through without trying too hard. Yet overall I enjoyed the book and recommend this one on its own or as part of the series.
