I was really sad to learn that Margaret Maron, whose Deborah Knott and Sigrid Harald series I really love, passed away in February of this year. She was one of the few authors that I really kept an eye out for, looking for new books in either series, and now there won’t be any more. Other folks seemed to like her books too – per SYKM, many of them were nominated for, or won, a bunch of different awards. Sigh! Still, right now, one of the later titles in her Deborah Knott series, The Buzzard Table, has gone on sale in the US for $2.99, which is a pretty good sale price.
