"Judge Deborah Knott prepares for Christmas and her impending wedding in the eleventh mystery in this series. The prenuptial festivities of Knott and her fiancŽ, Dwight Bryant, are interrupted by a shocking car crash that kills an assistant district attorney in Colleton County, North Carolina. Narrator C.J. Critt brings Southern charm and steely determination to Knott as she pursues the suspicious circumstances of her former associate's death. Critt paints a cast of charming friends and backwoods busybodies with a slow pace that might be typical of the South but is annoyingly slow for a mystery fan eager to hear the unfolding events of the story. N.M.C. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
