Long Upon the Land by Margaret Maron

This is book #20 in the Deborah Knott series.  It is best to read them in order, starting with The Bootlegger’s Daughter.  Deborah’s huge family is introduced gradually, and if you jumped in with #20 I think you’d be overwhelmed.  Family and place are a significant part of the series and this volume exemplifies it.  After a body is found on Knott family land Deborah and Dwight look very close to home to find the killer.  In the background, Deborah’s search into her mother’s past tells the story of Sue’s courtship with Kezzie Knott.  A sweet love story that just adds to the richness of the series.
