Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nominated for both an Agatha and an Anthony Award, Susan Wittig Albert's novels featuring ex-lawyer and herb-shop proprietor China Bayles have won acclaim for their rich characterization and witty, suspenseful stories of crime and passion in small-town Texas.

In her first mystery, China's friend Jo dies of an apparent suicide. China searches behind the quaint façade of Pecan Springs and takes a suspicious look at everyone. Though she finds lots of friendly faces, China is sure that behind one of them hides the heart of a killer.

I am in the process of reading the whole series of these books involving a lawyer turned herbalist, China Bayles. These mysteries are well thought out, quite funny in places, and informative about herbs. I get so involved in the stories, I do not want to go to bed. The one thing I do think about though is that like the character Jessica Fletcher of Murder She Wrote fame, I hope I never meet a China Bayles because someone nearby is going to die and I do not want it to be me!
