Another darker cozy from Susan Wittig Albert. This one deals with coaches having sex with students. His murder is not the one being investigated, though.
Great book!! Just when you think you have it figured out, it takes another twist.
I enjoy this series of books. Always a good mystery but also you learn about herbs and get a couple of recipes as well.
In this one China agrees to discretely look into an accusation of sexual abuse which has been made against a VERY popular football coach. She uncovers more than she bargained for. An apparent suicide occurs, then a murder.
Fourteenth in the China Bayles herbal mystery series set in the hill country of Texas in fictional Pecan Springs. This book takes on the issue of the importance of high school football in Texas, where coaches and players are gods and reign supreme and anyone standing in their way are bugs to be squashed. When an official at the local school receives an anonymous tip that the current Pecan Springs coach has a thing for teenage girls, she asks China to investigate on the sly and see if she can come up with any concrete evidence before the Golden Boy is accused openly--which could get very messy. China begins looking into things, and also discovers some disturbing information about her own past via some letters discovered when her father's secretary passes on. An enjoyable visit to Pecan Springs with China, Ruby, McQuaid and the gang.
Another greatbook in this series
