If you love mystery and herbs, this is the book for you.. China goes to a monastery for a well-deserved retreat. However, she finds unexpected conflict at the convent and becomes involved more and more in the battle over the future of the convent. She sees "accidents" for what they are--murders, and begins to investigate and endangers her own life by doing so.
Part of a fun series of books about a former lawyer turned herbalist and private investigator. Her small town in texas is a compilation of many Texas towns and it holds events found all over the state. Fun read with enought twists to keep you intrigued.
this series is always entertaining, plus, you learn a lot about herbs at the same time.

Another great China Bayles mystery. China has a difficult time coming up with "who done it", thus it is a fun read. Highly recommended!
I think this is the best China Bayles Mystery yet. I really enjoyed reading it and look forward to #6.
Amateur sleuth China Bayles is a former lawyer who now runs an herb shop and keeps getting involved in solving local murders. In this one, China's retreat at a local monestary turns into a pursuit to catch a killer.
I LOVE this series. I have read them out of order, but have enjoyed each one I have read. I can't wait to finish them all. A quick read but very enjoyable.
China visits St. Theresa's Monastery with friend Maggie, a former nun, for a quiet retreat and herbal research.
This picked up the pace and became way better than I thought it would be. Don't let the slowish start fool you! Wittig Alber delivers. I'm ready for the next one.
China Bayles Mystery #5. Another good one by Wittig Albert. Her writing is consistent without being repetitive, her characters have real depth and are varied enough to keep things interesting. This one had a decent plot, interesting twists and turns and a lot of emotional depth.
