This is a wonderful series! It's good to collect them and read them in order but not necessary to enjoy these books. The characters are fun and so likeable you will think of them as friends. The plot is well developed and the pace is excellent. Definitely a page turner!!!

Albert's books are well written and good vacation reading. Enjoyed this mystery while on the beach.

New readers shouldnt start here, too much character background will be missing. China Bayles, a lawyer turned herb-shop owner, is preparing for the towns annual Picklefest when the owner of the pickle factory, and the benefactor of the festival, turns up murdered. Lots of threads lead back to the murdered woman embezzlement, jealousy, land deals gone wrong, unwed mothers and China manages to sort out a number of family complications along with solving the murder. This is a pretty good entry in the series, although I did manage to put it down several times while reading.

If you enjoy this China Bayles series, check out the other series Albert has written. "The Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter" and the series written with her husband Bill, as Robin Paige. The last is a historical mystery series. One of my favorite authors!
