Susan Wittig Albert writes a very engaging mystery series. You really like China Bayles from the first book and can relate to her all through the series. I have very much enjoyed all of Wittig's China Bayles mysteries. If you are looking for a great series to begin reading in the cozy/herbal mystery genre - this is the one for you!
I've been anxious to start this series but find it a bit disappointing because of the liberal dose of liberal politics shoved throughout the "mystery". Without that it would have been much more enjoyable. Not sure if I'll read anymore or the series or not.
Fun, light story....In a case of deadly Halloween hijinks, a holiday prank culminates in a brutal murder. China's friend Ruby becomes a prime suspect when a mudslinging minister accuses her of New Age witchdraft. And it's up to China to unmask the real killer.
I love mysteries and herbs so I was very excited to see this book. The book was engaging but the amount of liberal ideology injected into this book was a complete turn off. If I am reading a fiction book I want to relax, not be subjected to a political agenda.
One of a series featuring China Bayles and herb shop in Pecan Springs, Texas. Set at Halloween time, this fun book dabbles in witchcraft (well not really, but the accusation is there) and life in a small town.
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 best friend becomes the suspect a brutal Halloween murder.
