"In a class with...sleuths V.I. Warshawski and Stephanie Plum," China Bayles deals with a most unwelcome guest...
China Bayles is fit to spit when her husband's troubled ex-wife, Sally, shows up at her herb shop, claiming to be broke with nowhere else to turn. China isn't sure if it's the goodness of her heart or the scent of Christmas wreaths, but she invites Sally to stay.
Then China starts receiving menacing calls from an "ex" of Sally's, who seems to have a connection to the murder of her parents nearly a decade ago. With her P.I. husband out of town, it's up to China to weed out the truth behind whatever it is Sally's running from before danger catches up to all of them....

I always enjoy a Susan Wittig Albert book ! I feel like I grew up with China and Ruby --- i love their characters. i tried one of the recipes in the back -- China's Easy Slow-cook Sausage-Corn Chowder. It was really good -- definitely an easy recipe -- and a 'keeper'. ;-) Read full review
Review: Holly Blues (China Bayles #18)User Review - J. Mummey - Goodreads
The beginning was a little too lecture heavy for fiction (medicinal herb warnings, blah, blah, CYA, blah, blah), it was an irritant. I'm glad I continued reading, the story turned out to be a delightfully suspenseful, clever, scary murder mystery. Read full review
