Nominated for both an Agatha and an Anthony Award, Susan Wittig Albert's novels featuring ex-lawyer and herb-shop proprietor China Bayles have won acclaim for their rich characterization and witty, suspenseful stories of crime and passion in small-town Texas.

Now, when China's friend Jo dies of an apparent suicide, China looks behind the quaint façade of Pecan Springs and takes a suspicious look at everyone. And though she finds lots of friendly faces, China is sure that one of them hides the heart of a killer.

Well, I have to say I really enjoyed this book, but I figured that I would. I had to wait a while to get this one from the library but it was worth it. I love the characters and am looking forward to their continued development.

This is one of the best series I've read since Rex Stouts, Nero Wolfe. The first book is a bit slow but each one gets better and better. I especially like the recipes, learning about the different herbs, and how to plant a garden. The on going story of all the characters is also great.

Had trouble getting into this one, but after I got past the first chapter, it was enjoyable. Not bad for my first ever mystery.
