"It's mid-April in Pecan Springs, and China is renting her guest cottage to Kelly Kaufman, who needs a temporary place to live as she contends with a very acrimonious divorce from her husband, Rich. One nasty point of dispute is her part ownership of the Comanche Creek Brewing Company, which she is refusing to sell. At the same time, as a nurse employed by a local hospice, Kelly has discovered instances of suspicious practices. Even more disturbing, she suspects that a patient was murdered. Kelly's knowledge could be dangerous, and she wants to get guidance from China on what to do. But on her way to China's house, Kelly is forced off the road and critically injured, putting her in a medically induced coma. Now it's up to China to determine who wanted her out of the picture. Was it her soon-to-be ex? His new lover--who happens to be the sister of China's friend Ruby? Or someone connected with the corruption at the hospice? China owes it to her friend to uncover the truth--but she may be putting her own life at risk..."--

Even the name Pecan Springs comforts my mind, and the herb shop, the crystal cave, and the tea room are all places I would love hang out in. This time murder, fraud, and whistle-blowers fall on China Bayle's doorstep, and lead her to perilous discoveries. Even Mcquaid, her P.I. hubby, seems to be on a secret and dangerous mission. All the folk we've met before enrich this tale. Recipes include blood orange liqueur and granite.

Another page turning mystery in the China Bayles series.

I have read them all. This one cites extensively from Amy Stewart's "The Drunken Botanist," which sits on my cookbook shelf. That's good. I will keep reading the series, though I am impatient with the story line threads that have Ruby with magical powers of foretelling the future. Yuk. And I did not appreciate it when China totally departed from rationality (spoiler alert?). So, "3", not "4".
