    Who wouldn't like to live in a town where herbal stores cafes and breweries that want to make herbal infused beer coexists with people who love to garden cook and brew tea? Maybe the murder victim but hey he may have deserved it who knows?Even if you haven't read any of the other books in this series plunge right in It's a leisurely read not so much cozy as conversational with China narrating the storyline as well as the way the town came to be botanical friendly You'll learn about her history including her marriage and adopted daughter and you'll meet the townspeople The murder suspect this time around is a hospice nurse who is staying in China's bb a renovated barn that is utterly charming She may have learned about nefarious dealings by management but China will have a hard time learning after she disappears without a traceEach chapter opens with China uoting from articles she's written pieces from Susan Wittig Albert's own writings about herbs or excerpts from historical herbalists Between the openings and Albert's deft way of describing the gardens herbs and dishes you'll pause often to imagine and to breathe As always recipes are included so you can partake of some of the delicaciesThoroughly enjoyable Thank you NetGalley for providing me with a copy in exchange for a fair review

    Well written I did wonder how come it was okay for China's husband to lie to her face tell the truth to the whole town but not her and then why China thought it was all her fault He didn't even apologize Maybe I missed something I also thought that the reason given by China to start the denouement was stupid; I never have thought China was stupid but this certainly was

    Excuse meThis series never gets old for me Visiting China and company in Pecan Springs Texas is like coming home and seeing old friends Ruby's scatterbrained sister Ramona has bought interest in a local brewery and is dating the still married owner The owner's wife Kelly is a friend of China's that needs a place to lay low while she gets herself together Kelly hints to China that she knows of a possible murder and needs her help Unfortunately Kelly is injured in a serious accident before she can inform China of the detailsI love visiting China and Ruby's shops I'm pretty sure I would hang out there all the time if this was a real place I love the tea room and all things herbs The recipes in the book are uite interesting and I usually find myself trying one or two from each bookThe crime that Kelly needs help with deals with medical fraud and is rather disturbing I'm sure it happens all the time but it really bothers me that those in my chosen field could do this to people It is very obvious that the author researched the subject and it is very well writtenI was a little surprised at China being so whiny about Mcuaid being away Yes he does seem to end up in harrowing situations but her main concern was a feeling of self worth involving an old flame I would like to think that after all the time together that China would know that Mcuaid is there for herThis is a well written book that kept my attention I had figured out the fraud and the murderer before it was revealed It is no way distracted from the storyI know I say this with every book but this is probably my favorite series of all time I'm slowly catching up so that i can be ready for the next book which won't be released for another year

    After twenty four stories the new China Bayles Mystery is as fresh as the herbs mentioned throughout The first thing I know about a new China Bayles book is I’m going to learn so many new things Practically every chapter begins with information on different herbs spices and whatever each individual book is about The second thing I know is I’m in for an exciting fast moving read BLOOD ORANGE lives up to all of those expectations This book touched on so many subjects The everyday running of China’s many businesses the world of beer brewing and even hospice care Oh and murder Like it or not murder does seem to be a business for China While that may sound to be all over the place confusing author Susan Wittig Albert blends is all flawlessly into an intricate and entertaining mystery that will have fans and new readers alike enthralled Once you red BLOOD ORANGE you’ll understand why this such a long running series Don’t forget to check out the back of the book for some tasty recipes

    This is the first in the China Bayles series books I have read and I must say that I need to go back and read them from the beginningthey're just that good Having read the previous books in the series wasn't an absolute necessity as the author does a fine job of providing the backstory throughout the book China has such a dynamic personality so much so that she fairly leaps off the pagethe mystery adds to her dynamics with the way she goes about solving the case You feel her emotions as she worries about her husband and cares for her daughterwhile at the same time never missing a beat in puzzling together the mystery I thoroughly enjoyed the plant references throughout the book and the recipes provided at the end as welldefinitely going to give them a try I look forward to additional China Bayles stories as this author now has me hooked for This book was provided by Netgalley for my honest review

  8. Holly McIntyre Holly McIntyre says:

    I do so like China Bayles and the other characters in the Pecan Springs series but I think the herbal premise on which the series is based has worn thin The herb shop expanded to tea room expanded to catering service expanded to BB or airbnb or something similar seems to have exhausted the herbal allusions The reference to blood orange in the title seemed forced to connect to various recipes China was trying out not an integral part of the crime itself As for Ruby's New Age shop does anyone still do that any?? The crime into which China is drawn concerns a hospice which unfortunately is depicted in only a criminal light with little mention of the real and positive work these institutions if run without fraud really do Still the crime is interesting the pacing good the denouement satisfyingly predictable I think China needs to ditch Thyme Seasons and get her PI licenseTruth in reviewing I received a free copy of this book from netgalleycom

    Nothing like catching up with the characters in your favorite long running cozy series I discovered the China Bayles Herb Shop Mysteries back in 2003 I’ve loved watching the character growth over the years and the setting couldn’t be better for this Texas girl Albert lives very close by and I love spotting the local places she uses for inspiration The fictional town of Pecan Springs is incredibly charming I could definitely see myself freuenting Thyme Seasons the Crystal Cave and enjoying a beer at Beans just so I could witness a dog bringing me my check This mystery kept me on my toes right from the start The story that centered around Medicare fraud was well developed and woven throughout several characters I uite honestly didn’t know who to trust and who to point the finger at for awhile There was a lot of intrigue built up with a sudden disappearance vandalism and an awful car wreck Add in the red herrings with Ramona talk about a character and Mcuaid and I was rather captivated I loved the older characters in this story Never underestimate the keen eye of a neighborhoodnosy watch I always enjoy reading the brief facts that starts off each chapter In this case they focused on all things citrus Being a fan of fruits that fall under this category I found them all rather fascinating I would have uickly signed up for China’s infused liueur class as well Thankfully the book included several recipes that I might just have to try out Loved the good news ending Can’t wait to see how that plays out in book 25

  10. Cheryl Cheryl says:

    Not only are these books herbaceously educational one can glean a bit of legalese between the pages Herein is Medicare fraud narcotics murder and general skulduggery The regular cast of characters fill the pages and ex defense lawyer herb shop owner China Bayles uses her savvy sleuthing to tether in the pieces and make the case An interesting read but I’m still not a fan of authors making “smart” characters do stupid things just for intrigue Especially when said is telling themselves how dumb and illegal it is But that aside another good read in the series
