Publisher Description

National best-selling author Susan Wittig Albert's poetic beauty and West Texas flavor permeate her China Bayles mysteries. The high school principal asks China to secretly investigate the popular football coach who led the Panthers to six state championships. Soon after China confirms the coach's predilection for teenage girls, one of his victims turns up dead and suspicion falls upon the lecherous coach. "Albert's characterization is strong-China delights as ever ."-Publishers Weekly

"The author's use of recipes and herbs made this an interesting read above and beyond the story itself, plus, I have a fondness for writers living in Texas! I called Texas my home for eighteen years and loved it. She writes about a sore subject (especially for right now, the news from Penn State) for any of us but does it with tact and empathy. I liked her pacing and visuals. Living in a small "football" crazy town as I do, I could really relate to this setting. I would recommend this book. Bleeding Hearts"

    " Not my usual fare but I got to interview the author and meet her when she visited a local library. Not a bad book either. I loved mystery as a kid, so it was a nice return. "

    " Susan Wittig Albert has kept me glued to a book again. I really enjoy spending time with China Bayles and her family/friends. This installment turns a bit serious as China investigates allegations that the high school's football coach has molested female students. She also discovers a disturbing secret that changes what she knows about her family. "Smart Cookie" also reveals some information about Ruby's boyfriend that potentially threatens Ruby's happiness. This was a good one! "

    " Not as good as it thinks it is. Even I could guess which direction the plot was turning in - and I'm no good at mysteries. Still an enjoyable, yet predictable read. "

    " I usually don't read series with puns in the title but I'm totally getting into mysteries lately. This is a cute cozy mystery series if you like that sort of thing. It's set in the Hill Country so it's fun if you're familiar with Texas. "
