Publisher Description

Best-selling author Susan Wittig Albert sets this cozy mystery in the small West Texas town of Pecan Springs. As the Christmas decorating season approaches, Thyme & Seasons proprietor China Bayles feels overwhelmed. While she tries to balance her new roles of wife and step-mom with the demands of her thriving herbal shop, her business partner-and best friend-Ruby mysteriously disappears. Soon China's cantankerous mistletoe supplier Carl turns up dead. With Ruby missing and friends suspected of murder, China must investigate before tragedy strikes again.

"I enjoyed Mistletoe Man. As always, this is a good mystery. However, I wished the author would have spent more time on the child's reuniting with her biological mother. She did not let us know how the child, Melissa responded hearing the news of her birth, and just let you assume that the child was allowed to stay with her mother after what happened. You'll have to read the book to find out."

    " This was the first Albert book I read. It was near Christmas, stress and exhaustion where high, and this book was such a wonderful excape. The botanical twist with mystry is vary special. "

    " Good one - Ruby attempts to keep part of her life private, bit of role reversal that annoys China. Think everyone knows someone like Aunt Velda, able to get by, but not exactly living in the world recognized by most folks. "

    " Cozy Christmastime easy-reading mystery, very little sex or violence, lots of suspects, just right for those times you want an enjoyable fireside read. The plotline was a little forced but not too bad. Although this title is listed as #9 in the China Bayles series, it can be read as a one-off without any problem (I was a newbie to this mystery series when I selected the title). "
