" Albert's mysteries are a pleasure to read. I have liked almost all of the Thyme and Seasons herb shop books, and I particularly like the town that Albert has created: Pecan Springs, TX. China Bayles, herbalist and owner of the local herb shop, is a sharply drawn female character. No shrinking violet here--and she is smart and capable as a businesswoman, too. In this latest mystery, Bayles helps Sheriff Blackie Blackwell identity a burned body and search for the missing journalism intern. Lots of red herrings, but always a satisfying read. "
