    " A book doesn't have to be 5 stars to be perfect. The China Bayles series, read by Johanna Parker, is one that I return to often, just because the characters are like old friends and Albert's consistently good writing makes each book a satisfying vistit. Oh, and I nearly always learn something new or develop a new insight into something in my own life. These are terrific books, leading me on each time to finish up quickly. "

    " More intense than some of the others--more people get killed, although it's not gory, but it gets to be more than I wanted to read about. Ties up some loose ends set up in the previous books in the series in a dramatic fashion. Albert varies from the usual first-person China Bayles point of view by including some chapters from her husband Mike McQuaid's point of view. That would have been fine except she puts all the McQuaid chapters in relentless present tense, like a new journalism student who's been told that's what you're supposed to do--perhaps an editorial suggestion to further distinguish the two voices? Anyway, it doesn't work for me; I found it distracting. Otherwise a good read. "

    " I like the style. McQuaid sort of speaking was different, but it worked well. Very enjoyable. "

    " (3.5 stars) This is the 16th book in the China Bayles series and is the conclusion of a 3 book mini-arc involving China's father. Her recently discovered half brother from a long term affair has been investigating their father's death. He hires China's husband, McQuaid as an investigator. When the wrecked car is located, after being hidden by his mother (formerly their father's secretary). China is still dealing with some conflicting feelings both about her father and the possibilities of murder, when events make a big turn and she becomes fully involved along with McQuaid. The plot thickens with some potential conspiracies going back to her father's law firm and some of their more shady clients. In her personal life, China is dealing with becoming more acquainted with the niece she never knew and is helping her best friend, Ruby, recover from a loss in her life. As usual, the characters are involving, as is the mystery. The book has several chapters written from McQuaid's point of view, and contains recipes and herbal lore. This series continues to be a cut above the typical "cozy mystery" genre. "
