"In a class with...sleuths V.I. Warshawski and Stephanie Plum," China Bayles deals with a most unwelcome guest...

China Bayles is fit to spit when her husband's troubled ex-wife, Sally, shows up at her herb shop, claiming to be broke with nowhere else to turn. China isn't sure if it's the goodness of her heart or the scent of Christmas wreaths, but she invites Sally to stay.

Then China starts receiving menacing calls from an "ex" of Sally's, who seems to have a connection to the murder of her parents nearly a decade ago. With her P.I. husband out of town, it's up to China to weed out the truth behind whatever it is Sally's running from before danger catches up to all of them....

I love the entire China Bayles series! I have read just about everyone of them and haven't hit a clunker yet. I sure hope this series continues for a long time!

This China Bayles novel is the perfect cozy mystery. The characters are so well drawn that you feel that they are people that you know. China has confidence and insecurity in just the right combination to be a great protagonist. The crime is interesting, though the resolution is a bit simple.

I really enjoyed this book. I had a hard time putting it down. My opinion is, this is the best book in the China Bayles series yet.
