Talk about Lavender Lies: A China Bayles Mystery

This is the 8th book in the China Bayles series. China and McQuaid are finally getting married and are in the midst of preparations before the wedding when local developer Edgar Coleman is murdered. McQuaid, as acting chief of police investigates and thinks that he may have to postpone at least the honeymoon if not the wedding. In order to prevent this, China jumps in with her friend Ruby and Smart Cookie to investigate, while juggling wedding prep disasters and issues with getting the tea room up and running. The team find many possible suspects including 3 lovers, and a blackmailed town council. There was a little more humor in this one, which I enjoyed. For example, China has to deal with her mother who insists that she can bake the wedding cake, after taking a cake decorating class. Needless to say, she makes some "interesting" test cakes. Things get wild and wooly, but China manages to pull through in the end.
The early books in the China Bales series were the best. I have read most of them, although out of sequence. This story was fun to read. I love that the author uses herbs to carry the stories along and give them meaning and symbolism and I like that the characters are familiar. Each book in the series is different, but the story in "Lavender Lies" goes along with the previous book, "Chile Death". This whole series of books is worth reading.
This was an enjoyable read, The mystery of who was guilty keeps you guessing. Interesting twists and turns spiced with herbal education is a delight read.
Susan Wittig Albert is an interesting author. Not only to I enjoy the mysteries in her books, but also the tidbits about herbs, etc. that she shares. The recipes at the end are always fun and sometimes I have made them. I would recommend this author and her China Bayles series.
I love the China Bayles mysteries! If you like mysteries with good plots and characters this series is a good one. My interest in herbs and gardening particularly drew me to this book, and I wasn't disappointed.
Love this series.
Good story. Like the references to lavender and uses for herbs. Read 2 more books by the author. Will read more....Kathy
just wish I had them in hard back in my I could start over and read the whole series again LOL but you need to start with the first of the series or you get kind of lost..
loved the characters..
