    Oh China, what has happened to you You ve gone from an interesting, three dimensional character to a busybody who somehow ramrods her agenda down everyone s throats The plot of this book wasn t half bad though the various drug agencies had me confounded , but China s attempts at mystery solving telling the chief of police what she ll do and what she won t, inserting herself in investigations, giving a possible killer her home address were baffling I am all for suspension of disbelief, but this was ridiculous.Bring back the old China Please

    This book cleared up questionable information about Ruby s boyfriend Colin and dealt with a new issue of Ruby s mother s declining health During Ruby s absence to care for her mother, China became involved in investigating two murders McQuaid was gone, looking into China s father s 16 year old death and employed by her step brother Brian was busy, so most of this book centered around China alone with some participation by police chief Sheila It was interesting, well written, and held the reader s attention I enjoyed it.

    I think I have found a new mystery author to read This is book 15 in a series of apparently 26 books currently The author is a former English professor with an apparent love for all things botanical I enjoyed the character of China Bayles, a lawyer turned independent business owner, whose curiosity and concern for her friends puts her in the midst of solving the murder of her best friend s former lover As she uncovers the truth about several characters who are not what they seem to be, she ultimately discovers the truth about the murder.

    I wish the Whiz would make another appearance and that problems would not be solved by killing off the problematic partner in a relationship or crime I m getting so that I recognize the clues too early in the book and so at the end don t feel satisfied with the result.

    This was a decent read, though the identity of the killer came out of nowhere China was rather bossy and annoying in this one, including a few TSTL moments Overall I enjoyed it well enough.

    This sucked Not only was the story incredibly implausible in places, the writing was padded with so much historical and plant information, I found myself skipping paragraphs in order to keep the plot moving There is also a great deal of padding when it comes to describing the clothes people wear and how those clothes provide clues of the person s character What an insult If China Bayles is an alter ego of the author, she is a judgmental know it all.I was so disappointed by the decline in the quality of the writing One example Forget it, Smart Cookie, I said firmly My house My rules Dear God in heaven That is something you would read in a class of aspiring writers held in a local community center What is with the Smart Cookie and The Whiz and Big Red Mamma nicknames I find things like this to be an insult to my intelligence What has happened to Albert These books used to be very entertaining and smart The IQ of the past two or three books in this series has plummeted drastically And, the plots are getting thinner and thinner while the padding about local history, plant information and unnecessary details about clothes and how what people wear and how they look indicates what type of person they are almost drives the reader into a catatonic state I will pick up the next book in this series but it may be the book that makes me decide to give up on China Bayles as a character and Susan Wittig Albert as a writer.
