PEACE

I don’t remember the time I first a read a China Bayles herb mysteries. This series has long been a favorite. I am looking forward to reading it.


BOOK # 27

PUBLISHER PERSEVERO PRESS

PUBLISHED DATE JUNE 4, 2019

NETGALLEY SAYS

From the New York Times best-selling author of Queen Anne’s Lace comes an intriguing new addition to the widely-acclaimed China Bayles Mysteries.

China and Ruby Wilcox are presenting their annual ”Not Just Plain Vanilla Workshop,” always a huge hit with customers at Thyme & Seasons Herb Shop. But someone involved with the workshop is driven by a deadly motive, and China soon finds herself teaming up with the very pregnant Pecan Springs police chief Sheila Dawson to solve a vanilla-flavored murder.

Sheila, happy to get out from behind the chief’s desk, is investigating the death of a botany professor, a prominent researcher specializing in vanilla orchids. China is trying to help a longtime friend: the dead professor’s ex-wife and a prime suspect in his murder.

I expect some very good reading here. I will probably read late at night with these books. I may read another Nero Wolfe book.

#THE BODY IN THE WETLANDS by Judi Lynn

PEACE


The second book in the Jazzi Sanders series is a good novel with slants toward mystery and romance. If you like your mysteries where the protagonist works with police and doesn't do anything stupid to put herself in danger, you will like this book.
Jazzi works with her cousin Jerod and Ansel, her boyfriend to flip her sister's, Olivia's home. She meets Leo, an elderly neighbor, and his retriever dog, Coco. Leo didn't return home one night. What happened to him?
Jazzi is walking Coco who finds 2 bodies in a  nearby slough. Jazzi called her homicide detective friend, Gaff. Jazzi life becomes difficult as Ansel is forced to go home for family problems and Jerod has the flu. Jazzi needs answers before she loses her life. I highly recommend this book.
Recipes are included.

#MR FINCHLEY DISCOVERS ENGLAND By Victor Canning

PEACE


The cover attracted my attention and I decided to read it even though it is not a mystery. I found an easy, humorous, and fast moving story. Edgar Finchley is a clerk who at 45 years old has never had a vacation. He is told to take a 3 week holiday and has plans to spend it at a resort near the sea. While waiting for the train, Mr. Finchley falls asleep in a Bentley. He is wakened when the car was evading the police's at high speeds
. He ends up spending the night at the headquarters of the gang. His friend's promises are not honored and he needs help to leave the gang. After success, he decides to explore England and buy a dilapidated bicycle and takes off on his own to visit new places. He will experience meeting the gypsies, almost choke to death, liars, religion, smuggling, and is mistaken for an escaped mental patient. He will learn to sleep in barns and strange places and to eat strange food. There is even a touch of romance. 

The is the first book in a group of three. It was originally published in the 1930s and had immediate success. I want to read the other 2 books.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
