“What’s happened in Pecan Spring over the last few weeks has given us all a great deal to think about—especially me, since the tragedies struck so close to home.”


I have read this book several times. I feel it is must read for everyone concern about teenagers problems.

China is asked by a teacher to look into a story she heard about their high school football coach having sex with one his students. The coach is very popular as the team is winning. China must be very careful. She starts investigating and finds it might be true. Ruby is having a quilt show and a quilt disappears. 

Brian has problems and tries to handle them. China’s Mother asks her to pick up her Father’s papers from lawyer. The subplots are handled nicely and come together.


“Excuse me.” I put down my teacup. “I don’t think I heard that right, Ruby. I thought you said that Ramona has bought a brewery.”


This series has been a must read as soon I have a copy. I have followed China, Sheila, and Ruby from the first adventure. This book could be read as a stand alone as the background  is explained. There is slight paranormal activity in the book. Interested in flavor liquors and beer there is beneficial information on the subject. China becomes involved in a whistleblowing case on medicare fraud. Ruby has a vision that China must be careful about entering a door. China has rented out her cabin to Kelly Kaufman who disappears. Kelly calls China and asked for help with a problem and mention a murder. Kelly is killed on the way to give China the information she has. While researching the meager facts China inadvertently puts herself and others in danger. How is the DOOR involved?

  1. Happy Friday! 😎

    My first lines come from a book I will be reading soon, Through the Autumn Air by Kelly Irvin…….

    At what point did a person realize that the special moments in life streak by in a flash, distilled into memories before they could be truly lived? Mary Katherine Ropp stood motionless in the middle of her kitchen, a platter holding a two-layer German chocolate cake covered in whipped cream cheese frosting nestled in her hands.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!😊📚💖
