It's Thanksgiving in Pecan Springs, and China is planning to visit her mother, Leatha, and her mother's husband, Sam, who are enthusiastically embarking on a new enterprise--turning their former game ranch into a vacation retreat for birders. But Leatha calls with bad news: Sam has had a heart attack. She does have a helper, Sue Ellen Krause. But China discovers that Sue Ellen, who is in the process of leaving her marriage to the assistant foreman at a large trophy game ranch, is in some serious trouble. Before Sue Ellen can tell China the full story, her car veers off a deserted road and she is killed. China begins to wonder if Sue Ellen's death may not have been an accident in this complex case of theft and murder in a South Texas ranching community.

I enjoyed the plot and setting of this story. I didn't really like how the narration alternated between first person and third person though. The characters were likeable and realistic. I thought that the title was clever, and I appreciated the recipes and botanical information.

Thoroughly enjoyed this story. The first 75 pages went slow and then it took off. plan to look for other books by Susan Wittig Albert

Just finished re-reading the whole China Bayles series. A very enjoyable mystery series with the addition of herbal knowledge and recipes. Highly recommend.
