In this exciting new mystery from New York Times bestselling author Susan Wittig Albert, China Bayles fears for her husband’s life as an escaped convict targets him…
 
Max Mantel, the killer McQuaid put away years ago, has busted out of the Huntsville prison and appears to be headed for Pecan Springs. McQuaid knows there’s only one way to stop the vengeful convict—set a trap with himself as bait.

China wants to stay by her husband’s side and keep him from harm. But McQuaid  insists that she get out of town and go to the Last Chance Olive Ranch, where she’s agreed to teach a workshop on herbs.

When China and her best friend arrive at the ranch, she learns the owner, Maddie Haskell, has her own troubles. She inherited the ranch and olive oil business from the late matriarch, Eliza Butler, but Eliza’s nephew is contesting the will.

While China throws herself into helping Maddie, McQuaid’s plan backfires when Mantel executes a counter move he never saw coming. Now McQuaid’s life is not the only one at stake—and this time may really be his last chance…

    I enjoyed meeting Susan Wittig Albert at a conference years ago and have loved the early books in this series. They are wonderful cozy mysteries–and especially interesting to me since I have been an herb grower for years. I was drawn to this blog when I saw Albert’s name and thought it was time to return to the China Bayles series.But gee, this one sounds much darker than the ones I previously enjoyed. Has the series grown darker? I guess the only way to find out would be to read the book.
