Changing my mind a tad
Thyme of Death - Susan Wittig Albert

When I read this book I didn´t like it very much and didn´t really give it a real review.  Now that I think back I think I was really crabby because of being sick.  I decided to give it one more star (so 3 stars up from 2).  I think it rates about the same as some other cozy mysteries I´ve read and I´m hoping the series will get better.  The book that initially caught my eye was the 10th in the series called Bloodroot. The summery looked really interesting.

 

Lawyer-turned-herbalist China Bayles returns to the Deep South, where her family’s legacy of silence is at last broken—and the past finally, unforgettably, speaks the truth… 

A frantic phone call from her mother brings China back to her family’s Mississippi plantation—a place she’d forsaken long ago. But the late-spring air is thick with fear—and from the moment of her arrival, China knows that something has gone desperately wrong at Jordan’s Crossing. An ancient property deed has surfaced—and the man who uncovered it has mysteriously vanished. And as the fates and fortunes of two very different families collide in frightening, unpredictable ways, China must face disturbing new questions about her family’s past—and her own future…

 

I always start with the first book in the series though and read them in order and the first book just wasn´t that great.  Now that I´m feeling better I decided to give the series another shot.  I´ve ordered the 2nd and third and hopefully it will get more interesting.  

 

Here is a more proper review....

 

Jo has cancer and the prognosis isn't good but she is strong and has enlisting her friend Ruby to help her. Ruby owns a new age store in the same building as China Bayles' herb store. China used to be a high powered lawyer but decided she didn't like the way her life was going. She decided to put her money into an herb shop and live a quite life in the small town of Pecan Springs, Texas. They were all ready to celebrate Jo's birthday when she was found dead of an apparent suicide. They were sure she didn't kill herself though and were determined to figure out who killed her. Things get even more interesting when a famous friend from Jo's past shows up and asks if she can stay in China's guest cottage while she's in town. More crazy things continue to happen and China has her hands full trying to figure out what is going on.

Thyme of Death
Thyme of Death - Susan Wittig Albert

I really thought I was going to love this book and series. This book is the first book in the series but it is the last one I´m reading. I just couldn´t get into it. It seemed silly to me but I think I have just gotten tired of cozy mysteries and need to read more serious mysteries. This book just had too many details that wouldn´t have happened in real people land. The main one for me was when the paramedics came to check on the lady that called 911 and didn´t speak to the dispatcher. They went rushing into the place and then decided they needed to try to resuscitate her. They had to go back out to their vehicle to get the equipment. They wouldn´t have gone in their without what they needed to save someone´s life. Then, China is walking around crime scenes and no one stops her. She is telling the paramedics and police about her theories about what happened and I´m picturing them all like goofy saying, ¨well okay!¨ I know what it is really like and none of that would have happened.
