This is a "Must Have" book for any Herb lover. The details on each daily herb is very extensive along with recommended reading for those who want even more information. Of course, it does help that China Bayles is one of my absolutely favorite mystery heroines. Susan Wittig Albert is an outstanding author that has a special gift of writing an attention crabbing book while sharing her knowledge of herbs at the same time. This series is one of my favorite and I often treat myself to a China Bayles book (via my Nook) whenever I feel the need for something special!
Can use book on a daily basis - good mix of topics all relating to herbs
