The usual from Susan Wittig Albert -- a pleasantly complicated plot, intertwined sub-plots, eccentric characters and top-notch writing.

This is a good China Bayles mystery. I was a little disillusioned after the previous two in the series, but this is a great one. I really enjoyed the story, and the wedding sideline was a great one. China is her usual rushed self in this story, and she's trying hard to concentrate only on her upcoming nuptials, but gets involved in spite of herself with another murder. This murder is of a citizen of Pecan Springs, who no one will really miss that much (except his wife). He's a sharpy, and he gets cut on his own misdeeds. The story moves along swiftly, and we see China trying to get wedding plans in amongst murders, hurricanes and faled wedding cakes. It's great. Read this for a whomping good ride. (Oh, and the recipes are good too). The books are worth a read for the recipes and for the plant lore that the reader gathers as they read.
