Overview

Rosemary Remembered (China Bayles Series #4) by Susan Wittig Albert

Something about the murder of an accountant just doesn't add up in this China Bayles mystery from New York Times bestselling author Susan Wittig Albert.

China's herb shop in Pecan Springs wasn't a big business, but it kept her busy. So she brought her taxes to Rosemary Robbins, an accountant who reminded China a bit of her former self—preoccupied, distracted, maybe a bit overstressed. Still, Rosemary always seemed pleasant, and China wished she could get to know her better. Now, though, the chance is gone.

Driving out to Rosemary's house on an errand, China discovers her accountant has been murdered. With one abusive ex-husband and plenty of former clients in the picture, there's no shortage of suspects. And with a vengeful ex-convict on the loose, there's plenty for China to worry about. And as the evidence unfolds, she's more determined than ever to make the killer pay...

Here's another of China Bayles I couldn't put down. I love her sarcasm, her self-confidence, and that "other China" whispering practicalities in her ear.

This whole series is a good one. It might be best to start with the first one and continue.

This is the fourth book in the China Bayles series. I strongly recommend that you begin at the beginning and read them in order. It's not necessary in order to enjoy this book, but it helps. Then you will see how much gentler China is becoming. She is certainly not as 'hard-bitten' a heroine like VI Warshawski or Kinsey Mallone, but I like her because she is the way she is. This is a good series and, as always, there is lots of good plant information in this book. Unfortunately, I figured out 'who-donuit' about 1/2 way through the book, but it didn't spoil the story. I hope that in subsequent books in the series, which I will be reading, Ms. Albert does not leave such glaring clues. I like being held in suspense until the end. In this book China loses another acquaintance to murder. This time it is her accountant. She finds as she tries to solve this mystery that there are no shortage of suspects.

This book centers on China and Brian and how their relationship develops. Yes, yes.... this is a mystery! China Bayles' mysteries all have a great mystery to solve and unique, quirky, clever characters. However, these mysteries also develop as a series. And this one focuses upon Brian, China's boyfriend's son, and the relationship they are forging as a family.
