29 Jun BOOK REVIEW – QUEEN ANNE’S LACE BY SUSAN WITTIG ALBERT
Queen Anne’s Lace by Susan Wittig Albert
Queen Anne’s Lace is part of the China Bayles series and takes part in China’s home town of Pecan Springs.
China, a retired lawyer who now owns a herb shop, is once again involved in a mystery surrounding a box of antique handcrafted lace and photos she finds in the loft of her shop. China, the most practical of people, hears a woman humming a Scottish ballad and later actually sees the woman under her bed. She is immediately hooked on the mystery of the photos and lace and who might have owned them.
The story drifts between past and present as we find out what happened to the owner of the lace interspersed with regular Pecan Springs happenings and characters. The glimpses of China’s everyday life are fun, and the facts about herbs and their uses very interesting.
If you like cozy mysteries and haven’t read this series, these books can be borrowed from Gladstone Regional Libraries.
