My first encounter with the author's writings was in her newer series of the Darling Dahlias. I liked it so well that I looked for more books by Susan Wittig Albert. That's when I came across the China Bayles Mysteries. Always wanting to start with the first book in the series, I ordered Thyme of Death, and I've been hooked ever since! I really like the main characters in the ficticious town of Pecan Springs, Texas, and I can relate to China Bayles' logical way of thinking and her curious nature.
I've also enjoyed learning about different herbs and am fascinated with how the author works the herb into the story and book title!
When I find an author I enjoy, I will read and reread each book! I literally have my own home library (one whole wall in my dining room has bookshelves and an attached rolling ladder) and I keep the copies of my favorite authors. Susan Wittig Albert is one of them! Love the way she writes.
