Publisher's Summary

In the newest China Bayles Mystery in the New York Times best-selling series, China comes to the aid of a nurse who ends up in the hospital....

It's mid-April in Pecan Springs, and China is renting her guest cottage to Kelly Kaufman, who needs a temporary place to live as she contends with a very acrimonious divorce from her husband, Rich. One nasty point of dispute is her part ownership of the Comanche Creek Brewing Company, which she is refusing to sell. At the same time, as a nurse employed by a local hospice, Kelly has discovered instances of suspicious practices. Even more disturbing, she suspects that a patient was murdered.

Kelly's knowledge could be dangerous, and she wants to get guidance from China on what to do. But on her way to China's house, Kelly is forced off the road and critically injured, putting her in a medically induced coma. Now it's up to China to determine who wanted her out of the picture. Was it her soon-to-be ex? His new lover, who happens to be the sister of China's friend Ruby? Or someone connected with the corruption at the hospice? China owes it to her friend to uncover the truth - but she may be putting her own life at risk....

Annonying Voice !!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend READING this book !! The woman who narrates this story does the worst voice 's of Ms Albert's characters I have ever heard ! I could barely stand to listen !

If you’ve listened to books by Susan Wittig Albert before, how does this one compare?

I usually read Ms. Albert's books.

How could the performance have been better?

It would have been better, if someone else had narrated the story !

Could you see Blood Orange being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

I found the voices so disturbing, I don't even want to think about the idea.

Any additional comments?

Who is Julia Gibson ?? How many books does she narrate ? I never want to listen to another story she ruins !

Dyed-in-the wool Wittig Albert fan....

Love the botanical/historical/mysteries Wittig Albert sets in a Texas spot I love to visit. Good characters, fun narration, typical Texan concerns. I loved this title, as I've loved everything this author has written.

Another great one!

Loved this China mystery as much as all the others.
The narrator kept my attention throughout her delivery. I prefer reading these mysteries but have listened to last three and have not been disappointed.
