Author Susan Wittig Albert turns up the suspense in her 18th China Bayles mystery. Just as the holiday season begins, so does the drama, when China's husband’s ex-wife, Sally, appears, begging for help and a place to stay. ’Tis the season of giving, so China opens her home to Sally. But when troubling phone calls start, China knows she’ll need to dig up the truth before Christmas turns deadly.

Crack another case with China Bayles.

China Bayles and Christmas, too!

Would you listen to Holly Blues again? Why?

Holly Blues was a great Christmas listen/read. It had just enough of the holiday to be festive and continued to investigate not only the murder but the relationships of the main characters as well.

What did you like best about this story?

The writing is sharp. As a westerner myself, I appreciate the idioms and ways of thinking about the land and the rights/responsibilities of others that Wittig expresses through China and McQuade.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. But I have to say that while the female narrator was good, the male narrator really nailed it. He sounded so West Texas that I could immediately picture him.
