Publisher's Summary

In the exciting new mystery from the New York Times best-selling author, China Bayles fears for her husband's life as an escaped convict targets him.

A killer McQuaid put away years ago has busted out of Huntsville Prison and appears to be headed for Pecan Springs. China wants to stay by her husband's side and keep him from harm, but McQuaid insists that she get out of town and go to the Last Chance Olive Ranch, where she's agreed to teach a workshop on herbs.

The owner, Maddie Haskell, has her own troubles. She inherited the ranch and olive oil business from the late matriarch, Eliza Butler, but Eliza's nephew is contesting the will. While China throws herself into helping Maddie, McQuaid's plan to stop the convict backfires. And now McQuaid's life is not the only one at stake - and this time may really be his last chance.

    "Thin China"

    Transparent and obvious. Definitely not the best in the beloved China Bayles series. Very disappointed.

    "China Bayles - Never Disappoints"

    This is a great little cozy mystery but it's even better if you have been following the series from the beginning. It is good as a stand alone story but most enjoyable if you have a relationship with the characters. As always, Ms. Albert's writing style just draws you in. You want to know these people and wish they were your neighbors and the mysteries are always intriguing.

    Julia Gibson has narrated the series from the beginning and does an exceptional job. Her ability to give such unique personalities that are distinguishable is wonderful. China and all the gang's voices are the same consistently from book to book. Note: although I love Miss Gibson and her performances (she always deserves more than five stars), this book has a second narrator who does the voice of China's husband, McQuade. This narrator is not listed anywhere in the summary or given credit as a narrator. Unknown who he is. Although the gentleman has a pleasant enough voice, it is completely out of character and sounds far too elderly for a man of McQuade's age. The chapters that "McQuade" reads, require the gentleman to do female voices as well and although I don't wish to disrespect him, it is not good. Don't let this minor detail deter you though, this book is worth more than a credit and just as enjoyable as the rest of the series.
