Darkness Light rD I m curious as to whether there will be anyeal fallout from China s dream mostly I want to know if we ll get to find out Ruby s eactionand I can t say I m terribly surprised about the Caitlin situation Although I m a couple of years behind I ve ead all the China Bayles Mysteries up to this one The eason I mention that is so that I can tell you this one is different As far as I can emember I don t believe the author has ever included parts of the book from a viewpoint different than China Bayles In this book we alternate between current time and what was happening in 1912 in the same area of northern Kentucky where China was visitingChina s friend Martha Edmond invited Her To Go To Kentucky Where She to go to Kentucky where she offering a couple of one day workshops on Shaker herbs at Mount Zion Shaker Village Of course egular eaders would know that the trip was a use to get China off on her own so she could solve the eventual murder without the help of her husband Mcuaid the former Houston policeman who is now a part time criminal justice professor and private detective China a etired attorney now owns an herb shop called Thyme and Seasons in Pecan Springs Texas China did call Mcuaid a few times and Not Handsome Enough reuested his help once even though she didn t always do what he saidI enjoyed learning about the Shakers and I liked the way author Albert let us look at the past through the eyes of the people who lived at that time She could have just as easily had the current day charactersead us the journals as was done near the end of the book but it wouldn t have been as ealistic and interesting In this 17th book in the China Bayles series China has been convinced by friends and family to take a vacation She is visiting a friend and helping out with a few workshops at a Kentucky Shaker village What China does not suspect is that her friend has asked her there to also do some investigating into some potentially shady practices at the village The director wants to add to the village by putting in a fancy spa but others feel that this may put the enterprise on shaky ground Told in parallel with the historical events of the village that are being uncovered by the esearch staff we see some interesting comparisons between the difficulties that the Shaker community had and the modern day challenges When a suspicious death occurs China finds the urge to investigate irresistible As usual the author elevates the cozy mystery to something deeper and complex sharing with the Busy Park reader many of the details of the Shaker way of life The end leaves us with a teaser on a dramatic change in China s own life 17 in the China Bayles series China is the proprietor of an herb shop in Pecan Springs TX but manages to get involved in murder on aegular basisChina Bayles travels to a historic Shaker village in Mt murder on a Beer Law: What Brewers Need to Know regular basisChina Bayles travels to a historic Shaker village in Mt KY with a friend of her mother s The community is having problems with arson theft and murder Flashbacks to the early 1800 s show theeal Shaker community having the same problems Book is actually two similar short pieces with periods a century apart Shaker lore adds interes.
