PimPage: An Occasional Feature in Which I Call Interesting Books to Your Attention
You know me. I can't resist mysteries set in small-town Texas, and Susan Wittig Albert's China Bayles series is one of the best. This time China's dealing with a killer who uses arson to conceal the crime. A young reporter disappears while investigating the story, and China has to find her as well as the killer. As usual, there are some family obligations, too, plus the requisite herbal lore (psychoactive plants). And lots of recipes.
