As the Christmas decorating season approaches, Thyme & Seasons proprietor China Bayles feels overwhelmed. While she tries to balance her new roles of wife and step-mom with the demands of her thriving herbal shop, her business partner and best friend, Ruby, mysteriously disappears. Soon China's cantankerous mistletoe supplier Carl turns up dead. With Ruby missing and friends suspected of murder, China must investigate before tragedy strikes again.

Drab reading

This book never clicked with me, mostly because the reading left me cold. It's not just a case of the accent or voice, but the delivery seems flat and the story wasn't compelling enough to rescue it.

Story okay but wrong reader

I have read other books by this author and enjoyed them more than when listening to this one. The story takes place in Texas and the readers accent was just wrong for this book. All in all the book dragged for me - not sure if it was just the reader or the story, or a combination of both.
