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.

Spare. Me. The. Weird. Pauses.

In addition to her inappropriate pauses, Gibson’s inflection and emphasis add up to a miserable listening experience. Why do so many narrators “read” in such abysmally awful ways? Do they speak like this normally?

Moreover, her character voices are absurd. Ruby sounds like a vapid 80-year-old with a fake southern accent.

Note to narrators: It’s better not to do voices or accents at all than to do them so poorly as to be distracting. Read like you talk, not like a 4th grader trying out for the class play.

The story only gets 3 stars because I couldn’t follow it due to the poor “performance “.

Thin China

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