Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Susan Wittig Albert is especially beloved for creating herbalist and ex-lawyer China Bayles, hailed by Publishers Weekly as “in a class with lady sleuths V.I. Warshawski and Stephanie Plum.” In Widow’s Tears, China has urgent business to discuss with Ruby, a friend gifted with extrasensory perception. Meeting Ruby at a supposedly haunted house, China soon uncovers a mystery that may be linked to a deadly robbery that very night.

History and a Ghost Story Combined

Would you consider the audio edition of Widow's Tears to be better than the print version?

I think I enjoyed listening to the book more than I would have if I read it. The voices add intrigue and suspense.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes. I loved the ghost story. I also enjoyed the story of the Galveston Hurricane although it was tragic. The story line in Pecan Springs was interesting too.

Which character – as performed by Julia Gibson and Morgan Hallett – was your favorite?

I do like China but in this book, it is Ruby's story. Ruby was my favorite. I l also liked Claire, Ruby's friend and Rachel who is the centerpiece of the historical story. Even Ruby's disagreeable sister Ramona was a good character.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The ghost in your house may be here to stay.

Any additional comments?

I liked all the China Bayles mysteries but this is definitely one of my favorites.

don't start here

I hope you do not start with this book in the series. Definately not my favorite, maybe because I already know the stories of that hurricane and do not like ghost stories ( really don't) The rest of the series is great.
