review 1: This was a nice, little read, set in the 30s in the US south. It's the first book in the series I've read, and I will search out the others. You could tell the author has done her research on the period, but the inclusion of period food brands, radio programs, etc. red almost as ...

review 1: Although this is the 20th book in the series it was the first for me. I really enjoyed it. A nice cozy afternoon read with a mystery thrown it. Very everyday and identifiable characters and setting in a small town. I loved the ladies quilting circle. I'm sure I know every on...

review 1: Set in the 1930's this group of ladies brings you in to their world and their individual lives. You feel as though you are a part or silent character in the story, just sitting on the sidelines watching and listening. The necessary background chapters at the beginning of the book...

review 1: A fictionalized account of the adult life of Rose Wilder Lane that I found interesting, although I would have enjoyed an actual biography better. It did give me an insight into the life of someone I know little about, plus it led me to search for other materials to find out more...

review 1: I devoured this book. China Bayles has always been one of my favorite cozy mystery series. This addition is different from most of the books in this long series. The main character, China, is involved for part of the story. However, her side kick Ruby is one of the main stars thi...

review 1: Having recently read a disappointing cozy by a different author set during the Depression, I was hesitant at first about reading this. I'm really glad I did, though, because it is an excellent book and I think I have a new favorite series!I haven't been reading SWA's books for ve...

review 1: China is back in problem-solving mode when a friend is mugged in the mall parking lot and succumbs to her injuries. It seems this killing was not random but rather, it is somehow related to a documentary being made by two local college students about a 15 year old cold case invo...

review 1: I really love reading historical cozy mysteries. They paint a very realistic picture of daily life back then, with normal people. Allright, most characters are a bit eccentric, but who knows if that was normal back then. Darling is a little village in Texas, and times are difficu...

review 1: I've spent the past couple of weeks catching up on the books in the China Bayles series that I missed during a chunk of my life when I wasn't doing much reading. With "Holly Blues," I'm now all caught up and feeling rather bittersweet about it. It's good to be completely up to ...
