enjoyable read but not my favorite of thisread but not my favorite of this It s hard to imagine that this is book 17 in the China Bayles series On the one hand we ve become uite familiar with China Mcuade and the assorted cast of characters who people her herb shop and the small Texas hilltown of Pecan Springs On the other hand Wormwood is proof positive that you can teach a familiar character and series new tricks Specifically this story represents a slight departure from the other entries in the series as China spends some time in a former Shaker community cum would be tourist attraction and alternating chapters open with a snippet from a community member s 19th century ournal or other primary source These then alternate with the 21st century story and eventually mystery in which China becomes enmeshed while on her sidetrip to help a friend in Kentucky It wasn t a precise back and forth akin to People of the Book but it was successful in What a Lass Wants juxtaposing past and present as you worked your way into the story The mystery itself was somewhat tepid by which I mean pretty darn predictable That said it really was the veneer of Shaker social history that made it so entertaining Also there s a nifty little detail at the end of the story no she s not pregnant there is no sharkumping here that promises lots of new twists and turns ahead I liked the story and found it a clever deviation that Susan Wittig Albert inject her own personal interest in wanting to explore Shaker culture history into the storyline My thinking is whatever keeps it fresh for Susan Wittig Albert cannot help but be good for both China Bayles and her readers I was warned by someone not to expect great things from Wormwood and I ll admit that for a second there at the beginning I was worried they would be right But then the story managed to find the right balance or maybe I got used to the uirks of this
