Nightshade, the newest China Bayles novel from author, Susan Wittig Albert, hits the bookstores on April 1, 2008. But, you can get a sneak peek into China's life by visiting here on March 31, 2008. Susan, herself, will visit our blog during her nationwide blog tour promoting her newest book.
Susan Wittig Albert is a nationally-recognized speaker on the history and lore of herbs and the creator of the critically-acclaimed China Bayles herbal mysteries. Her latest book is titled Nightshade. Albert's novels have catapulted her into national bestseller circles and onto "must-read" booklists across the country. Publishers Weekly says that China Bayles is "in a class with lady sleuths V.I. Warshawski and Stephanie Plum," and the Dallas Morning News calls them "engaging, entertaining, interesting, and instructive." Ms. Albert's enormously popular books are known for their snappy dialogue, humor, and regional background, as well as for the information about herbs that is woven into each book.
So, be sure to mark your calendars for March 31, 2008. Visit our blog throughout the day and as often as you like. Be sure to post comments and questions for Susan as she talks about China's gardens and her shop Thyme and Season.
