Read in April, 2008

Nightshade ties up the plot lines started in Bleeding Heart and Spanish Needle. Do yourself a favor, and read those first. (Although if you've picked up Nightshade not knowing it is part of a series, Ms. Albert drops enough hints of the past plot events that you might not be aware of just how much you are missing.)

The mystery is interesting, with excitement and good supporting characters. I work at home and it was hard to finish my daily quota because I wanted to pick up my recreational reading instead!

The herbal lore, as always, was worth reading on its own. Many chapters start with an historical quote related to the nightshade family. The following chapter subtly elaborated on the botanical reference.

More information is included in an addendum, as well as recipes - at least two of which I intend to try.

Another nice outing for China Bayles.
