My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This it the 3rd installment in the China Bayles series. China is a former criminal defense attorney who has given up her practice for a slower-paced life as the owner of an herb shop. This story involves the local college where faculty intrigue may have led to murder.
The mystery was well constructed but there wasn't much connection to the herb shop or herb lore mixed in. Though we did learn a bit about catnip. I am counting this as one of the "cozies of my choice" for the Cruisin' Through the Cozies Challenge.
