Although Spanish Dagger by Susan Wittig Albert has been out for a while - I am in the process of catching up with China Bayles and all her stories - I thought I would place a review of this particular book on this site. Just this week I also read Bleeding Hearts and will read two more in this series in the next few weeks.
If you haven't read any of the China Bayles mysteries, I encourage you to do so. You can start at the beginning if you want to catch up on the backstory of the characters or you can jump in at any time. All the books in this wonderful series stand alone as a complete novel.
Here's the latest article from the Mystery Books site at BellaOnline.com.

China Bayles has her hands full with a papermaking workshop, newly found brother who wants to reopen the investigation into their fathers' death, and a body discovered amid yucca plants near the railroad track.

"It is possible to solve a mystery and still not know all the answers...It's possible to know how it was done, and even who did it, and why. But knowing an answer to any question doesn't mean that you know THE answer." ~China Bayles, Spanish Dagger
I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message.
