Product Description:

As the New York Times bestselling series continues, China Bayles comes to the aid of a nurse who ends up in the hospital...
 
China is renting her guest cottage to Kelly Kaufman, who needs a temporary place to live as she contends with an acrimonious divorce, including a nasty dispute over ownership of the Comanche Creek Brewing Company. At the same time, as a nurse employed by a local hospice, Kelly has discovered instances of suspicious practices and believes that a patient has been murdered.
 
On her way to China’s house, Kelly is forced off the road and critically injured, putting her in a medically induced coma. Who wants Kelly out of the picture? Her soon-to-be ex? His new lover—who happens to be the sister of China’s friend Ruby? Or someone connected with the corruption at the hospice? China owes it to her friend to uncover the truth—but she may be putting her own life at risk...



April in Pecan Springs, Texas is proving to be busy for China Bayles. Her Thyme and Seasons herb store is thriving, and she rents her cottage to Kelly Kaufman, a young woman soon to be divorced who needs to regroup. China is also somewhat apprehensive because McQuaid, her PI husband is on a case and unreachable, possibly involved in something extremely dangerous.

China stays occupied by spending time with her best friend Ruby, owner of the adjacent New Age shop. Ruby distracts China's worries when she reveals her sister Ramona is discussing partnering up in the Comanche Creek Brewing Company. She is allegedly madly in love with Rich Kaufman, who owns the business with his soon-to-be ex-wife, Kelly—the same Kelly China is renting to.

A local attorney calls China to ask about Kelly, who had an appointment and is a no show. China searches her rental unit, finding Kelly's purse and cell phone and becoming unnerved when a neighbor reports seeing Kelly seemingly abducted into a van on the premises.

Soon after, Kelly calls China with a desperate need to meet with her. She insists it be in person, saying she has information about suspicious activities at the hospice where she used to work, even mentioning murder. China's curiosity is piqued, and she suggests Kelly come by that evening.

Instead, Ramona shows up excited about her new love and venture. China manages to rush her out before Kelly's arrival, but she never appears. China shortly learns Kelly was forced off the road and is in the hospital in critical condition.

Meanwhile, China receives information Kelly left her friend about her allegations. Is Kelly's accident connected with her claims? It seems other have motives to stop Kelly from blowing the whistle, making China determined to get answers.

Blood Orange is suspenseful and engrossing.

Also included are delightful anecdotes relating to herbs as well as recipes found at the conclusion.
