This is a mystery I couldn't figure out! When Kate Adams' good friend and mentor dies, she doesn't believe the rumor that she killed herself and she doesn't believe it could be an accident either. She knows she was murdered, but has no idea why. She confronts Tom Parker, the new detective in town, about why the case is closed and vows to catch the killer herself. Tom is trying to lay low after leaving the FBI, especially since his coworkers aren't too happy to have him there. He thinks Kate may be right so he starts to investigate, but can he rule her out as a suspect or is he blinded by the feelings he has for her? With so many suspects and so many motives, is this one case that will remain unsolved?
There were so many suspects and characters I had a hard time keeping track of who was who, but I liked that it was hard to figure out. Kate bothered me because she kept making illogical decisions and putting herself in danger. She would be so sure of a suspect without proof and then suddenly change her mind and be so sure of another one. I liked the romance, but wished for more. I also liked the focus on the herbal teas and what each herb was for. This was an intriguing story!
