China Bayles is haunted (literally) by a century-old mystery
While helping Ruby Wilcox clean up the loft, herbalist China Bayles finds antique handcrafted lace and old photographs. Then, she smells the scent of lavender and hears a woman humming a Scottish ballad.
Soon, strange happenings occur in Thyme and Seasons: misplaced items, a ringing bell, and lavender sprigs appearing in odd places. When a customer sees a mysterious woman pick flowers then suddenly disappear, China must admit their building is haunted.
As China investigates, the tragic story of young widow Annie Laurie unfolds. Annie survived through her lace-making business, yet her suspicious death overshadowed her new life. For China, solving Annie’s century-old mystery may have unimaginable repercussions here and now.
