"Julia Gibson performs the latest entry in Albert's collection of herbal cozies in an engaging manner. China Bayles, a former big-city attorney, now runs Thyme and Seasons Herbs, a small shop in the Texas Hill Country. When Phoebe Morgan, queen of the local Picklefest, disappears right before the event, China and her PI husband sort through a myriad of suspects and false scents to solve the mystery. Gibson remains cool, calm, and collected while presenting unique vocal characterizations for a large cast of characters of varying ages and backgrounds. Gibson's mastery of dialogue, especially bantering, is outstanding, and her expressive vocal range resounds with warmth and humor. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
