Soon, strange happenings start to occur in Thyme and Seasons. When a customer sees a mysterious woman picking flowers nearby and then suddenly disappearing, China must finally admit what Ruby has always known—their building is haunted. But by whom?
As China investigates, the tragic story of a woman in one of the old photographs unfolds. China delves into the century-old mystery and realizes that solving it could have unimaginable repercussions in the here and now.

From the library collection -i f you enjoy putting together puzzle pieces from the past, this book delivers that. Although likely improbable that so many things would line up, the book was entertaining in that it reflected on China’s shop a century before. An old box of lace and a few pictures are discovered in a storage room that lead China to a present day connection. There is a lot of switching back and forth between time frames — which I like — thinking how events of the past sometimes determine the present. Lisa
