An Alice Nestleton Mystery by Lydia Adamson

I found this book at one of my favorite thrift stores and picked it up because of the herb theme in it. Even though it was an easy read, it didn't really seem to be fleshed out enough for me. The secrets that came out weren't developed and left me wondering what was behind it all. The reactions of the characters all seemed to be the same but why? Okay, so part of the story was about dealing with grief of the death of a good friend, but it just didn't seem to flow. The herb (catnip) wasn't talked about much except for a short conversation Alice had with a store owner. As another reviewer said this might just be one of those 'off' books. I'll look for more of her books to see if her other books have a different feel.
