Description:

Murder comes well-seasoned in this charming mystery featuring a smart and spunky new amateur sleuth, small-town Georgia spice shop owner Piper Prescott.

Welcome to Brandywine, Georgia. Piper Prescott has decided to follow her dream and open Spice It Up! A shop that features the best spices from around the world. Her ex-husband predicts the idea will be huge failure but with a little help of her BBF, Reba Mae, and even her ex-mother in-law she is determined to make it a success.

But when she goes to meet with the chef she is featuring at her Grand Opening she finds he is not going to be cooking anything for her or anyone else. She finds him stabbed to death in his kitchen. The new police Chief Wyatt McBride quickly decides Piper makes a perfect prime suspect. Piper and Reba Mae will do anything to change his mind and go to great lengths to prove her innocence even putting their own lives in danger.

My Thoughts:

This was a great book featuring Georgia Spice Shop Owner Piper Prescott who is trying her hand at a spice shop called Spice It Up!  When on her opening day a  chef is found dead, and Piper finds herself in hot water as the main suspect.  She and her friend Reba Mae work to clear Piper's name.

Also Piper is dealing with her daughter who is having her own issues.  With her father having a new girlfriend and not her mother and father together.  Which leads to chaos in this book.

Then there is the new police Chief McBride who is everywhere Piper tries to investigate.  As the book goes on Piper wonders how McBride always knows to show up.  This book was full of so much mystery and intrigue it made you wonder who would figure out the killer's identity Piper or McBride?

Definitely a great book to read the author did a fabulous job with it can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
