Murder heats up Seattle’s Pike Place Market in the next Spice Shop mystery from the national bestselling author of Assault and Pepper.

Springtime in Seattle’s Pike Place Market means tasty foods and wide-eyed tourists, and Pepper’s Spice Shop is ready for the crowds. With flavorful combinations and a fresh approach, she’s sure to win over the public. Even better, she’s working with several local restaurants as their chief herb and spice supplier. Business is cooking, until one of Pepper’s potential clients, a young chef named Tamara Langston, is found dead, her life extinguished by the dangerously hot ghost chili—a spice Pepper carries in her shop. 

Now stuck in the middle of a heated police investigation, Pepper must use all her senses to find out who wanted to keep Tamara’s new café from opening—before someone else gets burned…

    A Spicy Murder

    The second visit to the Spice Shop will have you flipping pages like crazy as you try to help unwind the murder mystery! Is it the hot headed chef? The savvy partner? The mean cook next door to the restaurant? How did they manage to kill poor Tamera with ghost peppers? While unraveling the mystery of the murder, the side mystery of who is trying to take out Pepper is an interesting side plot. Is the killer trying to off her before she can unravel the mystery or has she angered someone else in some way! Great character development, vibrant setting and great, fast paced plotting will keep you turning the pages! A wonderful and entertaining way to spend an afternoon!
