December Book News

How did it get to be December? You don’t know, either? Why is it that the older we get, the faster time seems to go? 


Out December 1 from Berkley Prime Crime

Here in Northwest Montana, we’ve been busy–which may be one reason why the year is suddenly rushing to a close! Today is release day for GUILTY AS CINNAMON, the second Seattle Spice Shop Mystery by Leslie Budewitz.

From the cover: 
Pepper Reece knows that fiery flavors are the spice of life. But when a customer dies of a chili overdose, she finds herself in hot pursuit of a murderer…

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 Seattle 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…
