Peppered with the perfect amount of humor, romance, and suspense--plus recipes!-- spice shop owner Piper Prescott's taste for cracking down on small-town crime in this savory new series is always a rollicking good time.

Beneath her twinsets and pearls, Melly, Piper Prescott's former mother-in-law, is a techno geek at heart who has just received an offer from a major software company that she can't refuse. News in Brandywine Creek, Georgia, spreads faster than Piper's own cinnamon honey butter, and soon Melly is the toast of the town. Especially when one of her new corporate investors, Chip Balboa, comes to town for Oktoberfest. Soon cloves and cardamom are flying off Piper's shelves...

But all that changes when Chip's corpse turns up at the foot of Melly's basement. Questions quickly heat up when hunky police chief Wyatt McBride arrives on the scene. Why did it take Melly so long to report the incident--is it because she and Chip exchanged red-hot words before he turned up dead? Piper knows that Melly would never hurt a fly on a sticky bun, and she enlists the help of her BFF Reba Mae to clear her name. But can they sniff out the real killer before Melly gets burned...for good?
