Guilty as Cinnamon: A Spice Shop Mystery by Leslie Budewitz
I enjoyed reading the next installment of the Spice Shop Mysteries. I like Pepper's approach to figuring out what has happened and how she interacts with the other characters to find out more about the victim and is able to put together what happened.
Pepper works at her Spice Shop in Seattle and likes see all the good foods that are made with her spices. She is working with Tamara Langston who is opening a restaurant and when Tamara is found dead, Pepper finds herself involved in the investigation. She realizes that if she wants things to go back to normal in the shop, she will have to do some sleuthing on her own.
