First review is a cozy...of course.
Title: Assault and Pepper by Leslie Budewitz (A Spice Shop Mystery)
Checked out from public library.
Great line from the book: Too bad "He had it coming" is no defense to premeditated murder.
Tidbit of info: The beginning of every chapter is a tidbit of info on spices. Very informative and fun!!
Why I chose this book: It is set in Seattle's Pike's Place Market area. I used to live on Whidbey Island and went down there many times. It was such an interesting place to shop.
About the book: Pepper Reece has bought out an existing spice shop in Seattle 1 year ago, after leaving a cheating husband and losing a job with a failing corporation. While she is in the process of putting her personal touch on the Seattle Spice Shop, a seemingly homeless man dies on her shop stoop. One of her employees is accused of the murder and Pepper vows to find the real killer while Detectives Spenser and Tracy are making her life miserable. While Pepper finds out who the victim is, all her questioning makes the killer nervous.
My rating: Should read
Side note: Recipes in the back of the book!!!
