Cozy mystery. My latest release is CHAI ANOTHER DAY,
4th in the
Spice Shop Mysteries set in Seattleâ€™s famed Pike Place Market, coming June 11, 2018.
The crimes are fiction; the food is real.
Mystery author obsessed with food and the Northwest seeks
readers for armchair travel to foodie heaven, the Pike Place Market in Seattle, with a savvy
Spice Shop owner who doubles as the poster child for the cliche that life begins at forty. When
she overhears an argument in an antique shop, she finds herself drawn into a murder that
could implicate an old enemy, or ensnare a new friend. With her natural people-smarts and
determination, she asks questions the detectives canâ€™t, using her knowledge of the
community to bring a killer to justice.
What I'm looking for in my ideal reader match:
Knows that reading, and friends, are the spice of life
Looks at their TBR pile and thinks they need another
Loves a good movie almost as much as a good book
Thinks eating off vintage plates and dining in mismatched
chairs makes perfect sense
Understands that wine is fruit and chocolate is a vegetable
Wants to travel, on the page, to new places, meeting new
friends and eating new food
Adores prowling public markets and farmersâ€™
Believes that a story can be entertaining while being about
Likes learning about spices, antiques and vintage goods, the
restaurant business, and more
Relishes a laugh and clever wordplay
Enjoys a good mystery from an author who plays fair and
treats her readers with respect
What to expect if we're compatible:
A committed relationship with an author who serves up a
tasty mystery that takes readers to some her favorite places, plies them with good food, and
leaves them hungry for more. As a bonus, if you choose this author, youâ€™ll get access to
award-winning short stories, and news about book launches and giveaways from the author
and her many writer pals, through her newsletter and Facebook Author page.
A Spice Shop Mystery #4
Seattle Spice Shop owner Pepper Reece probes murder while juggling a troubled employee,
her motherâ€™s house hunt, and a fisherman whoâ€™s set his hook for her.
As owner of the Spice Shop in Seattle's famed Pike Place Market, Pepper Reece is always on
the go. Between conjuring up new spice blends and serving iced spice tea to customers
looking to beat the summer heat, she finally takes a break for a massage. But the Zen moment
is shattered when she overhears an argument in her friend Aimee's vintage home decor shop
that ends in murder.
Wracked by guilt over her failure to intervene, Pepper investigates, only to discover a web of
deadly connections that could ensnare a friend - and Pepper herself
