Genre: Cozy Mystery
Series: Sweet Pepper Fire Brigade #4
Synopsis:Old rivalries heat up in the fourth Sweet Pepper Fire Brigade mystery from the national bestselling author of In Hot Water.
Fire chief Stella Griffin has been put in charge of judging the annual recipe contest, but Eric—her resident ghost and true culinary genius—has vanished. Before she can track down his latest haunt, she’s called in to investigate a local moonshine distillery that was set ablaze, making her realize there’s more than pies and cakes cooking in Sweet Pepper.
As rumors of a revived whiskey war ignite, Stella turns to the town’s elders to help her find answers. The past might have some clues as to what has sparked the present fires. But when following a lead lands her in buried rubble, Stella realizes she must extinguish this case fast or she might be going down in flames.
What did I think about this book:
This is the first book I have read in this series and I was not lost although I will be going back and reading the rest of the series. The characters were fun to get to know and I enjoyed the fire brigade theme. I like the writing style of this couple as I have read other books by them. They do a good job with providing us with plenty of twists in the story so you do not know who is actually setting the first until the end. Another thing I liked is how they include animals as part of the storyline and give them there own special spot in the story. Also the added bonus of the ghost in the book was a plus for me as I love a story that has ghosts involved. Let's not forget the recipes they give us in the back of the book. I can't wait to try them out. I have to say I have found some great recipes in some of the cozies I have read in the past and I am sure these will not disappoint. If you enjoy cozy mysteries then I suggest picking up this book and giving it a try you will not be disappointed.
About the author:J. J. Cook is a pseudonym for a married couple who writes mysteries, mostly set in the South, with a touch of paranormal and romance.
