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.

  1. I recommend “This Old Homicide” by Katie Carlisle, such a great read. I would love a chance to win “Sweet Pepper Hero”, Thanks for this amazing chance & these great books. Linda May

  2. I am always interested in books by Joyce and Jim Lavene. I have recently been introduced to Tracy Weber and her Downward Dog Mystery series. The series has three installments with the very recent launch of book 3 “Karma’s a Killer.” The author owns a yoga studio, and so does her main character. I’ve explored yoga, and although my body is not “yoga worthy,” I have been intrigued.
