Spice Shop Mysteries Synopsis: Rosemary and Crime is the first book in the Spice Shop Mystery series by Gail Oust. Piper Prescott, a transplanted Yankee living in the South, has got her sass back. She might be down, but don’t count her out. Recently divorced and looking for a change, Piper decides to pursue a dream she’s secretly harbored: owning her own business, Spice it Up!, a spice shop in her adopted hometown, Brandywine Creek, Georgia. But Piper’s grand opening goes awry when the local chef who’s agreed to do a cooking demo is found stabbed to death. Not only was Piper the one to find the body, but she handled the murder weapon and doesn’t have a witness to her alibi. This makes the case look like a slam dunk to brand new police Chief Wyatt McBride. Desperate to uncover the truth – and prove her innocence – Piper enlists the help of her outspoken BFF Reba Mae Johnson to help track down the real killer. The pair compile a lengthy list of suspects and work to eliminate them using their own creative brand of sleuthing techniques including stakeouts, breaking and entering, and one very unorthodox chocolate pie. When Piper narrowly avoids being a victim of a hit-and-run, she knows she’s getting closer to the truth, but can she catch the killer and clear her name before she becomes the next victim?
