After a recent divorce, Piper Prescott decides to follow a dream and open a spice store in the small southern town of Brandywine Creek, Georgia. The evening before the opening of Spice It Up!, Piper discovers chef Mario Barrone stabbed in his restaurant and herself named as the prime suspect in his murder. With the new police chief, Wyatt McBride, suspicious of her and her new store in danger of closing because of the lack of business, Piper and her best friend, Reba Mae, decide to try and uncover Mario's killer themselves. Will stakeouts that are more like picnics and using a chocolate pie to discover someone's shoe size lead them to a murderer? Rosemary and Crime is a new cozy mystery series that will appeal to readers who enjoy Rett MacPherson, Kathy Hogan Trocheck, and Anne George.
