There's Pepper she runs Seattle's Spice Shop. You can taste the scrumptious and warming tea as the author beautiflly describes the different taste sensations and spices they each contain.
The Market that houses The Seattle Spice shop is always hustling and bustling and it is not uncommon for panhandlers. One such panhandler named "Doc" happens to die right at the front door of the Spice Shop.
The next character that tugged on my heart strings was, Pepper's employee, Tory. It seems that the panhandler "Doc" and her have a connection that runs long and deep and she soon becomes a suspect in his death but to Peppers shock and horror he died by poisoning because Doc was clutching a cup of tea from The Spice Shop with their logo on it.
Pepper does not want to see anything happen to Tory and has trouble believing that Tory murdered him so she tries to discover who could have possibly had a motive to want him dead but sniffing him out as not as easy as the savory aromas of her spices.
Some spice, a dash of pepper and a sprig of thyme that it took the read the first book in this Spice Shop series was certainly filled with gusto.This book definitely brought variety and spice to my life as it will yours.
