Book Review/Giveaway: Killing Thyme by Leslie Budewitz

 Title: Killing Thyme
 Author: Leslie Budewitz
 Series: Book 3 A Spice Shop Mystery
 Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime
 Format: Paperback
 Source: Received for Review from Publisher
 Star Rating: 5 out of 5
 Reviewed by: Tina

Pepper Reece has spice, a feisty amateur sleuth that will do anything to protect her family and friends from a killer. She's not just killing thyme,  she stop's at nothing, something that detectives Spencer and Tracy somehow cannot do even their names are a joke.

With all jokes aside, the first thing I love about The Spice Shop Mysteries is The spice shop, imagining the tempting aromas of the sweet and savory spices is enough having me wanting to venture the fictional shop and Pike Place Market, in the hustle and bustle. The second thing I love is Pepper mostly for what I explained about above.

Bonnie Clay is a Potter of sculptures and is a vendor in the market. Bonnie Clay came to town with a secret in her past and Lena, Pepper's mother is coming to visit but, they meet up and something is off when Lena thought Bonnie Aka Peggy Manning was dead and there's tension with the pair.

Pepper found Bonnie/Peggy dead in her artist's studio amid fragments of a think clay platter. Trauma to the head found to be her cause of death. With a not-so-nice foodie columnist visiting the spice shop for a review and the theft of Pepper's BFF's family heirloom necklace, it could possibly be a connection, when Pepper shakes up some suspects, it leaves her to wonder until the killer has a spicy taste in their mouth when Pepper sniffs him out.

I love Peppers savvy and energy. Her instincts make Killing Thyme a not to put down mystery. With her failing love life, and a killer to catch you think she won't be able to do it until she discovers not only who the killer is but she unlocks a missing link to her families past and ends up bringing them together. I can't wait to read and review the next book in the series.
