Spices are flying off the shelves of Spice It Up!, and Piper Prescott couldn’t be happier.  It’s that time of year again—time for the annual Brandywine Creek Barbecue Festival.  Soon contestants and BBQ aficionados from all over the Southeast will converge on the town.  Many of Brandywine Creek’s citizens plan to participate in the week-long festivities and are busily concocting savory rubs and sassy sauces.  Among the locals vying for the grand prize are Becca Dapkins and Maybelle Humphries.  The women have been arch enemies ever since Buzz Oliver dumped Maybelle after a thirteen-year courtship and started seeing Becca. When Becca’s body is found near one of the festival booths, bludgeoned by a brisket, Maybelle becomes one of Chief Wyatt McBride’s top suspects.  Determined to help clear her friend’s name, Piper begins her own investigation, much to McBride’s consternation.  As the festival draws closer, will Piper and Reba Mae be able to find the real killer and clear Maybelle’s name? Will Piper make it to the annual shag contest with Doug Winters, the mild-mannered vet she’s been seeing? And, who will win the BBQ cook-off?

A mouth-watering entry in Gail Oust's "must-read" (Publishers Weekly) spice shop series featuring an unstoppably fabulous crime-solving heroine, a colorful cast of small town characters, and more than a pinch of Georgia charm, Kill ‘Em with Cayenne is sure to delight cozy fans of all stripes.
