Spice Shop Mystery Series

Change of life? Bring it on. Recently divorced from her ambulance-chasing, skirt-chasing husband, Piper Prescott, a transplanted Yankee in a small Georgia town, pursues her dream of owning a spice shop. Along with becoming the proprietor of Spice It Up!, Piper discovers a talent for crime-solving. It seems no town, regardless of how charming, is immune to murder and mayhem. Add in an outspoken BFF, a cast of quirky characters, a hunky chief of police, and Piper’s unstoppable curiosity, and you get this fun and satisfying cozy mystery series.

Gail Oust

The author of the Bunco Babes mystery series, GAIL OUST is often accused of flunking retirement. Hearing the words "maybe it's a dead body" while golfing fired her imagination for writing a cozy. Ever since then, she has spent more time on a computer than at a golf course. She lives with her husband in McCormick, South Carolina.
