Old rivalries heat up in the fourth Sweet Pepper Fire Brigade mystery from the national bestselling author of In Hot Water.
Fire chief Stella Griffin has been put in charge of judging the annual recipe contest, but Eric—her resident ghost and true culinary genius—has vanished. Before she can track down his latest haunt, she’s called in to investigate a local moonshine distillery that was set ablaze, making her realize there’s more than pies and cakes cooking in Sweet Pepper.
As rumors of a revived whiskey war ignite, Stella turns to the town’s elders to help her find answers. The past might have some clues as to what has sparked the present fires. But when following a lead lands her in buried rubble, Stella realizes she must extinguish this case fast or she might be going down in flames.


I took my time enjoying this novel because I want to spend as much time as I can in the Sweet Pepper area. I have a lot of heroes there, both living and dead. All still quite full of life.

Fire Chief Stella Griffin has her hands full, being chosen to handle the recipes for the major Sweet Pepper festival. Tougher because her main cook and right hand, the ghost of former fire chief Eric Gamlyn, has been missing for months. She has done a fantastic job of training the volunteer fire brigade but no one is prepared for a series of moonshine still explosions. Her team will prove what a great job Stella has done when she ends up incapacitated.

Danger and action, possibly some future romance and dastardly revenge are being plotted.
Get comfortable and visit Sweet Pepper and the fascinating people working with Chief Stella Griffin.
I guarantee you'll want to return again and again.
