Book 4, Spice Shop Mystery Series - A Spice Shop Mystery

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Piper Prescott, proprietor of Spice It Up!, has persuaded Doug Winters, the mild-mannered vet she’s been dating, to demonstrate Indian cuisine at her shop. But before Doug’s presentation of classic chicken curry is completed, Ned Feeney, local handyman, bursts in with news of a murder.

Sandy Granger, the director of a local production of Steel Magnolias, was found strangled in the third-floor balcony of the Brandywine Creek Opera House. Sandy, it seems, had not endeared herself to cast or crew. Complaints about her ran the gamut from her management style to her lack of people skills. Everyone connected with the production falls under suspicion, including Piper Prescott’s BFF, Reba Mae Johnson, who made it well known how unhappy she is that she was cut from the cast.

When the spotlight for the dastardly deed shines on Reba Mae, Piper rushes to her friend’s defense. Who among Sandy’s detractors was angry enough to wrap a silk scarf around her neck—and pull tight? Will Piper succeed in solving the case before she becomes the killer’s encore performance? And will she ever learn just how to prepare the perfect curry? As delicious as it is charming, this entry in Gail Oust’s mouth-watering Spice Shop Mysteries, Curried Away, is sure to delight both old fans and new.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 31, 2016 – Early in Oust’s charming fourth Spice Shop cozy (after 2015’s Cinnamon Toasted), handyman Ned Feeney stumbles on the dead body of the heartily disliked Sandy Granger in the Brandywine Creek, Ga., opera house. Sandy was directing a local production of Steel Magnolias and had earned the wrath of many of the players, but who wanted the woman dead? Piper Prescott, owner of the Spice It Up! shop, might have stayed out of this one if the evidence hadn’t pointed toward her BFF, Reba Mae Johnson. Police chief Wyatt McBride doesn’t want to hear what Piper thinks, so she’ll have to clear Reba Mae’s name on her own. Rampant gossip, a plethora of ladies who are themselves perfect stand-ins for the cast of Steel Magnolias, and Piper’s ailing relationship with aspiring chef Doug Winters all blend nicely together until a somewhat flimsy motive leads to a killer. Three appealing recipes, one for spicy chicken curry, round out the volume.
