Publisher's Summary

A brand new finger-lickin' good mystery featuring small-town Georgia spice shop owner Piper Prescott, a smart and spunky amateur sleuth.
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 13-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?

NOT the 1st Book in Series!

First I want to clarify that this is not the first book in the series. It's book 2. I hope audible fixes this because I missed a lot of info thinking it was book 1. So, that's just a warning.

Secondly, the main character has a rather serious boyfriend but still intensely pursues the cop (McBride), and that plot rubbed me the wrong way. She made McBride breakfast, took him dinner & put herself in desperate situations, all the while she hardly had time for her actual boyfriend. Considering she's a 40 year old woman it sets a bad tone that is the main theme throughout. So, that really hurt the story. It's truly annoying enough to not want to ever listen to it again, so I don't recommend this book.

There are no bones in brisket, y'all.

Other than a few research goofs (or rather, non-researched) that I found distracting, this was a nice easy listen. Some of the female friends were hard to keep track of (with small town Georgia double-names)
The narrator did a fine job and I didn't guess the ending.
