Publisher's Summary

Murder comes well-seasoned in this charming mystery featuring a smart and spunky new amateur sleuth, small-town Georgia spice shop owner Piper Prescott.

Piper Prescott, a transplanted Yankee living in the South, has got her sass back. She might be down, but don’t count her out. “Change of life?” she asks. Bring it on. Recently divorced, Piper decides to pursue a dream she’s secretly harbored: owning her own business, Spice it Up!, a spice shop in her adopted hometown, Brandywine Creek, Georgia. But Piper’s grand opening goes awry when the local chef who’s agreed to do a cooking demo is found stabbed. Not only did Piper find the body, she handled the murder weapon and doesn’t have a witness to her alibi, making the case look like a slam dunk to brand new police Chief Wyatt McBride.

Desperate to uncover the truth - and prove her innocence - Piper enlists the help of her outspoken BFF Reba Mae Johnson to help track down the real culprit. The pair compiles a lengthy list of suspects and work to eliminate them using their own creative brand of sleuthing techniques including stakeouts, breaking and entering, and one very unorthodox chocolate pie. When Piper narrowly avoids being a victim of a hit-and-run, she knows she’s getting closer to the truth, but can she catch the killer and clear her name before she becomes the next victim?

A captivating start to a new series featuring an unstoppably fabulous new crime-solving heroine, a colorful cast of small town characters, and more than a pinch of Georgia charm, Rosemary and Crime by Gail Oust is sure to delight fans of Diane Mott Davidson and Donna Andrews.

    "Hopefully more to come from this author!"
    Where does Rosemary and Crime rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is up there with about five other authors I frequently read and / or listen to.


    What other book might you compare Rosemary and Crime to and why?

    Maggie Barberries and the Stiff series of books whose author slips my mind at the moment

    "boring and formulaic"

    This book was full of cliches and followed the formula for all cozy mysteries. 1. Sleazy ex husband. 2. Best friend who blindly follows lead character into sleuthing. 3. Small town picturesque setting rich with gossip. 4. Sheriff who can't solve the murder. 5. Several suspects with flimsy motives. 6. Ex husband now has younger woman/bimbo. 7. Likeable characters. 8. The lead character has two men interested in her. The only thing this book did not have was likeable characters. The characters were stereotypical, flat and annoying. I have no problem with authors using a formula to write a book. However, when using a formula you still have to be creative. This was not a creative attempt. I will not buy the next book.

    "Nice first book"

    Nice first book for a cozy mystery with some humor set in a small southern town. Each time I thought I knew the killer, I was wrong and had to continue on just like the heroin in the story. Loved the main characters Piper and her BFF, Reba Mae.

    I will probably give the next book in the series a try but I am hoping that the “uses for various spices” are not as over done as they were in this book. I know the heroin is supposed to be the owner of a spice shop but the use of spice gets as stale as most spices on the shelves in many homes.

    The narrator was great when using the voices of the many characters BUT as a reader (when the characters weren’t speaking) there was something about her tone that grated on my nerves.
