Guilty as Cinnamon

 I am truly falling in love with Pepper Reece and her Spice Shop series.  Guilty in Cinnamon is the 2nd in the series and readers get a glimpse into the restaurant industry and Pike  Peak Shopping Arcade in Seattle.  The characters are very quirky and hard not to love.  The food descriptions combined with the spice descriptions and historical facts are an amazing enhancement to the mysteries contained in the series.  This series wins me over even more than the Food Village one set in Montana.  I am so happy there are more books in this series to continue reading about Pepper and her great cast of employees and friends.  

The mystery is a well structured story and it definitely has a twist that I didn't see coming.  If you like clean cozies with multiple storylines mixed in then this is a great series for you to read.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a great twisting ending to a cozy. It's hard not to have a mouth-watering experience while reading this book. Pepper is a great character and the series gives a great peak behind the restaurant business in Seattle. There are definitely quirky characters that come and go from the spice shop and the Pikes Peak Market. I appreciate the chapter intros with the different facts about the spices and the spice trade. They make a nice addition to the story and add to the unique charm of the series.
