Playing with Fire By: J.J. Cook Copyright: January 2014 Publisher: Berkeley Prime Crime GETTING WARMER Fire Chief Stella Griffin is working to solve the mysterious death of her predecessor, Eric Gamlyn—who also haunts her cabin. Yet the more she learns, the more burning questions she must answer. Just as Stella thinks she has a lead from Deputy Chum, someone snuffs her hopes—and the lawman. Adding fuel to the fire, Stella’s parents soon arrive—with her ex-boyfriend—hoping to persuade her to return to Chicago. Now Stella is torn between the life she left behind and uncovering what happened to her ghostly friend. But she’d better think fast or more than her investigation could go up in flames. Stella is being pulled from all sides. She needs to find out who murdered her predecessor and keep her parents at bay at the same time. A retiring deputy visiting her with information he’d kept quiet about for years, exhuming the old chief’s body to find out who’s buried in the grave, and deciding whether to go back to Chicago are all weighing heavily on her. On top of that her parents show up with her ex in tow to bring her home is really putting the cherry on top. This second book in the Sweet Pepper series is bringing a lot of the storyline together in one book. I read this book with a sense of wonder and joy and pieces started to fall into place and the author’s talent takes us on a magical journey. I highly recommend this series to all lovers of cozies with a touch of the supernatural. FTC Full Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the author who only requested that I write a fair and honest review.show more
