Curried Away
by Gail Oust

I have been enjoying this series from the beginning and I thought this book was a good addition to it.
~A. Holland Reads

I love this series. Piper is probably my favorite cozy mystery heroine at this point.
~A Chick Who Reads

Curried Away is a quick read, due to a fast-moving plot with twists and turns.
~Jane Reads

I have enjoyed this series from the start. All my favorite characters are back and there is plenty of drama over and above the murder mystery.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

CURRIED AWAY is a tasty blend of southern charm, humor, and culinary mystery.
~Readeropolis

This installment did not disappoint. It had humor, a little romance, and of course, mystery.

Piper gets herself into another mystery and she is certainly a smart cookie! I loved her tactic on the solving of this murder, she reminds me of a Murder, She Wrote Jessica Fletcher, plotting and solving.

Synopsis

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, the latest entry in Gail Oust’s mouth-watering Spice Shop Mysteries is sure to delight both old fans and new.

About The Author

Friends often accuse Gail Oust of flunking retirement.  While working as a nurse/vascular technologist, Gail penned nine historical romances under the pseudonym Elizabeth Turner for Avon, Pocket, Berkley, and Kensington.  It wasn’t until she and her husband retired to South Carolina that inspiration struck for a mystery.  Hearing the words, “maybe it’s a dead body,” while golfing with friends fired her imagination for the Bunco Babe Mystery series originally published by NAL.  In conjunction with Beyond the Page Publishing, the Bunco Babe series has  been republished in digital format as the Kate McCall Mysteries complete with new titles and a whole new look.  Gail is currently writing the Spice Shop Mysteries for Minotaur/St. Martin’s.  When she isn’t reading, writing, or sleeping, she can usually be found on the golf course or hanging out with friends.
