Waiting on Wednesday - November 4th

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This is one of my favorite cozy series and I read each book as they are released. The author, J.J. Cook, is better known as Joyce and Jim Lavene. One of my favorite writing teams. I still can't believe Joyce is gone. She is greatly missed.

Synopsis from Goodreads...

Old rivalries heat up in the fourth Sweet Pepper Fire Brigade mystery from the national bestselling author of In Hot Water.

Fire chief Stella Griffin has been put in charge of judging the annual recipe contest, but Eric—her resident ghost and true culinary genius—has vanished. Before she can track down his latest haunt, she’s called in to investigate a local moonshine distillery that was set ablaze, making her realize there’s more than pies and cakes cooking in Sweet Pepper.

As rumors of a revived whiskey war ignite, Stella turns to the town’s elders to help her find answers. The past might have some clues as to what has sparked the present fires. But when following a lead lands her in buried rubble, Stella realizes she must extinguish this case fast or she might be going down in flames.

Publisher: Berkley
Release Date: January, 2016

What books are you waiting for?


  1. Yes! I love this series! Can't wait to catch up with my old friends. :)

  2. Oh, this one sounds so good! I have seen interviews with these two authors....and I didn't realize Joyce was gone.

    I love the look of this one...thanks for sharing. Here's mine: “THE PASSENGER”

  3. Wonderful choice and I love that cover. I didn't know Jim and Joyce wrote this series as well. I can't believe she passed and I wonder if any of the series will continue.

  4. It's up to 4 books now? I didn't realize that. It is hard to believe Joyce is gone.

  5. This series is one I want to start. I'm still in shock over Joyce as well. I wonder what will happen to all the different series they had together.

  6. I haven't read or heard about these but they look and sound like good books from the comments. :)
