Welcome to Sweet Pepper, Tennessee. Nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains, it’s home to the hottest and sweetest peppers in the world-as well as at least one ghost and a hotbed of secrets. 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.
