Spotlight: Risky Biscuits by Mary Lee Ashford

Today the spotlight is shining on “Risky Biscuits,” book two in the Sugar and Spice Mystery series by Mary Lee Ashford. Sugar and Dixie and their cookbook publishing company are once again drawn into to small-town intrigue and murder. I am looking forward to reading this series. St Ignatius, Iowa along with Sugar and Dixie (not to mention some wonderful sounding recipes) have caught my attention.

About The Book:

Risky Biscuits (A Sugar & Spice Mystery) by Mary Lee Ashford

Risky-Biscuits-HighResFormer magazine editor “Sugar” Calloway’s life has taken a delicious twist since she launched a community cookbook publishing business with blue-ribbon baker Dixie Spicer. Now, these amateur sleuths must solve a small-town murder—without getting burned…

Sugar and Spice Cookbooks’ newest project is a fundraiser organized by the St. Ignatius Crack of Dawn Breakfast Club, famous for their all-you-can-eat biscuits and gravy events. But when a group member is found dead, Sugar and Spice’s priorities change from raising dough to figuring out who put murder on the menu.

The return of former bad boy Nick Marchant has stirred the town’s gossips too. Add a few grudges and some old-fashioned greed over a land deal into the mix, and it’s a recipe for mayhem. And when someone serves up a second helping of murder, Sugar and Spice need to sift the guilty from the blameless, or their next breakfast may be their last . . .
