Description

It's the Lunar New Year, and fortunes are about to change.
Pepper Reece, owner of the Spice Shop in Seattle's Pike Place Market, loves a good festival, especially one serving up tasty treats. So what could be more fun than a food walk in the city's Chinatown–International District, celebrating the Year of the Rabbit?

But when her friend Roxanne stumbles across a man's body in the Gold Rush, a long-closed residential hotel, questions leap out. Who was he? What was he doing in the dust-encrusted herbal pharmacy in the hotel's basement? Why was the pharmacy closed up—and why are the owners so reluctant to talk?

With each new discovery, Pepper finds herself asking new questions and facing more brick walls.

Then questions arise about Roxanne and her relationship to Pepper's boyfriend Nate, away fishing in Alaska. Between her worries and her struggle to hire staff at the Spice Shop, Pepper has her hands and her heart full. Still, she can't resist the lure of the Gold Rush and its tangled history of secrets and lies stretching back nearly a century.

But the killer is on her tail, driven by hidden demons and desires. As Pepper begins to expose the long-concealed truth, a bigger question emerges: Can she uncover the secrets of the Gold Rush Hotel without being pushed from the wok into the fire?

        Pepper Reece, owner of the Spice Shop in Seattle's Pike Place Market, is enjoying the Year of the Rabbit parade and Chinese New Year food walk in Chinatown's International District, until a friend begs for help. Roxanne Davidson, a museum curator, is working at the Gold Rush Hotel, a long-closed residential hotel, where she has found a body. Why was the dead man, dressed as a Chinese lion dancer, in the hotel's hidden Chinese pharmacy? Although an older resident of the district warns Pepper to leave the past alone, she's intrigued by the stories of the Chinese immigrants to Seattle, as well as the history of the hotel and the pharmacy. The amateur sleuth suspects Roxanne knows more than she's telling, and her family relationship to Pepper's boyfriend makes Pepper uneasy when the police suggest she ask him about Roxanne. If Pepper is to sate her curiosity, she'll have to juggle her work at the Spice Shop, her training of new employees, and her research into Chinatown's history. VERDICT Budewitz's follow-up to Peppermint Barked features recipes and a list of characters. The inclusion of Chinatown's history, along with the stories of the culture and residents, adds a depth seldom found in cozy mysteries; see also Vivien Chien's "Noodle Shop" mysteries.--Lesa Holstine
