From bestselling author, Mary Ellen Hughes, comes a second, delicious Pickled and Preserved Mystery:
Piper Lamb knows how to make fruits and vegetables keep for months. Unfortunately, it's the people around her who are expiring too soon.
After her fiancé left her, Piper came to Cloverdale to rebuild her life and open up her shop, Piper's Picklings, to sell pickles and preserves. When her ex decides to drop in for a visit—just as things are heating up between her and a local Christmas tree farmer—Piper finds herself in a jam.
But there are other visitors to worry about...
An Italian soccer team is set to play the Cloverdale All-Stars in an exhibition game. Their manager, Raffaele Conti, was a bitter rival of Piper's dill supplier, local farmer Gerald Standley. After Conti is found dead in Standley's field, Piper must work to clear Gerald's name and find out who relished killing Raffaele before the town is soured by another death.


"A pleasing puzzle, 'License to Dill' preserves Hughes' stature as a first-rate mysterian." – Jay Strafford, Richmond Times Dispatch

"The story has a wonderful mystery, fun characters, a nice romantic subplot and the perfect amount of humor. I am already looking forward to my next visit to Cloverdale!!"— Escape with Dollycas
