That Old Flame of Mine
by J.J. Cook
J.J. Cook is the pseudonym for husband/wife writing team Joyce and Jim Lavene (hence the J.J.) who write paranormal mysteries set in the south. In this first book of a new cozy series, Chicago firefighter Stella Griffin has been injured on the job and during her 3-month medical leave has taken on the job as temporary fire chief for Sweet Pepper, TN. Sweet Pepper wants to re-establish their fire brigade and look to the temporary chief to get them trained and certified. A friend in town, Tory Lambert, believes the death of her first husband several years earlier is suspicious and wants to speak to Stella about it, but before they can talk, Tory is found dead in her burning home. Both are suspicious events but the police chief is eager to sweep things under the rug. In the meantime, a ghost seems to be haunting Stella's cabin. An easy, quiet, enjoyable mystery about small town characters you'll come to like. And the mystery was good too! Each book ends with a cliffhanger. -- recommended by Donna G. - Virtual Services Department
