That Old Flame of Mine by J.J. Cook
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Stella Griffin has taken a temporary job as fire chief in Sweet Pepper, Tennessee, a small town known for its jalepeno peppers. Her assignment is to revive and reestablish the town's volunteer fire department. She hasn't been there long before a new friend dies mysteriously in a house fire. As she investigates she also discovers that her grandfather, previously unknown to her, is the main power in the small town. Stella also discovers that she's living in a haunted cabin.
This is obviously meant as a light-hearted, even humorous series, but I felt it was trying too hard -- too many ingredients in the stew of a plot.
