Looking for the ghost of Fire Chief Eric Gamlin in Sweet Pepper, Tennessee and #giveaway

Book #3 in the Sweet Pepper Fire Brigade Mysteries



Looking for Fire Chief Eric Gamlin
By Tagger Reams - Sweet Pepper Fire Brigade Communications
From In Hot Water
By J.J. Cook


I’ve been a member of the Sweet Pepper Fire Brigade since it started back in the early 1970s. That was back when Eric Gamlin was chief. He was a popular man in town, and one of my best friends when I got back from Vietnam. When he said we could put something together to take care of the community, we believed him, and we helped him.

Things were good for a while – until the county took notice and decided we needed some ‘help’. Eric was against them being involved. He said they wouldn’t do a good job. He was right, as usual. It didn’t take long before the county quietly ignored us. By that time, Eric had been killed in a suspicious fire.

I saw him from time to time after he died, until they shut the firehouse down. Then I guess he was alone up there in his cabin, until Sweet Pepper got smart and hired Stella Griffin to come down here from Chicago and give us a hand. She fit in right away, and got us set up like Chief Gamlin did. Even better, I could see my friend again. He saved my life when the firehouse burned down last year.

Now he’s missing. We’re not sure who took him, but we’re determined to find him and bring him back. I’m not waiting thirty years to see my old friend again. I know it sounds funny, considering he’s a ghost and all, but in Sweet Pepper, we like our ghosts as much as we like our hot peppers, and the Great Smoky Mountains! They’re part of who we are.

I hope you’ll come visit us in Sweet Pepper, home of the sweetest, hottest peppers in the world – and two of the best fire chiefs ever – living or dead!
