October isn’t just about Halloween. It’s also about pumpkin spice!
Now, I’ll admit to enjoying pumpkin spice year round (though never in latte form), and I don’t completely hate the plethora of options this time of year. I do, however, acknowledge that some people take their obsession of this spice blend a bit too far.
The following shorts and books poke fun at autumnal pumpkinsanity.

Death by Pumpkin Spice (A Bookstore Café Mystery) by Alex Erickson
Bookstore café owner Krissy Hancock would rather spend Halloween serving pumpkin goodies than wearing costumes with Pine Hills’ wealthiest at Yarborough mansion, especially when the soiree shapes up to be more trick than treat.
As if a run-in with an old flame and a failed marriage proposal weren’t enough to horrify Krissy for one night, a woman is found strangled to death in a room filled with ominous jack-o’-lanterns. All signs suggest a crime of passion—but when the hostess’s jewelry disappears, malevolent intentions seem way more likely.
With the estate on lockdown and a killer roaming the halls, Krissy must help Officer Paul Dalton investigate each nook, cranny, and guest for answers—while also confronting a few demons of her own. Someone has lots of skeletons in the closet, and Krissy better tread lightly to expose them.
