Each scene, each pie enmeshes the reader deeper into a small town rich in characters and character. Known for its friendliness, Havenwood, Georgia enchants its visitors like Ellery Adams enchants her readers.
Well written. It hurt to read the last page as a new segment in the series is a year away.
“Lemon Pies and Little White Lies” is the wonderfully done fourth book in Ellery Adams’ delightful Charmed Pie Shoppe cozy mystery series. This series is a nice blend of love, magic, and mystery with a touch of sadness and this book is no different. By now Ella Mae, her family, friends, and residents of Havenwood seem like old friends but don't get too comfortable - Adams has plenty of tricks up her sleeve. The plot of this book is a particularly strong one - not the murders but a series of storms that spells danger Ella Mae. Adams does a wonderful job of building up the suspense in the book that leads to an almost inevitable showdown but again she works her magic and the ending is nothing like I expected. Adams has ended other books in the series on a cliffhanger and does it again with this one - I just wish we didn't have to wait so long for the next book to see what happens to Ella Mae and the rest of the gang!
“Lemon Pies and Little White Lies” is another charming cozy mystery by Ellery Adams.
I love this series. The magic elements do require a suspension of disbelief, but it’s so well-written (I can just smell the pies Ella Mae creates) and the characters so compelling (I’m enjoying watching Ella Mae grow into her power and authority) that the magic seems … normal. There’s a storm coming – literally – and it’s headed straight for Ella Mae and her family. She’s worried about what the storm will do to her town – muggle and magical alike – and she will have to make some hard choices to protect her people and their way of life.
One of the things I particularly like about this series is, there’s a “right” ending and a “true” ending and the author always chooses the “true” ending. It might not be the happy-hearts-and-flowers ending I usually want for my favorite characters, but it’s the right one, the one that makes the stories ring true and resonate for me. I have become deeply attached to Ella Mae, and this fourth book just increased my affection for her. These books are so good, I buy them in paperback.
Ella Mae and her family and friends do not disappoint in the 4th installment of the "Charmed Pie Shoppe Mysteries." The struggle for love and doing what is right proves to be challenging for Ella Mae. Strange deaths occur and Ella Mae has to figure out who is behind these mysterious deaths and why they are doing them. Ella Mae has another male that may be vying for her love in the future (Finn Mercer, who comes to Havenwood after his mother's mysterious death and decides to make Havenwood his home) , this will be something to watch for in future installments of "A Charmed Pie Shoppe Mysteries." Ella Mae is getting use to her leadership role in their community and coordinates the first ever "History in the Baking" contest that will bring those of her kind all in one place and possibly help her defeat a very evil nemesis "Nimue." Nimue is the one behind all the destruction caused by massive storms that have wiped out groves all over the world, while Nimue is in search of a way to get all of Ella Mae's power. People
Ella Mae has trusted are actually indebted to Nimue and are the ones causing the mysterious happenings in Havenwood and the murders. Ella Mae risks it all to save the ones she loves. If you are a fan of Ellery Adams then you will not be disappointed and if you never have read her works, I recommend that you do. Where else can you get a quaint little town, love, romance and mysterious happenings all in one place.
