After being fired from her New York banking job for embezzlement, Maggie returns home to Durham, North Carolina, to help with her aunt’s pie shop. Her ex-boss Louis shocks her by coming to the shop and telling her he knows who really stole the money, and he is going to have a press conference to clear her name. Before that can happen, though, Maggie finds his body outside the back door of the shop. Reporter Ryan Summerour helps her learn that Louis was poisoned. After being away for years, Maggie discovers that life in Durham is more appealing than a return to New York, as is time spent with Ryan. Still, there’s the matter of the unsolved murder and the embezzlement charge. After Maggie’s laptop is stolen, it’s clear the killer may be nearby, and she and Ryan work to solve the case. The “pie mystery” is definitely a cozy trend at the moment (watch out, cupcakes!), and readers of Ellery Adams’ series will surely want to add Grant to their reading (and baking) lists. --Amy Alessio
Poor Maggie Grady, not only has she lost her high powered job and was forced to move back to her hometown in N.C., but her ex-boss ends up dead on the back doorstep of the pie shop she is helping her sweet aunt with. Maggie finds herself in the thick of things and must prove to the police and her hometown that she had nothing to do with his death.
If you are a cozy mystery fan, I think you will enjoy this book. And make sure to check out the books in all of the series that the Lavenes write. ~ Tess Tipton
This is a pretty good mystery and with a bit romance thrown in. The story flows well and the killer was a surprise to me. I especially like the last few lines in the book that set up the premise for the next story. She presents it well and hooks your interest. I'll be watching for it.
Happy reading. bkfaerie.blogpot.com
