From USA Today bestselling author Janel Gradowski comes a deliciously deadly mystery...
Amy Ridley’s best friend, Carla, is getting married, and Amy is delighted to be recruited as the head wedding planner—even if Carla's demands are less than conventional. Case in point: Carla insists on a tower of doughnuts in place of a wedding cake. But navigating the world of nuptials becomes the least of Amy's problems when the owner of a menswear shop is found dead, and Carla's fiancé is assigned to the case. With the honeymoon in jeopardy, Amy and Carla vow to help track down the killer...but they soon discover there are even more sinister happenings affecting the businesses in downtown Kellerton, Michigan. If Amy doesn't figure out who is behind the deadly schemes, the nearly newlywed detective may just be solving another murder—hers!

"PIES & PERIL is a fun read with, murder, arson, threats and romance in the plot! This is a very enjoyable story with a very satisfactory closure. There is also an added bonus of recipes at the end of the book. Amy's many trial recipes made me hungry and inspired me to bake some goodies! Enjoy!"
~ Indy Girl
I was so excited that some of my favorite characters were back with another whoduit. Janel Gradowski is a fun story teller that leaves you wanting more when the book comes to a conclusion. Luckily, while I'm reading her next book in the sequel, she writing another and doesn't leave me waiting to long for the storyline to continue. Amy, Carla, Bruce and all the other characters take you on a ride and there's a wedding being planned in a two week span and don't forget whodunit. WOW. So much going on and so hard to stop reading. Well done!!
Had a great time reading this book.
