Description

In this cozy mystery, a young woman is framed by her boss for embezzlement and flees to her aunt’s pie shop—but when her ex-boss turns up dead on their doorstep she must start her own investigation to find the killer—before he finds her.

CHOCOHOLIC CREAM. BOUNTIFUL BLUEBERRY. LOTSA LEMON MERINGUE. EVEN DANGEROUSLY DAMSON.

Who could resist such pies? Who would even want to resist the pie shop that makes them? Certainly not the residents of Durham, North Carolina, and the little bakery and café called Pie in the Sky is one of the most popular meet-up places in town.

Unjustly accused of cooking the books, Maggie Grady is forced to retreat from her high-flying New York financial career to the town where she grew up. Her aunt Clara greets her with open arms and a job at the family-owned business that has baked the best pies in the South for over forty years. Unfortunately, while Maggie is determined to return to banking, her reputation there seems permanently in the pits. That is, until her old boss, Lou, visits with news that he’s found the real crook. Before he can reveal the details, though, Maggie finds his body right behind the pie shop.

With only her own word that Lou planned to exonerate her, Maggie is in the spotlight. The police seem to suspect that Aunt Clara’s damson pie may not be just dangerously delectable, but downright deadly. Maggie doesn’t just have her own name to clear; she has to make sure that her aunt’s beloved business isn’t harmed, either. Yummy local reporter Ryan Summerour appears eager to help, and Maggie can’t help hoping that it’s not just the police who find her a person of interest—but Ryan, as well. She’d thought it challenging to make the perfect pie crust that Aunt Clara demands, but that turns out to be nothing compared with finding a murderer. . . .

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 15, 2013 – A well-constructed plot and lively dialogue that s not excessively cute lift this promising debut from the pseudonymous Grant (husband-and-wife authors). After being accused of stealing funds from a client, banker Maggie Grady heads home to Durham, N.C., where she finds work at Pie in the Sky, her aunt s pie shop near the Duke University campus. Maggie has two goals to prove her innocence and get back to the kind of high-powered career she once had. Her former boss, Lou Goldberg, shows up, promising to clear her name at a press conference the next day, but before the day is done, Lou is dead and Maggie is a suspect in his murder. Maggie has enough charm and wit to aid the police in the search for the real criminal. Fans of Joanne Fluke s Hannah Swenson series and other culinary cozies will be satisfied. Recipes at the back include Lotsa Lemon Meringue Pie and Clara s Coconut Custard Pie.
