Publisher's Summary

Ella Mae LeFaye's Charmed Pie Shoppe is wildly popular in Havenwood, Georgia, which is not surprising since Ella Mae can lace her baked goods with enchantments. The shop's extraordinary success seems destined to continue when Ella Mae meets an engaged couple who hire her to handle the dessert buffet at their wedding.
But Ella Mae has a lot on her plate. She is also searching for the origin of her magical powers, and hoping to determine if the spark of attraction she feels for the handsome Hugh Dylan is authentic or just her new abilities gone awry.
Then Ella Mae discovers a high-standing member of the community dead, and a wedding guest becomes seriously ill at the event she's catering. Now she'll have to use all her sleuthing skills and culinary talents to prove that her pies don't contain a killer ingredient.

It wasn't my slice of pie, overdone & cheesy

What disappointed you about Peach Pies and Alibis?

In book two I expected the colorful characters I liked to develop more, but instead I just got more shallow characters added into the book. If you want to listen to a women describe every single detail of her dessert & ingredients to you, like the just picked mouthwatering peach, then this is the book for you.


What was most disappointing about Ellery Adams’s story?

I was hopeful this book, the second in the series ,would be better than the first, but that was not the case at all. This book was even more shallow than the first, it felt unbalanced & did not flow well. We go from magic to murder to detailed pie description, never getting to the next level, barely scratching the surface.


Would you listen to another book narrated by C.S.E Cooney?

Yes, overall the narrator did a good job.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Peach Pies and Alibis?

I would take out half or more of Ella Mae's descriptions of pies. Just because she owns a pie shop, it doesn't mean that's all she should ever think or talk about.

Even better than first one!

Frightening parts were very unexpected, but I couldn't stop listening! The balance between everything good, sweet and loving versus pure evil, jealousy and hatred was well-done. Full of surprises.
