Synopsis:

Her Charmed Pie Shoppe is open for business, but baker Ella Mae LeFaye is about to discover solving a murder is not as easy as pie…

 

Owning the Charmed Pie Shoppe and serving enchanted treats in the magical town of Havenwood, Georgia, seemed like a little slice of heaven for Ella Mae LeFaye. But now her hopes for both a lasting romance with Hugh Dylan and business success are starting to seem like pie in the sky, and Ellas left wondering: Where has the magic gone?

 

When an enchanted grove is set ablaze, Ella realizes she has more grave problems. With her magic waning, shes going to have to sleuth from scratch to stop an arsonist who has no respect for sacred ground—or human life…

But her pies aren't just delicious. They're having magical effects on the people who eat them--and the public is hungry for more.

Discovering her hidden talent for enchantment, Ella Mae makes her own wish come true by opening the Charmed Pie Shoppe. But with her old nemesis Loralyn Gaynor making trouble, and her old crush Hugh Dylan making nice, she has more than pie on her plate. and when Loralyn's fiancé is found dead--killed with Ella Mae's rolling pin--it'll take all her sweet magic to clear her name.

Pies, charmed pies, what a great idea. Ella Mae LeFaye bakes pies when there's a crisis, however, hers are charmed. She left her husband when she found him in the elevator cheating on her with twins. She left the big city and went home to Havenwood, Georgia with her tail between her legs, back to her loving family. When she learns that the pies she makes can influence other peoples moods and actions, she's shocked, but learns how to use her gift. Her family wants her to open a bakery, her old enemy Loralyn Gaynor wants the building and will stop at nothing to get it, and when she sees her old crush Hugh Dylan she might have to rethink the old part. When Loralyn's fiance' dies, killed with Ella Mae's rolling pin, she becomes the prime suspect. I loved this book, the beginning of a new series. It has recipes too.
