Summary
When the going gets tough, Ella Mae LaFaye bakes pies. So when she catches her husband cheating in New York, she heads back home to Havenwood, Georgia, where she can drown her sorrows in fresh fruit filling and flakey crust. 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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Books by the Bay series author Adams begins a new line featuring Ella Mae LeFaye and her return to Havenwood, Georgia, after the abrupt end of her seven-year New York marriage. She is enveloped by her mother and her aunts, but childhood nemesis Loralyn wants Ella Mae gone. Ella Mae opens a pie shop but is soon a suspect in the murder of Loralyn's fiance, who was killed with Ella Mae's marble rolling pin. Then another victim dies in the pie shop, and the police pursue Ella Mae while she hunts for clues to clear herself. A dusting of magic covers the story as Ella Mae learns of her own powers and recognizes other talents in her family. The magic offers a new twist but does not overpower the savory blend of suspense, pies, and engaging characters. Foodie mystery fans will enjoy this, along with titles from Carol Culver's pie-shop series.--Alessio, Amy Copyright 2010 Booklist"
