Book Description

Book two in the popular (and delicious!) Pie Shop Mystery series

It’s summertime in Crystal Cove, California, and sales are brisk at the outdoor Food Fair. There’s fresh bread, artisan cheese, gourmet cupcakes, plus Hanna’s delicious pies. When despised local food critic Heath Barr is found stabbed to death, no one is sorry to hear the news—except perhaps Hanna, the main suspect. It doesn’t help that Hanna’s high school crush is the police chief. Hanna must track down a killer while up to her elbows in pie dough.

Featuring scrumptious recipes, including Double Chocolate Cream Pie and Butterscotch Pecan Pie

My Review

Well written, light read perfect for an afternoon read.  I enjoy cozy mysteries that are centered around food and Never Say Pie is centered around Hanna's Pie Shop in the seaside town of Crystal Cove in California.  The action happens at a Food Fair or what I would call a weekly farmer's market.  A newspaper critic who has criticized all the tradespeople's wares is found murdered.  They are all suspects.  

The police chief is an old friend of Hanna's who is not too happy with Hanna sticking her nose into everything.  But she does anyway!  And of course she stumbles across the murderer after a number of false starts and misadventures.

Great cozy read!  Yummy sounding pies!
