My Rating :
Will Val pie hard on national TV?
Business at the bakery may have slowed down, but Val Harris isn't about to eat humble pie--not until a reality cooking show decides to whip the struggling Pie Town into shape. If Val can tolerate criticism from an abrasive pastry chef during filming, the free publicity might turn the unusual opportunity into the sweetest deal she didn't know she needed.
Except no one in San Nicholas has an appetite for dessert once murder steals the spotlight. When the show's bossy producer gets pushed to her death, Val and her flaky, septuagenarian pie crust expert, Charlene, follow crumbs in hopes of finding the killer. But with cameras still rolling and the shocking identity of the victim's replacement a guaranteed recipe for disaster, Val needs to stay cool long enough to solve the crime and keep Pie Town from falling apart--or else she just might go up in smoke before she ever graces the small screen.
Pie Hard is the third book in the Pie Town Mystery series. I have come to really love this series and am always super excited when a new installment is added. Kristen Weiss has with transforming her characters to people and I am always happy to catch up with Val and Charlene. Whether these two are baking some pies or solving a murder I always know I am in for a treat! That is no different with this book and I felt the excitement throughout. If you are a cozy mystery reader and haven’t had a chance to check out this series yet I highly recommend it! Not only will you find delicious recipes and an amazing set of characters but you will be itching to solve the crime right along with them!
In this addition, Val finds herself part of a TV show called Pie Hard. Thinking (and hoping) that Pie Hard will help turn her business into a place more people will frequent she goes along with the crazy people who produce it. But when one of the producers end up dead she has no choice but to find out “who-dun-it” before it ruins her business for good…
Follow Val, Charlene, Ray, and a slew of other characters as they track clues to find out who the killer is before it’s too late! But don’t read this one on an empty stomach because it will be growling in need with all the delicious desserts being whipped up within the pages.
