Is Val’s breakfast pie the quiche of death?
 
Owning her own business seemed like pie in the sky to Valentine Harris when she moved to the coastal California town of San Nicholas, expecting to start a new life with her fiancé. Five months—and a broken engagement—later, at least her dream of opening a pie shop has become a reality. But when one of her regulars keels over at the counter while eating a quiche, Val feels like she’s living a nightmare.
 
After the police determine the customer was poisoned, business at Pie Town drops faster than a fallen crust. Convinced they’re both suspects, Val’s flaky, seventy-something pie crust maker Charlene drags her boss into some amateur sleuthing. At first Val dismisses Charlene’s half-baked hypotheses, but before long the ladies uncover some shady dealings hidden in fog-bound San Nicholas. Now Val must expose the truth—before a crummy killer tries to shut her pie hole.

Story Locale: fictional San Nicholas, CA (northern California)

Food-based mysteries seem to be the most popular with cozy mystery readers, and they’ll eat up the pie shop hook of the Pie Town Mysteries.

Will target fans of dessert-based mystery series like Joanne Fluke’s Hannah Swensen, Laura Bradford’s Emergency Dessert Squad, Jenn McKinlay’s Cupcake Bakery, and Ellery Adams’s Charmed Pie Shoppe.

Kirsten is the author of The Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum Mysteries (Midnight Ink) and the Riga Hayworth Paranormal Mysteries (self-published).

Based in San Mateo, CA, Kirsten Weiss writes genre-blending novels: urban
fantasy/mystery, steampunk/suspense, and cozy mysteries. The mix just makes things more fun! Kirsten has never met a dessert she didn’t like, and her guilty pleasures are watching Ghost Whisperer reruns and drinking red wine. Readers can find her online at www.kirstenweiss.com.
