Peach Pies and Alibis by Ellery Adams (Tuesday Intros & Teaser Tuesday)


Title: Peach Pies and Alibis
Author: Ellery Adams
Publication: 5 March 2013
FormatKindle ebook

Amazon Description

Ella Mae LeFaye’s Charmed Pie Shoppe is wildly popular in Havenwood, Georgia—which is not surprising since Ella Mae can lace her baked goods with enchantments. The shop’s extraordinary success seems destined to continue when Ella Mae meets an engaged couple who hire her to handle the dessert buffet at their wedding.

But Ella Mae has a lot on her plate. She is also searching for the origin of her magical powers—and hoping to determine if the spark of attraction she feels for the handsome Hugh Dylan is authentic or just her new abilities gone awry.

Then Ella Mae discovers a high-standing member of the community dead, and a wedding guest becomes seriously ill at the event she’s catering. Now she’ll have to use all her sleuthing skills and culinary talents to prove her pies don’t contain a killer ingredient . . .

 Ramble-y Teaserish Stuff

I've had several "eh" books in a row the past week or so -- hence the lack of posts since October 28th. Thankfully, the Alphabet Soup group on Facebook was given it's mini-challenge for November : to read a book with a fruit, nut or vegetable in the title. 

I immediately thought of Peach Pies and Alibis by Ellery Adams. 

Sure, I have far too many books on my NetGalley shelf that should be read soon, but the burnout is real kids .... and Ellery has never failed me in times of "I just don't wanna."

I just downloaded it so all I really know about the book at this point is from the Amazon description, the first two paragraphs, and the random blurb from the randomly chosen 40% mark ... which, eerily enough, fits perfectly with the intro. 

It's like .... magic or something. 

I also know that I loved the first one in the series so I'm very much looking forward to diving in to this one. I may even pick up a small peach pie after work to celebrate the temporary freedom from the "should" list.


"First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros" is from the first paragraph or two of a book being read now (or in the future) and is hosted by Socrates' Book Reviews. 

"Teaser Tuesday" at The Purple Booker asks for a random line or two from anywhere in the book currently being read.

I read the first book in this series and loved it. It's another series I have to get back to at some point.

I figured out last year that if I read one Ellery Adams book a month (not counting, of course, the ones I've already read), it would take me almost 4 years to catch up.... and she keeps writing so it would just keep going 😊
