Magic, Lies, and Deadly Pies (A Pies Before Guys Mystery)

We rated this book:


Daisy spends her days as the Pie Girl, baking pies that people can’t get enough of, but it’s not the sugar or love that’s her secret. It’s the magic. By night, she secretly runs Pies Before Guys, a business that uses good pies to punish bad men. When a mysterious envelope shows up on her doorstep and threatens to expose her identity unless she makes pies for three women, Daisy is determined to find the source and protect all the women she’s helped.

Misha Popp tackles the weighty topic of justice through the eyes of women who don’t get the justice they deserve against their abusers. The story touches on serious issues in a lighthearted, pie-influenced fashion by using Daisy’s snarky attitude and fierce protection of women. The mystery revolves around a blackmailer who threatens to expose her and every woman she’s helped, which brings out a great plot point about women helping women. The other characters in her life give her a safety net to be herself and make her feel like she has a home.

Utterly original, Magic, Lies, and Deadly Pies is a deliciously charming story filled with female empowerment, humor, women helping women, and lots of tasty pies.
