Pie Town Mystery Number Five
This Halloween, pie shop proprietor Val Harris must patch together clues to solve a murder by pumpkin . . .
You read that correctly. Murder by pumpkin.
Pie Town is back and Val and her quirky band of bakers are gearing up for the annual pumpkin festival. Val is a judge for the pie-making contest and it looks like her boyfriend is entering the contest. Could get sticky.
As Val and Charlene stroll through the booths and the pumpkin patch they find a dead body under a huge pumpkin with a forklift standing by it. The woman was a contestant in the pie contest and the pumpkin belongs to the father of Val’s assistant.
Mazes, curses, pumpkin shenanigans, and a feud with the next town all combine with the colorful and hilarious staff of Pie Town to give us another great installment in the series.
Always well done!
