Popp’s delicious new cozy combines feminism, the MeToo movement, and other recent events into a fun mystery. Daisy Ellery is out to right the wrongs of the world, one pie at a time. Her pies are to die for, literally. Using skills passed down through generations of her family, Daisy exacts vengeance for the crimes men commit against the women of her town. When she learns someone’s been prowling around the camp trailer she calls home, she sets out to also solve crime. She finds a letter, guesses it’s blackmail, and starts considering suspects. A local pie-baking contest may just be the key to solving this mystery and allowing her to continue helping wronged women everywhere. Using her magic, passed down through the women of the world, Daisy is able to infuse her food not only with ingredients to kill, but to also strengthen. Narrator Tanya Eby brings the effervescent Daisy to life.
VERDICT Fans of The Great British Baking Show will enjoy hearing about the pies made by Daisy. This first in a new series is for fans of cozy mysteries looking for one with a modern twist.
