pie 5 cover

It’s Christmas time and pie shop owner, Bertha Hannah, is gearing up with a brand new Gingerbread Pie and a little holiday shopping. Bert and her best friend Carla find themselves in a spending mood as the newest mall in the area advertises a plethora of specialty shops, department stores, and restaurants. It’s time for a girl’s day out!

Off on their festive adventure, the ladies run into Detective Mannor–a man Bert recently turned down for a date—and the day heads rapidly downhill when a body is discovered in one of the mall’s most popular shops. A cheerful season of peace and goodwill has turned blood red with homicide and it’s up to Bert to figure out the mystery before Santa can say Ho-Ho-Ho.

What’s Thanksgiving without a little bit of pie from Pies and Pages?!
 
Pick up your copy of Killer Thanksgiving Pie by Carolyn Q. Hunter for only 99 cents and dig into a deliciously killer cozy mystery!
Pie 4
Thanksgiving is a big deal for pie and book shop owner, Bertha Hannah, largely because it happens to be the most pie-related holiday on the calendar. Bert soon finds herself overwhelmed with the number of orders which need
to be completed before the holiday rush, but she’s vowed to let nothing keep her from honoring her annual commitment to volunteer at the local soup kitchen.

Unfortunately, the holiday production schedule comes to a shuddering halt, when an unknown man is stabbed to death in the alleyway behind the kitchen. Could his murder be related to a recent string of mysterious deaths that Bert read about in the paper, or was the man merely the victim of a random mugging?

As she is dragged further and further into the investigation, Bert begins to wonder if she’ll ever be able to find the time and peace to stop and give thanks this year.

Enjoy this mysterious holiday treat by the beloved Carolyn Q. Hunter!!

Things are all astir in Haunted Falls, as the autumn season officially begins. Diner owner Sonja Reed is already formulating all sorts of new recipe ideas for the coming holidays and is even beginning to get accustomed to living in a fancy estate home.

Unfortunately, not everyone is as happy as she is. The new middle school principal has cancelled the annual Halloween Party in favor of a Harvest Festival. Parents and students alike are up in arms about the change, but things go from bad to worse when the principal is found dead in his office.

As usual, it falls to Sonja and Frank to track down the killer before holiday festivities can begin. All the evidence seems to point in one direction, but Sonja–partially thanks to her paranormal gifts–has a gut feeling that there is more to the murder than meets the eye.

It’s Halloween, and Bert Hannah is eagerly looking forward to the annual trunk-or-treat being held at her church. She’s got a great costume picked out and has plans to hand out mini Jack-O-Lantern Pies. The celebration takes a tragic turn when an accident occurs in the middle of the festivities and a member of the congregation ends up dead.

Bert is the only person who actually witnessed what happened, and the more she thinks about it, the more she wonders if it was merely an accident after all. It seems as though murder has struck again, and Bert is determined to pin down the killer before they can deliver one more Halloween trick.

Welcome to Whipper Will Junction, a small beach town in Maine with spectacular views of the mountains, where the residents all know each other and each other’s business. Tourist season brings the sleepy little berg to life, and locals often find themselves outnumbered by visitors, fifty to one. The idyllic hamlet is known for being a safe, quiet place to live, and until recently, there hadn’t been a murder in Whipper Will Junction for over forty years.

A recent spate of murders threatens to rock the town to its core, particularly when Richard Wells, a beloved elder statesman of the town disappears, leaving residents to wonder who or what is causing the tragic upheaval.

Tabitha Moon, the owner of a local shop, Jellies, Jams, and Weddings, is a bit bewildered to find herself smack dab in the middle of a real life mystery, and vows to do her best to help solve it. Teaming up with her best friend, Jenny, and her adorable crush, Greg, the determined shopkeeper sets out on a mission to make Whipper Will Junction safe again. Can the trio find Richard Wells before it’s too late?

With a sprinkling of loveable locals and their often misguided efforts, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll fall in love with the down-home goodness of Whipper Will Junction. Come visit for a spell, in a town where the gossip is plentiful, and so are the bodies…
