This time, Bert is bending over backwards to sell as many Valentine themed pies and romance novels as possible. The last thing on her mind is another date with the gruff, but surprisingly handsome, Detective Harry Mannor. However, everything goes crazy when another dead body is found--this time inside of Bert's store!
The plot for this book is one I've been working on for a few months. It required a lot of research and fact checking to make sure I was getting the "science" right, as well as the proper procedures. It was a truly challenging yet fun mystery to create.
Additionally, the pie that is featured in this book is one of my favorites to date. Every time I had a scene involving the dish, my mouth was watering.
Here is the book's description from Amazon:
Happy Valentine's Day from the amazing Carolyn Q. Hunter!!!
Valentine's Day is fast approaching and much to Bertha Hannah's surprise and delight, the Season of Love is busier than even the Christmas holiday. Overwhelmed with baking pies and making special deliveries, Bert doesn't have any extra time for murder and other nonsense. When a young woman's body is found stuffed away in the back storeroom of Pies and Pages, however, she’s once again thrust into the middle of a mess.
What seems, at first, to be merely a horrific accident, turns out to be far more sinister, when Bert realizes that a local corporation may have some connection to the murder. The roots of dishonesty, sabotage, money, and LOVE all seem to have ties to this most recent case. Will Bert be able to uncover the truth before Valentine's Day, or will her business be buried in intrigue?
