Review
Ella Mae LeFaye is settling into the routine of owning her own pie shop, as well as her newly discovered magical powers; not the best time to investigate a string of murders, but she'll have to, since the enemy behind them threatens everything she holds dear. Having returned to her hometown after a disastrous marriage, Ella Mae loves the new life she's building, even if it means juggling her business, her newfound talent for enchantment, a fledgling romance with her oldest crush, and her beloved but bustling magical family and friends. Business is booming, and when she goes to check out a used Jeep to buy as a delivery truck, it turns into a serendipitous trip: She meets a local cheese producer, some potential catering clients and a possible new helper for the Charmed Pie Shoppe. Life seems wonderful, but she barely has time to take a breath from her productive excursion when she and her Aunt Dee discover a friend dead in her home, and only days later, when Ella Mae is catering an event, another friendly acquaintance winds up dead, too. While seemingly unconnected, and even accidental, Ella Mae's mother and aunts are convinced the deaths are murder and that they are attempts to block a critical magical ritual set to take place during the upcoming harvest. The more Ella Mae is swept into the investigation, the more she realizes how little she knows about her magical history or the deep mystical heritage she's a part of. But the murders are designed to shut down the enchanted community of Havenwood for good, and Ella Mae can't let that happen. As her powers blossom, it becomes clear that there's something peculiar and special about her experience, and as the menacing figure gets closer to Ella Mae, some long-held secrets and magical mysteries will unfold, changing life as she--and all of Havenwood--knows it. An original, intriguing storyline that celebrates women, family, friendship and loyalty within an enchanted world, with a hint of romance, an engaging cast of characters and the promise of a continued saga of magical good confronting evil.(Kirkus Reviews, February 1, 2013)
