Book Review/Giveaway Lemon Pies and Little White Lies by Ellery Adams

Title: Lemon Pies and Little White Lies
Author: Ellery Adams
Series: Book 4 A Charmed Pie Shoppe Mystery
Publisher: Berkley
Format: Paperback
Source: Received for Review from Publisher
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Rating: Four Stars
Reviewed by: Tina



Step into Ella Mae LeFaye's world and your stepping into something magical. She is the proprietor of The Charmed Pie Shoppe. What is so magical about Ella Mae's world, you ask? She has these magical powers that let her bake her feelings into her pies therefore anyone that eats them will be captured with the pies emotional powers. She is the leader of this magical land in Havenwood where she and her family are from and all over the world.

With the murder of a friend of a friend named Mrs. Mercer and a looming powerful and life threatening storm in Scotland. More suspicions arise when the eye of the storm is in the shape of a four leaf clover the same shape as a burn on Ella Mae. Ella Mae and a new friend, the son of Joyce Mercer rush to save her aunts barn from fire and possibly her aunts life. Not far from her mind is Hugh Dylan, the love of her life who went off to find himself and his hidden powers.

Ella Mae must put her feelings for Hugh  on the back burner to try to figure out how to find a murderer an save her family and her people for for what it seems is certain destruction.

"What kind of enchantment did you add to this divine dish?"-Aunt Verena

 Ella Mae's powers are certainly enchanting. If only all of us could bake our feelings into a pie or any other food we loved and freeze it would be something truly magical. That's one of the things I love about Ella Mae, that and her love for food, HGTV and The Food Network. Her aunt's powers of making sculptures of animals to help owners with their grief and her love story is tear worthy.

 In all honesty, I don't usually like to read books that contain magic or fantasy I have a hard time understanding these magical and fantasy worlds because I like to stick to a more realistic mystery but I do have to say that Ella Mae is the one character that changed that for me. Passionate and heartfelt amateur sleuth with a touch of romance. A magical and mystical mystery that will have non believers believing and wanting to step into a fantasy world of magical powers and the best of all there's baking, a pie shoppe and best of all there's delicious pie.
