Publisher's Summary

When the going gets tough, Ella Mae LaFaye bakes pies. So when she catches her husband cheating in New York, she heads back home to Havenwood, Georgia, where she can drown her sorrows in fresh fruit filling and flaky crust.

But her pies aren't just delicious. They're having magical effects on the people who eat them, and the public is hungry for more. Discovering her hidden talent for enchantment, Ella Mae makes her own wish come true by opening the Charmed Pie Shoppe. But with her old nemesis, Loralyn Gaynor, making trouble and her old crush, Hugh Dylan, making nice, she has more than pie on her plate. When Loralyn's fiancé is found dead - killed with Ella Mae's rolling pin - it'll take all her sweet magic to clear her name.

    "A real treat!"

    Let me start by saying that this book isn't supernatural in nature at all. This isn't about witches or magic or anything dark. If anyone has seen the hallmark series "the good witch," it's similar in nature. There isn't any direct "magic" or anything but more of a tongue in cheek hint that the main character has some special talents. Don't be swayed away by thinking its a witchy or supernatural theme, because it's not.

    I love Ellery Adams as an author, and this is book is up there with her "books by the bay" series in terms of character development and plot development. The writing is so well done that you get teleported into this world with Ella May & her aunts. The narration was very engrossing & Cooney does a great job of pulling the listener in & pouring her heart into each character. I'm looking forward to continuing this series.

    I only have one complaint & its a frustrating thing about the narration that drove me a bit nuts. The main characters name is Ella-May, but the narrator often pronounced it as "allah-may" or some variation of that with a southern drawl. That in itself isn't a problem, it's the fact that one of the aunts are named Adalane, which was often pronounced "adah-lay." When the two of these characters were in one scene it's nearly impossible to tell who is talking as the narrator speaks quickly & sounds them out with a southern drawl and both their names come out sounding almost identical. Maybe it's just a pet peeve but I had to re listen to a few scenes to understand & it was really frustrating.

    "Overly Sweet"

    While I adore cozy mysteries and desserts of any kind, I found Pies and Prejudice a little too sweet and unrealistic to be entertaining.

    "Slow at the beginning"
    Would you listen to Pies and Prejudice again? Why?

    It was slow in the beginning, and I had a hard time reading- probably will NOT get the rest of the series.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    as expected.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no

    "No to the Narrator"

    It's a shame when a good-enough book gets a bad narrator. This book is a little overwritten with a sophomoric use of adjectives, but if you like magical mystery cozies, it's a fine read and a good start to a series. But the narrator gets in the way. It's clear that Cooney is unfamiliar with many of the words, and as a consequence she mispronounces them. Her accents are horrible, which is less her fault than it is the fault of the producer for hiring her. I finished the book but I won't be coming back to the series. It's the narrator who killed this series.

    "Very Sweet"
    What made the experience of listening to Pies and Prejudice the most enjoyable?

    The story kept me interested through the whole read. Never felt the desire to just skip over a part.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The aunts.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Probably. But I was driving cross country and had to stop occasionally.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this so much, I've already purchased the other four books in the series.
