The story takes place in a small town in Virginia. Our protagonist is Daisy McGovern who after her husband left her decided to convert the local diner into a bakery. She calls the bakery “Sweetie Pies.” Daisy’s best friend Brenda helps her achieve her goals.
While Brenda is baking in the kitchen of the bakery, three men enter to rob the store. Brenda manages to stab one of the robbers in self defense; the other two robbers take off with 90 pounds of cream cheese and crates. In the search for the identity of the dead man and catch the robbers the story takes us into the area of moonshine, gun slingers, and stolen historic maps.
The story is well written with a cast of colorful characters including eccentric mountain men. The book is also full of southern charm. The author adds a bit of humor to the story unfortunately the story drags a bit at times.
