This is the 14th book in the Lexy Baker series by Leighann Dobbs.
Who would think a pie eating contest could wind up with a dead body being found by Lexy Baker and her assistant Cassie.
This is the first full catering job being done by Cup and Cake. This one is for the Brook Ridge Falls Senior Center's Book Club.
As Lexy and Cassie are checking the pie room to make sure everything is set to go for the .pie eating contest the find a body slumped over with her face in a blueberry pie. As Lexy touches her to see if she is still alive, she falls to the floor. Beside her is the trophy that was to be given to the winner of the contest along with a signed book by Chandler Bennington.
Lexy and Cassie secure the room. Lexy notifies her husband, Jack Perillo, a local detective and announces to the club that the contest is cancelled due to the death of Mary Archer.
This news sets the Ladies Detective Club on full alert. These ladies include Lexy's grandmother, Nans (Mona Baker), and her friends, Ida, Helen and Ruth.
There is no end to the number of suspects after the coroner announces Mary was killed by being hit with the trophy. The ladies begin their questioning with the husband, Howard Archer and move on from there to others who attended the event.
This cozy mystery is a must read. It includes humor, mystery and wonderful characters. Leighann keeps you guessing until the end for the killer.
