Ellery Adams serves up a mystery that’s a real peach...
Ella Mae LeFaye’s Charmed Pie Shoppe is wildly popular in Havenwood, Georgia—which is not surprising since Ella Mae can lace her baked goods with enchantments. The shop’s extraordinary success seems destined to continue when Ella Mae meets an engaged couple who hire her to handle the dessert buffet at their wedding.
But Ella Mae has a lot on her plate. She is also searching for the origin of her magical powers—and hoping to determine if the spark of attraction she feels for the handsome Hugh Dylan is authentic or just her new abilities gone awry.
Then Ella Mae discovers a high-standing member of the community dead, and a wedding guest becomes seriously ill at the event she’s catering. Now she’ll have to use all her sleuthing skills and culinary talents to prove her pies don’t contain a killer ingredient . . .

I couldn't turn my kindle pages fast enough! The love between Ella Mae and her aunts is truely heart-warming.The magic that Ellery Adams creates in this book is out of this world.

You will laugh, you will cry and you WILL love this story.If you haven't started reading this series, you are really missing out!
Awesome Ellery! YOU ROCKED IT AGAIN!!!!
Ellery Adams is one author that I purchase her books the day they are released. I enjoyed her writing very much as she is a very good story teller and is very imaginative. As a reader, I am transported along into the story which doesn't happen in all books. I am a fan of her Mystery By the Bay series too.
In Peach, Pies and Alibis, Ella Mae becomes more aware of her magical powers and is inducted into a whole new magical world. She learns that all is not what it seems on the surface. In Pies and Prejudice, the first book in the series, Ella Mae realizes that she has the ability to produce enchanted pies. In Peach, Pies and Alibis however, the entire book is now devoted to the magical story.
This book is one that is difficult to give some information on the plot because I don't want to give anything away. So will say if you like some magic along with your mysteries, you will probably love this book. If you like an imaginative mystery that you don't know quite...
Excuse me while I gush a minute... I love the world of Havenwood that Ellery Adams has created and every single one of her characters is fantastic. She fills each book with warmth and humor, and still manages to ground the magical elements within satisfying human conflicts. The "Charmed Pie Shoppe Mysteries" do follow traditional cozy mysteries standards, but Ellery has also written a world-building treatment that is more likely to be found in fantasy novels. This series would be great for paranormal readers that want to put a toe into the mystery pool, but I would tell any reader to give them a try. Reading these books feels like coming home to good friends and family and I look forward to every visit we can get.
Peach Pies and Alibis picks up right after Pies and Prejudice. Ella Mae LeFaye is running her hugely successful pie shoppe while facing the mystery of her magical background and the uncertainty that exists between herself and hunky fireman Hugh...
