My Thoughts 

Daisy has generationally gifted magic that presents differently in each woman to possess it. Daisy bakes pies, Daisy bakes special pies with happy magic,  Daisy also bakes specialty murder pies for deserving men for whom there are no “stop” options. The murder pies, however, don’t really come into play in this one. 

The second title in the Pies Before Guys series, I was so happy to receive an advance copy of this. 

Okay, I enjoyed the baking show group aspect of this. However, I found that there were so many characters, I had a little trouble keeping track of who was who. Regardless, I still found this to be a fun and solid cozy that is laugh out loud funny in parts. It held my attention and kept me reading. 

I am absolutely looking forward to upcoming Pies Before Guys stories. 

* While this feasibly could be read as a standalone, after reading both, I personally wouldn’t suggest it. Recommended, but after reading Magic, Lies, and Deadly Pies

Thank you to Crooked Lane Books and NetGalley for the DRC!


Competitive baking takes a murderous turn in Misha Popp’s “decadent and addicting” (Melissa Bourbon) second Pies Before Guys cozy mystery—oven-ready for fans of Ellery Adams and Mary Maxwell.

Everyone loves a good pie. But how about a pie that’s as deadly as it is delectable?
Daisy bakes a little murder into every pie she creates, and she and her dog, Zoe, deliver them to the town’s worst cads. Now, Daisy’s entered a televised, elimination-style competition and has a shot at $100k in prize money—but she still has a murder pie to deliver between filming.
In a completely unexpected turn of events, she discovers that her intended victim is one of the competition judges, and he turns up dead before the pie even arrives. Now, Daisy has to solve the murder—even if it means working a bit of magic—before someone calls foul play and exposes her murderous secret.
For anyone who’s ever fantasized about the world of competitive baking 
à la the Great British Bake Off—or has ever dreamed ofgetting back at that guy who wronged them years ago Popp's culinary cozy series is as alluring as a perfectly baked pie, this edgy yet utterly charming novel takes the idea of “a dessert to die for” to a whole new level.
