A Beautiful Story!
Ella Mae has a lot on her plate with running her very successful Charmed Pie Shoppe but has decided to add a little catering to the mix. Her first job is a dessert buffet at a wedding. Things are going well until right after the couple ride away on horseback the bride’s stepmother is rushed to the hospital where she slips into a coma. This on the tails of a prominent member of the community has died. Ella Mae is afraid these two things may be related.
Ella Mae is also trying to understand her enchanted gift and wants to know the origin of her magical powers. She also needs to know if the attraction she feels for Hugh is true.  She needs to get her divorce finalized and then see if she can have a future with the guy she has loved since middle school.
Peach Pies and Alibis is a very unique story that will have you enthralled from the first page to the last.
In her search to understand her powers Ella Mae’s journey takes the reader on a magical ride. From her mother’s beautiful gardens to a very special place for those that are charmed. I felt like I was on Ella Mae’s shoulder with a bird’s eye view watching the entire story take place. Ellery Adams has the gift to suspend time as her readers almost descend right into the book for an amazing trip that takes us beyond Havenwood. I was most definitely captivating by her words. The way she weaves this mystery with the mystery of finding the killer is flawless.
The characters are wonderful including the lovable Jack Russell terrier, Charleston Chew (Chewy). Ella’s aunts and mother, each with their distinct charms, are extraordinary characters. Loralyn and her family are the Havenwood residents that must be endured by Ella Mae and her family but they add the strife every good cozy needs. Hugh Dylan brings the romantic tension and sparks actually fly. Mr. & Mrs. Caswell even make a cameo appearance. The Shepard’s pie was delicious!
This story get my highest recommendation! If I could I would award it much more than 5 stars!!  I know this is going to be on my 2013 favorites list!!

Okay

I was a tad disappointed by this book. I really enjoyed the first book in the series, but this one (the 2nd) was differently written. For example, it mentions "powers" that Elle Mae and her Aunts have, but does not specify what they are.
