Never Say Pie by Carol Culver

A Food Critic’s Review to Die For 

Everyone’s trying the food fair serrated knife, perfect for slicing, serving, and . . . murder? 

Hanna Denton has a lot to prove after taking over The Upper Crust, her grandmother’s California pie shop. And the Crystal Cove Food Fair is the perfect place to entice new customers. When local food critic Heath Barr serves up detestable reviews of Hanna’s pies—not to mention his burning comments about other vendors, too—she’s outraged, but she never imagined he’d be murdered. Now Hanna is drawing the worst kind of  attention from police chief Sam Genovese, her former high school flame. Can she work through the doughy mess and discover the true killer, or will Hanna do all her future baking behind bars?

Includes scrumptious recipes you’ll love, from Double Chocolate Cream Pie to Butterscotch Pecan Pie.

....and I really tried to muddle thru this one but I couldn't do it. Gave up on this story halfway thru. The main character owns her grandma's pie shop and is trying to get more involved in the community so she sells her pies on the weekends at the farmers market. This is a good setting but we are hardly there. The main character wanders around visiting other vendors and all she can talk about is past history with someone or how attractive they are. Really? Then she is obsessed with what the town sherriff Sam thinks of her. What would Sam think? Will Sam be mad at me if I intefere in his investigation of murder? sam, sam, sam.....ugh ....enough! who cares. not this reader. The author is too distracted to put the story together in this one. We get a murdered man that no one knows what he looks like but is nasty on the phone? what? We have a market full of suspects since the murder weapon is passed out to every vendor. But none of these ideas go forward. What is this author doing with this story? I just finally got fed up and closed the book on this one...I'm done. I won't be reading any more by this author.

This book picked up real quick when local pie maker Hanna and a bunch of local of folks of different abilities, a cupcake maker, a chicken grower, meat grower and cheese maker to say the least are all ripped apart by Heath Barr a local food critic, there are so many suspects and finding out who did it will take a lot of detective work. Many people were hurt by the local critic’s opinion of their work. Was it the local merchants who were insulted? Or someone who paid off the food critic? Many possibilities. Add to the mix Hanna’s relationship with the local chief of police. Hanna finds herself in hot water everything from a toss into a pool, to breaking and entering, what’s a girl to do? This was a great new mystery series that I definitely will be following. Can’t wait to see what Ms. Culver bakes up next!
