At the start of the book, we learn about the death of Polly Portman, the town's famous pie baker and Alice's cherished aunt. Then the mystery begins. Who is trying to steal Polly's award-winning pie crust recipes, and to what lengths will they go? While trying to solve the mystery, Alice makes a friend, comes to see the love her town had for Aunt Polly, and learns to be herself.
Oh, and she'll solve the mystery, too.
This is a sweet book with an exciting twist.
One extra fun thing is that each chapter begins with a pie recipe. I think I'll be baking a lot over the next few weeks!
