Review of Magic, Lies and Deadly Pies by Misha Pop

Cozy Mystery

Daisy makes pies to earn a living. She also makes pies to help out women who have been abused in some fashion. Both sets of pies use magic but the pies for the women who need help have a touch of murder magic added to them.
Daisy is a noble character, only wanting to kill those who deserve to be killed. She contacts women in a secret way but when she is contacted by a presumed man to kill three different women, Daisy is in trouble.
Added in to the plot is a man and a woman who are both vying for Daisy’s attentions. Daisy is also entered in to a pie contest that has a large financial prize that she wants to win.
I love paranormal books. Witchy books are one of my favorites. When I saw this one, I jumped at the chance to listen to it. I did have some reservations because the premise has the main character as a murderer. The plot itself was done well, with no one being murdered throughout the book. (They did talk about it happening in the past but it didn’t actually happen during the book.)
Overall, I enjoyed the book and look forward to more in this series. The ending was done well where a solution fit the need and not necessarily what you were expecting..
As mentioned above, I listened to the audio book. The narrator did a superb job in their performance. Different voices were used for different characters and tone and inflection were used to underline meaning throughout.
Many thanks to Net Galley for providing me with an ARC of this audio book.
