The Curse of the Cherry Pie
by Amy Patricia Meade
A sharp and tangy culinary mystery featuring Tish Tarragon. Can Tish beat the curse of the cherry pie to win first prize at the Virginia Commonwealth Bake-Off?
When literary caterer Letitia ‘Tish’ Tarragon’s friend and star baker at Cookin’ the Books cafe, Celestine Rufus, pulls out of the prestigious Virginia Commonwealth Bake-Off, an anxious Tish reluctantly takes her place. Will her signature bake, a frangipane cherry pie, be up to the grade?
As the bake-off gets underway, Tish’s worries increase when she learns that two contestants from the previous two competitions also had cherry pies on their menus . . . and both women died suddenly before making their bakes.
Amid bitter rivalries, simmering jealousy and the bakers’ insatiable appetite for winning, is the curse of the cherry pie about to strike again?
