About Magic, Lies, and Deadly Pies

Daisy is a twenty-something, living in an RV with her adorable dog, Zoe. Daisy’s known as Pie Girl because she bakes pies for the local diner plus drives her RV to the local university and events selling cutie pies – hand-sized bits of pastry full of deliciousness. Along with something special.

Daisy has the ability to bake things like energy or happiness into her pies. She can also bake revenge into them. She secretly helps abused women by crafting deadly pies for them to feed to their abusers. Until someone starts blackmailing her, threatening to out her deadly pies and the women she’s helped.

My thoughts about Magic, Lies, and Deadly Pies

For all that this is about deadly secrets and revenge pies, the book has a cozy, even gentle feel. Lots of autumn vibes, especially when Daisy is at the local farmers market or a local apple orchard.

About Misha Popp

Misha Popp (she/her) enjoys writing about murdery women and over-the-top baked goods, but not so much about herself. She lives in rural Massachusetts where she bakes entirely too many pies and sculpts things out of chocolate. An unrepentant school nerd, she has a collection of degrees that have nothing to do with the jobs that pay her.
