A slice of southern charm and murder à la mode. A deliciously dangerous series from USA Today bestselling author A. GARDNER!
A sudden midlife crisis leads Poppy across the country to a charming, yet deadly, pastry school in the heart of southern Georgia. Gathering the courage to follow in her grandmother’s footsteps, Poppy tosses her fear of carbs and soggy pastry bottoms aside and dives head first into learning the art of pastry.
But she has her work cut out for her not only fitting in with her charming (and not-so-charming) classmates, but also proving her worth to her instructors after her first publicly humiliating attempt at making the school’s famous peach pie. And that’s not all. Amongst her peers lies a thief. . .and a murderer. If Poppy is going to survive her culinary experience, she ‘ll have to prove her innocence all while honing her baking skills to compete in the school’s dessert competition for a coveted overseas internship.
Can Poppy prove she’s one tough cookie? Or is her life about to crumble?
