Coming in September 2013 - Plum Deadly
Pie in the Sky Mysteries are set in Durham, NC near the Duke University Campus
In this cozy mystery, a young woman is framed by her boss for embezzlement and flees to her aunt’s pie shop—but when her ex-boss turns up dead on their doorstep she must start her own investigation to find the killer—before he finds her. When Maggie Grady went back to North Carolina after being accused of stealing from her workplace, she never expected her ex-boss Louis to walk through the door of her aunt’s pie shop and tell her that he knew the truth about her situation—that someone framed her and he’d helped. But before Louis could set things straight in a press conference, he turns up dead on the doorstep of Pie in the Sky. Not only is Maggie’s secret about why she left the big city out, but now she and her aunt are suspects in Louis’s murder. With the help of Ryan, a hunky journalist, Maggie tries to figure out who set her up and killed Louis. But just as she and Ryan get closer to the truth, the killer steps up his game…
Ellie Grant gets help writing from her cat, Quincy, and her big puppy, Rudi, who she rescued in 2010. She loves writing mysteries but is at home with fantasy, romance, and nonfiction.
