Praise for Magic, Lies, and Deadly Pies:
“Darkly humorous . . . Cozy readers looking for something different will find much to like.”
Publishers Weekly

“An exciting debut that has you rooting for a morally conflicted witch while salivating over her pies.”

“The rapid pacing and tantalizing plot will keep [readers] engrossed in this strong debut.”

“Wickedly funny and wonderfully twisted.”

“Utterly original . . . a deliciously charming story filled with female empowerment, humor, women helping women, and lots of tasty pies.”
San Francisco Book Review, 5-star review

“Introducing unique and original protagonist . . . unabashed fun on the printed page.”
Midwest Book Review

“Well written and intriguing.”
Gumshoe Review

“Magical, decadent, and addicting! Magic, Lies, and Deadly Pies is a breath of fresh air, and Daisy Ellery is a heroine worth rooting for. Honey Crunch Apple pie is my new favorite thing!”
—Melissa Bourbon, national bestselling author of the Magical Dressmaking mysteries

“Take a cup of Promising Young Woman, stir in a tablespoon of Like Water for Chocolate, add a dash of Arsenic and Old Lace, then bake with knife-edge wit and keen dialog and you get Misha Popp’s darkly funny whodunit. Revenge fantasy meets magical realism meets edgy culinary cozy. Magic, Lies, and Deadly Pies gives new meaning to ‘dessert to die for.’”
—Alexia Gordon, award-winning author of The Gethsemane Brown Mysteries

“Daisy Ellery puts a little vinegar in her pie crusts, and Misha Popp has added a drop to her cozy debut. Magic, Lies, and Deadly Pies is as sassy as it’s sweet and as fierce as it’s fun. Add a clever plot and a budding romance and this series opener is a slice of heaven. Seconds, please!”
—Catriona McPherson, multi-award-winning author of the Last Ditch Motel mysteries

“I DEVOURED it! There is nothing conventional about Misha Popp’s flavorful debut. Sparkling with sinister magic, sugary pies, and vigilante homicide, Magic, Lies, and Poison Pies is rocking the Pushing Daisies vibe. When an avenging pie-maker’s secrets are threatened, it’s going to take more than magic and vintage swing dresses to circumvent a messy recipe for disaster. With inclusive characters, sharp pacing, and a dark sense of humor, Misha Popp is one of my new favorite authors.”
—Olivia Blacke, author of the Brooklyn Murder mysteries
