Pistols & Pies (Sweet Bites Mysteries) byHeather Justesen

The gigantic cake for the new city rec center opening is going to be great advertising for Tess's new bakery, until she finds the city councilman who oversaw the project dead. Tess vows to stay out of this one, until his troubled teenaged step-son is fingered for the murder and Tess jumps in to prove he's innocent. Trouble is, someone else wants her to leave it alone, and isn't afraid to take her out to protect their identity.

Tess and her growing gang of amateur sleuths have to scramble to catch the killer before one of them ends up dead.

My Review: Pistols & Pies
4 stars ebook & audio book

I had won audio book from Heather Justesen. It down loaded easy on my kindle fire. I liked the story and the reader very well.
Did not like when I wanted to hurry and finish the book I could not. It was great to listen to book while I got things done.
After the second day I broke down and bought the ebook to finish.(I am a fast reader)

So I would rather buy ebook for my kindle fire and use text to talk feature when I want to listen to book and than switch to reading when I want to.

Pistols & Pies is the second book in the Sweet Bites Mysteries series. It is the first one I have read. It is a cute cozy mystery.
I like the plot, the characters, the setting. Also like that it is a clean read. Did make me want to eat sweets.

I don't like all the recipes that distract from the story. I would rather have them all in the back of the book or front instead of at chapters.

I Tess and wanted her to date Jack. but like Shawn to. Tess runs a bakery and makes wedding cakes. She left Chicago to come to small town where her Grandmother used to live to open her business. She finds dead bodies and gets involved in figuring who the murder is.
Now someone is trying to kill her.

Her co-worker from Chicago has left his job to come work part time for her.

The mystery was pretty good. I did figure out a part of it before it was revealed. But not all of it. Lots of action, drama and romance.

I would read more of Heather's stories in the future.
