Mother Mabel's Pie Auction and Contest is always fraught, but usually not murderous--until the pie bakers and contest organizers land in the tiny town of Mynute, Alaska, and mayhem ensues.  Legendary Julia Lyle has won 4 years in a row--will she win again?  What about young Eve Simone, and her ex-boyfriend, Roger Marble, with their delicious pies?  And will missing professional Betty Botter ever show up?  Look forward to lots of food puns, laughs, and twists and turns of plot, at “Murder at the Pie Auction.”
