Welcome back to Pie Town! This time in PIES BEFORE GUYS, a professor by the name of Michael Starke is found murdered right after he is accused of plagiarism. With his ties to Val’s employee, Abril, she and Charlene go out to solve what really happened. However, Val’s detective Carmichael doesn’t like it.
I like this series because it’s one of the few Cozy Mysteries out there that takes a more direct approach with its sleuthing. Once the murder occurs, Weiss sets the pace and Val and Charlene are out there. I really like that because it always pushes the book forward. I also noticed that Weiss doesn’t shy away from using certain terms in her books that are more professional. It makes it feel a bit more like a police procedural than a lighter Cozy Mystery, which is nice. So I definitely enjoyed the book because of that.
If you haven’t tried this series and are a fan of Thrillers, then maybe this one would be a good fit for you. It’s fast-paced and engaging, but still has the Cozy element that makes the genre so special.
