From #1 bestselling culinary cozy mystery author A. Gardner comes another Poppy Peters adventure...

Reluctant sleuth Poppy Peters is back in Georgia, and her last semester of pastry school is no icing on the cake when a body is discovered at the local farmer's market, and the murder weapon has Poppy's name on it. Not to mention, the victim belonged to a deadly southern crime family. Now, Poppy is being tailed by the mafia, and it doesn't help that the school's new pastry instructor has her working with her worst rival. But after a heart-stopping car chase, a frightening discovery at an old jam factory, and a spontaneous trip to New Orleans, Poppy discovers a secret that makes her past feats look like a piece of peach pie. Poppy's chances of making it to graduation day are about to go up in flames just like her Bananas Foster.

"I defy anyone to read this and not want a piece of pie. This is a book that can probably be finished in one sitting which is a good thing, because it will give you time to try your hand at something to satisfy those cravings. I do know that I plan to bring fresh baked cookies and a glass of milk with me when I read the next book in this series."
- Madderly Review

"One of the best perks of summer is eating a warm slice of Georgia peach pie. Throw in a murder and you've got the makings of a juicy cozy mystery. Southern Peach Pie and a Dead Guy: A Poppy Peters Mystery by debut author A. Gardner is a delicious e-book."
