Tanya Eby delivers a sweet treat in this delightful new audiobook mystery series from Misha Popp. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Sandi Henschel discuss Magic, Lies, and Deadly Pies, the tale of Daisy, a pie-baking, vigilante, serial-killer-witch who bakes up “murder pies” to settle scores for women who have abusive men in their lives. Daisy, a most unusual heroine, confesses, “The first time I killed a man with a pie, it was an accident. But only the first.” Eby’s Daisy is upbeat and warmhearted, and her quirky and engaging performance makes Daisy’s questionable moral compass unquestionably digestible.
