One Poison Pie Book Review

Title: One Poison Pie
Author: Lynn Cahoon
Published: January 26, 2021, Kensington
No. of Pages: 274
Cover Price: $.99 Kindle

In the first official novel in the Kitchen Witch series, Mia Malone, protagonist, has been dumped by her fiancé and decides to move to Magic Springs, Idaho where her grandmother lives, and where magic is a ordinary way of life for many of the residents. Lynn Cahoon re-introduces the main characters in the first novel in the series, One Poison Pie (they are also introduced in a small novella, Chili Cauldron Curse). Mia decides to start her own food business, Mia’s Morsels, and at her first catering job discovers the body of her client. Since she is a suspect, she must investigate the murder and find the real murderer.

Mia and Grans are both very likeable characters, and they are well-developed. It’s fun for readers to relate to characters who accept witchcraft as an everyday occurrence. Cahoon adds supporting characters to each new novel, and they are believable. Cahoon’s storytelling abilities are very good, and this novel is fun to read and easy to follow.

Culinary mysteries usually include at least one recipe, and this one is no exception. Since there are dozens of references to food, it would be nice if there were more. This is a fun series, and this novel is suitable for all ages of culinary mystery lovers. There is no blatant sex, violence, or language, which is the standard for cozy mysteries, and this is a great way to read about Mia Malone who is a great character for all of us who wish we have a few magical powers.
