I want to give a huge thank you to Kensington Books and NetGalley for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review.
Synopsis: Val Harris owns her own pie shop called Pie Town that is cozy and has a vintage setup. Pie Town is a small business that attracts locals and tourists.

Charlene is in her 70’s, a conspiracy theorist, wears a supposed narcoleptic and deaf cat around her neck and has the mindset of a teenager. Val is still battling from her new breakup with her ex fiance and has devoted all of her time in Pie Town. Together Val and Charlene start investigating Joe’s murder and so much adventure awaits. Will these ladies solve Joe’s murder? Can they save Pie Town? Read The Quiche and the Dead by Kirsten Weiss to find out!
Review: I give The Quiche and the Dead 5 out of 5 awesome stars! This was the perfect cozy for me. This book was full of adventure, humor, mystery and friendship. I loved both of the main heroines in this story. I really enjoyed Charlene’s character, she was a hoot! Charlene is what I want to be when I grow old! She reminded me of Grandma Mazur from the Stephanie Plum series but she had her own special wildness to her. This book made me laugh, smile and was just what the doctor ordered to lighten my mood. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good cozy mystery, you won’t be disappointed!
