I have had Pies and Prejudice by Ellery Adams on my cozy TBR list for quite a while. I found a copy at my local independent book shop, Booktrader of Hamilton.
I really liked this book! I read a lot of cozies and I will say many fall into the very light, fun read category. This is fun and it is certainly cozy, no blood or gore here, but the writing has much more depth to it than the average cozy. The use of metaphors and just the nature of the descriptive language goes far beyond the average cozy. Excellent writing. The main character, Ella Mae, is strong and independent as are the rest of her a family, a group of strong southern women. The setting is well defined and enchanting. The mystery plot develops at a nice pace, not rushed but also it doesn’t drag. The magical element is not overwhelming, just a touch a magic :), which is how I prefer it.
