This was a fast paced mystery, with Callie having to do an awful lot along with trying to solve the murder.

Secrets and Pies is a delightful cozy mystery and I enjoyed it very much…Having become fully invested in these characters, I hope for many more Callie’s Kitchen stories.

SECRETS AND PIES was a fast paced tale blessed with some of the most eclectic characters I’ve read in a cozy. The way author Kales describes her characters made me feel as though I was in the story with them.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews
I love so much about this book – theatre, old houses with secret areas, and especially the support of good friends. It is a delicious addition to the cozy mystery genre.
The story was well written and flowed really well. I also enjoyed the relationships among the characters.

One of the highlights of the story for me was how much I absolutely loved the settings! From the picturesque vacation spot of Crystal Bay to the mysterious Harris House, I was captivated by this community and can’t wait to visit again when I read more.

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of Callie’s Kitchen! Greek-American restaurateur Callie Costas faces down another killer in the small waterfront town of Crystal Bay, Wisconsin. Recipes included!
Summertime in Crystal Bay means tourist season for Calliope “Callie” Costas, owner of Callie’s Kitchen, a Greek-meets-Midwest from-scratch eatery. Business is booming but so is the stress. Callie can barely keep up with the demand for her famous summer fruit pies and savory Greek delicacies, plus she’s agreed to bake dozens of “pitas” for the annual Greek Fest.
When Callie is asked to deliver cast party treats for a Murder Mystery Night at the historic Harris House, it seems like a welcome break from her hot stove. That is, until she finds herself an unwilling player in yet another suspicious death. Worse yet, the victim is a family friend and graduate student working on a project involving Crystal Bay’s colorful past.
Before long, a motley crew of suspects makes things as juicy as the succulent berries strewn around Callie’s Kitchen. And that’s not all Callie’s got on her plate. Add family obligations, a deepening romance with a local detective and unexpected personnel problems to the mix. One thing’s for sure: Callie’s got the recipe for a long, hot summer!
SECRETS AND PIES is the third installment in the Callie’s Kitchen Mystery series.
Award-winning writer Jenny Kales is the author of The Callie’s Kitchen Mystery series. Though she’s worked as a writer and journalist for years, fiction writing is her first love and her marriage into a Greek-American Midwestern family inspired The Callie’s Kitchen mysteries, featuring Calliope Costas, food business owner and amateur sleuth. The setting of the story, “Crystal Bay,” is inspired by a favorite family vacation spot – Wisconsin’s beautiful Geneva Lakes. Kales is an avid reader, cook and baker and she’s addicted to mystery TV, especially anything on Masterpiece Mystery or BBC America. She lives just outside of Chicago with her husband, two daughters and one cute but demanding Yorkshire terrier.
