Penguin Putnam
All year round, retired schoolteacher Phyllis Newsom is as sweet as peach pie-except during the Peach Festival, whose blue ribbon has slipped through Phyllis's fingers more than once...

Everyone's a little shook up when the corpse of a no-good local turns up underneath a car in a local garage. But even as Phyllis engages in some amateur sleuthing, she won't let it distract her from out-baking her rivals and winning the upcoming Peach Festival contest.

She and all the other contestants guard their secret, original recipes with their lives-and talk a whole lot of trash. With her unusual Spicy Peach Cobbler, Phyllis hopes to knock 'em dead. But that's just an expression-never in her wildest dreams did she think her cobbler would actually kill a judge. Now, she's suspected of murder-and she's got to bake this case wide open.

Baker & Taylor

What a fun little mystery! I truly enjoyed this book. It's nice to read something with older people in it solving the mystery. The ending was a bit of a surprise too! Very enjoyable.

Really enjoyed this story. Held my interest from start to end. I liked the friends in the story especially since they are older and they are there for each other. This is my first book by this author and it will not be the last.
