Teaser Tuesday 293: Pecan Pies and Homicides

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current book or recent read.
* Share a few "teaser" sentences from somewhere in the book.
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away. You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

This week’s teaser comes from Pecan Pies and Homicides by Ellery Adams, book 3 in her Charmed Pie Shoppe series.

Ignoring the pain in her right arm, Ella Mae took the knife in both hands and held it out in front of her. Just as the beast moved to strike, she jerked to the side and plunged the knife down through the scaly hide of its shoulder.

(Chapter 15)

Series: Charmed Pie Shoppe #3

Owning the Charmed Pie Shoppe and serving enchanted treats in the magical town of Havenwood, Georgia, seemed like a little slice of heaven for Ella Mae LeFaye. But now her hopes for both a lasting romance with Hugh Dylan and business success are starting to seem like pie in the sky, and Ella’s left wondering: Where has the magic gone?

When an enchanted grove is set ablaze, Ella realizes she has more grave problems. With her magic waning, she’s going to have to sleuth from scratch to stop an arsonist who has no respect for sacred ground—or human life . . .
