From my friend C.L. on the Facebook: “My thoughts and prayers are with Jennifer Stanley aka Ellery Adams. She lost her sister-in-law to complications following a C-section earlier today. She is a great writer and this is the first in her new Charmed Pie Shoppe Mystery series. She will be too busy with family to promote her new book, so her friends are trying to get the word out. You can help by asking for it at your local library or ordering from your favorite book store.”
Here’s the official description for Pies and Prejudice: “When the going gets tough, Ella Mae LaFaye bakes pies. So when she catches her husband cheating in New York, she heads back home to Havenwood, Georgia, where she can drown her sorrows in fresh fruit filling and flakey crust. But her pies aren’t just delicious. They’re having magical effects on the people who eat them–and the public is hungry for more.
“Discovering her hidden talent for enchantment, Ella Mae makes her own wish come true by opening the Charmed Pie Shoppe. But with her old nemesis Loralyn Gaynor making trouble, and her old crush Hugh Dylan making nice, she has more than pie on her plate. and when Loralyn’s fiancé is found dead–killed with Ella Mae’s rolling pin–it’ll take all her sweet magic to clear her name.”
Bio from her website: “Ellery Adams grew up on a beach near the Long Island Sound. Having spent her adult life in a series of landlocked towns, she cherishes her memories of open water, violent storms, and the smell of the sea. Ms. Adams has held many jobs including caterer, retail clerk, car salesperson, teacher, tutor, and tech writer, all the while penning poems, children’s books, and novels. She now writes full-time from her home in Virginia.”

From the author, K.M. Soehnlein: ROBIN AND RUBY updates the story of the brother and sister of THE WORLD OF NORMAL BOYS. I wrote that novel over 10 years ago with no plans to write a sequel. But I never really let go of the characters. You don’t have to have read the first novel to get into this one — it’s set during the summer of 1985 — St. Elmo’s Fire, Live Aid, the first HIV tests — and it takes place in Philadelphia and on the Jersey Shore (in the same town as that trainwreck of a reality show).
Robin is now a theater major with a knack for drama; Ruby, his younger sister, has emerged from her God Squad days as a kind of New Wave atheist. They’re both ending relationships and starting new ones. There’s sex and romance and alcohol and cocaine — it’s the ’80s after all — but it’s also about that moment in your early 20s when you realize the decisions are all yours to make, and no one else will solve your problems for you.
