The San Nicholas Pumpking Festival

This Halloween, pie shop proprietor Val Harris must patch together clues to solve a murder by pumpkin . . .

As the owner of Pie Town, Val’s been tapped to judge the pie making contest at the annual pumpkin festival in the coastal California town of San Nicholas.

But Val’s got bigger problems when she and her flaky piecrust-maker Charlene discover another contestant crushed under an enormous pumpkin.

But as they dodge lethal pumpkin cannons and follow the clues into a figurative and literal maze, the pie pals are in for the scariest Halloween of their lives—and maybe their last . . .

r lives—and maybe their last . . .
