Pie Town NovelPie Town
by Lynne Hinton

From the author: “PIE TOWN is a story that seems to bring together all of my styles of writing. There’s a mystery, an unexpected friendship, a call for community, and a bit of mysticism. There is also a real sense of “place” in this story as New Mexico is a captivating and “enchanted” land. I look forward to this publication and will have more information as we get closer to the release date.”

This novel includes the Pie-O-Neer’s pecan pie recipe and, as you may suspect, a story that will sound familiar to anyone who knows Pie Town well.
