What an easy, enjoyable read laced with the magic of family and hometown and enduring friendships. (Imagine the undercurrent of Sweet Home Alabama but with pie.)⠀⠀
Anna Kate returned to bury her beloved Granny Zee, owner of the Blackbird Café. She intends for it to be a quick trip home to Alabama before she begins medical school in the fall, but the ties that bind begin to unravel as they simultaneously grow stronger. Anna Kate learns about her own heritage and as a result, grows into the person she was always meant to be; the past making its impact on the future. (Are they ever not intricately and gloriously tied??) ⠀
This was a cozy, heart-warming book that could easily explode into an ongoing series. I enjoy reading a story touched with unexplained whimsy and magic. It makes me more aware of it in my own everyday life. ⠀
Also – because I try to be an authentic and all-in #bookstagrammer, I felt it was necessary to eat pie after finishing the book. I mean. I’m JUST that dedicated, folks.
