Pie by Sarah Weeks
Warm, heartfelt, funny book. Alice's beloved Aunt Polly passes away, along with her secret to making the best pie crust in the nation. Instead of leaving the recipe to her niece, as everyone thought she would, she left it to her cantankerous cat, Lardo. Now Lardo is missing, the pie shop has been ransacked, and Alice and her friend can only think that someone will go to no ends to get their paws on that recipe. At the beginning of each chapter there are pie recipes...so much wish I knew how to bake!
