Georgia Oman, "Pumpkin Scones"

Patricia, the grande dame of baking, has evidently been sabotaging fellow bakers and gardeners and when she realizes that Evelyn stands in her way of the presidency of the local baking institution, Patricia feeds Evelyn poisoned pumpkin scones. And, while the two ladies are having tea and scones, Arthur, Patricia's husband, is knee-deep in digging a hole. What a fun story, macabre and sinister, without
gratuitous violence.

"Pumpkin Scones" is in The Curious Issue of Popshot Magazine, issue 14, 2015.
