A Bakeshop Mystery
In Muffin But the Truth, Torte’s pastry chef and amateur sleuth Juliet Capshaw finds herself in deep water… in another delicious installment in the Bakeshop Series from author Ellie Alexander, set in Ashland, Oregon!
The spot? Ashland, Oregon. The place? Torte! The girl? Juliet Capshaw All caught up? This is the sixteenth installment of Alexander’s delicious series about a pastry chef/amateur sleuth, and owner of Torte, a magical place where you find all of your pastry desires and more. So, what has our girl gotten into now? Come on!
Shakespeare is the biggest thing around. So much charm and Elizabethan happenings and this time adventure enthusiasts are planning an entire weekend of winter activities. And picturesque Ashland is the place for all of that. This event is taking place on the Rogue River and how in the world are they going to turn out delicious goodies over a fire?
Turns out she needn’t have worried about the food as much as the attendees! Big city folks have just as many work issues as the rest of us and the event has barely begun when the bickering and drinking starts.
Hoping for a some calm, they hop in the boats to shoot the river. Until…and you knew there would be an until. A body is floating in the water. Dead. And now Jules must put on her detective hat and try to get to the bottom of what is going on before more bodies pop up.
I love a good cozy mystery and this one always has my mouth watering and my spidey senses tingleing. Who could have done the deed? And why? Work can be a killer!
Always a pleasure.
