Bakeshop Mysteries, 1-3
Meet Your Baker, A Batter of Life and Death, On Thin Icing
Author: Ellie Alexander
Ellie Alexander's Bakeshop Mysteries will make readers hungry for baked goods with a side of murder. Here together for the first time are the first three books in the series.
Meet Your Baker
After returning to her hometown of Ashland, OR, Jules Capshaw helps heal her broken heart by working at Torte, the family bakeshop. But when the town busybody turns up dead in the store, Jules is drawn into a murder investigation between whipping up batches of her signature raspberry danishes.
A Batter of Life and Death
Autumn has come to Ashland, and Jules and her team at Torte are prepping for the arrival of the Pastry Channel, which has chosen their town to film the current season of their reality show Take the Cake. When one of the contestants turns up dead, face-down in buttercream, Jules takes his place. She dusts off her best Bavarian Chocolate Cake recipe and gets ready to bake—and solve a murder.
On Thin Icing
Jules and her team from Torte have been hired to cater the annual retreat for the directors of the Oregon Shakespeare festivals at a remote mountain resort. Visions of hearty stews and orange cardamom rolls dance in her head, and she can't wait to get started. Then someone puts the (very irritating) bartender on ice, and Jules has to pull double duty in the kitchen, and figuring out whodunit.
