Ellie Alexander's Live and Let Pie is the most
delicious installment yet in the fantastic Bakeshop
Mysteries set in Ashland, OR!
Life is sweet once you step into Torte, everybodyâ€™s
favorite small-town bakeshop. But what happens when it
becomes the scene of a crime?
The heat is on for pastry chef, family business operator,
and unlikely sleuth Jules Capshaw. Just when she thought she
could enjoy some time away from the kitchen, Jules manages
to discover a skull during a picnic by the lake. As if
unearthing remains that may be connected to a
missing-persons case from the 1960s isnâ€™t enough on her
plate, Jules must contend with the unsolved matter of her
own marriage while her estranged husband Carlos sails the
open seas, awaiting a verdict. Then thereâ€™s Julesâ€™s bitter
landlord Edgar, who is intent on making a sweet deal on a
vacant lot down the block from Torteâ€”until he turns up dead.
If only Jules could find a recipe that would let her bake
her cake and eat it, tooâ€¦
