{Blog Tour} MEET YOUR BAKER by Ellie Alexander








Welcome to my blog tour stop for Meet Your Baker by Ellie Alexander. This is a cozy mystery that released December 30th.

About MEET YOUR BAKER:

Welcome to Torte—a friendly, small-town family bake shop where the treats are so good that, sometimes, it’s criminal…

After graduating from culinary school, Juliet Capshaw returns to her quaint hometown of Ashland, Oregon, to heal a broken heart and help her mom at the family bakery. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival is bringing in lots of tourists looking for some crumpets to go with their heroic couplets. But when one of Torte’s customers turns up dead, there’s much ado about murder…



"Sure to satisfy both dedicated foodies and ardent mystery lovers alike."
―Jessie Crockett, author of Drizzled with Death

The victim is Nancy Hudson, the festival’s newest board member. A modern-day Lady Macbeth, Nancy has given more than a few actors and artists enough reasons to kill her…but still. The silver lining? Jules’s high school sweetheart, Thomas, is the investigator on the case. His flirtations are as delicious as ever, and Jules can’t help but want to have her cake and eat it too. But will she have her just desserts? Murder might be bad for business, but love is the sweetest treat of all…

"Alexander weaves a tasty tale of deceit, family ties, delicious pastries, and murder.” ―Edith Maxwell, author of A Tine to Live, A Tine to Die

 Disclaimer: Received this book in exchange for an honest review for this tour. No compensation has been offered and it definitely would not have been accepted.

This cozy, small town mystery will make you drool and desire coffee in the STRONGEST way imaginable. I kept getting coffee and pastries. I'm glad I'm a fast reader or I would've gained 30 lbs! And thankfully this book keeps you hooked to the story so you don't want to take too many breaks away from it.

I totally found myself bonding with Juliet as she worries over her mom, her mom's generous spirit, the evil competitor, who committed the murder, who she can trust, and the matters of the heart. All whipped up with delicious descriptions of puddings and pastries and turkey & fig sandwiches, this book was a fun, delicious read that left me hungry for more!
