Amateur sleuth Sloan Krause delves into the murderous political world in another delightful mystery from popular cozy writer Ellie Alexander.
It’s Christmastime and everyone is heading to Torte, the most cheerful bakery in town. There’s no place like home for the homicide…
Lights. Camera. Murder. . .It’s all in a day’s work for beer maven and amateur sleuth Sloan Krause in her latest hopping mystery.
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, everybody’s favorite small-town bakeshop. But what happens when it becomes the scene of a crime?
After discovering her husband in the arms of another woman, Sloan leaves the family business to work for a new brewery in town. Did I mention that every building in town looks like it belongs in the German mountains, and the town is known as Beervaria? When Sloan's ex is accused of murder, it's up to her to clear his name. I wasn't sure that beer brewing was something I cared about when I started Death on Tap, but the characters immediately sold me. It's just quirky enough, but not enough to be silly. Which is exactly what I love in my cozies. I love when they walk that line of whimsy. - John

Jules has returned to her hometown of Ashland, Oregon to help her mom run Torte, the town's beloved bakeshop. Before she can get back in the groove of life on land (her previous job was as a pastry chef on a cruise ship) one of Torte's customers is found murdered in the shop. What I loved most about this is how much of an amateur Jules is. She doesn't already have stellar investigation skills. Perfect for Joanne Fluke or Diane Mott Davidson fans! - John
