Welcome to Torte-a small-town family bakeshop where the treats are killer good.

It's the dead of winter in the sleepy town of Ashland, which means no tourists-and fewer customers-for Jules Capshaw and her bakery. But when she's asked to cater an off-season retreat for the directors of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, business starts heating up...until Jules finds a dead body in the freezer.

"An intriguing new series."- Reader to Reader

Someone at the retreat has apparently iced the bartender, a well-known flirt with a legendary temper-that is, before a killer beat him to the punch. Then, from out of nowhere, Jules's own ex-husband shows up at the shop-and soon becomes a suspect. With accusations piling up higher than the snow-and thicker than a chocolate mousse cake-Jules has to think outside the (recipe) box to find the real culprit...and make sure he gets his just desserts.

"A delectable tale of murder and intrigue."- Portland Book Review on Meet Your Baker

I am afraid that I can't recommend this book unless you are looking for a Very, Very lite and cozy read. The author couldn't decide what the plot of this book was supposed to be-- a mystery?, a love story?, or a novel about being a chef. And at the end of the book you have the heroine doing what we all hate in movies, going to where the killer is!! What is especially bad she knows there are cops all over the place, and if she stayed in the lodge the cops would come to her.

A wonderful mystery with a dramatic flair.

Great cozy mystery series! (This must be the season for authors to be inspired to setting their series in alternate locations, as this was the 3rd cozy in a row where the main character was temporarily visiting or working & solving a mystery in a different location, so some of the supporting characters are missing.)
