Till Death Do Us Tart, by Ellie Alexander

Starting a new book from this series always feels like getting together with an old friend. No matter how long it has been since you’ve last talked, you can pick right up again in a comfortable and connected way. I would love to one day see if the real life Ashland, Oregon, is as cozy, warm, and inviting as Ellie Alexander paints it in her Bakeshop Mysteries!

Till Death Do Us Tart is the eighth book in this series and the whole town is secretly abuzz. Jules and the team at Torte are deep in clandestine plans to throw a Shakespeare inspired wedding for Jules’ mom and The Professor. But there are a few other things on Jules’ mind, too. First, her estranged husband, Carlos, is due back in town. Their relationship is one that Jules has yet to fully sort out–not to mention that this visit will be the first time she’ll meet her husband’s son. Second, her BFF Lance has been MIA for days. When he does return, he reveals some very surprising details about his life, his family, and his fear that someone is trying to kill his father. Finally, the Torte bakeshop is undergoing serious expansions and renovations–two words that would strike fear and anxiety into the hearts of any small business owner!

As always, Ellie Alexander weaves together the various threads of characters, plot, and twists into quite an enjoyable read. Her stories never disappoint–and the recipes always leave me wanting more!
