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

**MY REVIEW**
*5 GOLDEN STARS*

I've always loved cozy mysteries- they're extremely easy to get into, and yet somehow, always leave you shocked!

And Meet Your Baker was no exception- in fact, it is, by far, THE BEST book in this genre I've read so far.

So, the culinary delights, the recipes, and the protagonist- all BRILLIANT! I'm SUCH a foodie, and I loved how this book never lost track of that. Juliet's hometown sounds like an extremely picturesque place, and if I could, I would definitely visit- I LOVE small towns.

Okay, okay, I'm gushing.

But the book was REALLY good!

I have literally no minus points with it, and I'm salivating to walk into a bakery just like Torte and camp out there for the rest of my life.

Okay, I'm Stopping now. But seriously- READ IT!
