A Crime of Passion Fruit
A Crime of Passion Fruit | Ellie Alexander
11 posts | 7 read | 6 to read
Torteeverybodys favorite small-town family bakeshopis headed for the high seas, where murder is about to make a splash. . . Jules Capshaw is trying to keep her cool as Torte gets set to make its transformation from quaint, local confectionary caf to royal pastry palace. Meanwhile, Juless estranged husband Carlos is making a desperate plea for her to come aboard his cruise ship and dazzle everyone with her signature sweets. She may be skeptical about returning to her former nautical life with Carlos but Jules cant resist an all-expense-paid trip, either. If only she knew that a dead body would find its way onto the itinerary . . A warm and inviting atmosphere, friendly and likable main characters, and a nasty murder mystery to solve! Fresh Fiction Now, instead of enjoying tropical drinks on deck between whipping up batches of sea-salted chocolates and flambing fresh pineapple slices in the kitchen, Jules is plunged into dangerous waters. Her investigation leaves her with more questions than answers: Why cant anyone on board identify the young woman? And how can she help Carlos keep passengers at ease with a killer in their midst? Jules feels like shes ready to jump ship. Can she solve this case without getting in too deep? A perfect mix for fans of Jenn McKinlay, Leslie Budewitz, or Jessica Beck. Library Journal

So I popped into my local thrift store to discover a shelf full of cozy mysteries in perfect condition for only $1 each! Needless to say I bought 12 plus 2 other books I couldn‘t resist 😉😄 #cozymystery #bookhaul

Perfect weather to pick up "A Crime of Passion Fruit" again! (The only thing that would make it better would be a fun, tropical drink!) #acrimeofpassionfruit #elliealexander #bakeshopmysteries #julescapshaw #foodiemysteries #cozymysteries

Been a crazy week so this was a slower read for me but I enjoyed it all the same. The new location was fun but I missed some of the characters who stayed home. Just finished this before we went to the airport for my hubby to do his first flying lesson. ✈️💕#ilovecozies #cozymystery

It's a dreary, dreary day, so I'm trying to pep it up with a visit to Torte, and two of my other favorite things - including a thematically-appropriate LaCroix. 😂 #acrimeofpassionfruit #elliealexander #julescapshaw #bakeshopmysteries

Yes, I know I posted 🥑🍞last night for a review but it was actually consumed a couple of days ago & I wanted it again.😋🍴I was going to read more of this culinary cozy with my toast & cold brew before getting to work at my coffeeshop office but I got caught up in looking at all the favorites you've been posting for my #debsstack Litsyversary 📚stack giveaway. So fun and the perfect way to start my morning! Thanks for all the #Litsy love! ❤️❤️❤️

DebinHawaii @Cinfhen @Robothugs @8little_paws @BarbaraBB @ReadOrDieRachel @Mimi28 Thanks for supporting my 🥑🍞💚! 😆👍 @MinDea It's a spicy garlic aioli & a sprinkle of celery salt. An excellent combination. I have a recipe I recreated so I can make it at home. Let me know if you'd like the link--it's also on the last avo toast pic back. 😋🍴 2y
