21 posts | 11 read | 14 to read
Welcome to Tortea friendly, small-town family bake shop where the oven is heating up as high as the body count... Jules Capshaw is still chewing over her husband Carloss return to Ashland, Oregon. Could there be too many cooks in the kitchen? Whatever is stirring between those two will have to wait. Despite the Oregon Shakespeare Festival being dark for the winter, the bakeshop is bustling, the dough is rolling, and theres no rest for the weary...especially when murder is thrown into the mix. When Mindy Nolan, the owner of a new restaurant in town, turns up dead, the batter at hand thickens. Jules knows that there was bad blood between Mindy and others in town, and tracking down the killer could prove to be an unwelcome treat. And to top it all off, theres Carlos, who is pleadingwith those delicious dark eyes and sexy Spanish accentfor Jules to take him back. Is home where the heart is or will she make a fresh start...and risk getting burned?

My husband is sleeping before he has to go back to the hospital tonight, laundry is going, dinner is cooking (thanks crock pot!), so I‘m enjoying the last free day before classes start back for me tomorrow. Happy Sunday!

#bookspin #17
Done with my second book from the list!
I‘ve lost count but I think this is book #4 from the Bakeshop Mystery Cozy Series.

Generally I love to finish all books in a series in one go but this one is perfect to read each one as a stand alone in your free time. (And it has nothing to do with the fact that there are 11 books in total with more coming....🤫😂) lol

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

This had me laughing out of my seat! Looool I guess the last decade has been defined by vampires thanks to #Twilight and #TVD. 😂😂

Although, I find the genre pretty alluring. Think about it, a baby faced character is great cuz no one would know how old they are. Are they 18 or an 800 year old soul? Anything is possible and it amps up the creepiness.🧛🏼‍♀️

Liking the book but as someone who enjoys spelling bees I was surprised at the many spelling errors. Also why say ‘owner‘ of bookshop instead of personalizing her? Seems to me this book was rushed. Otherwise main characters well developed and interesting story.

#HeyJune #IWantToHoldYourHand

OK, going for this punny 'hand' title from one of my favorite foodie cozy series for today's ? prompt.
But I can relate to some of the lyrics "...And when I touch you, I feel happy inside. It's such a feelin' that my love I can't hide..." Kinda sums up how I feel when I'm in the presence of freshly-baked bread--my love I can't hide! ???????

AmyG Ha! And I understand. There is nothing like fresh, warm bread...and butter. Good job! 5y
GypsyKat Haha! Love it! 5y
Lindy That‘s great! Thanks for making me smile. 😊 5y

So...I was getting ready to start "Banana Cream Pie Murder" when I realized that I missed "Christmas Caramel Murder," which means that that's on hold until I get my paws on "Christmas Caramel." So it's back to Ashland, Oregon, and the lovely gang at Torte!

Book 4 of this foodie cozy mystery series has Jules trying to decide what to do about her husband & getting involved in the murder of the new owner of a chain fast food restaurant who is angering the town of Ashland, OR by not complying with the Shakespearean vibe. It also has lots of food besides bread like red velvet cake, boozy cherry marzipan cake, some yummy sounding Mexican food & a creamy potato breakfast casserole that made me drool.📚🍴👍

LauraJ I'll take a slice of that boozy cherry marzipan pie! 6y
Debiw781 I need to catch up on this series! The first one was a lot of fun 6y

Really enjoyed this foodie cozy with lots of likable characters! Even though it's the reason there is nothing but crumbs left from this piece of red velvet cake. Come to think of it it's the reason I bought a piece of red velvet cake in the first place!
