Catch Me If You Candy
Catch Me If You Candy: A Bakeshop Mystery | Ellie Alexander
13 posts | 6 read | 1 to read
Things are getting spooky in Catch Me If You Candy, the next delicious installment in the Bakeshop Series from author Ellie Alexander, set in Ashland, Oregon! Halloween has arrived in picturesque Ashland, Oregon, and all of the ghouls and goblins have descended on Main Street for the annual parade. Its a giant street party and Torte is right in the mix. Jules Capshaw and her team have been baking up autumn delights and trick-or-Torte bags filled with sugar cookie cutouts, spiced cider, and mummy munch. Its the end of the season at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, which means that the costumes for the parade are going to be out of this world. The elaborate guises even extend to pets. The grand marshal of this years parade is no other than a regal pug aptly named King George. Jules is delighted to get to share the experience with Carlos and Ramiro, but things take a dark turn when she discovers a dragon slumped in front of the bakeshop. Jules is distraught when she realizes the dragon is dead. Shes also shaken because a few days before the parade, her mother's Mahjong partner Helen discovered a warning note about a dragon in an antique game set. Jules hopes its just a random coincidence, but as the clues begin to unfold it becomes evident that theres been a murder on All Hallows Eve. Can Juliet sift out the truth before the killer comes after her?

This series just keeps getting better and better! I love the relationships the characters have developed and everything that comes out of the kitchen of Torte makes my mouth water! I will be sad if this series ever ends!

The latest in my cheesy cozy mystery series. I consider it my guilty pleasure. Some people like Hallmark movies. It‘s like that but not as predictable. Anyway… I love this series and all it‘s cheese!

The series is not into book 17 and it hasn‘t lost its touch! The setting is just magical, the food makes me drool while reading, the characters are all great, and the mysteries never fail. This one continues to be zippy, throwing in plenty of possible suspects and then some last minute zig zags to make you question yourself before you learn the truth.

Halloween has arrived in picturesque Ashland, Oregon, and all of the ghouls and goblins have descended on Main Street for the annual parade. It‘s a giant street party and Torte is right in the mix.

Jules mom's friend, Wendy, has bought a new mahjong set. Inside they find a note about a dragon being killed. Soon a dragon is killed, was the note a premonition? Jules soon finds herself and Lance, her best friend, in another mystery. ⬇️

Monica5 There's so many suspects. Can they find the killer before it's to late?

I enjoyed this cozy mystery. I would say before you read it make sure you are full because it is going to make you hungry. Torte Cafe is always making delicious sounding food, and it made me hungry throughout the book. 😅

Tentative Publishing Date: August 22, 2023

Thanks to Netgalley, St. Martin's Press and Alexander for the E-ARC. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

#Rushathon #SeriesLove2023

Finished this week & since I‘m catching up with yesterday‘s #BookBinge prompt which was #InvolvesDragon 🐉Thought I‘d do double duty & review my ARC (publishing 8/22) as it does involve🐉 🐉🐉

This is book 17 in the Bakeshop mystery series & Jules & the Torte team are planning for Ashland‘s Halloween festivities when Jules drops a box of pastries to her mom‘s mahjong group & sees the unique mahjong set her mom‘s best⬇️

TheSpineView Well done! 6mo
DebinHawaii …friend bought at a charity shop. There‘s a 🐉 mahjong tiles & a mysterious note hidden in a drawer that says “if you read this, the dragon is dead!” And the local theater is going to perform “A Play About a Dragon” & in the Halloween parade, someone in a 🐉 costume is murdered. Is it all connected? Jules is on the case. A good entry in this favorite fun foodie cozy series that never fails to make me hungry. Love the characters & the food. 😋 (edited) 6mo

#RushAThon

My weekend recap: caught up with #CampLity23 & #SundayBuddyRead realongs. Got about 1/3 of my #ARC of the tagged book read for #SeriesLove2023 & powered through about 75% of The Modern Girls Guide to Magic for a #CozyFantasyFellowship readalong on Fable (‘m now WAY ahead of where I should be, so not doing well with the “readalong” part).🤷🏻‍♀️2 chapters in on Gideon The Ninth & I‘m not sure it‘s for me but I‘ll give it a few more. ⬇️

DebinHawaii …chapters before I pull the plug. Reading my homework section in Grit tonight for my weekly Tuesday leadership foundation for work so I‘m not cramming 3 books in Monday night. (edited) 7mo
