Publisher's Summary

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.

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' 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.

Fun Culinary Cozy

What three words best describe Dina Pearlman’s voice?

Older woman from New York who smokes cigarettes. I enjoyed the story but the voice was distracting. It did not match the youngish-Gwyneth Paltrow-look-alike main character. She sounds like a woman in her fifties with a masculine voice with a thick New York-accent. It is the worst match of a voice with a character I've ever listened to. I listen to many many audiobooks, especially cozies and the voice was a distraction for the entire story.

With that being said, Dina does a great job. She can't help how her voice sounds but the producers should've done a better job of matching the voice with the character.

I'm not sure I'll read the next one

I heard the whole thing and didn't hate it but I'm not sure if I liked it. The story was interesting but the main character was a little annoying. I did like most of the secondary characters though. The mystery wasn't that interesting and the reason she left her husband was dumb in my opinion so I'm not sure if I want to read another book or not

Enjoyable food cozy

Liked the book, setting and characters. Mystery was fun to follow the clues. I enjoyed the descriptive baking and cooking. The ebook has recopes in the back. No romance in this one. Just the intro to the community and characters. Enjoyed the narration. Narrator's voices and pacing made the story fun.

Definitely not “Gilmore Girls”....

I saw an ad for this series on FB, proclaiming it to be Gilmore Girls meets bake ship mystery... it was an easy listen, and a decent whodunit, but don’t expect the clever dialogue of Gilmore.

Oregon Baker Goes Sleuthing

When Jules Capshaw returns home to Ashland, Oregon after her marriage breaks up, she finds that the family bake shop is in trouble. Joining forces with her mom, Jules brings all her baking talent to the shop and the bakery is soon full of customers. When one of the regulars, Nancy Hudson is murdered, Jules comes face to face with her old high school sweetheart, Thomas, who is investigating the case. Somehow, though, Jules doesn’t believe that Thomas is getting the full picture. So she decides to help. I enjoyed this story immensely. The employees at Torte, the bake shop are quirky and fun to get to know. The townsfolk are equally interesting. The relationship between Jules and her mom, which had been strained ever since her dad had died, is growing warmer. I never figured out who the murderer was. Took me totally by surprise. Great cozy tale! I’m going on to the next in the series!
