Till Death Do Us Tart (A Bakeshop Mystery #8) Reviews
It has been a weekend of weddings here. I finished Death Do Us Tart on Friday, perfect book to read just before the royal wedding. I love Ellie Alexander's series based in Ashland Oregon and her bakery Crew from Torte. This was a great read. So much more than a book just about a wedding. There was the beautiful wedding of The Professor and Jules mom, but also great twists with in twists of story lines. Lance, Carlos, Thomas, not to mention the staff and changes happening at Torte, Even the nasty ...more
Till Death Do Us Tart is the eighth book in Ellie Alexander’s Bakeshop Mystery series. The books in this series are fun and easy-to-read cozy mysteries, with interesting mysteries and a well-developed cast of characters. Ms. Alexander’s writing style is so descriptive and vivid that I often felt I was right there experiencing all the excitement and delectable food along with the characters. The author provides enough background information that each book in this series can be read as a standalon ...more
Thanks to the publisher (via Netgalley) for an advance e-galley in exchange for an honest review!
The Bakeshop Mysteries series maintains its charm (and its status as my one of favorite cozy mystery series) with Till Death Do Us Tart! Ok, so I cannot tell a lie, I was hooked from the very beginning of this book when Jules describes the edible cookie cups she is baking to fill with milk. I've been talking about wanting to make cookie cups to fill with milk for at least 15 years now (ok, probably c ...more

I have waited a long time to read this book and it had the ending I was hoping for!
I adore this series so much and this latest entry didn't disappoint. Fingers crossed that the author doesn't end the series for a while but I think I can read the writing on the cake. [Update 4-30-18: Author assures me this series won't be ending any time soon. Yay!]
This is the perfect series for anyone who wants a cozy mystery with no objectionable content (except perhaps some very appealing and fattening food descriptions and recipes) and likable characters--well, except for Richard Lord and t ...more

She spent years away as the pastry chef for a cruise ship and fell in love and married the handsome Spanish chef Carlos. When she finds out he has a son that he never told her about, she leaves him and her job behind and returns home to Ashland.
This is a terrific setting people ...more
It is always a pleasure to return to Ashland Oregon and Torte to see what Juliet and the rest of the cast is up to. This is a fun series and fans will not be disappointed with this installment. I love how the author has grown these characters over the course of eight books and continues to allow them to grow and evolve. This is definitely a character drive cozy mystery series but there mystery itself was good. Juliet and Lance are once again right in the middle of what is going on and provide as ...more
