Cozy Review: On Thin Icing: A Bakeshop Mystery

I've finished "On Thin Icing" the 3rd book in her Bakeshop Mystery series by Ellie Alexander.

Product Description

Welcome to Torte -a small-town family bakeshop where the treats are killer good.

It's the dead of winter in the sleepy town of Ashland, which means no tourists - and fewer customers - for Jules Capshaw and her bakery. But when she's asked to cater an off-season retreat for the directors of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, business starts heating up until Jules finds a dead body in the freezer.

Someone at the retreat has apparently iced the bartender, a well-known flirt with a legendary temper - that is, before a killer beat him to the punch. Then, from out of nowhere, Jules's own ex-husband shows up at the shop - and soon becomes a suspect. With accusations piling up higher than the snow-and thicker than a chocolate mousse cake - Jules has to think outside the (recipe) box to find the real culprit and make sure he gets his just desserts.

My Review:

Wow I loved the description of all the food that was prepared and made for the directors.  It's pretty cool some the recipes are printed at the end of the book so you can try them out!

The secondary characters were pretty quirky and out there with the obnoxious bartender who thinks he's god gift to woman, the flaky retreat owner and the scared director's assistant.

It was hilarious every time Carlos was in the room with Jules and her reaction or memory of their time together.


Thanks St. Martin's Press for sending me this book to review, greatly appreciated!
