  • A fun addition to the series!

    4.5 Stars In this eleventh installment in Ellie Alexander's A Bakeshop Mystery series, Jules discovers her father's old journal in the basement of her childhood home, which talks about an unsolved murder from the 80s. With the help of Lance and the professor, she becomes determined to solve the cold case. I thought this was a wonderful addition to the series. The plot is unique, the setting is enchanting, and the characters are well-written and feel like old friends. I really enjoyed learning about Ashland's past, as well as getting to know Jules's dad. It was easy to see where Jules got her personality from, and I teared up at the end when she read his final journal entry. The mystery kept me engaged and the culprit's identity was a surprise. This is a delightful series, with mouthwatering descriptions of food, heartwarming relationships, and a sense of community and family. I eagerly await the next book. You can never go wrong with a book by Ellie Alexander. Thank you to NetGalley and St Martin's Press for the opportunity to read this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

  • Memories of Murder

    Juliet Capshaw is making her old family home her own and comes across her father’s old journal as she is hunting for furnishings in the basement. As she reads through the journal, she discovers that her father had been helping the police to find a murderer back in the 1980s. After reading the first entry, Juliet speaks with her step-father who was her father’s friend and the detective he was working with. Turns out the cold case is heating up again and Juliet is looking for clues, just like her father. Is the murdered long dead and gone, or does the murderer still live among the residents of Ashland? Another delicious entry in this series. You can never go wrong with a book from Ellie Alexander. This flash back to the 1980s was fun and the whodunit was well written. Always a pleasure to have a new book from this Author added to my reading pile.

  • I loved it!

    I have always been a fan of this series but this latest one is my favourite! It had an outstanding whodunit which kept me riveted! I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

  • Not what I expected!

    Nothing Bundt Trouble by Ellie Alexander is the 11th A Bakeshop Mystery. It can be read on its own if you are new to this culinary mystery series. Juliet “Jules” Capshaw found her deceased father’s journal in a box in the basement. She reads how he was conflicted about getting involved in The Pastry Case and decides to discuss it with Doug (aka Professor) who was her father’s best friend. Ashland, Oregon is always a charming town to visit with Torte, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and its friendly residents (except Richard Lord). I like the family feel inside Torte, among the staff, and the descriptions of the tasty treats they whip up. Nothing Bundt Trouble is different from the other ten books in this series. Roughly two-thirds of the book involves Doug and Jules sitting at a table in Torte reading William Capshaw’s journal. Jules seems to go into a haze while they are reading. She fails to notice the lively atmosphere of Torte with people coming in and out getting coffee and pastries. The pacing is sluggish courtesy of the detailed journal entries and lack of action. With all that William had going on in his life, I do not know how he found the time to write such lengthy, detailed entries (would you really write about the food people ate). I missed the lightheartedness that is the norm for the books in A Bakeshop Mystery series. When the story returns to the present Jules and Lance work to solve the case. Chuck Faraday was not a well-liked man which provides some good suspects. The whodunit can be solved easily before the reveal. I did like getting to know more about William. We also get to learn what Helen and Jules were like in 1988. It seems that Jules was inquisitive even as a child. The 1980s gives Jules inspiration for a fun party. Nothing Bundt Trouble just missed the mark for me. I look forward to reading Chilled to the Cone when it comes out later this year. Nothing Bundt Trouble is a blast from the past cozy mystery with a discovered diary, fabulous sugar flowers, clashes at the Cabaret, decorating dilemmas, and a cold case.
