    A good solid series.

    This is a good solid cozy series. I highly suggest you read them in order. The characters are first rate and the whodunit was well written. Overall I found this book more entertaining than the previous one in the series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    A leading light in the cozy culinary mystery genre

    I have grown to love this series and its cast of character, not to mention the charming town of Ashland. Ellie brings it all to life beautifully with a cozy, personable style. It's easy to get absorbed and devour these books in one relaxing afternoon apiece!

    A Delicious Mystery

    This is the first book I have read in the series, but it won’t be my last! Ellie Alexander and the town of Ashland Oregon are planning one heck of a surprise wedding for her Mother. But there are more secrets being kept in town than just the wedding when Ellie finds that her best friend Lance is actually a fairly local boy and still has family in the area and his father has expressed fears for his l life shortly before he passes away. With the wedding, a possible murder, a visit from Ellie’s estranged husband and his teenage son, and a threat against Ellie’s life, things are certainly busy in Ashland. It certainly makes for a fun read and lots of mystery. This is a great book to add to your Summer must read list!

    Charming cozy mystery!

    Till Death Do Us Tart by Ellie Alexander is the eighth tale in A Bakeshop Mystery series. Jules Capshaw has a lot of on her plate. She is busy planning a surprise wedding for her mother and the Professor. Everyone in Ashland, Oregon is in on the surprise except the couple getting married. The nuptials will take place Uva, the vineyard that Jules now owns shares in along with her estranged husband, Carlos (and the horrible Richard Lord). Carlos will be arriving in Ashland along with his son, Romero in two days. It is a Midsummer Night’s Dream wedding and guests have been asked to wear Elizabethan themed attire. The renovations of Torte are still ongoing. The downstairs will be complete within the week and then they can begin work upstairs. As if that is not enough, Lance returns to town and he has a problem. He believes his brother, Leo is poisoning their father and that someone is following him. He would like to invite Leo and his entourage to the wedding (oh no) as part of his plan. Then Lance’s father passes away under suspicious circumstances and a wedding guest collapses from poisoned wine. That glass of wine, though, was meant for Jules. Are the two cases connected? Murder, mayhem and the makeover of Torte are on the menu in Till Death Do Us Tart. Return to Ashland, Oregon in the latest A Bakeshop Mystery. While Till Death Do Us Tart is the eighth book in the series, it can be read alone. The author does provide the necessary background details for readers. Till Death Do Us Tart is nicely written and it has a fast pace. Ellie Alexander has a conversational writing style that makes her books easy to read and enjoy. There are many cozy moments with baking, friendship, the vineyard, touring the town and the wedding. Carlos is back in Jules life and the attraction between them in undeniable. Jules is falling back in love with Carlos, but she is not sure if he would be happy in Ashland. While I liked the mystery, I thought it was a cinch to solve. I would have liked a better wrap up of the mystery at the end. I wanted more facts and less assumption. My rating for Till Death Do Us Tart is 4 out of 5 stars (I liked it). Many delectable delights are mentioned in the book. They will have your mouth watering (there are recipes at the end of the book). We are left with a small cliffhanger at the end. Readers will have to wait for the next A Bakeshop Mystery to discover what happens next with Jules. Till Death Do Us Tart is a light-hearted, charming cozy mystery that will leave you smiling.

    Delightful Intrigue with wonderful developments

    Romance, family and murder blend into another wonderful tale in the A Bake Shop Mysteries series. A magnificent surprise wedding and the return of Carlos are the highlights that bring joy to the Till Death Do Us Tart, the latest book in the series. The family that Jules and her mother have created at Torte expands by one when Carlos brings his teen-aged son to meet Jules. In the midst of the happiness of the wedding and reunion, a tragic event tears Lance to pieces, so naturally he turns to his already overloaded friend to investigate a possible murder. The amazing characters are the thing that keep bringing me back to this delightful series. The mystery, unlike the great characters, did not meet Ellie Alexander’s usual high standard. It was good, better than many, just not as good a puzzle as she usually brings us. I excited to receive an ARC of Till Death do Us Tart via NetGalley and will spread the word to friends and follows. While the mystery wasn’t my favorite, the book was still awesome.
