It’s Christmastime and everyone is heading to Torte, the most cheerful bakery in town. There’s no place like home for the homicide…

Ashland, Oregon, looks as pretty as a postcard this holiday season. The halls are decked, stockings hung, and eyes are all aglow―mostly thanks to the buttered rum. Jules Capshaw and her staff at Torte are busier than ever. . . still, even the town’s most in-demand bakers need to take a break. So Jules invites everyone to celebrate at the local Winchester Inn’s Dickens Feast, a six-course extravaganza with Yorkshire Pudding, Christmas goose, and all the trimmings. But as the weather outside becomes frightful, things inside turn less delightful when one of the guests ends up as dead as Scrooge’s doornail. Now it’s up to Jules and her helpers to make a list of suspects―and check it twice―to try to find out who’s naughty, who’s nice, and who’s guilty of murder…

The Bakeshop mysteries are:

The Body in the Gravel (A Jazzi Zanders Mystery Book 3) by [Lynn, Judi]Even in a lovely town like River Bluffs, Indiana, flipping houses can be a challenge. Especially when there’s the proverbial skeleton in the closet—and a literal corpse in the driveway . . .

House-flipper Jazzi Zanders has her work cut out for her. Her latest flip, which she co-purchased with her fiancée Ansel and cousin Jerod, is a three-story fixer-upper that’s more of a droopy-downer. One corner of the house is sinking and needs to be jacked up with a new cement foundation. That costs money. And causes headaches. And creates a work environment that’s not only hostile, it’s downright deadly . . .

Jazzi knows it’s a tough job. Which is why she hired Darby to lay the cement. But when Darby gets into a fiery argument with the furnace man—and then never shows up to lay gravel for the driveway—Jazzi starts to wonder if the rumors about Darby are true. Did he kill his wife and son and bury them in the yard like some folks claim? When Darby’s dead body comes pouring out of a gravel truck, murder upstages the real estate market as her biggest concern . . .  (Amazon)

With Hurricane Elvis — the “storm of the century” – bearing down on Dead End, Florida, Tess, Jack, and the gang have their hands full doing storm prep for themselves and the quirky paranormal residents of the town. They certainly don’t have time for the discovery of yet another dead body. But in Dead End, you never know when magic, mayhem, and murder will combine to cause as much chaos as a rogue vampire let loose in a blood bank.

And when Tess, a pawn shop owner who can see how you’ll die, and Jack, an ex-soldier and tiger shifter turned private eye, team up to solve another murder, the criminals had better watch out. Because a hurricane is no match for Hurricane Tess, and sometimes it takes a tiger’s eye to see the truth.
