Chilled to the Cone by Ellie Alexander

Hello my cozy friends,

Today I am reviewing "Chilled to the Cone" the 12th instalment in the A Bakeshop Mystery series by Ellie Alexander.


Pastry chef and amateur sleuth Juliet Capshaw finds herself on thin ice as she attempts to solve her latest case of small-town murder in Ellie Alexander's Chilled to the Cone: A Bakeshop Mystery.

The deep freeze has thawed in Ashland, Oregon and Torte is gearing up for a busy spring. When a surprise opportunity to launch a pop-up ice cream shop comes her way, Jules jumps at the chance to showcase Torte’s signature iced drinks and cold custards. But selling the desserts of her dreams comes at a price. . .and, before she knows it, Jules’s life swirls into a nightmare. One of the town’s most colorful characters, a street performer known for wearing capes and a cone-shaped hat, turns up dead just as Torte 2.0 is set to open its doors. Can Jules get the scoop on what happened to “The Wizard” of Ashland before her new business venture reaches a chilling conclusion?

I really enjoyed this story, the whole spring time vibe and how it brings new beginnings.  I liked that Carlos was there and Jules was trying to figure out where they are in their marriage. There were other new beginnings in the book but i wont get into those and spoil it for you.  Needless to say I cant wait for the next book.  I liked hearing about the railway district and what it has to offer to the whole small town feel.    

The mystery is interesting and well plotted, and there were just enough twists and turns to keep you guessing.   Don’t get me started on the descriptions of all the desserts, drinks and food , I think I gained 15lbs just thinking about them. I like that recipes are included in back of the book too 

I recommend this book to all my cozy lover friends.

I requested and received an advance reader copy of this book from St. Martin's Press and Netgalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
