This time, Torte's pastry chef and amateur sleuth finds herself coming out of the oven and straight into the fire in Ellie Alexander's Nothing Bundt Trouble: A Bakeshop Mystery .

Spring has sprung in Ashland, Oregon, and everything at Torte seems to be coming up buttercream roses. But just when Juliet Capshaw seems to have found her sweet spot--with her staff set to handle the influx of tourists for this year's Shakespeare festival while she moves back into her childhood home--things take a dramatic turn. Jules discovers a long-forgotten dossier in her deceased father's belongings that details one of the most controversial cases in Ashland's history: a hit-and-run accident from the 1980s. Or was it?

Now it's up to Jules to parse through a whole new world of details from another era, from unraveling cassette tapes to recipes for Bundt cakes, before an old enemy brings the Capshaw "pastry case" to a modern-day dead end.

"Nothing Bundt Trouble", by Ellie Alexander, is book #11 in the wonderful "A Bakeshop Mystery" cozy series. While moving into her family home, Juliet discovers an old journal written by her deceased father. This is written differently than her previous books in that all but about 20 of the first 190 pages of the book are a transcript of the pages of that journal. Reading the whole backstory of Juliet's parents, as well as how they came to open Torte, was very interesting, as was the solving of the cold case. My only negative comment about this book (which is why I docked it a half star when rating it) is that Alexander did not change her writing style, even slightly, while writing the journal words; thus the journal sounded like Juliet's wording and I had to keep reminding myself while reading, that those words were from Juliet's father's journal rather than hers.
