Crime of Passion Fruit: Next Book Release Party in Vancouver, Washington


Ellie Alexander is back!

Ellie Alexander is releasing the newest installment in the Bakeshop Mysteries series, A Crime of Passion Fruit.

Take to the high seas with main character Jules Capshaw, joining her estranged husband, Carlos, aboard the cruise ship where he’s the head chef. Carlos won’t take no for an answer, and as a result Jules can’t say no – not to mention that there’s the all-expense-paid cruise. Ironically, she might have chosen otherwise had she known there’s be a body on the itinerary.
