This week, Torte—everybody’s favorite small-town family bakeshop—is headed for the high seas, where murder is about to make a splash. Take a visual tour of Ellie Alexander's 6th Bakeshop Mystery, A Crime of Passion Fruit, with GIFnotes!

Jules Capshaw is trying to keep her cool as Torte gets set to make its transformation from quaint, local confectionary café to royal pastry palace. 

Meanwhile, Jules’s estranged husband Carlos is making a desperate plea for her to come aboard his cruise ship…

And dazzle everyone with her signature sweets. 

She may be skeptical about returning to her former nautical life with Carlos… 

But Jules can’t resist an all-expense-paid trip, either. 

If only she knew that a dead body would find its way onto the itinerary.

Now, instead of enjoying tropical drinks on deck between whipping up batches of sea-salted chocolates and flambéing fresh pineapple slices in the kitchen…

Jules is plunged into dangerous waters. 

Her investigation leaves her with more questions than answers. 

Why can’t anyone on board identify the young woman? 

And how can she help Carlos keep passengers at ease with a killer in their midst? 

Jules feels like she’s ready to jump ship. 

Can she solve this case without getting in too deep?
