Welcome to Torte―a friendly, small-town family bakery where the pastries are delicious…and, now, suspicious.
It’s almost spring in Ashland, Oregon, and the town is preparing for the Shakespeare Festival and the annual Chocolate Festival.

Torte stands a chance of being this year’s confectionery belle of the ball!
Life couldn’t be sweeter―unless murder taints the batter.
Evan Rowe, of Confections Couture, makes a chocolate fountain that would put Willy Wonka to shame, and his truffles are to die for―literally?
Yes, the world-renowned chocolatier has just turned up dead…right after sampling a slice of Jules’s decadent four-layer chocolate cake.
Now all eyes are on Jules as she tries to find the mysterious ingredient in her own recipe.
Can she sift out the truth before another contestant bites the buttercream?
