Speaker - Ellie Alexander - Her 15th book in her Bakeshop Mystery series, NOTHING BUNDT TROUBLE, debuted June 30, 2020 from St. Martins Press. 

Spring has sprung in Ashland, Oregon, and at Torte, Juliet Capshaw’s family bakeshop, is all set to handle the influx of tourists for this year’s Shakespeare Festival while she moves back into her childhood home. Then 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 go through the details from another era, before an old enemy brings the Capshaw “pastry case” to a modern-day dead end.
Ellie Alexander also writes three other series, The Sloan Krause Mysteries, The Pacific Northwest Mysteries and under Kate Dyer-Seeley, The Rose City Mysteries.  She is a native of the Pacific Northwest.

"Riveting... a fascinating, irresistible marvel."
*Starred review, Library Journal

​It’s 1942. The Japanese have invaded Burma and are closing in on India. After five years in the remote Andaman Islands, aspiring anthropologist Claire Durant and her husband Shep, a civil surgeon, must evacuate with their beloved but mysteriously mute four-year-old, Ty. They cannot, however, take Naila, the local girl whose ability to communicate with Ty has made them dangerously dependent on her. The morning of the evacuation, both children disappear. With time running out, Shep forces Claire onto the ship while he stays behind to find their son. But just days after landing in Calcutta, Claire learns that the Japanese have taken the Andamans—and cut off all access to her missing family. In the desperate odyssey that follows, Claire, Shep, and Naila will all take unimaginable risks while drawing deeply from their knowledge of these unique islands to save their beloved “glorious boy."
