Known for its mouthwatering traditional breads, the Yeast of Eden bakery has gained fame across Northern California’s coast. Now the shop is bound for Reality TV—but a murder may kill its reputation . . .

People come to the beach town of Santa Sofia as much for the healing properties of Yeast of Eden’s breads as for a vacation getaway. And now a cable food channel has selected the bakery as a featured culinary delight for a new show. Baking apprentice Ivy Culpepper is excited as the crew arrives, ready to capture all the ins and outs of the renowned bread shop. But instead they capture something much harder to stomach: the attempted murdered of the show’s cameraman just outside Yeast of Eden . . .

With no motive and no clues, and the town craving answers, it will be up to Ivy to sift through the evidence to find the truth. But she’ll have to move quickly before someone else is targeted or the wrong person gets the heat—and the business collapses like a deflated soufflΓ©, right before her eyes.

Dough or Die, by Winnie Archer

One of my favorite things about writing in the cozy mystery genre is the punny titles. They are so fun! I admit that sometimes I get stumped coming up with the next one in my series, but I have an amazing group of people on Facebook who are always game to help…and they come up with some amazing titles.

Dough or Die is book 5 in the Bread Shop Mystery series. Death Gone a-Rye is done and in production. The next one, book 7, is a holiday title. Oh my gosh, there were some great ideas! Check them out:

 The Ginger-Dead House

A Well-Baked Death

Stollen and Iced for the Holidays

A Murder Yule Regret

Dulce de Death

Kneading a Silent Night

Dashing through the Dough


My editor and I narrowed it down to our two favorites (it was tough!). They are:
The Ginger-Dead House and A Murder Yule Regret

We went with the latter. I can already imagine the cover.

Here’s the lineup of the books in the Bread Shop Mystery series:

Kneaded to Death

Crust No One

The Walking Bread

Flour in the Attic

Dough or Die

Murder Gone a-Rye (May 2021)

The Ginger-Dead House (October 2021)

There will be a book 8 and I need a title! I’d love your suggestions, so if you have any, post them here!

If you haven’t tried the series, I hope you will give it a shot! Thank you for having me with you today, and happy reading!
