Overview

Bakery owner Hannah Swensen just can't keep her hands out of the batter when murder stirs things up in Lake Eden, Minnesota, leaving the sheriff dead, a deputy accused, and a killer on the loose. . .

For Hannah, life seems to be lacking a certain flavor lately. Maybe it's the local sheriff's election that's got her down. For years, Sheriff Grant's been the iron hand in town. But now, Hannah's brother-in-law Bill is giving the old blowhard the fight of his long, dubious career--and Grant's not taking it well, especially once the polls show Bill pulling ahead.

But before anyone can taste victory, things go sour. While Hannah's emptying the trash, she makes a very unappetizing discovery: Sheriff Grant's body in the Dumpster behind the high school where she's teaching her cooking class. And as if that weren't bad enough, the poor man still has fudge frosting on his shirt from one of her cupcakes.

The number one--and only--suspect is Bill, but Hannah's not swallowing it. Plenty of people had reason to hate Sheriff Grant. Soon, Hannah's dishing up scandalous secrets, steaming hot betrayals, and enough intrigue to keep the gossip mill at The Cookie Jar going through several pots of decaf. And the closer Hannah gets to the truth, the closer she gets to smoking out a murderer with a very nasty recipe for silencing people. . .

Includes Ten Original Dessert Recipes For You To Try!

    enjoyable

    If you love to eat and read, this series is for you. I enjoy the reading. It isn't a rush to the end kind of book. However, it is far better than a lot of the junk I've decided to try. It is finishable. I do get a bit tired of her putting up with the hunk because he is a hunk and not really a good fellow. But, that is personal prejudice.

    The stories are good. However, I do wonder when the only ones left in the small town will be her small circle of friends. Maybe the cookie lady is doing in everyone just to pin it up on someone she doesn't like?

    Give Me FLAVOR & Hear Me ROAR!!

    True to her series¿ successful addictions, again Fluke provides readers with an anticipated invite into morning routines with Hannah¿s macho cat, Moishe, this time introducing the battle of the Crunchies. This cat continues to do a reader capture, maybe a kidnap. His shenanigans could make a cat-a-phobic warm up to hair balls. Loved the various executions Moishe devised for flavorless Crunchies. The Vet had advised Hannah to cajole Moishe to gobble up Senior Cat Food, with a force-feed-tag included if necessary. Throughout the novel I prayed that Hannah wises up and gives Moishe his 'burger' HIS way. (This was a ruff-n-tumble alley cat prior to Hannah taking him in eating who knew what out of the sewers of life.) Of course Hannah's morning ministrations wouldn't be complete without her unwelcome mother clanging into a busy daughter's life, a mother reviled with relish. Dolores doesn't appear to be a Joan Crawford parading the 'Mommie Dearest' mystique. The mother here is merely a nosey, critical, demanding, domineering, bad taste influence in Hannah's life, a woman who always refers to Hannah, tellingly, as 'dear,' and never hits a good time to step into Hannah's constant rush. It seems that Fluke dearly wants to paint Dolores as a hometown, modern day, sour-milk-mamma, destructive to a daughter's spirit shining gleefully off-beat to her own drummer. Yet, I catch welcome flashes of redemption flickering through devious Dolores's seemingly thin veneer of character. Enjoyed the morning routine twist in this book when Hannah was dreading Dolores's voice on the phone and heard Andrea instead. Liked the fact that Dolores distanced herself a bit from her daughters in this book. Maybe Dolores is stepping out of a warn-out character, turning the tide of interest toward her instead of away? This may be a good sign for those daughter readers who've lost Mom and felt that loss. Also enjoyed the focus on Mike in this mystery, with Norman kept off page somewhere through most of the plot (though I honestly like both these men, almost equally). The draw of Mike's sex appeal is played up well in this book, stimulating Hannah's bemoaned lack of sophistication into steaming up her cookie wagon windows, as she happily learns a little late in life about adolescent auto alignment. Fluke fills up the tank of readers' questions about to whom (when, why, and where) Hannah will give an exclusive commitment. With coffee for blood, this cozy author percolates ongoing, unanswered questions. I closed the book with hunger pangs satisfied, yet with an appetite for the newest hardback in the series.

    Wow

    I just can't get enough of her books. I am on the 9th in her series. They are easy to read. With my husband's cancer treatments, these books are light & easy to stop & continue through all his appointments. And they give me something to laugh at or see humorous during this tough time in my life. Keep on writing & I will keep on reading your books Joanne.

    Loved this book. Great story line. Love that the reader can figure the murder mysteries out along with Hanna and Andrea. I wonder which man Hanna will end up with. Both are great, but I think she has more in common with Norman than Mike. Norman got her Halloween costume when no one else did. Mike might be nice looking, but there is more to an relationship than that. Back to the orginial subject, loved this book.

    Recommended, especially for cooks.

    I am enjoying this whole series. Hannah accidentally enters into murder investigations and does even better than the cops. The recipes at the end of each chapter are great, too.

    Another great light read in the fifth book in this series. This

    Another great light read in the fifth book in this series. This time out the mystery didn't start until you were well into the book but the other ongoing events kept it going. Hannah is writing a cookbook and teaching a class. Her sister Andrea's husband Bill is running for Sheriff.... just as the Sheriff is killed. Meanwhile Hannah is trying to figure out the secret ingredient in a Fudge Cupcake recipe that Mrs. Koester took to her grave! I wish the mystery was a little more prominent. That being said I do like all of the books in this series. When is Hannah going to decide between Mike and Norman? I guess we'll have to keep reading to find out!
