I hope I'm not at an affair with Hannah, Jessica Fletcher, Dick Van Dyke, and a few others in the same room, I'm leaving because there's sure to be a body! I just happened to see the Apple Pie Mystery, bought the book and have enjoyed it so much I'm always looking for new ones to buy. I don't keep them in my book case, but in my kitchen. Some reciepies look fun to try. Always making me laugh, sometimes hungry. Thanks From a Des Miones, Iowa satisified reader

No, they are not the most exciting or intriguing mysteries but i always enjoy them. The situations are so mundane that i find it interesting that the author can turn them into murder mysteries. Also, i love cookbooks almost as much as i love mysteries so the recipes are a great bonus. Cant wait to try some.

Love this series...mainly because there is no blood and guts. And especially because it includes fab recipes in each book. Every one I have tried have been excellent. And there is a plot and humor included.

The citizens of Lake Eden, Minnesota are very proud of hosting the first annual Hartland Flour Dessert Bake-off. Bakery owner, Hannah Swensen is the head judge and even makes it on the evening news, showing how to bake strawberry shortcake. The first day of judging is not quite as smooth as the pre-event setup. Showing no tact, last minute replacement judge, Coach Boyd Watson accurately but viciously rips the desserts of four of the contestants, irritating everyone.

That night Boyd¿s wife Danielle calls Hannah pleading with her to come over quickly. Hannah does only to find someone murdered Boyd in his garage. All the circumstantial evidence points towards Hannah. She was a battered spouse and even now sports a black eye. Her fingerprints are on the murder weapon, a hammer. Finally the victim¿s blood is all over her clothing. Hannah believes Danielle did not kill Boyd, but she worries that even her best friend, police detective Mike Kensington, thinks the wife killed the abusive husband. Having solved a previous homicide (see CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE MURDER), Hannah decides to investigate because she also realizes that in this election year, the sheriff, re-running for office, will want a fast solution.

THE STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE MURDER is an entertaining amateur sleuth tale starring a person who seems more like a neighbor than a character in a book. The story line is fun and Chef Joanne Fluke, who proves with this tale that she is not a one-book fluke, bakes the who-done-it to a tasty morsel. Harriet Klausner

This is another murder mystery that has gives another killer sweet tooth, it is the second book in a cozy mystery series involving a baker and amateur sleuths that not only bakes delicious and temping sweets, but has a real sweet tooth when it comes to murder. Again in this second installment to a delicious murder mystery series, Hannah Swensen is back, and this time she's selected to be a judge at a baking competition held at Lake Eden High School. The owner of Hartland Flour is holding the event. And after one of the judges is unable to attend, Hannah takes his place. The only downside is that harsh, critical, and also stearn coach Boyd Watson is also judging the evening, and later he is found by Hannah in his garage, his head bashed in, and also face down in Hannah's Strawberry Shortcake. Boyd's battered wife, Danielle is the most likely suspect in the case, because it's the whole "the spouse is the most likely suspect" and while she is admitted to the hospital to be checked out due to shock. Hannah and her sister, Andrea, decided to go behind Detective Mike Kingston's back and find enough evidence to clear Danielle's name and find the real killer.

I like Diane Mott Davidson and hoped this might be similar. Only similarity is that there are recipes. I won't even finish this one.
