Summary
Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swensen mystery series has garnered widespread praise for its "delightful sleuth" (Publishers Weekly) and delicious recipes. In Fudge Cupcake Murder, Hannah Swensen has her hands full teaching a cooking class and running her bakery, The Cookie Jar. But when her brother-in-law is named the primary suspect in the murder of the town's sheriff, Hannah makes time to sniff around for the killer. The latest addition to this popular series includes 10 scrumptious new recipes.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Fluke's scrumptious fifth culinary cozy (after 2003's Lemon Meringue Pie Murder), Lake Eden, Minn., bakery owner Hannah Swensen discovers the fudge-stained corpse of overbearing, unscrupulous Sheriff Grant in a trash receptacle near her cooking school. Hannah's brother-in-law Bill is the prime suspect in the bludgeoning of his rival for the upcoming sheriff's election, so Hannah's about-to-deliver pregnant sister, Andrea, frantically begs her investigative assistance. And to kick it up a notch, HannahÆs current red-hot squeeze, the acting sheriff, suspends Bill from the force, causing Hannah to come to a rolling boil. Moishe, Hannah's engaging cat, gives her more grief than comfort as he adjusts stubbornly to his dotage. While Hannah tries to identify the essential ingredient of a certain cupcake formula taken to the grave by a deceased local homemaker, most readers will have figured out who the real killer is long before Hannah does. Mix unsavory small-town scandals, an annoying marriage-minded mother and quirky, sweet-toothed locals; add a generous dollop of humor and romantic foible; sprinkle with intriguing recipes; and you have a slightly cloying though satisfying fireside read."
