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