In her debut mystery, Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder, intrepid amateur sleuth and bakery owner Hannah Swensen proved that when it comes to crime, nothing is sweeter than a woman who knows how to really mix it up. Now, the flame-haired, tart-talking (and baking) heroine is back, judging a contest where the competition is really murder.

Strawberry Shortcake Murder

Whenthe president of Hartland Flour chooses cozy Lake Eden, Minnesota, as the spot for their first annual Dessert Bake-Off, Hannah is thrilled to serve as the head judge. But when a fellow judge, Coach Boyd Watson, is found stone-cold dead, facedown in Hannah's celebrated strawberry shortcake, Lake Eden's sweet ride to fame turns very sour indeed.

Between perfecting her Cheddar Cheese Apple Pie and Chocolate Crunchies, Hannah's snooping into the coach's private life and not coming up short on suspects. And could Watson's harsh criticism during the judging have given one of the contestants a license to kill? The stakes are rising faster than dough, and Hannah will have to be very careful, because somebody is cooking up a recipe for murder. . .with Hannah landing on the "necessary ingredients" list.

Another good book by Joanne Fluke. Don't read these books if you are hungry as the recipes sound delicious.

I am really enjoying this series. It is lighthearted, easy to read, and just a lot of fun. This particular book had me giggling and smiling all the way through... even though it is about a murder. Hannah is her own woman, something that her mother doesn't want to understand, and she gets herself into the darndest situations. I'll be reading the whole series, I believe.

Hannah Swensen owns a cookie shop in a small town in Minnesota, and some of her recipes are included. After a judge made harsh comments while judging a dessert bake-off, he is found murdered in his garage. He was an abusive husband, so nobody was too upset until a second murder is discovered by Hannah. These are light mysteries with some appeal, but I prefer the books of Diane Mott Davidson, who also includes recipes.
