Framing the Dialogue

Devil’s Food Cake Murder

Another fine mess Hanna Swensen finds herself in when she finds…yes another dead body.  One might wonder why a small Minnesota town like Lake Eden has so many murders or one can just enjoy the mystery.  A murder once again has Ms. Swensen and her cohorts on the trail of the killer.  I think that this novel didn’t quite have a “novel” ending as the criminal was somewhat predictable.  As usual the intensity and intrigue isn’t part of the formula for the Devil’s Food Cake Murder, but it is a very enjoyable read.  I truly look forward to each new edition by Joanne Fluke.

The love triangle between Hanna, Norman, and Mike takes a somewhat shocking twist at the end of the book.  It’s quite a cliffhanger…

As you may know, Ms. Fluke always includes recipes for some of the goodies mentioned in the story.  This one rated 2 on the recipes that I copied.
