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.

Cream Puff Murder

Cream Puff MurderJoanne Fluke’s Hannah Swensen finds another body in her small hometown of Lake Eden, Minnesota.  This time the victim in not well liked in the town and Hannah, her sisters, and about half the town takes the “case” to solve the crime.  As usual, the novel centers around Swensen’s cookie business and there are lots of references to her cookies.
