This is the first mystery I've read by Joanne Fluke and I truly enjoyed it. I can't wait to read more. I enjoy reading a series in order, so I've got to go back to number 1 in the Hannah Swensen Mystery series.
The Apple Turnover Murder is 13th in the series and it was full of great characters and a lot of cookies recipes. The recipes sounded so good I was hungry through the whole book!
Early summer brings plenty of work for baker Hannah Swensen, even before Mayor Bascomb's wife drops by The Cookie Jar to place an order for her charity event...For eleven-hundred cookies! And Hannah almost flips when her business partner, Lisa, suggests setting up an apple turnover stand.
But she places her faith in Lisa and agrees to be a magician's assistant in the fundraiser's talent show. The only snag is the show's host, college professor Bradford Ramsey. Hannah and her sister, Michelle, each had unfortunate romances with Ramsey, and when the cad comes sniffing around between acts, Hannah tells him off. When the curtain doesn't go up, she discovers Ramsey backstage - dead, with a turnover in his hand. Now Hannah must find a killer who's flakier than puff pastry - and far more dangerous.
