Description: New York Times bestselling author Joanna Fluke never fails to satisfy readers’ appetite for intriguing culinary mysteries—and delicious recipes. In the latest installment of her Hannah Swensen mystery Series, the beloved baker and sleuth may have bitten off more than she can chew.
It’s June in Lake Eden, Minnesota, and for Hannah Swensen that means bridal showers galore, plus a massive fundraising event in need of confections. Hannah almost flips when her business partner, Lisa, suggests setting up an apple turnover stand. But, pushover that she is, she places her faith in Lisa’s mother-in-law’s recipe and agrees to be a magician’s assistant in the fundraiser’s talent show.
Dozens of pastries and one hideous purple dress later, Hannah has to admit that stepping out of her comfort zone has been fun as well as profitable. The only snag is the show’s host, community college professor Bradford Ramsey. Hannah and her youngest sister Michelle each had unfortunate relationships with Ramsey, and when the cad is discovered backstage—dead as a doornail with a turnover in his hand—it’s up to Hannah to uncover a killer who’s flakier than puff pastry, and far more dangerous.
