Hannah Swensen Mystery Series, Book 19
Borrow Borrow Borrow
Everyone in Lake Eden, Minnesota, may have had their doubts, but at long last, Hannah Swensen is getting married!
Hannah is thrilled to be marrying Ross Barton, her college crush. And her excitement only grows when she learns he'll be able to join her on her trip to New York City for the Food Channel's dessert chef contest. They get a taste of the Big Apple before Hannah wins the Hometown Challenge and the producers bring all the contestants to Lake Eden to tape the remainder of the show. It's nerve-wracking enough being judged by Alain Duquesne, a celebrity chef with a nasty reputation. But it's even more chilling to find him stabbed to death in the Lake Eden Inn's walk-in cooler—before he's even had a chance to taste Hannah's Butterscotch Sugar Cookies! Now Hannah has not only lost her advantage, she'll have to solve a mystery with more layers than a five-tiered wedding cake...

    December 21, 2015
    Bestseller Fluke’s frothy 19th Hannah Swensen Mystery (after 2015’s Double Fudge Brownie Murder) finds the guileless Lake Eden, Minn., baker both a bride to be and a contestant in the Food Channel’s Dessert Chef Competition. Her meddlesome mother, Delores, has assumed the role of wedding planner, leaving Hannah free to focus on her confections, but when head judge and celebrity chef Alain Duquesne is murdered midcontest and her sister, Michelle, finds the body, Hannah feels honor-bound to catch his killer. Readers in search of a fair-play whodunit may deem Hannah’s latest adventure dissatisfying; Fluke back-burners the mystery in favor of the cooking competition and Hannah’s impending nuptials, and the book features more recipes than suspects or clues. The plot relies too heavily on coincidence, but Fluke’s cast is lively and winsome enough to carry the tale, and long-standing fans will likely forgive any flaws for the chance to see romantic flip-flopper Hannah finally walk down the aisle. Author tour. Agent: Meg Ruley, Jane Rotrosen Agency.

    Even in the world of desserts, competition can be murder, as Hannah Swensen discovers on the eve of her nuptials. Having ditched both of her longtime suitors for former college sweetheart Ross Barton (Double Fudge Brownie Murder, 2015), Hannah has nothing left to do but marry the guy. Before she walks down the aisle, though, she's scheduled to appear on the Food Channel's Dessert Chef Competition, pitted against seasoned restaurateurs like Gloria Berkeley, Brooke Jackman, Loren Berringer, and Rodney Paloma. Her upcoming marriage is a plus, allowing her to wow judges Jeremy Zales, LaVonna Brach, Helene Stone, and Christian Parker with her Double Rainbow Swirl Cake while sporting her bridal veil. Even hard case Alain Duquesne melts a little at her Magic White Chocolate Souffle. But Hannah's luck on the cooking show does nothing to diminish her corpse magnetism, and sooner or later--actually it feels like much later--she's staring down at another dead body. Technically it's her sister, Michelle, who makes the grisly discovery, but the result is the same: Hannah's just got to investigate. Unlike former flames Norman and Mike, Ross doesn't even try to convince her to keep her floury nose where it belongs. The result is predictable. Hannah asks one question too many, and then it's a close thing whether death do her part from Ross even before they manage to tie the knot. Since the interplay between Hannah and Ross has even less sex appeal than the Baking Conversion Chart at the end of the volume, any interest in whether they do finally get hitched is strictly pro forma. At least there are 22 recipes.

    Hannah's wedding day is here at last! Groom Ross Barton is just the right counterbalance to Hannah's roller-coaster sleuthing and baking life. However, before the festivities commence, Hannah participates in a TV celebrity chef baking competition. She and her sister, Michelle, feel out of their depth. After all, the Cookie Jar in Lake Eden, MN, is not exactly New York City. Then, chef Alain Duquesne, the contest's judge, is murdered. Still, the show must go on, so Hannah and Michelle investigate while prepping for the contest. VERDICT Fans' romantic expectations for Hannah and Ross culminate in the 19th volume (after Double Fudge Brownie Murder) of the long-running series. Everyone's favorite chef gives us over 20 recipes, including her wedding confection, Double Rainbow Swirl cake. Expect huge demand.
