Cream Puff Murder

Book 11, A Hannah Swensen Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Bakery owner Hannah Swensen has a dress to fit into and a date with her sister, Andrea, at Lake Eden's new health club, Heavenly Bodies. Dragging herself out of bed on a frigid Minnesota morning for exercise, of all things, is bad enough. Discovering the body of man-eating bombshell Ronni Ward floating in the gym's jacuzzi? Okay, that's worse. Nor does it help that there's a plate of The Cookie Jar's very own cream puffs garnishing the murder scene.

Trying to narrow the list of Ronni's enemies down to fewer than half the town's female population, Hannah has her plate full. Trouble is, when it comes to cookies--and to murder--there's always room for one more. . .

"Foodie fans will eat up Fluke's cozy. . . A fluffy mix of sweets and suspense." --Publishers Weekly

"Entertaining and sprinkled with tempting recipes. It's a sweet treat of a novel." --The Star Tribune (Minneapolis, MN)

"A tasty treat." --Kirkus Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 26, 2009 – Foodie fans will eat up bestseller Fluke s 11th cozy to feature Hannah Swenson (after 2008 s Carrot Cake Murder). While exercising as part of a dieting program at Heavenly Bodies, Swenson, the owner of the Cookie Jar bakery and coffee shop in Lake Eden, Minn., meets Ronni Ward, a bitchy fitness instructor. Ronni has made many enemies, especially among Lake Eden s jealous wives and girlfriends of men way too attracted to the tart. When Hannah finds Ronni lifeless in the spa s Jacuzzi, Hannah s slay-dar her radar for finding murder victims proves once again on target; Ronni has received a fatal blow to the head. Hannah s heart gets a workout after her sometime boyfriend, Det. Mike Kingston, becomes a suspect. Dieting and digging for clues test Hannah s willpower in Fluke s fluffy mix of sweets and suspense. Recipes range from Mini Cheeseburger Cookies to Minty Melts.

Customer Reviews

I am gaining weight reading these delicious mysteries!

All of the "Murder, She Baked" (the Hallmark Channel TV movies based on these books) novels are GREAT. Joanna Fluke is an excellent writer with great characters that are loveable and human. Her plot twists are also unexpected and exciting. Of course, the best feature of the books is the recipes. I did the cake from "The Wedding Cake Murder" and it was such a hit I was asked to do it twice more. I have her cookbook now and plan to do many more of the recipes!
(but you WILL gain weight reading these, if, like me, you spend too much time reading them and eating the cookies and desserts you bake!)
