Devil’s Food Cake Murder By Joanne Fluke
Straight from the surefire pantry of New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Joanne Fluke, a classic cozy mystery in which baker Hannah Swensen discovers that sometimes life can be a little too sweet . . .
Hannah Swensen must admit that her life is pretty sweet. Things are going well in the romance department, and her bakery’s delectable confections are selling almost as fast as she can bake them. Even her good friend Claire is on cloud nine, head over heels with her new husband, Reverend Bob Knudson. If only they could find time to take their honeymoon!
When Bob’s childhood friend Matthew Walters comes to town, it seems like divine intervention. Matthew, like Bob, is a Lutheran minister with a stubborn sweet tooth. Since he’s on sabbatical, Matthew is happy to fill in for Bob while he and Claire take that long-awaited honeymoon. It sounds like the perfect plan—until Hannah finds Matthew dead in the rectory, face-down in a plate full of Devil’s Food Cake.
Determined to find out who killed Matthew, Hannah starts asking questions—and discovers that the good Reverend wasn’t quite the saintly fellow he appeared to be. It will take some more digging to find out, but Hannah is sure of one thing: even the most half-baked murder plot can be oh so deadly . . .
