After reading my first Hannah Swnson mystery, I must admit that I am hooked on these cute books by Joanne Fluke.
Strawberry Shortcake Murder is the 2nd book in the Hannah Swenson series, it is light, an easy read and perfect for a cold winter night. This book has not one, but two murders in the plot.
A baking competition is under way and one of the judges, a local high school coach is murdered. The cops think the case is pretty open and close considering this man has been known to beat up his wife, but Hannah knows her friend, the battered wife didn't do it. She investigates privately and discovers that not only is someone in the community a murderer, but someone else is also blackmailing the residents of her small town.
This mystery left me guessing up until close to the end of the book. It also entertained me and left me longing for another Hannah Swenson mystery to follow. It is official I am hooked!
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to bake, as it has several great recipes inside, as well as anyone who likes a light mystery.
