It's Friday, which means Book Club!
This week I'm reviewing the next book in the Hannah Swenson series.
Early summer brings plenty of work for baker Hannah Swense, even before Mayor Bascomb's wife drops by the The Cookie Jar to place an order for her charity event. . . for eleven hundred cookies! And Hannah almost flips when her business partner, Lisa, suggests setting up an apple turnover stand. But she places her faith in Lisa and agrees to be a magician's assistant in the fundraiser's talent show. The only snag is the show's host, college professor Bradford Ramsey. Hannah and her sister, Michelle, each had unfortunate romances with Ramsey, and when the cad comes sniffing around between acts, Hannah tells him off. But when the curtain doesn't go up, she discovers Ramsey backstage - dead, with a turnover in his hand. Now Hannah must find a killer who's flakier than puff pastry - and far more dangerous.
This novel was interesting because the victim has a personal connection to Hannah, and she was the last person to see him alive! Nothing new on the Mike front, but we have a not so pleasant surprise on the Norman front. I'm a little tired of the romance triangle and wish Hannah would just pick. I suppose I'm just becoming disenchanted with the series.
(On a side note, I started Game of Thrones, and while it will take me awhile to read, I am really enjoying it so far!)
