Raspberry Danish Murder by Joanne Fluke


Thanksgiving has a way of thawing the frostiest hearts in Lake Eden. But that won’t be happening for newlywed Hannah Swensen Barton—not after her husband suddenly disappears…

Hannah has felt as bitter as November in Minnesota since Ross vanished without a trace and left their marriage in limbo. Still, she throws herself into a baking frenzy for the sake of pumpkin pie and Thanksgiving-themed treats while endless holiday orders pour into The Cookie Jar. Hannah even introduces a raspberry Danish pastry to the menu, and P.K., her husband’s assistant at KCOW-TV, will be one of the first to sample it. But instead of taking a bite, P.K., who is driving Ross’s car and using his desk at work, is murdered. Was someone plotting against P.K. all along or did Ross dodge a deadly dose of sweet revenge? Hannah will have to quickly sift through a cornucopia of clues and suspects to stop a killer from bringing another murder to the table.

Raspberry Danish Murder is the 22nd book in the Hannah Swensen series. This series needs to be read in order to understand the characters, their lives, and what is going on in the town of Lake Eden.

In Raspberry Danish Murder, Hannah’s husband Ross is missing. She’s worried about him, so she throws herself into her work. Ross’s coworker P.K. is filling in for Ross, using his office and driving his car. When P.K. dies mysteriously, Hannah looks into his death to determine if it was related to Ross’s disappearance. Along the way, Hannah learns some new things about her husband.

These cozy mysteries are light and entertaining. A fast read that’s good for fans of cozies. Plus, recipes are included for the mouthwatering treats they mention in the story.
