Strawberry Shortcake Murder (2001) Joanne Fluke (Hannah Swensen)

Strawberry Shortcake Murder

It doesn’t seem like 2001 was that long ago, but it was really a different world.

“Yes, Mother.” Hannah stretched out the phone cord and walked over to the cupboard that held Moishe’s food.

Once the warm-up was complete, Vera used Lucy’s mouse to click on the Internet provider icon. There was the sound of a dial tone and the number was dialed automatically with a series of musical beeps. There was a burst of static and another few beeps as Vera was connected.

This is the second Hannah Swensen book. I read a novella collection and decided to pick up the second book, as it’s a long running series and I didn’t want all the backstory and whatever that tends to come with a first book in a long running series. (I almost never Robert Parker’s Godwulf Manuscript. Spenser is an entirely different characters.)

The big draw for me with this book is that the main character is a baker who runs her own cookie / dessert shop. And the story pokes fun at the fact that it’s a small town with an already disconcertingly large number of murders.

It was a cute story, with lots of yummy baked goods, and since I got it on sale, I was pleased.
