Christmas Cupcake Murder
Sugary. If you haven’t packed on extra covid weight in 2020, consider baking from the recipes as you read the 26th installment in Joanne Fluke’s mystery series featuring baker Hannah Swensen, a novel titled, Christmas Cupcake Murder. While I find almost every recipe far too sugary for my taste (as are the recurring characters), you might find something here that matches your taste. In a departure from the formula in earlier novels in this series, Hannah doesn’t find herself in peril, there’s no murder, and the setting moves to a much earlier time period than most of the recent novels in the series. Longtime fans will have a hard time figuring out just what time period this is, since there are continuity problems that may distract close readers. If you like to spend time with nice small town people who eat a lot of sweets, this book and this series will be a delight for you to read.
