CREAM PUFF MURDER
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth
Bakery shop owner Hannah Swensen is a down-to-earth character with a generous heart and a quick wit. Add that to the dessert recipes included in each chapter, and this makes for a fun read! The novel is filled with details about Hannah's family and other chatty bits about her neighbors. Mostly the reflections are entertaining, but at times the pace feels a bit slow. The murder doesn't take place until Chapter 10, when the story really picks up.

One suspect is Hannah's boyfriend, part-time police officer Mike Kingston. Things heat up when Hannah and Mike attempt to prove Mike's innocence. (KENSINGTON, Mar., 310 pp., $24.00)
