Cover: 'Coconut Layer Cake Murder'

Staff Review: "Coconut Layer Cake Murder" by Joanne Fluke


Hannah Swensen is back in her latest adventure!  Hannah is on vacation when she is called back to Minnesota to help her sister Michelle’s boyfriend, Lonnie, who has been accused of murder. Detective Lonnie Murphy had spent a night out with his high-school friends, only for one of them to end up dead. Unfortunately, Lonnie only remembers part of the disastrous night. Hannah enlists the help of her friends and family as she tries to exonerate Lonnie for murder. Hannah cooks and bakes her way through her list of witnesses and suspects to uncover the real murderer.

If you are a fan of cozy mysteries, you will enjoy this light, fast-paced story set in small-town Minnesota. The main characters are helpful, kind, and a bit too curious. As a bonus, this book is full of recipes!
