Shawna Lee Quinn has opened the Magnolia Blossom Bakery right across the street from Hannah’s own shop. As most people know, Hannah and Shawna are not friends. And if things don’t change soon, Hannah and Lisa might have to close their doors. Plus Mike is often spotted at Shawna’s, much to Hannah’s chagrin.
Shawna promises to bring her famous peach cobbler to Lisa and Herb’s wedding reception. Hannah is not happy, but tries not to think about it. Then Shawna doesn’t show up. When Hannah returns to her shop later, she notices lights on at Shawna’s. After calling and getting no answer, Hannah goes over to see if everything is okay at Shawna’s. She finds Shawna dead.
Knowing that everyone knows she didn’t like Shawna, Hannah realizes she is a suspect and had better investigate to find out who killed Shawna to clear herself. Lisa, Hannah’s sister and Hannah’s mother, along with Norman help her work to solve the murder. Most people were at the wedding with a great alibi. Who could have done it?
I always enjoy books in this series. Minnesota is a great location for this series. The characters are great. I love the love triangle of Hannah, Mike and Norman. Her friends and family are great and always keep the story hopping.
If you haven’t tried this series, I recommend you do, especially if you like food. One of these days I want to try one of the recipes. They sound wonderful. I highly recommend this book and the whole series. You might want to start at the beginning of the series if you haven’t read any so you can see the progression of the characters through the series.
