Apple Turnover Murder
by Joanne Fluke

Excerpt

Swensen Finds Another Body

She’s done it again! During intermission at the Lake Eden Combined Charities talent show, Hannah Swensen, Lake Eden Cookie master and sometime sleuth, discovered the body of Professor Bradford Ramsey, the show’s master of ceremonies. Swensen was backstage because she had had appeared as The Amazing Herb's assistant in the act preceding intermission.

Not one of the 300 attendees enjoying coffee and apple turnovers in the lobby of the Jordan High auditorium was aware that violence had erupted only a few feet away on the darkened stage. It was not until sixteen minutes after the second act was scheduled to start that Detective Mike Kingston announced that the host of the talent show had been murdered.

It's common knowledge that Swensen has assisted the authorities in solving a record number of murder cases. When I attempted to interview her at The Cookie Jar, Swensen's bakery and coffee shop in Lake Eden, she said, "Of course I'll help the sheriff's department in any way I can, but I prefer to leave crime solving to the professionals.”

I contacted Joanne Fluke, author of the NY Times bestselling mystery series featuring Hannah Swensen, and asked her if Hannah was going to refrain from investigating this latest homicide. When she finished laughing, Fluke said that she is already writing about Hannah's involvement in Apple Turnover Murder, to be released in hardcover by Kensington Books in March 2010. Fluke’s books are well known for their delicious recipes (Apple Turnover Murder has 21!) and she confided that one of Hannah's apple turnovers was found at the murder scene.

Joanne Fluke has been writing about Hannah Swensen since her culinary mystery series debuted in 1999. With delectable titles like Cream Puff Murder, Key Lime Pie Murder, and Fudge Cupcake Murder, Fluke may have to add warning labels to the covers of her books for anyone who’s on a diet.
