Carrot Cake Murder by Joanne Fluke

Another delectable Hannah Swenson mystery. This time Hannah’s business partner Lisa, and her husband Herb, have planned a huge family reunion. And when long lost Uncle Gus arrives, and is this murdered, Hannah is asked to solve the mystery.

I enjoy these books, as they’re a nice cozy mystery with recipes thrown in. I am finding them to be a bit formulaic, and I was able to solve the mystery before Hannah did, which usually isn’t the case. I was glad to finally get Hannah’s recipe for Salmon Cakes, which have been made before in previous books. I think these could stand alone because there’s not too much that carries from one book to the next, they really don’t seem to build on each other. (i’m still categorizing this as a mystery series though). The one ongoing storyline is Hannah’s love triangle with nice guy dentist Norman, and hunky cop Mike. And not much happened to move that story forward during this book.

But all in all a nice diversion for the weekend.
