Red Velvet Cupcake Murder by Joanne Fluke

Hannah Swenson just has a talent for finding dead bodies.  She's already found more than her fair share and now she's being accused of murdering her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend.

Kensington sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It's been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

Hannah is a great cook and everyone around her is experimenting with new recipes and sharing them.  Now if she could just cook up a romance and decide on which man she wanted to pursue, it'd be great.  She's fond of both Norm and Mike and she hasn't committed to either yet.  When Doctor Bev breezes back into town, Hannah feels threatened by her.  Bev was Norman's fiance for a while.  

She doesn't have much time to dwell on that, though, because the sheriff's secretary gets shoved off the top floor of the new hotel and almost dies.  While she's wondering who did that to Barbara, Bev dies in a pond.  However, she didn't drown...

There is plenty of action, the romance angle is interesting, and the murderer is no one I suspected.  Why not see if you can figure out how to save Hannah from failed romances and a murder charge before the end of the book? 

Happy reading.
