Double Fudge Brownie Murder (Hannah Swensen #18) by Joanne Fluke

Hannah has to go court.  She was driving down a country road in high winds and rain and attempted to drive around a downed tree.  She made it but while doing it, she ran over a body at the side of the road.  The DA has decided to charge with her vehicular manslaughter.  Her attorney tells her there is no case against her but it doesn't feel like that to Hannah.

Kensington Books sent me an ARC of this book for review (thank you).  It will be published this month, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

The judge has called Hannah and her lawyer to meet with him.  They are to wait until he's ready for them.  Her lawyer goes out to take a cell phone call and she hears a strange noise in the judge's chamber.  She leaves the lawyer to his call and opens the door to check on the judge.  Yep, you guessed it.  Hannah has found another body...

Her cop boyfriend, Mike, tells her she's on his list of suspects.  The judge had dismissed her case, but she didn't know that at the time.  She gets a bit irritated at him because he knows she didn't do it but she can't argue over the point.  She had access to him.

Norman is still around and still has moon struck eyes for her.  He's mellow and hugs good and has a cat that's compatible with hers.  Both men would like to marry her but she's resisted so far.

Hannah and her sisters are going on a private jet to Las Vegas where the her mother and her new love will be marrying.  This is the doctor's idea to avoid the big wedding and the girls aren't sure how Mom is going to like it.  Fortunately, she does.

What Hannah didn't expect was the best man.  He's another love interest that she hasn't seen for a long time.  She's still attracted by him and he seems mutually interested.  It seems Mom was doing a bit of match making.

There are lots of new recipes in the book and by the end of the story, Hannah has received three marriage proposals all in the same day.  She thinks she's decided but Hannah isn't reliable in the men department.  I'm waiting for the next book to see what really happens.
