Bakery owner Hannah Swensen just can't keep her hands out of the batter when murder stirs things up in Lake Eden, Minnesota, leaving the sheriff dead, a deputy accused, and a killer on the loose. . . For Hannah, life seems to be lacking a certain flavor lately. Maybe it's the local sheriff's election that's got her down. For years, Sheriff Grant's been the iron hand in town. But now, Hannah's brother-in-law Bill is giving the old blowhard the fight of his long, dubious career--and Grant's not taking it well, especially once the polls show Bill pulling ahead. But before anyone can taste victory, things go sour. While Hannah's emptying the trash, she makes a very unappetizing discovery: Sheriff Grant's body in the Dumpster behind the high school where she's teaching her cooking class. And as if that weren't bad enough, the poor man still has fudge frosting on his shirt from one of her cupcakes. The number one--and only--suspect is Bill, but Hannah's not swallowing it. Plenty of people had reason to hate Sheriff Grant. Soon, Hannah's dishing up scandalous secrets, steaming hot betrayals, and enough intrigue to keep the gossip mill at The Cookie Jar going through several pots of decaf. And the closer Hannah gets to the truth, the closer she gets to smoking out a murderer with a very nasty recipe for silencing people. . .

Reviewed from a Nook (Barnes and Noble) e-book. As with the previous books in this series, Fudge Cupcake includes several recipes sprinkled between chapters. Some enjoy them, some test them, and others (like me) page through them. While working with a group of women from Lake Eden to test recip...
As always, reading this series is like eating a favorite confection from your childhood - fun, maybe a bit fluffy, down-home, and familiar.I applaud Joanne Fluke for developing characters who are the back-bone of the stories. The main characters are well-developed enough to deepen and mellow as the ...
The killer was pretty obvious. I'm starting to not like either of Hannah's men. Norman lacks fire and Mike doesn't support Hannah like he should. He started to do better in book 4, but he resorted back to an idiot in this book. If he spent more time with Hanna then perhaps she wouldn't almost get he...
I loved book 5 just like the others. Norman and Mike are just as great as the last book and poor Hannah is going to have to make a decision soon unless more murders come in to play. I am looking forward to book 6. Joanne Fluke knows how to write a good mystery.
Not the best book. Took me forever to get interested enough to actually finish it.
