Release date: February 26, 2013 | Series: Hannah Swensen Mysteries
It’s a hot summer evening in Lake Eden, Minnesota – and the Grand Opening of the refurbished Albion Hotel. Hannah Swensen’s famous Red Velvet cupcakes are being served in the new Red Velvet lounge. The party starts off with a bang with the arrival of Doctor Bev, who left town in shame after she two-timed her fiance. But the gossip comes to a screeching halt when another partygoer takes a dive off the hotel’s rooftop garden. As the police investigate, the only one who isn’t preoccupied with the case is Doctor Bev. She’s too busy trying to stir things up with her old flame Norman, who’s reunited with Hannah. Just as Hannah’s patience with Bev runs thin, her rival is found dead at the bottom of Miller’s Pond. To everyone’s shock, Hannah is now the target of a murder investigation – and she’s feeling the heat in a way she never has before…
I enjoyed this book much more than the last few in the series because even though things were chaotic there didn’t seem to be as much drama for drama’s sake. The recipes included in each book are a bonus and I’m going to try a couple of the latest ones. A great easy Summer read.
