Strawberry Shortcake Murders review and other tibets

I have been listening to Strawberry Shortcake Murder by Joanne Fluke. This is the 2nd book in her Hannah Swensen series. Hannah owns the town cookie shop and her cookies/recipes make mouth water!! The book comes with recipes so that you can make the cookies she talks about in her story. In this book, the town is hosting a baking contest and Hannah is helping run the contest. One of the judges winds up murdered in his garage and Hannah has to help solve the case. There is a love triangle between Hannah, Eric- the local police and Norman -the dentist. I am enjoying listening/reading this series. The first book is called The Chocolate Chip mystery. If you are looking for a new series there are 12 books in this one and I am hoping that each one gets better and better!!
Today, I took my mom to the airport. As of right now she is flying to New Delhi India for a 2 week visit with my sister and her family. She called me from the Big Plane in Chicago letting me know she got on the right plane and would be arriving in New Delhi in 15 hours!!! Can you believe that??? 15 hours!!!
I also figured out that if your Shark Steam mop quits can put CLR (calicum, lime and rust) cleaner in it and let it sit plugged in for about 10-15 minutes. Give it a few pumps during this time...and it will start steaming again. Mine quit steaming after 3 months, I used this and a big black clog came out and it steams better than when I first got it!!! Just an FYI....
