Cinnamon Roll Murder by Joanne Fluke

Book Blurb:  April is a busy time for Hannah Swensen and her bakery; the warm weather makes folks in Lake Eden, Minnesota go wild for something sweet. When Hannah hears that the Cinnamon Roll Six jazz band will be playing at the town's Weekend Jazz Festival, she's more than happy to bake up a generous supply of their namesake confections to welcome the band to town. Before the festival even begins, tragedy strikes when the tour bus overturns. Among those injured is Buddy Neiman, the band's beloved keyboard player. Buddy's injuries appear minor, until his condition suddenly takes a turn for the worse - as in dead. Hannah's no doctor, but she suspects that the surgical scissors someone plunged into Buddy's chest may have something to do with it. Hannah isn't sure just how she'll unravel the mystery, but one thing's for sure: nothing's sweeter than bringing a killer to justice.

My Review:   I LOVE LOVE this series!  This is book fifteen and every time I read her books I want to get into the kitchen and bake!  I Love the fact that as your are reading and she is making cookies in the bakery or at home,  the recipe to what she is making is there for you to try along with her footnotes on what works best.   I think out this book I want to try and make her Sinco de Cocoa Cookies..AKA  Chocolate Avocado Cookies...Don't those sound wonderful?

After the fifteenth book, it just feels like you Hannah and her family are your friends too.  I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes a good mystery and one who likes to bake!   If you are interested, in this series then you may want to start with the first book so you can get to know the characters.   The first book in the series is called:
