Hannah Swensen’s eighteenth adventure in Lake Eden, Minnesota, begins with a suspicious accident at the opening of a refurbished hotel—Hannah’s famous red-velvet cupcakes are being served in the hotel’s new Red Velvet Lounge. After police-department secretary Barbara, a recurring series character, falls off the roof during the party, Barbara insists her brother pushed her, but no one is aware that she had any siblings. Then Hannah finds the fiancée of one of her former boyfriends at the bottom of a lake and becomes a suspect. Although Hannah’s infallibility defies belief and tries patience, Fluke continues to appeal with delicious recipes and warm, small-town personalities. Series readers will enjoy following the continuing story, and, of course, fans of cupcake-themed mysteries by Jenn McKinlay will savor those red-velvet treats. --Amy Alessio --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

During a special dinner to introduce the building to residents, the beloved secretary from the Sheriff's office falls from the penthouse garden. While it isn't a murder, Hannah pursues it as doggedly as an attempted murder. Then, when there IS a body found, Hannah is listed as the prime suspect in the murder. Hannah will need to clear her name AND solve both incidents promptly, before she has to spend a night in jail.

Funny Story: I had a great time when i tried to put this book's narrative in my head, it's completely descriptive!
Final thoughts: This is a solid entry into the series, I've said it before, but i have enjoyed the intrigue and the idea that hannah was suspected for a short time.
What IS starting to annoy me IS the fact that Fluke ages Hannah by about 40 years in her books...pantsuits, pantyhose, everyone dressing "matchy matchy", etc. It is overkill and seems to be getting worse as the books go on. Not enough to make me stop reading, but enough to make me roll my eyes and shake my head....and the murderers are more and more predictable....usually by the 2nd or 3rd chapter I've figured out who dunnit.
But after reading dense text books for 10 weeks, this is a nice way to have some fun reading!
She helps the reader to envision Lake Eden Minnesota both in the summer & the dreaded winter, and all the customers who come in to her store. There's even romance for Hannah & her mom, Delores. Something for everyone!! I can hardly wait for the next installment!
