In her newest novel Red Velvet Cupcake Murder, the summer has been warmer than usual in Lake Eden, Minnesota, and Hannah Swensen is trying to beat the heat both in and out of her bakery kitchen, but she's about to find out the hard way that nothing cools off a hot summer day like cold-blooded murder. The victim is the sheriff's secretary, Barbara Donnelly, and she is barely clinging to life. The question is, did she fall—or was she pushed? 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. Joanne Fluke will be in the store to read and sign books.
