Fan-adored author Joanne Fluke always satisfies the cravings of listeners who like their mysteries served with a sugary sweet confection. Hannah Swensen, like most women in Lake Eden, Minnesota, is not a fan of Ronni Ward - the man-stealing gym bunny. So when Ronni turns up lifeless in a Jacuzzi - accompanied by one of Hannah's cream puffs - the long list of suspects begins with Hannah.

Cream Puff Murder

Reviewed: 07-08-09

After reading other reviews of this book. I think that the others were perhaps a bit to harsh. I really enjoyed the book. It wasn't deep or particularly earth shattering, however it was a pleasant story and exactly what I was looking for when I downloaded the book. The story was a bit of a cream puff itself. Light and fluffy, with little substance, but delicious for a hot summer afternoon on the beach.

I will agree that the recipes were a little distracting, but it is easy to skip past. Actually I would have liked to have a text file with the book with the said recipes. I don't think the recipes within the book were distracting enough to take away from the overall book! Quit being so snobby, and enjoy light reading for what it is!

Anne Marie Roche wants to find happiness again.

On Valentine's Day, Anne Marie and several other widows get together to celebrate...what? Hope, possibility, the future. They each begin a list of 20 wishes. Anne Marie's list starts with "Find one good thing about life". It includes learning to knit, doing good for someone else, falling in love again.

She begins to act on her wishes, and when she volunteers at a local school, an eight-year-old girl named Ellen enters her life. It's a relationship that becomes far more involving than Anne Marie intended. It also becomes far more important than she ever imagined.

Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind.
