Publisher Comments:

As the rivalry between The Cookie Jar and the newly opened Magnolia Blossom Bakery escalates, Hannah Swensen soon finds herself a prime suspect when one of the new bakery's owners is found shot to death. Includes ten recipes.

Synopsis:

As she sits in her nearly empty store on Groundhog Day, Hannah can only hope that spring is just around the corner--and that the popularity of the new Magnolia Blossom Bakery is just a passing fad. The southern hospitality of Lake Eden's two Georgia transplants, Shawna Lee and Vanessa Quinn, is grating on Hannah's nerves--and cutting into her profits. At least Hannah has her business partner Lisa's wedding to look forward to. Unfortunately, Shawna Lee has finagled an invitation to the reception--and is bringing her Southern Peach Cobbler for the dessert table. Things go from bad to worse when Shawna Lee and Hannah's sometime-boyfriend, Detective Mike Kingston, are no-shows to the wedding. When Hannah sees lights on at the Magnolia Blossom Bakery after the reception, she investigates--and finds Shawna Lee shot to death. With a little help from her friends, Hannah's determined to track down whoever had the right ingredients to whip up a murder.

Ripe Peaches Drip Into Southern, Crusty-Cobbler. Freeze!

The opening scene of PEACH was a smiling grabber, of sneaking looks out the window spying on the new bakery competition. I could just about hear the stool being dragged by Lisa over to the window. And, Hanna's fluctuating frowns with attempts to stay positive were entertaining.

Tracey was adorable. She'd be a great ambassador. Reminded me of Sidney Sheldon's WINDMILLS OF THE GODS (of course his novels are darkly addicting instead of sweet and chewy). Loved the way Fluke "snapshot-ed" Lisa?s wedding scenes around a couple lines from the ceremony; it created a lovely effect. Hanna's dream wedding was a nice touch.

Loved the support and compliments Dolores gave to Hannah about the Peach Cobbler, and Dolores's change in old patterns by perfectly timing the phone call to Hannah while she was waiting for the con-artist lending institution with the nice guy quitting that day. Dolores was "there" yet not intrusive, pushy, or overly direct in her implied offer to help with the financial flukes. It was nice to see the cutting edge of Dolores mellow with her new love interest. Her daughters might end up growing to meet her, instead of the other way around, and it was fun to watch Hannah and Andrea's comical resistance to their Mom's "Regency" aristocrat.

What makes for comfortable reading in Fluke?s series is the collection of warm, cuddly ongoing characters & cat. The town itself is a real draw, along with it's (its) character residents. The whole ?kit?n kaboodle? is fun to return to. I know I'll have a ready ?in? waiting for greedy fingertips to open to the first page.

This book read as scrumptiously as dribbling hot almond butter over peach cobbler crust. It was definitely proof of a series author successfully reaching beyond each book with new releases. Fluke?s dialogue was more relaxed, descriptions more vivid and crisp, and characters were successfully stretching their struts in pleasant, upbeat ways.

The surprises in the final 3 pages couldn?t have been more delectable if the words had been written in dark chocolate ink.
