Then Uncle Gus is murdered following a big family reunion, and the only clues to be found at the crime scene are two slices of Hannah’s infamous carrot cake.
American author Joanne Fluke has written several works using pen names. Her given, actual name, is Joanne Gibson Fischmann, born in 1943 in Swanvile, Minnesota.

Fluke attended St. Cloud State University, and earned a B.A. Degree in psychology in 1973 from California State University. She had several second jobs while she worked at building her writing career, but her most important titles were mother, wife and homemaker. She lives in Southern California with her television writer husband, Ruel E. Fischmann, her children and step-children.
Now I KNOW Ms. Flukes books are getting repetitious I cant even remember if I read this one based on the description! This series started out well, but clearly the author is out of steam and ideas. If youve read one, youve read them all. Even the recipes are retreads of earlier recipies! Time for Hannah to hang up her apron.
