Joanne Fluke’s “Christmas Caramel Murder”

christmas-caramel-murderChristmas normally descends on Lake Eden, Minnesota, as gently as reindeer alighting on a rooftop but this yuletide season the only thing coming down Hannah Swensen s chimney is a case of murder.

The holidays have arrived, and Hannah and her good pal Lisa have agreed to provide all the goodies for the town s annual production of A Christmas Carol. But before anyone can say Bah, humbug a Santa-sized sackful of trouble ensues. Like the fact that Lisa s husband will be playing Mr. Claus to his ex-girlfriend Phyllis Bates Mrs. Claus. Or that before the curtains even go up Phyllis is found dead in the snow wearing a costume that the real Mrs. Claus would put on the naughty list. Soon after the suspects pile up faster than snowdrifts in a blizzard, while a merry murderer remains on the loose. With clues even harder to find, it might take a visit from ghosts of Christmas past to wrap up this mystery in time for the holidays.

Includes a Dozen Holiday Recipes from The Cookie Jar.

About the Author

joanne-fluke_Like Hannah Swensen, Joanne Fluke grew up in a small town in rural Minnesota where her neighbors were friendly, the winters were fierce, and the biggest scandal was the spotting of unidentified male undergarments on a young widow’s clothesline. She insists that there really are 10,000 lakes and the mosquito is NOT the state bird.

While pursuing her writing career, Joanne has worked as: a public school teacher, a psychologist, a musician, a private detective’s assistant, a corporate, legal, and pharmaceutical secretary, a short order cook, a florist’s assistant, a caterer and party planner, a computer consultant on a now-defunct operating system, a production assistant on a TV quiz show, half of a screenwriting team with her husband, and a mother, wife, and homemaker.

She now lives in Southern California with her husband, her kids, his kids, their three dogs, one elderly tabby, and several noisy rats in the attic.
