Cinnamon Roll Murder
Kensington Publishing Corporation, Feb 28, 2012 - 304 pages
With the Cinnamon Roll Six jazz band heading toward Lake Eden for the Weekend Jazz Festival, Hannah Swensen is more than happy to bake up a generous supply of their namesake confections. But tragedy strikes when the band's tour bus overturns on its way into town. Among those injured is Buddy Neiman, the band's beloved keyboard player. At first, Buddy's injuries appear minor, until his condition suddenly takes a turn for the worse--as in dead. Hannah's no doctor, but she suspects that the surgical scissors jutting out of Buddy's chest may have something to do with it.
Turns out Buddy Neiman isn't the victim's real name. In fact, no one is really sure who he is, or what secrets may be lurking in his past. Hannah isn't sure just how she'll unravel this mystery, but there's nothing sweeter than bringing a killer to justice. . .
"Joanne Fluke is the doyenne of deadly desserts with her deliciously popular Hannah Swensen series." --"Publishers Weekly"
"Fans will be eagerly awaiting the next installment." --"Booklist"

What ruined this book for me was the dialogue between two characters planning to perpetuate fraud by calling "Sammy" a service dog so they could take him to work and into restaurants. No way I'll support an author who would suggest this to readers as it demonstrates a lack of integrity as well as insensitivity to persons with disabilities who rely on service dogs to assist them.
