Hurricanes. Wildfires. Crazy politics. Are you ready for a break?

I’ve got just the thing for you.

WARNING: Chick lit ahead.

I took a couple of Hannah Swensen mysteries with me on my recent trip to Berlin, and I’m hooked. Hannah lives in the small town of Lake Eden, Minnesota. When she’s not running her bakery, she’s running around town solving the latest murder. (So much for small town safety!)

Joanne Fluke’s writing is perfect for the long nights ahead. Her books are entertaining without being gory or salacious. In fact, the only thing that might scare you is how much sugar Hannah uses in her recipes. Yes – there are actual baking recipes included. But that’s part of the appeal!

Hallmark Movies & Mysteries has adopted the Hannah Swensen series as “Murder, She Baked,” but make sure you add one of Fluke’s books to your Fall book bag. You’ll be charmed.
