Murder + Cheesecake = One Delicious Mystery

If you love to cook, eat, and curl up with a good, clean cozy mystery, read on.

New York Times bestselling Cozy Mystery author of over 20 novels in the Hannah Swensen Mysteries series joins us on the March Forth Media Co. Blog today, sharing her journey as an author, and announcing her delicious new novel, Triple Chocolate Cheesecake Murder (available on Amazon, independent bookstores, and anywhere amazing books are sold).

Born and raised in Minnesota, Joanne Fluke Joanne Fluke originally started writing as a child. She didn’t like the ending of a book her mother was reading to her, so she created an ending that she enjoyed more, and she continued writing from there. Now, as the author of many novels, she hopes that readers share equal enthusiasm for reading her work as she has for writing them.


Her “Hannah-Maniacs” continue to inspire her writing. She loves to receive recipes from fans, and hear stories about their “Moishe” and his antics. It is continued motivation, and Joanne finds inspiration and enthusiasm through them. As a baker myself, I have found so much enjoyment for Joanne’s work, and appreciate the recipes that are included in the series.


Her newest adventure, The Triple Chocolate Cheesecake Murder, Spring has sprung in Lake Eden, Minnesota, but Hannah doesn't have time to stop and smell the roses--not with hot cross buns to make, treats to bake, and a sister to exonerate! Hannah’s up to her ears with Easter orders rushing in at The Cookie Jar, plus a festive meal to prepare for a dinner party at her mother’s penthouse. Everything comes crashing to a halt when Hannah receives a panicked call from her sister Andrea—Mayor Richard Bascomb has been murdered . . . and Andrea is the prime suspect.


This fun new story from the Queen of Culinary Cozies is just the indulgence you need this winter! Cozy mystery fans know that a trip to The Cookie Jar—Hannah Swensen’s famous bakery—will always result in a delightfully page-turning whodunit!
