NEW BOOK: Pink Lemonade Cake Murder by Joanne Fluke. The Tri-County Summer Solstice Celebration has come to town, and even among local artisans, athletes, and marching bands, Hannah attracts fans of her own while serving lip-smacking pink lemonade desserts. However, the mood sours when a body turns up, leading revelers to wonder if the festivities mark both the longest day of the year and the deadliest… A retired professional MLB player has met a terrifying end, and considering the rumors swirling about his past, the list of suspects could fill a small stadium. Among them could soon be Delores, Hannah’s mother, who publically held a grudge against the victim after he infamously dunked her in the tank at a previous county fair… Now, with her mother’s innocence on the line, a life-changing announcement at The Cookie Jar, and a plethora of desserts to bake, Hannah cannot afford to strike out as she begins a dangerous investigation into the ruthless killer who is truly in a league of their own.
