Triple Chocolate Cheesecake

 This is the 27th book in the Hannah Swensen series by Joanne Fluke.  Amazingly, the books still manage to maintain original plots and develop character relationships as the series progresses.   This installment actually centers around a very unlikely victim and Hannah's family is in the center of the investigation yet again.   There are several good plot twists and a fairly surprising ending.  I appreciated the development of the character of Stephanie Bascombe.  She is portrayed as more than just a victim and her motivations and relationships with her husband are explored.   The book does a wonderful job of portraying strong women but also showing the importance of their relationships with other women and the men in their lives.  I look forward to reading the next book in the series whenever it is published.
