      Summary: Cherry enthusiast Whitney Bloom is furiously baking her way into the heart of Chicago with her fabulous cherry pies when she receives a desperate call from her mother. The annual Cherry Blossom Festival has just kicked off at the Cherry Orchard Inn in Door County, Wisconsin, and the manager of the Bloom family orchard has been found dead beneath the cherry blossoms. Worse yet, all evidence points to Whitney's father as the killer. After she races home to help, things really land in the pits for Whitney when she discovers that Jack MacLaren, her old high school nemesis, is Cherry Cove's only police officer. Putting her cherry-tastic treats on hold, Whitney matches wits against Jack. But will she have what it takes to clear her father's name and sift out the real Cherry Cove killer?

Booklist Reviews 2018 May #1

Fired from her dream job at an ad agency after her rather unfortunate commercial aired during the Super Bowl, Whitney Bloom now runs an online cherry pie bakery, Bloom 'n' Cherries! She quickly heads home to her family's inn and cherry orchard in Cherry Cove, Wisconsin, when she learns the orchard's manager was found murdered, and her hot-tempered father is the chief suspect. Jack MacLaren, her high-school nemesis, is the only police officer in town, so Whitney, along with her two best friends, decides to investigate to clear her father and save the family business. Complicating matters, her cheating former boyfriend, Tate, would like a second chance, and Whitney is beginning to become attracted to Jack, not to mention her anonymous online crush. Whitney is a well-drawn, sympathetic character, and the small-town frame, with a close-knit community and a cherry orchard, will appeal to cozy readers who enjoy Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swensen mysteries. Unfortunately, recipes for the delicious-sounding cherry baked goods are not included. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

Chicago baker Whitney Bloom, the narrator of Hannah's diverting if flawed first novel and series launch, rushes back to her hometown of Cherry Cove, Wis., after receiving a phone call from her distraught mother. The annual Cherry Blossom Festival, held at the Bloom family's Cherry Orchard Inn, is in jeopardy because the orchard manager, Jeb Carlson, has been murdered—and the chief suspect is Whitney's father. Unfortunately, Whitney's high school nemesis, Jack McLaren, who's grown into quite the male specimen, is now the police detective handling the investigation, and he isn't going to make proving her dad's innocence any easier for Whitney. The book has a good basic story, but too many actions border on the ridiculous; for example, when Whitney grabs a hunting dog she's never seen before and tries to pry open its jaws, fearing the animal just ate some poisoned pie, the dog doesn't bark or bite her. Hannah displays enough talent to suggest she'll do better next time. (June)
