Summary

Spring has sprung in Lake Eden, Minnesota, but Hannah Swensen 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. But 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. 

Even with his reputation for being a bully, Mayor Bascomb - or “Ricky Ticky”, as Hannah’s mother likes to call him - had been unusually testy in the days leading up to his death, leaving Hannah to wonder if he knew he was in danger. Meanwhile, folks with a motive for mayoral murder are popping up in Lake Eden. Was it a beleaguered colleague? A political rival? A jealous wife? Or a scorned mistress? 

As orders pile up at The Cookie Jar - and children line up for Easter egg hunts - Hannah must spring into investigation mode and identify the real killer...before another murder happens!

Triple Chocolate Cheesecake

I really wanted to like this book, but, no. The characters were more one dimensional than usual, the plot was too simple, and, the ending predictable. The one saving grace was Suzanne Toren. Farewell Hannah,and, all at the coffee shop, it is time to part company.

Pretty Good But I was Annoyed

This book was good but not at all my favorite from Joann Fluke. I really like the Hannah Swenson stories but the Suspicious mind and logical mind banter was simply annoying to me!

Disappointed

I love this series, so I was excited. But the quality of the books has been going down lately.

Too much of the suspicious vs rational mind. Too much of Hannah acting dumb. Too much of Hannah sleeping in the books, if she was depressed, address it already. I think it would be awesome to have an established character go into therapy. Also, just let Norman either get a yes from Hannah or have him move on.
He is too nice for her.

The other thing that disappointed me was the recipes. I listen to 10 minutes of stories, then 15 minutes of recipies. If you want to write another cookbook, Joanne Fluke, then go write one. Try to remember that you are writing a mystery series as well.

I don't know, everyone. I think Hannah Swensen might be nearing the end.

Worst book ever

Her suspicious and unsuspicious mind should have told the author not to write this book. I have bought everyone if Joanne Flukes books in this series. The whole plot took up one chapter. The rest was a cookbook with nonsense thrown in. Don’t waste your money. The narrator was also awful this time. If you just listened to the voices and weren’t told who was speaking you would never guess who it was. Everyone sounded the same. It’s time to give up writing if this is what you’re going to produce.

Same old same old

I was hoping this book would get back to more actual detecting and less eating and coffee drinking. Unfortunately, there was more eating and coffee drinking than anything else. This will probably be my last Hannah book.

Anticipation disappointment

I await each one of these books to come out because the Character build has been so great you can’t wait to find out what’s going on with everyone but the banter overtook ever chapter and so much inner self I was losing interest and I couldn’t believe that , I’m still glad I used a credit to purchase overall .

Disappointing

I got this one right away because the other ones were so good. I don’t know what happened with this one;?author was on deadline or what but the majority of this book—and I don’t mean a page or two-whole chapters are all recipes. The story was predictable and lackluster.

Hannah is going crazy

What is with Hannah's inner dialogue? The constant rational side vs suspicious side thing was tolerable when it was only occasionally. Now its at least once a chapter, referring to herself in the third person and takes up a quarter of the chapter. The chapter break down is 1/4th Hannah thinking in the third person, 1/4th to 1/8th actually story, 1/2 to 1/3rd recipe walkthrough.
Story was a bit more back to original Hannah story despite that breakdown. Wish she would just pick Norman or move out of his house. She's been coming off as selfish since she turned down both marriage proposals from Mike and Norman and dragging it out for years (or months depending on the inconsistency of the story plot lines). She at least only seemed to have a friend type relationship with Mike in this book and referred to only Norman as her boyfriend. So, progress. There's only so much will she wont she that is tolerable and that was passed a long time ago.

disappointing

the entire book is coffee and new recipes except for the last two chapters. Not much mystery or story line. sadly I was hoping for a true Fluke adventure.

Is Hannah losing it?

I have read/listened to all of the Hannah books and honestly this one was the worst. The characters are so juvenile and not so very bright. The author did throw in a couple big words but that did not help at all. There were so many mistakes in this book. And it was so repetitive with the coffee, the baking, the inner dialogue (which was the worst) and etc. Too many to list. If Hannah is having problems she should write in a therapist for Hannah to talk to and maybe help solve the problem of Mike or Norman..
