    New York Times best-selling author Joanne Fluke’s cozy mysteries grow in popularity with each new series entry. One summer in Lake Eden, Minnesota, Hannah Swensen attends the grand opening of a newly refurbished hotel, where her famous red velvet cupcakes will be served in the new Red Velvet lounge. But when a party guest falls from the hotel roof, festivities come to a screeching halt - and Hannah becomes the surprising target of a murder investigation

    Donna says: "Very cute and easy listening"

    Story
    What would have made Red Velvet Cupcake Murder better?

    A little less scripted writing that sounds fake. Half the stuff that anyone says in the book nobody would ever say in real life. And it's very predictable. If I can guess who dunnit a quarter of the way in, it isn't good.


    What could Joanne Fluke have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make the dialogue more realistic.


    What didn’t you like about Suzanne Toren’s performance?

    It was okay. Not sure what she could do better with crappy dialogue. However making most of the women into whiney weak creatures is not my cup of tea. The only one she doesn't do that to is the main character Hannah.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Well it made me remember why I stopped using my credits for Hannah Swenson mysteries.

    A house demolition provides an unpleasant surprise for Minneapolis - the bodies of two girls, wrapped in plastic. It looks like they've been there a long time. Lucas Davenport knows exactly how long.In 1985, Davenport was a young cop with a reputation for recklessness, and the girls' disappearance was a big deal. His bosses ultimately declared the case closed, but he never agreed with that. Now that he has a chance to investigate it all over again, one thing is becoming increasingly clear: It wasn't just the bodies that were buried. It was the truth.

    Stevon says: "good story"
    "Always a pleasure"
    Overall

    I loved this book. John Sandford never disappoints this listener and this book was icing on the Sandford cake. Richard Ferrone is a great narrator and his voice just adds to the story. Loved it. Keep 'em coming.
