    Best-selling author Joanne Fluke’s Hannah Swensen mysteries have earned her a loyal following. In this 16th delightful installment, the tour bus carrying the Cinnamon Roll Six overturns, sending the band members to the hospital - and the keyboard player to a bizarre and untimely death. Soon Hannah discovers the victim’s surprising secret - and becomes determined to bring the killer to justice.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Nothing.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Joanne Fluke again?

    No.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The writing of this novel was terrible. It was filled with bakery characters loving every desert they ever met. The pages were mostly filled with filler going from on chocolate desert to another. As a running gag it got old after the second scone, and went downhill from there. Then there were the characters. I found I never cared about any of them.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Cinnamon Roll Murder?

    All of them.

    Would you try another book from Pamela Clare and/or Kaleo Griffith?

    Already did -- in a sale. I'll see if it's any better, but I have my doubts.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Naked Edge?

    The abysmally written sex scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    In general, the writing was poor. The sex scenes so bad I fast-forwarded through them. The plot, story, and sense of Navajo religion enjoyable.

    On assignment for the British Secret Service, a man leads a mysterious expedition into the heart of darkness. Sailing up the furthest reaches of the Amazon River, he is captured by a brutal tribe of indigenous cannibals. Forced into slave labor, he witnesses the unimaginable.

    James says: "As good as the rest of Hawke's adventures"
    "Another "America can do No Wrong" novel"

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Good writing. Not being propaganda for the US military.


    What was most disappointing about Ted Bell’s story?

    The lack of balance. The continued lies that Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro are horrendous, terrorist leaders. The sense that Mr. Bell acts like only British and American people are good, everyone else, bad...


    Have you listened to any of John Shea’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. Thought he did well. Too bad the subject is so slantedly written.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The normal, "too bad everything is black and white." Mr. Bell, scratch the surface a bit. US policies have supported dictators, trained death squads, killed many innocent people because they believe in the right to control the resources in their countries. The primary policy of our government fosters "in the interests of the US," is the right to own, which includes the right to murder, rape, and steal from third world countries. That some of them want to break free of these bonds is not surprising. That doesn't mean they automatically want to come to the US and murder everyone here. This book does nothing but foster that fear.
