This book was really good. I wasn't able to tell with in the first three chapters who the killer was and exactly who died. I only wish she would hurry up and pick which boyfriend she wants to marry. I also wish they would wait and do all of the receipes at the end of the story instead of right after the food was mentioned, But I still love them and I know that the way it is read is the way it is written.
Hurry up and write more books.
I listen to audio books while working.
The story is okay, but wading through the recipes is awful. Who want to hear a recipe? Put them at the end! Ruined our reading!
The books in this series are nice for a "cozy" read. They don't attempt to challenge you or keep you on the edge of your seat. They are comfortable just like Hannah's Cookies.
The narrator's voice sounds older than Hannah's mother would be. Nothing wrong with that but it just didn't fit for Hannah. Having read all the books up to this one, I envision Hannah as fresher, spunkier and lighter. She has a dry wit but that doesn't mean she needs to sound dulled and depressed. With a different voice I would try this series again.
Yes. This is a quick and entertaining book.
Additionally, we get some delicious sounding recipes for desserts with a good story.
This was a light listen. It was an ok story line but seemed to drag in places. The reading of recipes was a little much I am sure in the print books it would be nice to have but they should have waited and read them all at the end of the book since it only hurt the flow of the story while listening to it. I thought the narrator played the main character's voice way to old. The main character is suppose to be in her 30's but the narrator sounded in her 50's or 60's to me even though she made other female character's sound the appropriate age. I will probably not be getting any more of this series to listen to but I might pick one up to read in print if I ever want a light easy read.
I have read a couple of books in this series. This is the first I listened to. It is also the last. The reader's characterizations are annoying. The mystery is just so-so. I found the recipes to be really annoying.
come on, life is not like this...
everyone is too "perfect"
needs more humor~!! check out Kyra Davis for some fun and humor!
