Avid reader, freelance writer, world traveler, animal lover. I love sharing my opinions about the books I read.
If you like Murder She Wrote on TV you'll love books by Joanne Fluke! Her main character Hannah Swenson, is a coffee and cookie shop owner with a quirky support cast from the town of Lake Eden, Minnesota. The author serves up many delicious recipes along with an entertaining story.
Listening to a Joanne Fluke story is like visiting with friends in Lake Eden. You get to know the characters and can't wait to see what they say and do next.
The audio version is well done too. The woman who reads them does a very good job.
This book is so sickeningly sweet that you will need to schedule a dental appointment afterwards.
I felt as though I was being taught manners by a 70 year old woman with a Swedish accent.
Words were defined for the reader as if English is a second language.
In a fit of anxiety that I would empty my ipod audiobooks over the holidays I overdosed on Joanna Fluke and will never make that mistake again.
I am a librarian working as a state worker by day and a FB stalker at night. I like thrillers, YA and, and just about anything in between.
It ranks among my favorites because I love the stories, I love the lighthearted and cozy mystery, I adore the fun characters, and I loved the little bit of Southern bits here and there. It just makes me happy.
One of the most memorable was describing the Southern bakery. The murals, fixtures, glassware, tables, etc. It all makes me wish I had it for myself.
I have listened to several of her performances and I think this is one of her best. The Southern accent did not grate my nerves like so many do.
Yes, this is a book I could have listened to in one sitting! I wish I had!
I really love this series, I have both read it and listened to it. Susanne Toren does a very job of narrating this story adding to my enjoyment. Hannah, her family and friend are delightful and keep me wanting more.
I much prefer Dianne Mott Davidson's food related murder mysteries for cozy reading/listening. I listened to "Peach Cobbler Murder" because I'd exhausted the above. I was disappointed by the characters, especially. I meant to give this two stars and another one 4 stars, but I cannot take back the mistakenly given stars. On to Jaqueline Winspere, whose Maisie Dobbs mysteries get 5 stars in my book!
