    "YUM"
    What did you like best about this story?

    It seemed like Hannah and the rest of the Lake Eden were a little off in the last few books, but all is well with this. The plot is good. The murder victim is one that I am glad won''t be coming back in later books. And, the recipes are ones that I really do want to try.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm for Norman. I want to see Hannah get together with Norman.

    Story
    "Highly anticipated and unexpected thrills"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you are at all into food, and like the idea of fiction food novels, then you will be hooked by the Hannah Swenson Murder series. I recommend starting at the beginning, but anywhere will do. Even if you are not into murder mysteries, which I definitely was not, you will fall in love with the characters and stories crafted intricately into the series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Red Velvet Cupcake Murder?

    The whole scene of Dr. Bev's death remains in my mind, as it has been foreshadowed in several of the previous editions, and anyone who likes Hannah as a character probably wants to see Bev killed. Marriage for Hannah would probably be the only thing to top that... and I hope to see that come soon!


    Which character – as performed by Suzanne Toren – was your favorite?

    It's hard to pick out the voice of a specific character in my mind, even though I've already listened to the book at least three times, but I'd probably say Dr. Bev, again. She is such a creep and a slink, and that comes across well in the recording.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I try to limit it to 15 or 30 minutes while I'm falling asleep, but I find myself restarting that recording once my iHome goes to sleep, or listening as I'm getting dressed, riding the bus, and going about every part of my day, whether I like it or not. I hope the next one will be out very soon!


    Any additional comments?

    Please be speedy with coming out with the next addition! I really want to listen to the next one now... the only thing that might stop me is the price. Too bad you can't get two for one credit. Just a busy but book-loving college student speaking...

    Story
    "Hard time getting through this one"
    What did you like best about Red Velvet Cupcake Murder? What did you like least?

    The story was slow moving and I'm getting a little 'over' the Mike and Norman thing, just too unrealistic and with each book gets even more unrealistic. I always get the urge to bake when listening to this series, my husband loves it. : )


    Would you recommend Red Velvet Cupcake Murder to your friends? Why or why not?

    I do like the 'cozy' feel of these books. That said, my 13 year old niece loves this series but I wouldn't want her listening to this particular one because of some sexual innuendo (which really surprised me).


    Could you see Red Velvet Cupcake Murder being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No

    Story
    "NOT MY CUP OF TEA!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    My grandmother or any elderly person who can relate to this type of scene. Well written in that, you can visualize what is happening, but so far fetched, it becomes silly. I bought this book on sale...but should not have bothered trying something new!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Joanne Fluke again?

    No, once was definitely enough of this style of story for me. I will watch for this author so I don't end up with another book that I cannot even get to the third chapter on...and even getting that far was torture.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Suzanne Toren’s performances?

    No, even the performance was most unenjoyable!


    What character would you cut from Red Velvet Cupcake Murder?

    Just could not get into the story right from the beginning, the recipes included in the story of a murder mystery....are you serious! That was the last straw! What do recipes for what they are serving at the party have to do with anything???


    Any additional comments?

    Sometimes you step outside your comfort zone and are pleasantly surprised to find another author you enjoy.....and sometimes it does not pay...guess which one this was for me!

    "No recipes please!!"

    This is my first try with this series. I guess one of the reasons people might listen is for the recipes but I find them extremely annoying and detracting from the flow of the story. If I can skip through the recipes, I might finish but I'll listen to other books first.
