I find that Suzanne Toren is an excellent nararrator and Joanne Fluke's books are excellently written, exciting and holds suspense. I have even reproduced some of her recipes which are better than anything I've bought from a bakery!
I love Joann Flukes books. Hannah is a hoot and she sure keeps the book moving. Just purchased the newest book Cream Puff Murder. Haven't finished it yet.
I'm sure this series is very popular but I find them more simplistic that I prefer
The plot is pretty good, but the presentation is a bit trite and transparent
Her voice was not as flexible as I would have liked to make the character sound more realistic
love the series, the reader has nailed Hannah perfectly. this is worth the listen!!
Joanne Fluke has been around for a while so I decided to give her series another try. It was ok. I still think it's a bit unrealistic that everyone tells Hannah there secrets and that she isn't reprimanded for breaking and entering people's home or keeping evidence from the police. Also, the final scene with the villain in this book is very similar to the final scene in the first book. I have run out of things to read so I might read the third book in this series. The recipes sound delicious and uncomplicated.
This series is a great one for a fun read when you don't want something too serious. The characters are likable and although the subject is serious, there's plenty of funny scenes.
Hannas's mother is an exaggeration of a lot of typical mothers who lovingly interferes in her daughters life.
The performance is done well. I have luistened to one other of her books and find her character portrals enjoyable and easy to keep apart.
Great story to keep me entertained on a very long car ride. I love food and mysteries. Great combo
