Publisher's Summary

Christmas normally descends on Lake Eden, Minnesota, as gently as reindeer alighting on a rooftop - but this yuletide season the only thing coming down Hannah Swensen's chimney is a case of murder.

The holidays have arrived, and Hannah and her good pal, Lisa, have agreed to provide all the goodies for the town's annual production of A Christmas Carol. But before anyone can say "bah, humbug!" a Santa-size sackful of trouble ensues. Like the fact that Lisa's husband will be playing Mr. Claus to his ex-girlfriend Phyllis Bates' Mrs. Claus. Or that before the curtains even go up, Phyllis is found dead in the snow - wearing a costume that the real Mrs. Claus would put on the naughty list. Soon after, the suspects pile up faster than snowdrifts in a blizzard while a merry murderer remains on the loose. With clues even harder to find, it might take a visit from ghosts of Christmas past to wrap up this mystery in time for the holidays.

Does not move series forward

Any additional comments?

If you read these books because of the on-going storyline, you can skip this one. It occurs before Hannah married. Sorry I wasted a credit.

Excellent!

This is another great addition to this series. It is well written and preformed. You can't help but fall in love with her characters! The storyline is 100% Minnesota and Cookie Jar filled exploits! I loved the audio option!

good recipes

I am disappointed that this story didn't follow the wedding book. It is the first Hannah Swensen mystery that I read by audio. I prefer the printed version.

Delightful

always wonderful stories and love the personalities. Hard to find variety of titles in local library. The food themes are fun. Good clean reading and listening.

Done.

Repetitive, far fetched, uninspired...and, wait! Isn't Hannah supposed to be married? It seemed like it alluded to the same old platonic mike-Hannah-Norman triangle! Where was Ross? Was this entire book a flashback??!! I think I am done with this series. Good news?? Hannah finally knows how to use her cell phone!

Another hit

I love Mohammed Swenson novel. It's one gets better this one just confused me for a little bit until I remembered that she was telling the story from the Christmas before she met Ross.

waste of my time

more time was spent listening to 7 or 8 recipes than to an actual story.

What a joke!

The Hannah Swensen series has been getting worse but this one went way over board. I truly hope she used a ghost writer for this one and has sense enough not to use them again.

Delicious Murder Strikes Again!

This is a light fluffy murder investigation adorned with tasty Christmas treats. I enjoyed the plot although I was dissatisfied with the reading of the recipes. They interfered with the flow of the story. Ms. Toren read the story very well but I prefer the TV movies of these books.

Stellar performance!

This book was a great read. I hope a new longer book about Hannah and Ross will come out soon.
