Watch out for the recipe

I've enjoyed all the Hannah books I've read/listened to. The narrator does a good job with the voices. I wish they had added a note that the last recipe (for fudge cupcakes) had an error. It is corrected during the story in the next book, but that was too late for me. I had cupcake batter ALL over my oven. The recipe called for baking SODA instead of baking POWDER. Beware all recipe testers!

Great Book

Enjoyed this book very much. This was one they turned into a movie "Murder She Baked: Just Desserts" on the Hallmark Movie and Mystery channel. Loved the movie too. I really love the books they give you more back ground than the 2 hour movie, yet the movie stays close to the book. However, there is a small twist at the end of the book with this one. Nope, no spoiler alert here...you will have to watch the movie and read to book to discover it for yourself.

light hearted and simple

Good for a simple afternoon when you don't want to think to hard and just want to be entertained. I seem to turn to Joanne Fluke when I need some light hearted entertainment. Occasionally books seems very innocent and characters somewhat naive, which is hard to do when the main subject is supposed to be murder but Hanna Swenson just seems to find herself in the wrong place at the wrong time all the time. Plus, I always wind up hungry and wanting to bake which I is not like me at all normally. Those recipes sometimes make the book, but sometimes it is tedious having to listen to the narrator give all the variations for a single recipe.

Sorry to say...

This is the first title I've read by this author, and I admit to being quite disappointed. The characters are all immature in behavior, the dialog is very predictable, and the author has an annoying habit of explaining in detail things that are obvious to the reader/listener. I can't recommend this to serious mystery readers. The culprit is clear to the listener very early in the book.

Little bit predictable

This time I found story a bit too predictable and therefore stretched out. The Norman versus Mike thing should be taken to some level of conclusion as even for light reading it has become a bit too much back and forth between two friendly rivals.
I may give series another shot as it is a light read when tired.
