Critic Reviews

"With her usual wit and flair, amateur sleuth Hannah narrows down the list of suspects in Bradford's murder, but can she catch the culprit before she becomes the next victim? Scrumptious recipes include mocha nut butterballs and chocolate marshmallow cookie bars." (Publishers Weekly)

Norman or Mike!!

I really like this series and the recipes. However, when is she going to make a "choice"? It's almost getting like the Stephanie Plum series. However, the writing is still excellent. Me personally I'm Team "NORMAN". I love Hannah's mother. ;0)

Apple Turnover Murder

Joanne Fluke is one of my favorite mystery authors. My daughter and I have read all her series. I decided to try one of her audio books instead of buying the hardcover this time. As always, I loved the story and can not wait until her next title comes out to find out more about Hannah Swenson life. I will have to say I found the interruption for the recipes a little annoying as I typically skip over the recipes until I've read the entire story. Afterwards, I go back and look over the recipes. My wish would be to have the recipes in a seperate type file to download.

Good but a bit lacking.

I love these books, but I have to say that this one was a bit lacking in the story line. It felt like Joanne Fluke just threw this book together to meet a deadline. But worth the read if you have been following the story line of Hannah Swensen.

For Pre-teens

This was recommended to me as a "light" book. Not much of a challenge to read. Only got through a couple of chapters. Better as a read for pre-teens.

Charming series

A pleasantly written series that is nice to come back to between books. The plots are not complicated so are an easy listen. The recipes are enjoyable provided you keep the rack in the middle position!;-) Hannah and the other regular characters written well. The reader does a good job with all the different character voices.
The plot of this story follows along like earlier stories - someone unsavory dies, Hannah finds the body and then proceeds to solve the murder faster than the seasoned detective. This time though Mike is letting her in on the investigation. This book ends with a couple of cliff hangers that I'm sure will be in the next book. Looking forward to that!
