Joanne Fluke is always a good read

Would you listen to Carrot Cake Murder again? Why?

I have listened to all Hannah Swensen books over and over

Have you listened to any of Suzanne Toren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Suzanne Toren brings all of the various characters to life.

Any additional comments?

Joanne Fluke books are all funny and I love all of her characters. Murder that is not messy, and romance that is not trashy.

Light Entertainment

I've enjoyed listening to this mystery solved by Hannah Swenson. Joanne Fluke weaves a tight story.
It is a light, entertaining story peppered with loads of recipes. I've read other books by this author in paperback edition. In those cases I was able to try out the included recipes with little trouble.
What I haven't enjoyed is trying to figure out how to copy a recipe without listening to an entire section of the book again.

Review of Carrot Cake Murder

This is my fourth book. It dragged on a bit but still a good series.

Really, really good

I loved this story, it was both exciting and romantic. I forget sometimes how Joanne has woven Ross throughout these stories even if just for a minute. Mike and Norman need some shaking up, plus Mike just isn't the man for her. I have read this book plus listened to it twice now and still catch things that I missed.

Love the stories. The plots are somewhat complex

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Story lines are good.

What about Suzanne Toren’s performance did you like?

I like that Suzanne changes the voices to differentiate the characters, but wish she would not have some of the other women characters sound like babies. Can't all the grown ups have adult voices?

light and amusing

I love cozy mysteries because you don't have to put a lot into it. They are light and usually pretty amusing. The characters are consistant through out all of her books. My only negative might be that these stories have consistantly "happy" characters who are always willing to go out of their way for others-- nobody ever has a bad day, and Hannah's two love interests never seem to be at odds with each other. If you are looking for something that you can deduce from clues, this book is not for you--just a lighthearted book.

Love the Book--Not Crazy about the narration

I really like this series--I've read a bunch of them! However, the narration isn't very good. I will probably continue to read this series but not listen to because of the narration--very disappointing because I love Audible books!

annoying

Reading the recipes throughout the book rather than at the end was very annoying.
