Cherry Cheesecake Murder

Another great book by Joanne Fluke! Her characters in Lake Eden, Minnesota are entertaining and the culinary mystery angle is great. Delicious recipes included even in the audio version.

For those who like light, cozy mysteries, quirky characters and an entertaining story, I would definitely recommend anything by Joanne Fluke. the Audio version doesn't disappoint either!

Cats and Cookies

At times, I felt that I did not belong among the other readers (listeners) to this book. In recently looking through the mystery section of a local bookstore to find some new names to listen to when I felt the need for a light and airy book, I had noted the authors name and the amount of shelf space her books occupied. Happily audible. com gave me a chance to find out whether she would join my happy circle of authors. I believe this is, as of now, her only audiobook.
Clearly, in thinking through what kind of book would work with the predominantly female audience (according to the surveys) for mystery stories, she took to heart the characters who seem to be the backbone of some of the successful series. Her heroine and crime solver is a baker who specializes in what we are told are the most delicious cookies ever tasted, and, of course, she is unmarried, has two suitors, and, most importantly, a cat.
In brief, if you are looking for light, airy,and feminine (not feminist) this book will please you.
It is not as well written as are Lillian Brauns nor as well read as that most successful authors (unabridged) audiobooks have been, but both are adequate to the purpose. The heroine has two sisters who help her get the facts whereby she solves the mysteries and a mother who is a mild pain to all three but is good of heart nonetheless. Romantic musings are small town gossip are of central importance with the mystery part being of no particular importance save to show the heroines talent. Insofar as one will be engaged by the problem solving do not expect a Cornwall or Grafton touch of grit. This is all play acting which might stretch too far one's ability to grant credibility save that one soon adjusts to the lack of credibility and either goes on to the foregone conclusion or pushes the stop button. I went to the end and did not regret it.

Run, don't walk away from this purchase

The ONLY book in my 3 years with Audible that I couldn't tolerate to finish. Guess I was hoping for another Diane Mott Davidson, but not even in the same universe with her.

I love this whole series and you can't go wrong with it. Hannah always helps to find the killer even without trying.

Good mystery. Ok Recipes.

Better mystery than some of the books. The recipes weren't anything new or special. Really glad the "love story" wasn't about Mike and Norman (that's getting really old).

Light and fun

I listen to audiobooks while cooking,cleaning, and driving. As a mother, I look for appropriate content that I will enjoy. I am addicted to these books and the narrator really knows these characters. Really makes my chores fly by
