I won't order these again

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I'm sure this series is very popular but I find them more simplistic that I prefer

What could Joanne Fluke have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The plot is pretty good, but the presentation is a bit trite and transparent

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Suzanne Toren?

Her voice was not as flexible as I would have liked to make the character sound more realistic

Excellent

I find that Suzanne Toren is an excellent nararrator and Joanne Fluke's books are excellently written, exciting and holds suspense. I have even reproduced some of her recipes which are better than anything I've bought from a bakery!

Easy Listening

I love Joann Flukes books. Hannah is a hoot and she sure keeps the book moving. Just purchased the newest book Cream Puff Murder. Haven't finished it yet.

Standard Joanne Fluke Fare

I have a love-hate relationship with this series, having read or listened to all of the books available so far. I see so much potential for the characters and I feel at home in the world of Lake Eden, Minnesota.
While I do get exasperated with Hannah's grammar policing and sometimes find her a bit put-offish, for the most part I find these stories very entertaining and they always keep my interest.

Lightly baked

Another well mixed concoction of story line and kitchen fun. Who would have thought cookies & murder would mingle so well.?
Ms Toren delightful managed tension and mishaps among delightful characters in their designated settings . Well done fun.

Narration is iffy - story is good

The narrator is lacking - most the female voices she does sounds simpering and childish.... borderline babytalk. Overall I like the series but would love to hear anyone else read it. I can not listen in short bits because how irritating the narrators voice is.
