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.

Enjoyable Family Listen

My three children, ages 9 to 13, and I listen to Hannah Swensen books together during lunch. My 13 year old son asked for one to listen to by himself so I bought this audiobook. When he was done, I listened to it. We all enjoy the narration and main characters. Most importantly the Hannah Swenson books are solid mystery books that don't have cursing. taking the Lord's name in vain, or sexual content (just a few kisses). Great books for family listening.

Not for me

I tried to give this book multiple chances. I finally gave up. It is so slow paced and I was bored. There wasn't anything that made me want to stay with the story. I didn't get attached to the characters or have any interest in seeing how things turn out.

The narrator was so-so. She wasn't bad but I didn't really care for her voices. She does seem to have a good range.

This is the first book I have read/listened to by this author. Not sure if I will try another. This is actually book two in the series. I bought books one and two in a sale but accidentally started with this one instead of the first. I doubt I will ever go back to listen to book one. I don't think that it will make it better since my issues were primarily with the pacing and the fact that I didn't like the main character.

Oh and I pretty much hated having to listen to the random extended recipes included throughout. I had to skip ahead to get back to the actual book.

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

good story...less recipes.

it was a very good story with more mystery than usual. Best part was that it wasn't interrupted with too many recipes.

Humorous twist on murder mysteries

Light hearted mystery series. Love the chacters as they are normal people. Narrator is great

Love the Hannah Swensen series!

Love all of Joanne Fluke's books! I've read the whole series and am now listening to them all. I like it, but the narrator swallows loudly toward the end of the book.

Ugh

This story was uneventful and slow. The narration was painful to listen to. Hannah is a 30 something year old lady. The narrator sounds like Juno the Caseworker. I won’t be finishing this series.
