Book Description

Jan. 25 2011 Hannah Swensen Mysteries
Early summer brings plenty of work for baker Hannah Swensen, even before Mayor Bascomb's wife drops by The Cookie Jar to place an order for her charity event...For eleven-hundred cookies! And Hannah almost flips when her business partner, Lisa, suggests setting up an apple turnover stand. But she places her faith in Lisa and agrees to be a magician's assistant in the fundraiser's talent show. The only snag is the show's host, college professor Bradford Ramsey. Hannah and her sister, Michelle, each had unfortunate romances with Ramsey, and when the cad comes sniffing around between acts, Hannah tells him off. But when the curtain doesn't go up, she discovers Ramsey backstage - dead, with a turnover in his hand. Now Hannah must find a killer who's flakier than puff pastry - and far more dangerous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Nov. 15 2011
By Harper
Format:Mass Market Paperback
One of the best in the series. A pleasure to read and not an easy mystery to solve, either, as is the case with a few of her books.

2.0 out of 5 stars I wish this author would turnover a new leaf! March 2 2010
By Ms. Jessica - Published on
Arrrrgggggg........three steps forward, two steps back. All of the progress that seemed to be made in "Cream Puff Murder" has been undone in the last two books,the series has reverted to the same old beyond-belief love triangle. As referenced in prior reviews, it seems so out of character for Hannah to put up with Mike's hound dog behavior, yet she is totally over it without even calling him to task. To add insult to injury, this book portrays Mike as the good guy and now Norman is the bad guy. At this point, I could care less what the outcome of the cliff-hanger is in the next book. I won't be reading it. I wish I had read the reviews before buying this book; I gave the series a second chance after CPM, but that was obviously a mistake. I am so disappointed since this used to be one of my favorite, go-to, series.
PS- the mystery is blatantly obvious.

1.0 out of 5 stars From Bad to Worse April 6 2010
By Health nut & avid reader - Published on
I have read every book in this series, and find this one to be the worst of the bunch. I've actually been finding that each new release is worse than the one before. The romantic triangle between Hannah, Mike and Norman has gotten old and tired. I'm sick of reading about Hannah's inability to make a final decision between the two. I'm actually to the point where I wish they both would just dump her and get on with it already. I stopped buying the books and started taking them out of the library because I don't feel that they're worth the money. Even the recipes don't sound that good. As for the actual story; nothing happens until almost halfway in. There isn't any challenge in figuring out who the murderer is. Just knowing who the victim was I was able to figure out who the murderer was even before the murder occurred. This series has definitely gone on way too long. It's just like a bad TV show now. It may have been fun to read for a while, but it's way past its prime. I won't be reading any more books from this series.

2.0 out of 5 stars BORING!!! March 4 2010
By Melodie Stickrath - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I used to love this series. Likeable characters, nice stories and great recipes. The recipes are still good, but that's about it. Hannah is becoming more & more unlikeable with each book, and I am SO beyond over this whole stupid "triangle". Ms. Fluke told me by e-mail that she can't make Hannah's mind up for her (which sounded a bit strange!), and it will be decided when it's decided. Well, there was a new character introduced at the very end of this book who might make a difference, but I doubt it. It seems these cliffhangers keep getting done and then there is still no resolution. This was the most boring book of the whole series. I knew who the killer was and what the motive was before the murder even took place. C'mon!! Make it a little more interesting for me! I won't lay out cash for these anymore, and if I decide to read the next one, a BIG IF!, I'll get it from the library.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just can't take it anymore May 12 2010
By coffeehousecozy - Published on
I can't imagine a more ridiculous conversation than Hannah's and Andrea's over the Sun moon cookies it was just unreal! The dialogue makes me crazy and I'm so sick of Hannah correcting other characters grammar I could scream. I think if I knew her personally I might slap her. I'm so done with this series. Could Sherry's pregnancy be any more obvious? I mean c'mon I just had a baby 6 months ago and the only thing I craved was Mexican food the whole portion with her dipping the Apple turnover in the mustard? Give me a break..

3.0 out of 5 stars A weak three star March 29 2010
By Holly - Published on
The Hannah Swensen mysteries are something I have followed since they were first published and I have read them all. This is the thirteenth installment and I think they are definitely losing steam. Side note: I truly enjoyed the holiday mystery, "Plum Pudding Murder", since a slow-paced comfort read is what I look for during that busy season, and it delivered.

I look forward each spring to settling in with Hannah and her friends and family as well as having a bit of intrigue mixed in. I was fairly disappointed with "Cream Puff Murder" which is the previous, non-holiday mystery and I felt the same way about this one. I could almost cut and paste my review from that book since I had many of the same reactions.

The mystery is a bit stronger in this story, but it is still more "cozy" than mystery. The body isn't discovered until almost half way into the book leaving the first 125 pages to ramble on about what is happening with Hannah and her family. With that many pages dedicated to the relationships and atmosphere, I would have hoped for more. While we catch up with our friends in Lake Eden, largely Hannah bakes, complains about not getting enough sleep, and drinks copious amounts of coffee to recharge after not getting sleep. As a 30-something adult, you think she would figure out just to go to bed. The Mike/Norman/Hannah triangle that appeared to begin being resolved in the last books has taken a step backward and Hannah is in full blown confusion about what to do regarding that situation. I am in totally agreement with other reviewers that this storyline has worn itself out and has reached the point of being nothing other than irritating. Hannah just is coming across as a nitwit at this point.

Bottom line: I usually read one of these books in about two days. This one took me four since I found I didn't particularly care anymore. I will probably try one more after this since the holiday book was so enjoyable, but other than that, the series has two strikes in the last two books. Three strikes and you are out. It may just have run its course - it's feeling very worn out to me.
