I have loved reading Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swensen Series but after 15 books, isn't it time to start changing the scene a little? I think the biggest mystery of "Cinnamon Roll Murder" was if Norm was going to marry Dr. Bev or not. Truthfully, Hannah really needs to wake up and smell the coffee she professes to love so much. Norm is no better than Mike and both treats Hannah more like property than the woman they supposedly both love. Add that to the fact that Norm is a grown man, actually a dentist so it can be summerized he holds some degree of intelligence, yet, he spent most of this book all moody and depressed because he's allowing Dr. Bev to control his life. Yet typical that Hannah, her sisters, and her mom comes riding in on their white horses to save the day, and of course - Norman. I adore Joanne Fluke . . . I just think it's time for her to start giving Hannah a different prospective on life - other than just Norm and Mike. After 15 books, I just think she's better than either of these two bozo's.

I am always at a lose trying to describe how I feel about this series. I buy the books and read them as they come out but still somehow find Hannah herself very annoying. The triangle, which never made any sense to begin with, is now completely played out. I don't really see why either man is so patiently waiting for her to figure out her feelings. I like the supporting characters in the book. On a side note, I got this book on my Nook and have to say that the recipes appearing in the middle of the text was very annoying. Can't help wondering if the publisher couldn't put the recipes at the end of the electronic versions. I, for one, don't stop to read a whole recipe in the middle of a mystery.

    Going downhill

    I used to really enjoy Joanne Fluke's books. They were never partiularly sophisticated, but they were fun and lighthearted. Coming from the midwest too, I always enjoyed the down home settings and characters. However I have to agree with other reviewers about how unenjoyable this last book in the series is. Ms. Fluke seems to have lost her way. The characters seem stale and uninteresting. The plot line, though never particularly strong, seems very weak and uninspired. The whole story line appears to be stuck in a very uninteresting place. Nothing in the series has evolved. Please go back to writing from a place of fun, or please wrap up the series. The last few books are nowhere near as good as the ones in the beginning of the series.

    I have read every book in this series and enjoyed them at first. However, I must admit that now I buy them mostly for the cookie recipes. The whole Hannah/Mike/Norman triangle has gone on MUCH TOO LONG!!! It has become really annoying and does nothing to enhance the stories. I have a feeling that something is going to go wrong with Norman's wedding and we will be back to this "will she or won't she?" nonsense in the next book. Enough, already! Time for a new sub-plot. Please?

    Just Choose Already!
    The love triangle between Hannah, Mike, and Norman is getting ridiculous! It was cute for the first 10 books, but enough already! Please Mrs. Fluke, have Hannah choose one of the men and get on with her life!

    Not my cup of tea. I finally just had to abandon the book, otherwise I was going to throw my Nook across the room in frustration. I don't understand what my family sees in this series. My wife, mother, mother-in-law, and several aunts/cousins all seem to love it. It took almost a quarter of the book before we found out someone was "murdered", and immediately thereafter that information is completely abandoned to a bunch of pages on eating. I realize this series is heavily food influenced, but come on. At what point does the author plan on discussing the "mystery" in the mystery book?

    The eBook was formatted fine with just a few spelling/grammatical errors
