Great Rainy Day Read

I have read all of the Hannah Swensen books and find them to be great fun. The characters seem like old friends, and the prose is uncomplicated and entertaining making this the perfect book to help you unwind when you need to escape from real life for a bit.

STINKS

I'm done with this series...Waste of Time and Money. Self centered, Hannah, corrects grammar in her head, thinks the men in her life should be around when she chooses, can't decide what man she wants, but they can't move on with their lives. She is an over sized diva......

She is an over sized diva...If all i want are recipes, i will buy a cookbook. Goodbye Joanne Fluke...

    disappointing

    I have faithfully read all of this series and I have to say this book was disappointing. The plot was weak, the recipes were the bulk of the book, and the dating relationships have become tiresome. If you are a fan of the series, it is only worth reading to learn what is happening with Norman. Otherwise, don't bother.

    Too many Recipes not enough Mystery

    I have enjoyed the series however this book was too much recipes (not even one's I wanted to try) and not enough writing.

    The plot was boring- this was the worst one in the series- and I am dissappointed because I bought the ebook.

    A disappointment

    I've read all the books in this series and this book was disappointing because of the hugh amount of recipes and weak plot. I enjoyed the development of Hannah's mom, Delores--glad she not the typical stereo type 60 yr old mother described in some books. Tiring of Hannah's indecision bouncing back and forth between Norman & Mike. Buy it if you need some new cookie recipes.

    This town would be the murder capitol of the nation if it really

    This town would be the murder capitol of the nation if it really existed. How can so many people get themselves murdered in such a small town? It is beyond believable. So is the love triangle. It has gone on too long! Ms. Fluke needs to come up with some new sub plots asap. Great cookie recipes, though!

    Getting Old - Move On

    I havs read all of this series. Agree with many of the people who wrote reviews. The books have become tiresome. Glad I check this one out from the library. Hanna needs to make some major choices in her life, business and romances. When will she grow up? Move on or end the series. Your cookies etc. take up too many pages in the books. You think putting them in a cookbook would be enough.
