But then Hannah discovers the man himself dead as a doornail in his own office...
 
Now, with so many suspects to investigate and the twelve days of Christmas ticking away, Hannah's running out of time to nab a murderous Scrooge who doesn't want her to see the New Year...
 
Includes Hannah’s favorite Christmas dinner recipes!

I found this one just plain annoying. The characters aren't growing at all. Hannah needs to make up her mind between the dentist and the cop or cut them both loose and go for someone else. Norm has moved beyond simply courteous to outright obsequious. Mike is just obnoxious. Seriously, who shows up at someone's home at 10:30 at night when they know the person gets up at 4:00 am? And who answers the door? The plot of this one was totally predictable - I figured it out about a third of the way through. I'm done with this series, which makes me sad, since I've read them all and enjoyed them greatly up until the last few.

I read this book a few weeks ago. I liked the book. I try to figure out who the killer is before I get to that part of the book. I had a hard time with this book. I really thought that it was the newest girlfriend/business partner, but I was wrong. Great book. I do, sometimes, wonder about the boyfriend thing though. And I wonder about the exercise thing too. If she is going to keep chasing murderers, she might need to be in better shape so that she may be able to get away from them or at least a little farther ahead of them. Just saying.

I have always enjoyed the Hannah Swenson books, but I have to agree with the reviewers who think the series has become dull and trite. The love triangle has lost its intrigue. Now it's just weird. I can't imagine three people having this kind of relationship in real life. The "mystery" has become secondary to the recipes. The dialogue between the characters is stilted and contrived. I skipped pages of this drivel to either get to the recipes or to whatever there was of the mystery...the solution of which was predictable. My suggestion?? Hannah has to make up her mind and marry either Norman or Mike. She needs to get involved in a complex mystery with more depth and intrigue, and keep the other characters' involvement limited to their participation in the mystery... no more sections like the ones devoted to Carrie and the man in suede boots!

Every Christmas season, cozy mystery authors like to pen a Christmas story with a little mystery. And I don't read these christmas cozies anymore....and this book is one of the reasons why. Pages and pages of finding a tree, decorating a tree, and trying to keep your cat off of the tree. Enough! We will take a little Christmas cheer with our mystery but this was too drawn out and dull.

This author never disappoints me. I found this Hannah Swenson book just as hard to put down as the 11 before it. I love the writing style of this author. Her stories are easy to follow and not confusing at all. I never have to go through the previous chapters to try to figure out who somebody is.

Joanne Fluke is a great author. Every book in her series is one that you hate to put down. I tend to finish one and dive right into the next in the series. The endings are rarely predictable and the story line is very interesting. She includes some very interesting and yummy recipes for each book as well. Great book!

I have always enjoyed this series. However, the last two books had too many recipes and not enough story. I felt like the recipes were just fluff to fill in the page numbers. I really like this author but these last two books were not her best.

Plum Pudding Murder by Joanne Fluke Love this seires and this one is about Larry who runs the crazy elf christmas lot. Lots of suspects in town and some mysteries surrounding the mayor, Norman's mother, Carey keeps declining others dropping by or going out with them, Hannah's ex professor who she had romantic encounter with years ago is now her sister Michelle's friend, and Larry's ex wife teaches at the local college Hannah takes it upon herself to help question others and put the pieces together. She is providing food for her friends upcoming wedding. With Christmas things are very busy. Hannah discovers his body and figures he's running the business in the red and figures also that his ex wife might want to do him in also. Recipes for Christmas dinner are included along with ones in chapters. Love catching up with the townsfolk and finding out what they are up to. I received this book from The Kennsington Books in exchange for my honest review

First and last one of these I will read.  I was looking for some light holiday reading and picked this up, attracted by the Minnesota setting (where I grew up).  This book was inane:  endless, pointless details and dull characters eating and drinking coffee.  I thought I would like the setting, but this book is full of dumb cliches about Minnesota and Minnesotans.  (Yes, it does get cold and people plug in their cars, but enough already.)  Written for people who know nothing about the North Star State.  Shallow and annoying.

I really do enjoy these books a lot, but hannah does really need to make up her mind. When mike said"i guess that's why i'm a detective and you're not" to hannah, she should have snapped a comment right back!! Needs some more action between hannah,mike and norman
