Cinnamon Roll Murder (Hannah Swensen Series #15) by Joanne Fluke

The Fresh Baked Usa Today, San Francisco Chronicle And Chicago Tribune Bestseller!

April is a busy time for Hannah Swensen and her bakery; the warm weather makes folks in Lake Eden, Minnesota, go wild for something sweet. When Hannah hears that the Cinnamon Roll Six jazz band will be playing at the town's Weekend Jazz Festival, she's more than happy to bake up a generous supply of their namesake confections to welcome the band to town.

Before the festival even begins, tragedy strikes when the tour bus overturns. Among those injured is Buddy Neiman, the band's beloved keyboard player. Buddy's injuries appear minor, until his condition suddenly takes a turn for the worse--as in dead. Hannah's no doctor, but she suspects that the surgical scissors someone plunged into Buddy's chest may have something to do with it. Hannah isn't sure just how she'll unravel the mystery, but one thing's for sure: nothing's sweeter than bringing a killer to justice. . .

Features over Ten Cookie and Dessert Recipes from The Cookie Jar, including Peaches and Cream Cookies and Chocolate Caramel Bars!

"Fans of this wildly popular series will not be disappointed. Fluke has kept this series strong for a long time, and there is still plenty to enjoy for foodie crime fans." --Booklist

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.

“Mud Season’ has arrived in Lake Eden, Minnesota. Hannah and her younger Sister, Michelle, are enroute with a delicious-smelling delivery of Cinnamon Rolls for the Lake Eden Inn. Innkeepers; Sally and Dick are sponsoring the first Weekend Jazz Festival featuring the well-known “Cinnamon Roll Six”. Hannah’s yummy rolls will be served after the group’s rehearsal. With the unseasonably warm weather during the day, the accumulated snow has melted and frozen on the roadways, creating black ice and extremely hazardous driving. As much as Hannah’s trusty truck is good on Lake Eden’s snowy roads, it is no match for the ice, so after fish-tailing and watching a sea of red brake lights appear on the horizon, Hannah avoids a collision and swerves onto an access road. Others were not so lucky and when Hannah and Michelle trudge through the snow to offer assistance, they discover the tour bus of the “Cinnamon Roll Six” on its roof in a snow-packed ditch. They manage to enter through the rear door and assess any injuries. They find the bus driver is dead and Keyboardist, Buddy Neiman has a possible broken wrist. Hannah and Michelle tend to the shaken group and accompany them to the hospital. Everything goes like clockwork until the slightly injured Buddy Neiman is discovered stabbed to death by none other than Hannah’s Mother, Delores. Delores has been “assisting” Doc Knight as well as becoming leader of the Hospital Auxiliary’s ”Rainbow Ladies”. Who would want to murder Buddy Neiman?? The Band’s groupies; Lynnette and Cammy? Ex-girlfriend Shelby?? Or maybe keyboardist wanna-be, young Devin Murphy?? Was Clayton the bus driver’s death due to a heart attack or foul play?? Does Hannah have two (2) murders to set her already boggled mind to spinning? Luckily, Michelle, Andrea and Delores join the investigation as Hannah receives the one article of mail she has been dreading..Norman and Doctor Bev’s wedding invitation!! She agonizes over whether she should attend or not—and her feelings are raw. After all, she and Norman are still friends. Obligation is one thing—Love is something else. What part does the snowflake bracelet play in this crime? I have to say this is one of, if not the best, Lake Eden volume to date. Fellow Hannah-ites, you will love, love, love the twists and twirls Ms. Fluke has “rolled” between its covers as well as the D-licious recipes including “Tapioca Pie”, “Piggy Chicken” and very special “Peaches and Cream Cookies”. Re-arrange your bookshelf and don’t miss out on this winner!! You won’t be disappointed!! Nancy Narma

This is the last book in this series I will read. I just can't with them anymore. I had to stop reading multiple times because I was dumbfounded at these characters, plot, dialogue, etc, and at myself for spending money after the last craptastic entry. - ENOUGH with the "LOVE TRIANGLE". Hannah is just ridiculous and I can't figure out if she has a case of arrested development, is really that innocent and naive, or thinks boys are icky. Idiots, all of them. - I can suspend disbelief quite a bit and get lost in the story but ENOUGH. Between the sister leaking police info, to the mom going into medical files and impersonating people, to the whole lot of that family lifting evidence from residences, it is just so bad and ridiculous that I actually feel idotic I spent money to read this. - And a big old "I CAN'T" to Hannah. When my reaction to the heroine is the urge to slap her, I'm finished. Hannah is simultaneously a dolt, naive, idiotic, frustrating, condescending, selfish. - There is no character development. Hannah? Same as before. Sisters? Same annoying characters. Mother? Check. I dare say the same dialogue is used in each book. Hohoho, I wonder if Andrea will say something about Hannah's clothes. Maybe the mom will too. Hope the whole town rallies around super sleuth Hannah even though there are police and stuff, and should we ever read about the trial of the murderers we'll probably find out half the "evidence" is inadmissable because Hannah is an idiot ("what is a search warrant? My sisters and I just broke in and took that murder weapom so we could give it to Mike when he comes over at midnight so I can cook for him and maybe he'll put his arm around me! True love") and the other half are her doodles in the lisa frank trapper keeper she uses for her "murder book". The only characters that are likeable and actually have character growth are the dang cats. So basically, I am an idiot for buying this, esecially based on how bad the last few have been. No more.

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.

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.

Really badly written... I just finished the first chapter, and it makes no sense whatsoever. The dialog sounds like it was written by a little kid, and the main characters seem like idiots. And the actions performed by the main characters are not what you should be doing if there was a really bad car incident. It was basically like, “Hey look the bus is overturned and stuck in a ditch (HELLO? The people inside must be badly hurt!)… I wonder if I can read what it says on the side UPSIDE DOWN!” Seriously??? One of the worst books I have ever started. Not going to try to finish it.

Finally, after fifteen stories, another strong outing for Hannah Swenson and her family and friends in Lake Eden, MN. When a multi-car pileup turns into the murder of a member of the jazz group to play a the Lake Eden Inn, Hannah's on scene right away. Just to make things interesting, Hannah also has more issues with her love triangle, but in this novel, some things seem to become more resolved. You would think she's finally made some sort of decision in this disconcerting love triangle, but you never know.

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?

If I wanted a cookbook, I would have bought a cookbook! The further I get into the series, there are more and more recipes and less and less storyline! Stick to the story and throw a few recipes in at the end! Ridiculous!!
