    Raspberry Danish Murder was better than the previous Hannah Swenson book but still seems very odd compared to the rest of the series. Is there a ghostwriter writing these books now? It seems every character name is overused. I don't remember early in the series Hannah constantly ad...

    A little over a year ago, I joined NetGalley and Raspberry Danish Murder, the 22nd book in the Hannah Swensen cozy mystery series by Joanne Fluke, was one of the first books I requested. It had just been published, but I was ten books behind in the series. Throughout the last year, I f...

    Hannah Swensen is still reeling from the disappearance of her new husband, Ross Barton. He disappeared without a trace, leaving no explanation. When Ross' former assistant at KCOW-TV, P.K. Alesworth, is killed after eating poisoned candy that was left on Ross' desk, Lake Eden police st...

    In this 22nd book in the 'Hannah Swensen' series, Hannah investigates the death of a television station employee. The book can be read as a standalone, but familiarity with the characters is a bonus. Warning: If you haven't kept up with the series this review will contain a minor...

    Rather interesting characters, but elementary and lackluster writing. In some places the writing is so bad as to be the sort found in chapter books? "We have a custard for dessert." "Did you hear they have a custard for dessert?" "I think I will order the custard for dessert." (T...

    I cannot even with these books any more. They have gotten progressively worse with each one. This book was literally 90% people eating or talking about what they're going to eat, or what they just ate, or how to cook the recipe that appears on the next page. Throw in boringly long page...

    Say what you will about these books, but the cliffhanger endings are what saves them. Somehow I have got to know how this Hannah-Mike-Norman-Ross love "square" ends!! I read most of this all in one morning, and... as usual ...there were things that bugged me. Right out of the gate (...

    I was gifted an ebook via Netgalley. I'm sad to say that this is the last Hannah Swensen book I will be reading. I've made it to 22 and that is an accomplishment, right? I feel like 80% of the book is food now. I love food, don't get me wrong, but there is little plot other than that....

    A sad attempt to revive a dying series. This particular book seemed like a juvenile wrote it. Very little mystery as most of the book was taken up with recipes and food talk. The rest was Hannah obsessing about what was wrong with her that her new husband left and hasn't come back. I h...

    It's Thanksgiving, and Hannah's husband has gone missing. A good beginning, I thought. Hannah is trying to cover her grief by working. Of course, super cop Mike is no help. Then Ross's assistant is murdered, while driving Ross's car. Hannah starts to investigate. She finds things out a...

    I absolutely loved this book! The ending was just what I was hoping for! I'm trying not to give anything away but even the book descriptions of these last few books in this series are sort of spoiler-like if all a person has read has been the first books. I had only read books in the b...

    I was very excited to read Raspberry Danish Murder (largely because of the title, not going to lie), but, ultimately, I couldn't plow through it and ended up abandoning it. You may be wondering: what could make a COZY MYSTERY so hard to read? After all, this genre is renowned for being...

    I don't want to give spoilers for people reading this entire series who are a few books back (of course, there are some in the book's description), but suffice to say that yes, Hanna's Raspberry Danish is at the scene of a murder (obviously by someone else) and it takes five of them wo...

    I usually really enjoy the books in this series, and I haven't read or heard one for a while. It seemed like there was more time than usual, talking about eating food, preparing food, etc. I skip over the recipes at the end of each chapter. I can't make those kinds of things, and eat t...

    In this 22nd book in the 'Hannah Swensen' series, Hannah investigates the death of a television station employee. The book can be read as a standalone, but familiarity with the characters is a bonus. Warning: If you haven't kept up with the series this review will contain a minor...

    Rather interesting characters, but elementary and lackluster writing. In some places the writing is so bad as to be the sort found in chapter books? "We have a custard for dessert." "Did you hear they have a custard for dessert?" "I think I will order the custard for dessert." (T...

    I cannot even with these books any more. They have gotten progressively worse with each one. This book was literally 90% people eating or talking about what they're going to eat, or what they just ate, or how to cook the recipe that appears on the next page. Throw in boringly long page...

    It's Thanksgiving, and Hannah's husband has gone missing. A good beginning, I thought. Hannah is trying to cover her grief by working. Of course, super cop Mike is no help. Then Ross's assistant is murdered, while driving Ross's car. Hannah starts to investigate. She finds things out a...

    I absolutely loved this book! The ending was just what I was hoping for! I'm trying not to give anything away but even the book descriptions of these last few books in this series are sort of spoiler-like if all a person has read has been the first books. I had only read books in the b...

    I was very excited to read Raspberry Danish Murder (largely because of the title, not going to lie), but, ultimately, I couldn't plow through it and ended up abandoning it. You may be wondering: what could make a COZY MYSTERY so hard to read? After all, this genre is renowned for being...

    It?s November in Lake Eden, Minnesota. Cold weather has settled in and snow has begun to make its regular appearance. Unfortunately, Hannah Swenson is unable to enjoy the change in seasons; her husband Ross is still missing without a trace. Hannah has hope of his return as he took hi...

    Joanne Fluke is back once again with another edition of her Hannah Swensen Mystery series. Raspberry Danish Murder is the twenty-fourth book in this series. Hannah Swensen Barton is still trying to make sense of the disappearance of her husband, Ross Barton, two weeks ago. Taking with ...

    I don't want to give spoilers for people reading this entire series who are a few books back (of course, there are some in the book's description), but suffice to say that yes, Hanna's Raspberry Danish is at the scene of a murder (obviously by someone else) and it takes five of them wo...

    A little over a year ago, I joined NetGalley and Raspberry Danish Murder, the 22nd book in the Hannah Swensen cozy mystery series by Joanne Fluke, was one of the first books I requested. It had just been published, but I was ten books behind in the series. Throughout the last year, I f...

    Hannah Swensen is still reeling from the disappearance of her new husband, Ross Barton. He disappeared without a trace, leaving no explanation. When Ross' former assistant at KCOW-TV, P.K. Alesworth, is killed after eating poisoned candy that was left on Ross' desk, Lake Eden police st...

    In this 22nd book in the 'Hannah Swensen' series, Hannah investigates the death of a television station employee. The book can be read as a standalone, but familiarity with the characters is a bonus. Warning: If you haven't kept up with the series this review will contain a minor...

    Rather interesting characters, but elementary and lackluster writing. In some places the writing is so bad as to be the sort found in chapter books? "We have a custard for dessert." "Did you hear they have a custard for dessert?" "I think I will order the custard for dessert." (T...

    I cannot even with these books any more. They have gotten progressively worse with each one. This book was literally 90% people eating or talking about what they're going to eat, or what they just ate, or how to cook the recipe that appears on the next page. Throw in boringly long page...

    Rather interesting characters, but elementary and lackluster writing. In some places the writing is so bad as to be the sort found in chapter books? "We have a custard for dessert." "Did you hear they have a custard for dessert?" "I think I will order the custard for dessert." (T...

    I cannot even with these books any more. They have gotten progressively worse with each one. This book was literally 90% people eating or talking about what they're going to eat, or what they just ate, or how to cook the recipe that appears on the next page. Throw in boringly long page...

    I was gifted an ebook via Netgalley. I'm sad to say that this is the last Hannah Swensen book I will be reading. I've made it to 22 and that is an accomplishment, right? I feel like 80% of the book is food now. I love food, don't get me wrong, but there is little plot other than that....
