Early summer brings plenty of work for baker Hannah Swensen, even before Mayor Bascomb’s wife drops by the Cookie Jar to place an order for her charity event—for eleven-hundred cookies! And Hannah almost flips when her business partner, Lisa, suggests setting up an apple turnover stand. But she places her faith in Lisa and agrees to be a magician’s assistant in the fundraiser’s talent show. The only snag is the show’s host, college professor Bradford Ramsey. Hannah and her sister, Michelle, each had unfortunate romances with Ramsey, and when the cad comes sniffing around between acts, Hannah tells him off. But when the curtain doesn’t go up, she discovers Ramsey backstage—dead, with a turnover in his hand. Now Hannah must find a killer who’s flakier than puff pastry—and far more dangerous.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susie | 2/19/2014

    " This was an "okay" book. I have read all of the other books in the series so I felt that I needed to read this one, too. I think this is about #14. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Currier | 2/14/2014

    " An easy read. The love triangle is still part of the story, but Mike seemed more considerate & Norman was more secretive. I like that Michele is featured more. The recipes were great. This just a lightwieght, entertaining series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maxine | 2/13/2014

    " Was a bit disappointed in this book as it seems like I read half the book before the murder was even committed. I must say that the series are what I call light, fun mystery reading. I have to hang in there to see if Hannah chooses Mike or Norman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 2/1/2014

    " I love this series. It combines two of my favorite things, murder mysteries and cook books! I've read them all, but this was the first one where I actually MADE something from the book. It tried the Vanilla Crack and Chocolate Crack. They were GREAT!! The story is great too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cristy K | 1/31/2014

    " There's a cliff-hanger at the end of this novel. It's a great ending and left me wanting more! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna | 1/21/2014

    " Predictable to the point of annoying. The main character's inability to commit is ridiculous, and the author's twisting and retwisting of that plot line is quite old. The "mystery" almost didn't happen, and the recipes weren't even very interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/19/2014

    " Another fun romp in Lake Eden. Particularly loved the donkey baseball game, was laughing out loud and getting strange looks from my dogs...LOL "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katy | 1/19/2014

    " I didn't think this was a great book; I basically read it because it was there when I needed a book to read. I have not read any of the other books in the series so I don't know any background about the variousrelationships. I found it very strange that good friends Mike and Norman both date Hannah and have no problem with the situation. I can't think of anyone I know that would cool with being so close,, attending the same events etc. Also never really understood the job offer thing with Andrew's husband. If that storyline doesn't continue into the next book in the series then I really don't see the point. I'm also not wild about the writing style; too much unnecessary descriptions-kind of like high school students who have to have a certain number of words in their writing assignments. This was simply a quick easy read, a time killer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaethe Buchholz | 1/14/2014

    " Hannah again happens on a dead body this time during a talent show for a town fund raiser. She helps out to clear a friend's name. Entertaining and a fast read. Lots of delicious recipes throughout the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 1/4/2014

    " This series of books are such guilty pleasures- I love the heroine, Hannah Swensen, the mysteries' plot lines, and the delicious recipes included in each chapter. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jennifer H | 1/2/2014

    " The recipes were interesting and I might try a couple, but otherwise I was unimpressed. Just not my kind of book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mimi | 12/13/2013

    " I read this last year but just noticed I never reviewed it. It is the fourteenth in the series, so I don't really have anything original to say. If you've liked the other Hannah Swensen novels, then you'll enjoy this one. It's a murder mystery with recipes scattered throughout. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaime | 11/30/2013

    " My only problem with this book was that I figured out who did WAY too early. It was so obvious that I sort of got upset. I like to guess all the way to the end when i read mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina Borkowski | 10/23/2013

    " Took a little too long for the murder to take place in this latest in the series. Still an enjoyable read but not very suspenseful. Love the relationship between and Hannah and her two boyfriends! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kina | 9/2/2013

    " I LOVE Joanne Fluke. I LOVE making the recipes out of the book as well. The story is a page turner, I'm up way past my bedtime and on weekends it is the second item I grab after my coffee. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally | 12/16/2012

    " It was a cutesy read. Easy to predict however still nice to listen to. I would listen to others in this series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jan | 7/12/2012

    " Recipes were fun and I like the hints with them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brenda Ann | 7/1/2012

    " Total bubble gum although I am going to try some of the recipes... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Wade | 10/19/2011

    " Just like the rest of the series. I like them, but after 13 books the same story line is getting old. I wish she'd choose Norman or Mike- that would help the story line a little. Again- there are lots of great sounding recipes that I can't wait to try. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 9/17/2011

    " Very clean, kind or dry murder mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 8/23/2010

    " Another great mystery with even better recipes! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 February Four | 5/29/2010

    " Just when you think everyone's got it figured out, the tables turn and things change. That's okay, that's what makes this fun to read. ^_^ "
