Quotes & Awards

  • “Who could have killed voluptuous Rhonda Scharf, whose half-buried body Hannah’ s interfering mother discovers in the basement of an old house one of Hannah’ s swains has just purchased? The investigation proceeds unhurriedly, with plenty of time for cookies, coffee and small-town gossip. Enticing recipes for cookies and other treats, presented with helpful procedural hints, are an extra bonus.” 

    Publisher Weekly

  • “Suzanne Toren’s warm tones are perfectly suited to Fluke’s story. She adds a melodious quality to Hannah’s voice, which matches her personality, brings strength to her other boyfriend, Mike, and gives an appropriate innocence to the voice of a local man with developmental disabilities. Toren’s grace and ease in telling the story complement the narrative, making for a most enjoyable time.”

    " This book was another tasty book of recipes wrapped in a silly murder mystery package. The story is not believable and borderline childish. The part where it discusses pregnancy and "not being tired until the end" really irritated me. Great lemon meringue pie recipe though. "

    " funny and a quick read. I love to sit and read a mindless book. Takes away stress. Good quick weekend read. Recipes in the book aren't bad either. "

    " I enjoy these books, they are quick easy reads and I like the characters. I did however figure it out pretty early on in the book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Bondy | 9/10/2013

    " Predictable storylines, but I still enjoy reading this series. I think it's because even though the story frame tends to repeat, I like to solve the mystery before all is revealed. It's kind of like the Clue game! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 7/28/2013

    " Good story . . . great recipes! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 2/3/2013

    " This is the fourth in the series and I had about given up after the third. I am glad I stuck with it as this book was better written and had better dialogue between characters (my main complaint about previous books in the series). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Collette Violette | 11/21/2012

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jess | 10/17/2012

    " Its an ok book. Light and easy to read, can become a little dull at some times. I like Hannah, she can be annoying sometimes but most of the time she's funny and smart. The killer is way too obvious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ali | 10/10/2012

    " Still like the series, but wasn't a huge fan of this one, it got a little predictable near the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 *Babs* | 5/17/2012

    " I loved book 4 in this series. Hannah really shows her stuff this go around even though you can figure out who did it early in the book ( at least I did ) it was still a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Colette Thompson | 1/30/2012

    " Murder and a cookbook... Why not? Tried the cottage cheese pancakes though - tasted good but the texture leaves something to be desired. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Larkin | 11/21/2011

    " These are great books when you need something to occupy your mind without weighing you down too much. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sonia | 10/16/2011

    " The first 3 books entertained me, but this one was tedious. It felt like 100 pages of actual plot and 200 pages of extraneous details that were added later to meet a quota. However, the recipes look delectable and are probably the only reason to continue the series at this point. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi | 9/24/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thereverendmom | 4/28/2011

    " Exactly what I expected from Fluke. I hate to admit how distracted I became when she wrote that they don't make blue jello. But there is blue jello. I recognize that detail does not actually effect anything. It just distracted me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 4/24/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marissa | 4/11/2011

    " Another good story in the Hannah Swensen Mysteries. I did see the ending coming, including the answer to the who-done-it and had a feeling that the dramatic ending would occur, but it was still very enjoyable. And very yummy tempting treats throughout too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Whitney | 1/28/2011

    " This book brought me back into the series. After reading the Strawberry Shortcake Murder I thought I was done with this series, but I'm glad I gave this book a chance. I think it's necessary to take a break when reading this series. I've found that I can get through 2 and then I need a break. "
