    Chocolate Cream Pie Murder

    After Ross, her husband, disappeared, Hannah decides to tell her friends the truth about what she learned about him. Her friends are standing behind her no matter what happens. Then, Ross contacts Hannah and threatens her. Ross wants the money he left with Hannah. Norman and Mike come to her aid to protect her when mysterious events start happening. When a body is found in Hannah’s condo, can she figure out whodunit? I usually love this mystery series, but this one missed the mark. There seemed to be an overabundance of recipes, and not much of a mystery plot. The actual murder didn’t occur until I had read approximately eighty percent through the book. I didn’t feel that Hannah really investigated anything. She just looked at a picture of the perpetrator, and he winds up on her doorstep. I hope the next book in this series is more compelling. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley and am voluntarily reviewing it.

    Chocolate cream pie murder

    As always I do enjoy the story lines. But in this particular book having 10 pages of recipes per chapter was in my opinion a bit much. I would prefer more story and less recipe like in her previous world.

    Good

    Murder didn't occur until about three quarters through the book and didn't seem to be the main plot.

    Sickly sweet and all fluff - no story

    Many thanks to NetGalley, Joanna Fluke, and Kensington Books for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. My opinions are 100% my own and independent of receiving an advance copy. I am not sure what happened with this book. I have read many others in this series and have had various degrees of enjoyment. I know what to expect so I am not comparing this to some highbrow literature and expecting the get the same experience. Sometimes you just want what you want and the ease of reading, the expectation of how it is going to go, the familiarity of the characters are all I wanted when I opened up this book. And I knew I would get at least a chocolate cream pie recipe out it! But this stunk! I really didn’t enjoy it at all. I’m so sorry to say this but it was a big disappointment. It opens up with Hannah having to apologize to her community announcing that her marriage was over. Not just over but Norman, the man she married had fooled her and was already married to someone else, nullifying her marriage. Eventually Norman gets murdered and it has to be solved. But this book went nowhere. There really wasn’t a story. Halfway through there wasn’t even a murder to solve. It was mostly Hannah with her neighbours making recipes. It was beyond fluff. Everyone was sickly sweet to each other. How can everyone be in such a good mood and so nice to each other all of the time. They were constantly coming up with new recipes. It sort of went like Oh there’s pineapple and mint and Brussel sprouts in your fridge so I’m going to make a new kind of muffin for the store to sell and aren’t they so delicious! Everyone gets to “test” out the new creation and it is always amazing. Also these people would be 300 pounds if they ate the way they did in this book. They are always drinking coffee and eating plates full of cookies, muffins and cakes. They hardly eat a real meal with vegetables! It was so out of the realm of believable and the characters so cardboard I couldn’t stand it! As I said, I understand the premise of these books but somehow this time, it just didn’t work for me.

    same old Hannah and recipes

    This shows as # 24 but counting the books listed I counted 27 books. Book # 27 (24?) in this series, and still Hannah has Norman and Mike at her beck and call. There are more recipe pages than story plot but it is a good light read and great if you like recipes. The Cookie Jar is gearing up for Valentine's Day and new recipes for cookies, dessert bars, and bundt cakes fill this book. Hannah's decision to face the town with Ross' betrayal allows everyone to express their support for/of Hannah. Norman, her faithful BFF, does guard duty shifts with Mike and Lonny when Ross threatens to harm Hannah. The plot plods on in a steady Hannah fashion and the recipes look delicious. I volunteered to read an ARC from Kensington Press through Net Galley.
