    Series Turnaround!

    I have been a follower and avid reader of this series since I read the very first book in the series, Chocolate Chip Murder, but over the last few books I didn’t jump to read them right when they were released because I was getting a bit frustrated with the never-ending love triangle. Well, that triangle has officially ended with Hannah marrying Ross, her college crush. Through most of the book I felt that Hannah and Ross’s relationship was kinda forced and it felt weird to me that Norman and Mike were hanging around and ok with Hannah and Ross being together. However, by the end of the book I can say I too jumped on the Hannah and Ross love train and I am so happy to see them get married! I finally saw the love between Hannah and Ross that I really never saw between her and Norman or her and Mike, as much as I love both of those characters! The plot itself is well written and well developed, and I really enjoyed reading this book, it was a lot of fun. The ending had a great twist and I didn’t see it coming! As always, I was ever so happy to find the recipes for many of the yummy and tempting treats in the back of the book. I can’t wait to try them out in my own kitchen. Overall, Wedding Cake Murder was a fun read with good writing enhanced by an enjoyable story line and great characters! I am happy to see that the Hannah Swensen series is back on track and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book! I received an ARC of this book, from NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.

    Nineteenth book in series!

    Wedding Cake Murder by Joanne Fluke is the nineteenth book in the Hannah Swensen Mystery series. Hannah Swensen is getting married (but not to Mike or Norman much to my dismay)! Hannah is marrying Ross Barton, an independent producer for KCOW Television (they dated in college). Hannah wants a small wedding because of Mike and Norman (does not want to upset them or throw it in their face). However, it comes to Hannah’s attention that this would not be a wise move (she is being manipulated). So Delores (her mother) and Michelle (her sister) get to plan a big wedding. While they work on the wedding, Hannah is preparing for the Dessert Chef Competition. The competition starts in New York and the winner of the first round gets the hometown advantage (the contest will move to the winner’s hometown). When Hannah wins, everybody heads for Eden Lake, Minnesota. Things are going well until the head judge, Chef Alain Duquesne ends up dead. Hannah sets out to solve the murder, win the competition, and find a wedding dress before her big day! Will Hannah be able to solve the crime (probably better than finding a wedding dress she will like)? Fans of the Hannah Swensen series, you will want to read Wedding Cake Murder. It is a simple book (easy to read though) and the mystery is a piece of cake (pun intended). However, Hannah is finally getting married (just not to Norman or Mike). If you have not read any of the previous books in the series, you do not want to start with Wedding Cake Murder (you will be lost). I give Wedding Cake Murder 3 out of 5 stars. There were too many recipes in this book (yes, there is such a thing). There are twenty-two recipes which takes up a third of the novel. Wedding Cake Murder was not of the same caliber as the earlier books in the series. I think it is time for the Hannah Swensen Mystery series to retire (just being honest). I received a complimentary copy of Wedding Cake Murder from NetGalley (and Kensington Books) in exchange for an honest evaluation of the novel.

    This series was very entertaining. The storyline was good. Two things that made it annoying was Hannah finding murdered victims constantly in a supposedly small town and the recipes. I bought the books for the story and writing not for a desert cook bookmark. There were pages and pages of recipes in each and every one of the chapter's. If a chapter was 19 pages then 9 were recipes and it got worse each book that went along.

    I wish there had been more clues to allow me to figure out the killer on my own. The motive was not in the clues and made it impossible to figure out. I was also disappointed with who Hannah married in the end.
