I have spent 3 months waiting to receive this book. I wish I could say that I wasn't at all disappointed, but I can't. Maybe it was my own fault because I read the book so fast but I don't think so.

Before I begin let me start by saying that I am a huge fan of the Hannah Swensen series. I have read them all several times each. And this book was no different in the fact that I couldn't reach chapter 3 before heading into the kitchen to bake some cookies to eat while reading.

The story gave up the murderer way too easily this time. I like a story that keeps me guessing longer. Unfortunately this book did not.

I grew tired of listening to Hannah complain about her diet. She works at a cookie shop she is suppose to be round and fluffy. That is what makes her lovable.

Hannah did not spend much time at all working this time. One day she blew off work completely and it didn't seem to haze her at all like normal.

Joanne Fluke seem to gloss over the support characters like we didn't care to hear about them. We barely heard at all about Lisa and the Mothers. Being from the Midwest myself keeping up with the characters in the series is like hearing the local gossip about neighbors.

I was glad to see that Hannah may finally be making a decision between her men. I mean come on already how long was she suppose to date 2 men before people started comparing her to Ronnie Ward.

Read the book if you like the series but please do not start the series with this book. I fear that you will be disappointed. Fans, like me, will be awaiting the next book with higher expectations.

I don't know why I keep reading this series, except for the fact that maybe I just have to know what's going on with the annoying Hannah Swensen. Seems like she does less work at her shop and more time dilly dallying around trying to be a detective. A better detective than the entire police force apparently, since they all want her to solve the latest murder after they've been removed from the case. And she gives more and more responsibility for the shop over to her partner, Lisa, so I'm not sure why she ever even bothers showing up there.. oh yeah, that's the "go to" place for everyone to give her all the clues so that she can say she solved the murder in the end. Having said all that, I'm sure I will be reading the next one to come along, just so I can be reassured that she is still annoying as ever.

#11 in the Hannah Swensen series.
A fun book full of quirky characters, cookie recipes and a main character who can't make up her mind between two men.
