    1. What I thought in 2012: I'm loving this series will have to incorporate it in every other book to catch up! And then I tried, but sometimes they get so sugary!Connie Mac is the focus here and it's all about cooking and the winter carnival. It's an early book in the series and helps you create a strong understanding of Hannah. I wonder if they'll make this one into a TV movie. I don't think it has been yet.About MeFor those new to me or my reviews here's the scoop: I read A LOT. I write A LOT. An [...]


    2. 4 delicious stars!!!This is the third book in the Hannah Swensen series, with each book centering around a murder mystery in her tiny town of Lake Eden. I must say that even though bodies keep popping up (O_O) I would still love to visit such a cute little town.There's something to be said for establishing a long-term relationship between the readers and the characters in a book series. When written properly, you get the effect we have here, which is the desire to know more about the characters [...]



    3. Genre:Cozy Mystery Series:Hannah Swensen series #3:: 5 Pretty Little Stars :: I don't get a lot of time to read cozy mysteries because I am heavily involved in romance books but this one really hit the spot for me. I absolutely ADORE this series. It is filled with mystery, suspense, and some of my absolute favorite characters of all time! Anyone who is looking to getting into this genre I highly recommend starting with this series. It's very well written and a lot of fun. Not to mention the reci [...]


    4. Brief summaryHannah Swensen is really good at finding dead bodies. In this book, she finds the body of a famous cookbook author/tv celebrity chef in the kitchen of her bakery.What I likedA few of the recipes look really good. I think I'm going to try the blueberry muffin one. I like the addition of blueberry pie filling in the batter. What I didn't likeUnfortunately, most of this book. The characters are so flat to me. I don't feel like I'm a part of the story at all. Hannah's love interests are [...]

    6. If you like a light reading mystery novel, you'll enjoy this book. If you like an exciting and intriguing suspense full of surprises and twists and turns you'll want to pass. However if you like baking recipes you'll LOVE this book! If you only can eat Gluten Free then you'll hate the recipes (Same goes for lo-cal, fat free, lo-carb, Atkins, etc). If you like simple to follow clues and easy to read dialogue you'll like this book. If you hate simple to follow clues and easy to read dialogue then [...]


    7. In her third top-of-the-line culinary cozy (after 2001's Strawberry Shortcake Murder), the delightful amateur sleuth Hannah Swensen once again faces murder and mayhem with good cheer. To fight the late February doldrums, Lake Eden, Minn is about to celebrate its first winter carnival with ice sports on the lake, activities for children and Hannah's delicious cookies from her shop, the Cookie Jar. The whole town is involved, and even Hannah's mother, who usually spends her time trying to get Hann [...]


    8. It's another Hannah Swensen mystery filled with savory treats I must attempt in my own kitchen, murder, and mayhem. This one involves a fellow cook, one from television, and the body ends up in Hannah's own kitchen. Yikes!Check it out. Once more, it's all about the characters. There's some great one liners in this one that are absolute gems!


    9. Good, pleasant, easy read. This was the first of the Hannah Swenson series I have read. I love the Goldy the caterer series by Diane Davidson Mott and this was equally enjoyable. I am planning to pick up the first two this weekend so I have something to read now that my semester of school is over and I can pleasure read again!


    10. Holy crap I really am liking this series. I can't say much because it's the 3rd book in the series but I love that we continue to learn so much about each character. The murders have all been different and really interesting.


    11. The first Joanne Fluke book I read was Cherry Cheesecake Murder and I thought the killer was obvious, but this book was a lot more interesting and I only figured out the killer about a page before when the story revealed the killer.These books are all about a woman named Hannah Swensen who owns a cookie store called The Cookie Jar, which always means the stories are interesting because they're talking about sweets, but this one was especially interesting because it's about a Winter Carnival that [...]


    12. Read as part of #MarchMysteryMadnessIt's been a while since I read the previous book in this series, but it was very easy to get back into it and it was nice revisiting the characters. Of course the recipes all look and sound yummy. I enjoyed the mystery aspect of it, but the love lines are getting on my nerves. Three books in and we still have a love triangle. I'm not a fan of that because it seems like she's just stringing both guys along with no intention of making a decision. It sure seems, [...]


    13. I enjoyed this third book in the series very much. I especially like the relationship between Hannah and her sister . . . they are different enough for there to be some tension, yet they are so closely tied. It is obviously implausible that Hannah would be the one who always finds the murder victim, but this is woven in to the story with humor. In this particular story the suspect was rather obvious to me, and perhaps to most readers. But still a very enjoyable mystery with interesting character [...]


    14. Another good one. These recipes seem to be really good too. I'll have to try them. Too bad Joanne Fluke doens't just sell a cookbook with all her recipes in them, it would be a lot easier than photo copying them all!




    15. Words can't describe this book! It's now February in the town of Lake Eden, Minnesota. The town is preparing for the annual Winter Carnival. Instead of the town's own Hannah Swenson, baking the came, the famous Connie Mac, known for her cooking TV show and her cookbooks, is also coming to town. She is there to sign books and promote her new shop that will be opening in the mall. While the town is charmed by her personality, Hannah knows not to trust it. For this "Cooking Sweatheart' may be sweet [...]

    17. So I see a book named “The Blueberry Muffin Murder” and think “Wow! With a title like that, it has to be good, or at least fun.” Well, I've read several books in this series. Every time I do, I'm disappointed at how the book seemed a little dull. For this sort of thing, I'm looking for a cozy mystery with a slice of small town life ala Monica Ferris or Lilian Braun. Instead, the small town aspects seem a little generic and the mysteries seem a little forced and padded to fill a book-leng [...]


    18. This book is a lame duck. Uninteresting story, uninteresting sideplots, uninteresting characters. The mystery was incredibly easy to solve (for the reader). Meanwhile, the main sleuth and her friends treat it like some frivolous party-game. Nobody (except the cops, because it's their *job* though they don't see to be any good at it) takes into consideration that people actually died. The whole murder-solving thing is treated as some sort of hobby for the main character. There's no respect at all [...]


    19. Written very much in the style and using the vocabulary of the Nancy Drew series, which I liked; reading this felt almost nostalgic! Well-rounded characters, with enough individuality to make you feel them as the population of a small town. I saw the culprit from a mile away, though, and it seemed targeted at a fairly immature audience - if this business of "which guy should I choose, they both seem to love me" goes on through the entire series, count me out. I liked the mystery and the characte [...]


    20. I choose this book because it was recommended as an audio book. I thought it was a cute who-done-it that was not as good as a Stephanie Plum book, but of the same vain. Hannah Swensen owns a cookie shop. A famous tv cook is found murdered in Hannah's shop and this forces her to close down until the murderer can be found. Rather than sit by and wait, Hannah chooses to investigate herself and finds more dead bodies along the way.Again, it was cute and when I went home I found myself wanting to go [...]


    21. I want to write a letter to this author and tell her how much I hate her book and her childish writing and that I wish she would give me the time back that I wasted on this pitiful excuse for a book. All these authors begging and dying to get books published and she gets published? I'm pissed off after reading this.


    22. My favorite yet! Andrea and Hannah really should go into the line of police work. They are much better detectives than Mike and Bill, by a long shot! This book was well written and I was glad Joanne didn't have a lot of fluffy dialogue this time. I loved the setting of the story taking place during the Winter Carnival. It made the book more cozy for me. Can't wait to start on number 4!!


    23. It gets one star because I couldn't finish it. The book just was so completely unbelievable that I couldn't stand to waste any more time reading it. Woman gets murdered in bake shop. Bake shop owner finds dead woman. Police tell bake shop owner not to interfere with the investigation. Bake shop owner starts her own investigation? Really?


    24. This series just keep getting better and better and I like seeing more of the underlining characters coming more into play. This book had everything from ghosts to secrets and much more. I enjoyed this 3rd book in the series and look forward to more.


    25. Is it my imagination or are Hannah and Andrea getting dumber? You'll know whodunit from the beginning, but the recipes look good.


    26. Caught 'ya this time! This mystery was more interesting and the pacing much faster. I appreciate the sister act between Hannah and Andrea (very relatable), but I now roll my eyes on three things - the very obvious attempt at the love triangle; Hannah always finding the DBs and Hannah not pulling her weight at her own shop. Maybe there is still hope with the next few titles, as I still can't get why this series is well loved in the cozy genre. I might be missing something.


    27. This was another fun and light mystery. The recipes in the book sound really good too. I managed to guess who the murderer was in this book without really thinking about it, but I always like when I can guess in these books. I'm definitely interested in reading the next book in the series.
