Raspberry Danish Murder (Hannah Swensen #22) Reviews
Raspberry Danish Murder has brought back the Hannah we've all come to love.
Still trying to come to terms with the disappearance of her husband Ross, Hannah leaves no stone unturned as she continues to search for answers.
With the sudden death of her husband's assistant, Hannah has the feeling that something just isn't right.
Of course Hannah has the help of her best friends Mike and Norman, and her sister Michelle is back as well.
It was nice having Hannah back as her usual self even though she was ...more
I tried very hard to like this book. So many recipes, so many cookies, I know that is her schtick, but it was overkill for me. The only thing that kept my interest was the mystery about where her new husband went. Maybe I will give the next one another chance.
It’s November in Lake Eden, Minnesota. Cold weather has settled in and snow has begun to make its regular appearance. Unfortunately, Hannah Swenson is unable to enjoy the change in seasons; her husband Ross is still missing without a trace. Hannah has hope of his return as he took his keys to their home with him. She worries about her husband and their marriage the longer he is gone.
An opportunity arises for the Cookie Jar, Hannah’s beloved Cookie Shop, and they commit to selling their products ...more
**I voluntarily read this ARC**
Well, it's an improvement over Banana Cream Pie Murder. The writing style is still very confusing. It started out with a juvenile style, then randomly switched to describing the death in detail, and went right back to juvenile. I'm still not sure who the target audience is at this point. Ignoring the weird writing, the mystery was pretty good. I am a little annoyed that it ended on another cliffhanger (but wow, that was a shocking one). Since cliffhangers were neve ...more
Rather interesting characters, but elementary and lackluster writing. In some places the writing is so bad as to be the sort found in chapter books—
"We have a custard for dessert."
"Did you hear they have a custard for dessert?"
"I think I will order the custard for dessert."
(To other character at table)
"Did you know they have a custard for dessert?"
Waitress: "We have an almond custard for dessert."
"An almond custard. How unique."
"A very smooth custard."
"A smooth, almond custard. Yes. I will take ...more
Hannah Swensen is still reeling from the disappearance of her new husband, Ross Barton. He disappeared without a trace, leaving no explanation. When Ross' former assistant at KCOW-TV, P.K. Alesworth, is killed after eating poisoned candy that was left on Ross' desk, Lake Eden police start to investigate to find out if Ross might have been the intended victim, Hannah and her crew, of course, decide to also investigate. Turns out, there are a lot of discrepancies in the things Ross told Hannah abo ...more
This was one of my favorite Hannah Swenson books!❤
Schennagins+Mystery+cats= a fun and captivating read
I couldn’t wait to see what happens next. It kept me up at night. ...more
A sad attempt to revive a dying series. This particular book seemed like a juvenile wrote it. Very little mystery as most of the book was taken up with recipes and food talk. The rest was Hannah obsessing about what was wrong with her that her new husband left and hasn't come back. I hope the author either gets this series back on track or puts it to bed.
