Raspberry Danish Murder (Hannah Swensen #22) Reviews
Raspberry Danish Murder by Joanne Fluke is the latest A Hannah Swensen Mystery. Hannah Swensen Barton is wondering why her husband disappeared two weeks ago. To get her mind off the conundrum, she is keeping herself busy baking delightful treats for The Cookie Jar. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and people are clambering for baked goods. Hannah gets a late-night call from P.K. Alesworth, Ross’s assistant at KCOW Television, who is using Ross’ car while his is being worked on. It is a vid ...more
I have been such a fan of the Hannah Swensen Mysteries. They’re good, clean, entertaining fun. Well, you know, with murder. But I have to say, I’ve not been overly thrilled with the last few books in the series. As with a good percentage of Hannah fans, I do not like her husband, Ross. I cheered when he disappeared. So, the fact that this book would maybe be Ross free made me excited to read it. But for reasons other than Ross, RASPBERRY DANISH MURDER was not the best book in this series.

Another fun mystery with the lovable Hannah (and Moishe)! The last book left off with a cliffhanger and this one is no different! A well crafted mystery and tempting recipes round out this cozy. You won't be able to resist reading this sweet confection in one sitting!
This is a difficult review to write as I have read all of The Hannah Swensen Mysteries and, for the most part, enjoyed most of them. The last book was an exception to that and sadly, this book isn’t much better. The series is feeling increasingly stale and this book is one of the weakest. I honestly believe that Ms Fluke might better serve Hannah and her readers if she took an extra year off between books, recharged her batteries and wrote the next book with renewed vigor.

I have read every single book in this series! I definitely liked this one more than the last one given that I HATED Ross.......all I want is for the Norman and Mike and Hannah triangle to last forever ;-)
I cannot even with these books any more. They have gotten progressively worse with each one. This book was literally 90% people eating or talking about what they're going to eat, or what they just ate, or how to cook the recipe that appears on the next page. Throw in boringly long pages about random things like how to recycle and scammer phone messages. There was hardly anything about the murder of the week or the investigation into Ross's disappearance, and what did happen, happened off-screen ...more
This series jumped the shark awhile back and I just haven't been able to cut the cord though I was seriously going to stop after the last book and the surprise ending. However, curiosity got the best of me. Raspberry begins where #21 left off, but any active investigation by Hannah doesn't really begin until about the half way mark...way too late for a mystery. Prior (and after) we get WAY too much cookie and food talk. Take that away and the book would be a good 60% shorter.

I was gifted an ebook via Netgalley.
I'm sad to say that this is the last Hannah Swensen book I will be reading. I've made it to 22 and that is an accomplishment, right? I feel like 80% of the book is food now. I love food, don't get me wrong, but there is little plot other than that. In the first book, there was only 7 recipes and this one has 29 recipes, if that tells you anything. The most interesting part to me in this installment was Moishe. I love Moishe.
