Raspberry Danish Murder (Hannah Swensen #22) Reviews
I was very excited to read Raspberry Danish Murder (largely because of the title, not going to lie), but, ultimately, I couldn't plow through it and ended up abandoning it. You may be wondering: what could make a COZY MYSTERY so hard to read? After all, this genre is renowned for being very accessible, and how could a book with the words 'raspberry' and 'Danish' in the title be anything but?
Well, first and foremost, the author unleashes a positive BARRAGE of names on the reader. By the time I go ...more
I don't want to give spoilers for people reading this entire series who are a few books back (of course, there are some in the book's description), but suffice to say that yes, Hanna's Raspberry Danish is at the scene of a murder (obviously by someone else) and it takes five of them working together to solve it. Yes, Mike openly shares information with Hannah, and vice versa. The cliff hanger from the last book remains for much if it, and there may or may not be a partial one at the end of this ...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 usually really enjoy the books in this series, and I haven't read or heard one for a while. It seemed like there was more time than usual, talking about eating food, preparing food, etc. I skip over the recipes at the end of each chapter. I can't make those kinds of things, and eat them. I read other reviews, and a lot of people didn't like Ross, as a husband for Hannah. I looked back on my last review, it seems there wasn't a lot written about Ross, and not much about a wedding or a honeymoon ...more
I absolutely loved this book! The ending was just what I was hoping for! I'm trying not to give anything away but even the book descriptions of these last few books in this series are sort of spoiler-like if all a person has read has been the first books. I had only read books in the beginning but I knew what was coming and I was just curious to find out! So I didn't mind knowing. Now I can go back and read the rest of the series.
If you have not read any later books in this series (from about 18 ...more
Hannah's husband Ross is missing. She's worried about him, so she throws herself into her work. Ross's coworker P.K. is filling in for Ross, using his office and driving his car. When P.K. dies mysteriously, Hannah looks into his death to determine if it was related to Ross's disappearance. Along the way, Hannah learns some new things about her husband.
The 22nd book in the Hannah Swensen series. These cozy mysteries are light and entertaining. A fast read that's good for fans of cozies. Plus, r ...more
Another wonderful offering in the Lake Eden / Hannah Swenson series.
Worried about her missing husband, Hannah is thrown for a loop when his assistant id murdered in Ross' car. The sleuthing group are concerned that's there's a connection and investigate every possibility. They solve the case that seemed to be dead ended and were shocked by a revelation at the end. I can't wait to see where it leads.....you know she isn't going to accept it and roll over.
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.
