residents suspected Hannah Swensen would go from idealistic newlywed to betrayed wife in a matter of weeks But as a deadly mystery unfolds in town, the proof is in the pudding.When The Cookie Jar becomes the setting of a star studded TV special about movies filmed in Minnesota, Hannah hopes to shine the spotlight on her bakery not the unsavory scandal swirling around her personal life But that s practically impossible with a disturbing visit from the shifty character she once believed was her one and only love, a group of bodyguards following her every move, and a murder victim in her bedroom Now, swapping the crime scene in her condo for her mother Delores s penthouse, Hannah and an old flame team up to solve a case that s messier than an upended chocolate cream pie As suspects emerge and secrets hit close to home, Hannah must serve a hefty helping of justice to an unnamed killer prowling around Lake Eden before someone takes a slice out of her Get A Copy Kindle Store

to try and experience a wider variety About two years ago, I jumped back into its safety and caught up to the latest one that is, until Chocolate Cream Pie Murder was published or will be in the coming weeks I won it via NetGalley and had to devour it today How exciting to catch up in Hannah s life especially after the new about Ross If you haven t read the last few books, stop reading here If you have, it s okay to continueI loved Ross in the beginning I wanted Hannah to choose him I loved Norman than Mike, but they d gotten old after 20 books I needed something fresh, and it appeared Hannah did too, since she wouldn t accept either s marriage proposal for years It wasn t that she didn t want to get married She did Just couldn t decide who On a whim tho, she said yes to Ross And her troubles began For weeks, he was a perfect husband Then he disappeared Then it turned out he was already married LOUSE Fluke ruined a perfectly good character I ll have a hard time forgiving her, but that s life and it made for good drama.I enjoyed this book We see the aftermath of Ross s craziness We see Hannah s recovery I love revisiting all the characters in these books because I want to live in Lake Eden, Minnesota, blizzards and all Can I move there please Okay that might be going a tad far, but this book showed signs of getting back to the norm before we took a downward turn in the late teens of the series That said, it s not completely good news on all fronts At the sacrifice of family and friends we adore, the supporting characters in this book are some newer ones and some we hadn t known too well I miss the old gang, but they ll be back soon, I m sure.The mystery was okay It was a weird setup No one died until 80% into the book We knew who would die, but along the way, the suspects hadn t built up Or so we thought Ultimately, I didn t like the structure in this one, but I did like the story itself Fluke will always have a fan in me I hope this means Norman gets his chance now as Mike already had a wife I suppose Norman did too, but she was murdered Eh, what am I saying, I can t decide I m the male version of Hannah Just wait til the end I knew the cliffhanger was coming It had to happen Fluke s as bad as me with ending our books in such a manner But I m pretty certain it will mean something else when we get to the next one I HOPE SO AT LEAST flag 59

THE first Then there wasThe Event A misstep by a main character that threw all of us Hannah fans into chaos What She did WHAT With Who And thenHE did WHAT Rabble rabble rabble Get a rope We all wanted to KILL he who shall not be named R The great jerk Every single one of us volunteered to pop in to do it, too And not cozily I had to wait for a year to get my hands on this book The minute my review copy downloaded to my IPad, I informed my family I was retreating in to my lair I didn t wash the supper dishes.I didn t do any of my normal routine I had to read this book Immediately I made hot tea, put on my PJs hours earlier than usual, and dived into this book I binged the whole thing Finished at 1 a.m and was incredibly tired this morning when I got up at 5 30 to a sink full of last night s dishes , but completely happy in my choices I have a few mixed emotions about this newest book On one hand, I am elated at some of the plot points, even though there was no murder or investigation until almost the very end of the book On the other hand, I felt the story was very much padded by overly lengthy recipe sections and long discussions of food by the characters BUTter several books where the writing was to be blunt bad and the plots just not up to Hannah standards.is book was BETTER No klunky bad dialogue or extreme over telling by characters It seems Hannah is coming back to old times I can handle some obvious padding recipes are an intrinsic part of this series and always have beenso I m ok with it Plus YUM there are some really good ones this time around because it is obvious that our reviews and constructive criticism were read and taken to heart Editing much better this time I am chuffed My biggest mixed emotion moment is about the end The last sentence is a bombshell And, once again, Joanne Fluke has me waiting a year to find out what happens next Well played, Joanne Well played Eagerly awaiting the next book Chocolate Cream Pie Murder is the 24th book in the Hannah Swensen series Normally it isn t really necessary to read the series in orderbut this time, it s probably a good idea to have read at least the last few books in the series to fully understand the plot This series is a fun, light hearted culinary cozy mystery series The plots are lightd recipes are included at the end of most chapters No spurting blood No cursing No graphic sex Definitely cozy After 19 years, I am committed to this series I read each book as soon as it comes outd I will until the very last one Andcause this one was better and I feel that the opinions of reviewers and readers were heard and valued.I m giving this full stars Is it a literary masterpiece No s a fun cozy mystery that I stayed up half the night reading And, I feel this author connects with her readers That deserves a perfect score from me And I m happily waiting for the next Hannah book I voluntarily read an advanced readers copy of this book from Kensington via NetGalley All

don t think this book was as bad as the last few in the series Maybe someone is trying to clean up the mess and listen to readers It seems someone on team Joanne may be listening to us readers because this book has the first iteration of Hannah calling Delores Mom and Mommy instead of Mother In the book even Delores is surprised and blurts our that Hannah hasn t called her Mom or Mommy for years and she actually THANKS Hannah for calling her Mommy Poor Delores, even she hates Hannah and Michelle calling her Mother all of the time Other than that revelation a few things stood out such as the author feeling the need to point out that Hannah was going to watch a movie on her flat screen television welcome to modern day Hannah Great job updating that old black and white set Weird scenarios are still happening between Michelle and Hannah with a conversation included about what to make for breakfast wherein Michelle thinks for a moment and them remembers the exact location of a pack of shredded cheese in Hannah s fridge I think there s one on the second shelf, right next to the sliced ham great job Michelle This book is mostly about Ross and I think readers who despised him basically all of us will be happy with the outcome But Ross was meant to have gone to school with Hannah which puts them in the same age range However Ross seems to be an elderly man stuck in a young mans body There s a point where Hannah remembers that Ross has velveteen lounge suits with the initials RB on them what the heck is going on Ross Oddly specific fact included in the book award this time goes to Hannah, Sally, and Mike fir conversing about how much alcohol is leftover in beer cheddar soup after cooking Mike can t have any alcohol while on duty and is sad to miss out on the soup Never fear Hannah and Sally are here to tell him how the soup is made on the stove in a large pot wow so some of the alcohol evaporates Hannah wonders exactly how much of the alcohol evaporates, Sally retorts with twenty two percent of the alcohol is fine in twenty minutes If the soup is heated to one hundred eighty degrees great job Dr Sally Mike is convinced by her stats and eats the soup He survives Second prize for this goes to Hannah for regaling Norman with the story of why buffalo plaid is called buffalo plaid Norman is captivated Wtf moment of the book award goes to Delores for asking Hannah Will you have fresh cookies ready for me to taste for breakfast tomorrow morning To which Hannah who lets not forget works in a cookie shops that bakes cookies daily replies Yes, we will, we always have fresh cookies at The Cookie Jar that s great to know Hannah Maybe Delores would have known that by now seeing as how her daughter has owned the cookie shop for years Perhaps once Delores got a stale day old cookie and has been secretly resentful since Who knows There s a part where Hannah wakes up in a king sized bed confused because her bed is queen sized, but in other books dear god why do I know this it s referenced that Hannah s own bed is a huge king sized monstrosity Even in this book it is referenced that Moishe steals Hannah s king sized pillow Go figure Guys attention to detail is everything here It can make or break a fun series Once I have to moan about Michelle and Hannah treating each other so formally as sisters It s so odd that they greet each other daily in the kitchen of Hannah s condo with good morning Hannah and good morning Michelle surely if you are the only two in the room no names are needed A nice hey good morning will suffice I m not sure I ve ever called my siblings by name in morning greetings My two favorite book moments are as follows Firstly Hannah being amused and wanting to giggle when Mike calls her a good girl in the same tone of voice he would praise a dog Now we all know what kind of man Hannah needs in her life right Clearly a canine trainer Secondly Grandma Knudsen being upset that no one suspects her of the murder and says What a pity I d like to think that I might be capable of a bold action like that You re right grandma Murder is indeed a bold action Guys this book was fun again, even though it was peppered with recipes that require a Betty Crocker cake mix instead of you know actually baking a cake from scratch Is Hannah just Sandra Lee in disguise The plot was amusing However there is a disturbing cliff hanger that, if true, will ruin any future book potential If you read this feel free to pm me how you feel about that cliff hanger flag 3 likesLike see review View all 5 comments Paula Ratcliffe

Murder is the latest in the Hannah Swensen series by Joanne Fluke There have been a lot of changes for Hannah in the last few books, so I was anxious to see how some things worked out for her Some minor spoilers may lie ahead so if you re not caught up on the series but I won t give away anything major for the new book As the book opens, we find Hannah faced with the difficult task of telling her fellow Lake Edenites that not only is Ross gone, but that it appears she was never legally married to him at all because he was already married and had returned to his wife Mike and the sheriff s department with assistance from Norman and others have been looking for Ross, and everyone wants to see some kind of justice for the man who not only hurt Hannah, but outright betrayed and deceived her.Eventually Ross turns up, nastier than ever, wanting money that he d set aside After Ross threatens Hannah, she ends up under constant watch by Norman, Mike, and others To top it all off, the town is trying to plan a TV special about movies filmed in the area bringing some other old friends to town , one of Hannah s neighbors is attacked, and finally, a murder victim is found in Hannah s condo As the saying goes, it takes a village, and in this case, it takes Hannah and many of her loved ones to set this mess to rights I m delighted to say that I really liked this book Fans hadn t been thrilled with the developments of the last few books In addition to hating Ross, many readers felt that the writing and dialogue in the past few books hadn t been up to the standard of earlier titles Plus, most of us longed for the spunky, independent Hannah of old.And readers, we got her This book was a definite step back toward the series we all know and love Not only did Hannah seem to be herself again, the book was also a much smoother read than the last few Sure, there were still a couple of over explained conversations and I personally found there to be one too many episodes of the cat racing game , but nothing like the previous few titles and overall, I was invested in the writing and the results It was refreshing that after years of the love triangle, and the ill fated relationship with Ross, romance didn t play a big role in this book I feel confident it will return, but while you could see that both Mike and Norman still care very much for Hannah and she for them , it was nice to see Hannah come back to herself.In the end, Hannah finds some closure on her doomed marriage and the whole mess with Ross, solves the murder case, and still manages to come up with some new cookie and candy recipes for Valentine s Day Speaking of the recipes, I usually just skim over them but some of them really caught my attention this time If you read cozies partly for the food ideas and discussion, I think you ll really want to check out some of the offerings in this book All in all, this is a welcome addition to the series, and I m giving it a solid four stars And based on Hannah s last words in this book I did suspect that might be coming, based on a few hints sprinkled throughout , I will be anxiously looking forward to the next installment Now I only have to

as always is up front and honest so she begins by telling a church full of locals that her marriage was never legal This is is the synopsis we readers and fans have been waiting for But wait, that is far from the end of the this story Hannah is contacted by her nerfious ex UN husband who is demanding money When he becomes threatening and his story becomes clear , Mike and Norman step up to protect Hannah from any harm A million dollars is at stake and her ex continues to threaten her and even shows up at her business with threats As the book progresses Hannah and her crew are trying out numerable receipes amid the stress and all sound heaven sent These are receipes you will enjoy making at home with your family From breakfast casseroles, to cakes and cookies Ms Fluke has truly outdone herself with this book I only wish my Mom were alive to once again cook Ms Fluke s wonderful receipes with me and enjoy them together This is a amazing grouping of receipes that is deserving of having each reader cooking happily in our kitchens When the nefarious ex is found dead in Hannah s home in a brutal murder, the mystery deepens and Hannah is determined to both recover and find out the truth Norman is assigned as her bodyguard and their sweet relationship is growing here with hints for the future The murder does not occur until later in the book so the story has time to develop here and I enjoyed that aspect of the book It was great to read about our old Hannah moving on from this marriage and back to her old self baking and running her business with support from her loving family and friends It is so endearing to this series of the relationships Hannah has built and how kind people are The ending was a complete surprise as was the suspect The twist at the end was a jaw dropper that will surprise all readers This was a wonderful addition to the series and I cannot wait until the next release I highly recommend this book As a fan of the series I was happy to read that

when Hannah s cat and her friend Norman s cat get together These are typical and prevalent in this series, but shouldn t be too much to turn you away.There are plenty of recipes with helpful tips, several of which I m eager to try, including frozen grapes and pub soup.I think this book could be read as a stand alone, but you d have a better understanding of the story if you ve been following

recipes I do enjoy the descriptions of the cookies, but have no desire to make them myself That s what bakeries are for.This series is comforting to me I like revisiting the characters, and the plots

decided it is time to come clean with the residents of Lake Eden and at church she admits to the whole congregation that her marriage was not valid and her husband left her to go back to his wife Hannah is still reeling over the truth of the situation herself but she feels that she owes it to all those friends and neighbors who so generously gave her wedding presents She will gladly give them back to any one who feels that an invalid marriage does not deserve wedding gifts No one who knows and loves Hannah would ever demand a gift back They all know Hannah married in good faith and must be terribly hurt and embarrassed by the whole situation She has already deposited all the money Ross had put in their safety deposit box and in her checking account She may be heart broken but she is no dummy She does not need a man like that in her life He left and she hopefully never have to deal with him again Well, so much for dreams He shows up at her work and demands that she give him the whole 100,000 back right then She tells him it is all in his account and he can get it hisself at the bank He actually frightens her and she calls Mike, her friend and reactive for the police force, to let him know that the man she thought she was married to was back in town and threatening her Things go from bad to worse, the bank is closed for days because of damage done from a recent blizzard and the cheating not for real husband keeps calling and threatening her to get his money Between bodyguards and help from the law and the bank, he should have shown up at the bank on Monday to pick up his money He never shows That is because he is dead in Hannah s bedroom murdered Thankfully, Hannah has an air tight alibi but she cannot let a murder go free No one deserves to die like that Can Hannah find the killer before the killer finds her None of this makes sense to Hannah and she just wants to get her life back together How is she ever going to get past the hurt and the pain of loving some one who used her.This is one great story The ending was something I suspected but still blew me away when it happened I will be impatient for the next book in this series Hat is what I absolutely love about series The development of the characters and their lives The mystery part is always entertaining especially if I can figure out who the killer is before the end but the characters are what keeps me coming back again and again I forgot to mention that I won this book in a giveaway but I would have read it even without that Joanne Fluke is a wonderful writer She has created this whole town full of people that you feel like are your neighbors and you want to know what is happening in their lives She centers it around a mystery and it makes for some very nice reading I recommend you start at

    5. I ll open with saying that I don t think this book was as bad as the last few in the series Maybe someone is trying to clean up the mess and listen to readers It seems someone on team Joanne may be listening to us readers because this book has the first iteration of Hannah calling Delores Mom and Mommy instead of Mother In the book even Delores is surprised and blurts our that Hannah hasn t called her Mom or Mommy for years and she actually THANKS Hannah for calling her Mommy Poor Delores, e I l [...]


    6.

    7. I m a huge fan of this series and I found this book to be an excellent addition.Hannah still can t believe what Ross has put her through, and when he threatens her life, residents of Lake Eden gather together to support their favorite baker.I found this story captivating and I was eager to solve the mystery The author left us with a cliffhanger and I can t wait to see what happens next.
