characters Devil's Food Cake MurderPiss you off I can t even properly express my disgust Thankfully I consumed most of it during a six hour car Der Ritter und die Bastardtochter ride during which Ieally couldn t have been doing anything better with my life All I wanted was a uick cozy have been doing anything better with my life All I wanted was a uick cozy to take the edge off in between bigger take the edge off in between bigger but man I can t even see the 8 year old version of myself thinking this was anything worth finishing I implore you don t give this chick your money Don t even check it out of your library and give her money by proxy If you Chinaberries and Crows re that hard up for unoriginalecipes try Taste of Home magazine or a Google search Uck Poor grammar Boringly predictable plot Unbelievable and annoying characters Tedious detail with no imagination Unnatural epetitive dialogue An unfinished ending in order to get you to ead the next book in the series which I will never do Poor writing and story construction Since this is on NY Times Bestseller list I m Blessed Are the Wicked really concerned about my fellow Americaneaders The book is a bust but there are some good ecipes Sometimes I wonder why I like these so much I don t make the ecipes which are increasing in number With Every Book It every book it taking up a lot of space I get annoyed by Hannah who is 30 but acts kind of like a grandma she doesn t know how to use email and cell phones and is shocked at any implication of sex and I freuently feel like the author has not been back to Minnesota in a while eferring to MN s basketball team as the Minnesota Wild is unforgivable The mysteries aren t even the focus of the book any it s about evealing ecipes and character development But they are a fun fast ead and I do like the characters Will she ever choose between Mike and Norman What will Moishe get into next Who is Delores flirting with now Will anyone ever mention that serving only cookies at a catered function is Reform, Red Scare, and Ruin ridiculousI loved the cliffhanger ending After so many books where Hannah s love affairs were leftight where they started this was Grauwacht refreshing and I m looking forward to the next installment when I will not make theecipes and will chafe at Hannah s elderly behavior Hopefully Hannah s new nemesis will be the next one to turn up baked in a pie or somethin. Ng uestions She soon discovers that the good Reverend wasn't uite the saintly fellow he appeared to be It will take some digging to find the culprit but Hannah is sure of one thing even the most half baked murder plot can be oh so dead. As a ule I enjoy these books I
visit each new installment in the series witheach new installment in the series with same inexplicable fascination of a family spending a few days in Disney World glad to be there taking in the faux scenery but ever so glad to eturn home to comfortable shores devoid of excess the bad comfortable shores devoid of excess The bad always gets caught The setting is familiar and cozy albeit snowy and cold And aside bad guy always gets caught The setting is familiar and cozy albeit snowy and cold And aside drinking far far too much coffee the characters are uirky fun and fairly predictable Plus every time I Lies, Damned Lies, and History read one of the Hannah Swensen books I meminded strongly of eighth grade and The New World reading Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder secretly with a flashlight under the covers like I did with The Notebook maybe because theye all basically the sameWith all of that in mind however I found this book a little less palatable than the You Wouldn't Want to Be an Inca Mummy!: A One-way Journey You'd Rather Not Make rest of them mostly because there was one thing I deemed an unforgiveable transgression on the part of the author And it wasn t the stitled unnatural dialogue that borders on the sickeningly cheerful It wasn t the fact that watching Bambi is deemed aite of passage for a six year old I had two eactions to this one WTF If it s that sad it makes the girls cry for days don t watch it ite of passage or not and two Well I ve never seen it and I turned out fine Or the overkill of the details because in some cases that s cool like in The Scarlet Letter Or the predictability of the ending Or the writing which at best can be described as mediocre Or the gag inducing descriptions of Mike s kisses yes I said that It wasn t even the horrific descriptions of some of the The Fashion Industry and Its Careers: An Introduction recipes Chocolate Euphoria Cookie Bars for example are six layer cookie bars with chocolate cookie crumbs on the bottom semi sweet chocolate chips next miniature marshmallows on top of that white chocolate chips sprinkled on the marshmallows chocolate cereal layered on top with some milk chocolate chips over everything and a dentist eats them with fervour Or the excessive use of hyperbolic language making everything devastating or horribly wrong Or the selfighteous attitudes of every Single Character Or even Hannah s incessant and unnecessary correction of grammar yes I said that tooNo I overlooked. These days everyone in Lake Eden Minnesota is buzzing with activity and Hannah Swensen is no exception But no matter how busy she may be Hannah can always find time to help a friend in need especially when there's a murder to investiga.
