Chocolate Cream Pie Murder Hannah Swensen #24

Not even Lake Eden’s nosiest 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 shi One of the first few cozy mysteries I began reading almost fifteen years ago was the Hannah Swensen series by Joanne Fluke For years I adored the series but then I switched to something else 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 dramaI 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 sureThe 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 HannahJust 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
