I'm trying to decide about this book. I enjoyed it and am reading the 3rd installment now. And I like the main character, Hannah. But there's something odd about the way the author treats women and the expectations she has of women. Hannah is a strong, independent woman and most of the characters are women which is nice. And Hannah is always saying her mom is old-fashioned for wanting her to get married but then Hannah calls people so and so's "wife" and doesn't give them a name. And she says that her sister's husband "lets" her work. In the 3rd book she talks about how "busy housewives" won't be able to make a fancy dinner assuming that only women make the dinners at home. Don't let any of this stop you from reading these books as they are fun and interesting I just wish more people, especially women, wouldn't buy into the notion that women are limited simply because they are women.

Another good book by Joanne Fluke. Don't read these books if you are hungry as the recipes sound delicious.

I am really enjoying this series. It is lighthearted, easy to read, and just a lot of fun. This particular book had me giggling and smiling all the way through... even though it is about a murder. Hannah is her own woman, something that her mother doesn't want to understand, and she gets herself into the darndest situations. I'll be reading the whole series, I believe.

Hannah Swensen owns a cookie shop in a small town in Minnesota, and some of her recipes are included. After a judge made harsh comments while judging a dessert bake-off, he is found murdered in his garage. He was an abusive husband, so nobody was too upset until a second murder is discovered by Hannah. These are light mysteries with some appeal, but I prefer the books of Diane Mott Davidson, who also includes recipes.
