time Hannah solves the mystery although predictable its a fast paced good sleuth The recipes are delicious to read about and definitely swoon worthy There are many wonderful recipes here that the author bviously spent a great deal Pawn Shop of effortn Its always disconcerting when a author makes such a departure from a well loved character and reading about Hannah as a subservient woman with no Alchemy opinion fromne who was living a wonderful happy independent life is hard to take I am sure the next book will have Hannah back in her game the ex husband long gone and Hannah back to another great sleuth with her side kicks her real loves Mike and Norman While it is Maury, Wednesday's child obnoxious and unreal how they hover and help her with every detailf her life they are her true loves and its time the author recognized that for the readers I look forward to the next in series and Incomparable our beloved character retuning to the bakery and enjoying lifence again In every life rain must fall and for Overwhelmed by the Spirit: Empowered to Manifest the Glory of God Throughout the Earth our beloved Hannah this book is definitely her stormy sea In the 21st bookf this series Hannah is Momentum: Creating Effective, Engaging and Enjoyable Meetings on her honeymoon cruise with new husband Ross when she learns her mother Delores heard the murderf her friend Victoria Bascomb Victoria a retired actress lived in the apartment directly below Delores s penthouse After hearing screams and a gunshot Delores found the body and Boundary Broken (Boundary Magic, of course she wants Hannah to solve the murder Since Victoria s death left anpening in the local theater group money needs to be raised and Hannah comes up with a banana cream pie eating contest While she plans all this Hannah continues to ask uestions and come up with her list f suspectsI liked this story better than the last Christmas themed ne This cozy ends n a cliffhanger and I m intrigued where the author intends to take Hannah s futureI love all the recipes at the ends f the chapters and plan n buying the ingredients to make the brownie candy tomorrow Some f the recipes are detailed than Careless others even with Hannah s tips but thisne appears to be simple enough for a not real good cook like me I used to like this series It used to be charming and delightful in a silly sort Competing for the Cup of way with a cute baker investigating murders when she s not baking up some wonderful items in her bakery Now it has become trite and seems written for dummies as every action that is taken needs an inordinate amountf explaining between characters Also the main character has come back from her honeymoon and clearly has lost any sense Fat Land of independence and personal spunk Her words seem horribly choreographed and her mind is like thatf a woman afraid to displease her new husband when she remembers he s there In addition all the supporting characters are very ne dimensional and absolutely not believable where in the world would two men thrown ver for Low Life: Lures and Snares of Old New York one woman s affection become best friends and give a joint wedding present then have dinner with the new couple as they come back from their honeymoon While the recipes in the book were interesting though laden with butter and sugar so watch your arteries the writing does little to hold the story together fromne cookie to another I didn t think this could be any worse than 2016 s awful Christmas Caramel Murder but alas it was After the initial discovery f the murder victim by Hannah s mother Delores absolutely nothing relevant happens until the last few chapters when the murderer is revealed and f course threatens to do Hannah in Right Backstage Passes: Life on the Wild Side with David Bowie on the heelsf her rescue comes a cliffhanger some form f which many readers myself included have been expectingThe book is chock full f irrelevant get togethers pointless information we have to be told twice that red and green are the colors Elmer of Christmas for example and endless inane chit chat that does nothing to move an already non existent plot along Worstf all any investigating anyone actually does leads absolutely nowhere so there aren t any real murder suspects wha As a result the reader can easily figure The Red Stockade out whodunit because any real clues that finally show up near the end point innly ne direction The main things that do happen are Mass uantities f coffee are consumed morning noon and night how do these people sleep and all the reuisite recipes that are baked r cooked are pronounced f course delicious amazing r lauded using ther superlatives After umpteen books The Something of this predictable sameness I wonder what would happen if JUST ONCE something Hannahr someone else made would fail to amaze Hannah is having a hard time adjusting to married life as she acknowledges that she wed in haste and therefore knows alarmingly little about her husband Ross r how to do marriage Mike and Norman continue to help and hover ver Hannah like puppy dogs as though nothing significant r change worthy has ccurred Granted there probably is nothing else these set characters can do unless Fluke writes them ut f the books The One Big Happy Family sensibility that has informed the series from day Shivers: four in one: The Enchanted Attic/A Ghastly Shade of Green/The Locked Room - The Awful Apple Orchard one which got irritating and stale largely due to Hannah s inability to choose between her two beaus is now even unbelievable if not a tad strangeThenly reason I plan to soldier L'Oracle de votre subconscient : I-Ching, Le Livre des transformations on through the next book is that I m curious to see how whoever writes it Joannar her son manages to extricate Hannah ut f the weird mess she s gotten herself into I have read every book in this series I ve always loved this series and always get excited to see another book coming Les Naufrags d'Ythaq T03 : Le soupir des toiles outHowever this book made me crazy for several reasons1 The politeness the family showed to eachther What happened to all the snarky comments between the sisters and their mom I loved how the were portrayed as a real family this book portrays them as fake2 The ridiculousness The Royal Joust of Hannah not knowing how to use a cell phone It just seemed really wrong and made her seem dumb3 Ross and Hannahomg do they even know eachther The dialogue between them was truly a put American Maharajah off The whole marriage seemed like a shamPartf me thinks that a different author wrote this book because I can t imagine Ms Fluke would have written a story so fragmentedI had such high hopes for this book and I was really disappointedI will read the next book f course because I have to see how this plays utI voluntarily read an ARC f this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley Meh This series used to be cute and charming but since Hannah verthrew her Squeamish About Sushi: And other Food Adventures in Japan own love triangle with Norman and Mike for Ross it s lost my attention With each book Joanne Fluke seems to write Hannah into a holef stupidity She really has no idea how to see that she s missed calls r text messages All the while sending ther text messages The Quarterback's Crush or having her phone ringern Makes no senseAlso Hannah seems lost in the Red Owl local. Eden and turn domestic daydreams into reality But when her mother’s neighbor is discovered murdered in the condo downstairs reality becomes a nightmarish investigation Victoria Bascomb nce a renowned stage actress was active in the theater community during her brief appearance in town and made thro.

Grocery store but ne Drawing the Human Head of the recipes mentions I bought mine at the Whole Foodslive bar Twin Block Functional Therapy: Applications in Dentofacial Orthopedics ok sure Overall I d like to see Hannah wise up and stop acting like a dimwit I think I m done with this series Inne chapter Hannah spends uite a bit DIY Projects for the Self-Sufficient Homeowner: 25 Ways to Build a Self-Reliant Lifestyle of time at the grocery store wondering what a pale lager is in termsf beer Each beer n the shelf states clearly the type f beer it is It would have been as simple as her reading the labels to see which were pale lagers Please stop writing this character as so helpless For someone who is supposedly logical and smart enough to solve crimes before the local Police Department Hannah sure is real world dumb I m starting to get a little sad this book Banana Cream Pie Murder is the 21st f 24 cozy mystery novels written in the Hannah Swensen series by Joanne Fluke I ve nly got three left I was awarded the next two via NetGalley and I ll need to buy the last Dead Man Riding (Nell Bray, one when it s released this fall then I ll have to wait months Oh no I ve managed not to read any spoilersn what s happened in the next three books nor share anything too big in my reviews to ruin it for thers but based n the way this ne ended with the first major cliffhanger ever I m worried Is it all a sham Oh noIn this caper Hannah s newly married after finally choosing ne Pontius Pilate of her three suitors throughout the series She picked the least likelyne and something tells me that there s a reason for it in the future books As she settles into married life she asks the basic uestions Do I have to cook dinner for him Should we tell each Livin de Life other everything Will he put me first always Interesting ideas I mean I get she comes from a town where manyf the women look at it as their responsibility to cook their husband s dinner so I don t take any Aeralis offense to it nor shouldthers as this is representing something traditional from the past not necessarily correct Be CentsAble: How to Cut Your Household Budget in Half or something to promote as good but still it fits with the series and character type On the flip side she also says I ll do what I want with mywn time I m not tied to the hip with him At least she stood up for herself thereThat said the mystery was good up until the finish Talk about a dark horse coming in to be the killer in the last 2 chapters The process Academic Inbreeding and Mobility in Higher Education: Global Perspectives of elimination forther suspects was clever and good as usual but I did feel a tad bit gipped in the end Hmm why is GR telling me gipped isn t a word Oh well back to the review I d have liked to see something a little stronger but the rest Radio Crackling, Radio Gone of the book was hilarious and fun to watch all the character development Delores found the body this time Michelle is turningut to be the best sister ever The mayor is the scapegoat for everything And wow where is this police force Always missing until Hannah s caught the killer HaCan t wait for it s my self indulging silly and entertaining fun This book can be turned into the perfect drinking game Keep reading and you ll find The Legend of Joaquin Murrieta: California's Gold Rush Bandit out whyI ve read andwn every ne f Joanne Fluke s Hannah Swensen Mystery series I ve always loved the recipes and have tried uite a few Maritime Academy Graduate: Memoir Of A Third Mate out for myself much to the enjoymentf my family For the most part I ve liked the stories as well because to me they re like junk food books you read them as a treat so you can turn ff the world for a while I don t read them to gain some better understanding f the world to find some emotional attachment have an epiphany look for that uote that will change my Trouble Looking for a Place to Happen outlook etc they re just a fun way to pass the timeDid I mention how great the recipes are I ve made some tasty dinners and really wowed my kids and family with somef her desserts My Dressed for Thrills: 100 Years of Halloween Costumes and Masquerade only complaint is that it s seriously made me want a food processor because she has so many that sound good but reuirene The few times I ve tried ne f those and tried to create a workaround for not having a processor it hasn t worked From Paella to Porridge: A Farewell to Mallorca and a Scottish Adventure out wellAs far as the stories themselves I venly ever had 2 main and consistent problems One it s a running part On Toby's Terms of the plot lines that Hannah is technologically inept to the point she didn t get a cell phoner computer until nearly this last book and there are ver 20 in the series Even when she did she constantly doesn t seem to know how to use them It seems as if Fluke has placed her series in modern times so I have a VERY HARD TIME believing r understanding why she would create a character who is young AND Max Lerner: Pilgrim in the Promised Land owns a business wouldn t have either a cellr computer especially a computer It also makes NO SENSE that nce they bought each f these the character would have such a hard time understanding how to use them It seems completely inaccurate unrealistic and unfair to her readers to expect them to buy this In Banana Cream Pie Murder that running gag makes a huge part Indiscretion of the plot because atne point Hannah is having a meltdown Indiscretion over her husband goingn a business trip without telling her nly to later find ut he called her cell and text her multiple times but because she s so technologically inept she never got the messages and didn t think to check My husband and I communicate multiple times a day via Soul Dust our cells even if it s just a text letting thether know we were thinking about them and if I haven t heard from him the first thing I do is check my cell BECAUSE IT IS 2017 This ignorance The Dyfed Enigma: Unidentified Flying Objects in West Wales of technology thing needs to end NOW It s just not funnyTwo Hannah s love life There s been a back and forth love triangle goingn for about 20 books between her and 2 6S: The 6S Review, Issue 2 other male characters When I saw a wedding theme book was coming I felt this huge sensef relief Fluke was finally going to end it and have Hannah settle down because the triangle was as irritating as her tech issues Only when the time came she had Hannah marry some throw away character who has never had a major part in her life at least in the books The character has rarely been mentioned and she married him after Blackbird only dating for like 2 seconds It was such a slap in the face to her readers who have hung in there for this long as it made no sense Then it got worse in Banana Cream Pie Murder which is the first book to actually portray her married life It startsff right away showing their marriage just isn t going to work the pseudo husband doesn t seem to have any idea who Hannah really is and it s as if the stage has been set for them to split up in the very near future There s never a portrayal Midwest Maize: How Corn Shaped the U.S. Heartland of them actually clicking no scene that assures the reader Fluke didn t just screw us allver by throwing this guy in there because as the author she couldn t make up her Surly Bonds own mind who to choose in the love triangle should ve been Norman by the way he built her a flipping house The marriage NEVER gets any better throughout the booknly worse until you feel like she set Hannah up in this sorry excuse Sex, Lies, and Videotape of a relationship inrder to create plotlines for future books which considering how the book ended proved my very belief The Sanford Guide to Hepatitis Therapy 2016-2017 on this matterNow the Drinking Game Ross Hannah s sorry excuse for a husband CONSTANTLY calls her Cookie Much later in the book it s explained that apparently when she knew him eons ago in college that was his nickname for her because she liked to baked cookies yes I know it shows how incredibly witty and intelligent this guy is eye roll Anyways for whatever the reason Fluke seemed to need to impress upon her readers Ross love for calling Hannah Cookie by using it soften I started to feel like I needed a drink if I read that Syzygy: Reflections on the Monastery of the Seven Rays one time which led me to my first ever Hannah Swensen Murder Mystery epiphany You must take a shot sipf wine whatever EVERY TIME he calls Hannah Cookie and I promise you ll be passed ut n the floor by chapter 10 You ll thank me as it will help with the irritation Whore Stories: A Revealing History of the World's Oldest Profession over this plot deviceThe book is what it is there s some really fabulous recipes in here I ll be tryingut this week The murderer wasn t someone I saw coming right away so that was nice and it ended The Paper Wife on a decent cliffhanger so I ll be curious to see what she s going to do in her next boo. Ngsf enemies along the way Did a random intruder murder the woman as police claim r was a deadlier scheme at play As Hannah peels through countless suspects and some new troubles f her wn solving this crime and living to tell about it might prove trickier than mixing up the ultimate banana cream
