I noticed the library no longer carries the later books in the Hannah Swenson series in audiobook format can't say I blame them and as this is an older book in the series, I was surprised when I got two emails from them: one saying that it had been checked out to me, and one saying that they took my recommendation and purchased it.
I almost feel I owe them an apology for that. This is actually a collection of three short stories, the second featuring Joanne Fluke, Laura Levine and L I noticed the library no longer carries the later books in the Hannah Swenson series in audiobook format can't say I blame them and as this is an older book in the series, I was surprised when I got two emails from them: one saying that it had been checked out to me, and one saying that they took my recommendation and purchased it.
Unlike the first one, all three of these stories were read by the same narrator, which was a bit disappointing as it was a bit disjointing to hear the voices of Joanne Fluke's characters as other characters in the last two books.
Plus, she tends to read the female characters with disdain. In Candy Cane Murder, which is book 9. So really, nothing new to see here, other than this was the story that introduces Andrea's whippersnapper cookies which she makes in pretty much every other book following this one - and which Hannah judges very harshly before trying them because Andrea is apparently completely incompetent at everything but selling real estate. I give this one 1-star. I wish I had, as it was as with last time definitely the best of the three. Number 6.

Jaine Austen gets a call from one of her ad clients - a roofer who is suspected of murdering one of his clients, who fell off his newly repaired roof due to loose shingles. Knowing he didn't do it, Jaine sets out to find out who did and in a refreshing change of pace, she actually tries to work with the police rather than thinking she is above them.
While this is only the second book in this series I have listened to, I love this character. I love her cat, Prozac. I am very disappointed my library doesn't carry this series in audiobook as I would be all over it if they did I'll just have to read them instead. Jaine is quirky, makes no apologies for who she is and is just so much fun and easy to relate to. She's someone I could be friends with. The mystery took a few twists and turns including a couple of surprises at the end. I give this one 3. I didn't like the story in "The Gingerbread Cookie Murder," but I was determined to give this series a second chance.
Apparently, this short story is She's just so whiny and needy. For a grown woman with children, she sure acts like a spoiled child. This one starts with the family getting together for Christmas in present day and then goes back to when the sherry-drinking Lucy is pregnant with her second child!! Quiet frankly, it sounded like the house should have been condemned. Pouting over something, Lucy ends up meeting the local librarian and after gifting her with a glass candy cane learns her mother died with the same candy cane shattered around her - a death the librarian always thought her father was responsible for.
With nothing better to do, Lucy sets out to solve the mystery alongside the librarian. At least the librarian was on board, unlike the last one in which Lucy was asked repeatedly to butt out and mind her own business but just couldn't do that due to some unnatural obsession with a kid she'd only met once before.
That right there made this one better. The story itself of trying to solve a 50 year old mystery wasn't bad. I probably would have really enjoyed it if Lucy wasn't so annoying. I'm guessing this is what lead her to becoming a part-time sleuth, but to be honest, I really don't care.

This is a very short stroy, so keeping that in mind I am trying to write a review based on the length. Also, alot of recipes were in this book.
It felt like a filler in a way. We meet a few new characters and the murder is short and sweet. I feel like it could have been expanded into a normal size book.

I didn't have high expectations with this one knowing it was a shorter book. I am left just feeling eh about the whole thing but I still giggled at a few points in the story! But we do get a cute little surprise in the end regarding Bethany. This one is short, sweet and to the point!

I haven't been reading this series but I thought I would give it a try. Being that I haven't gotten to know Jaine Austen I am not sure of her past or her character. This seemed to push the edge of a cozy mystery for me. But I love Prozac!! He reminds me alot of Moishe! I did keep getting the two worlds confused. Overall, it was an ok story but I am not sure I will read the full series. This was just a sad short story. Overall it was ok but not enough to make me want to read any of the series.
Bundling three short stories by three cozy authors, featuring each of their series characters celebrating Christmas is a nice idea but bundling stories released in for is a bit of a stretch. Heartwarming, charming. My second favorite is toss up bet Bundling three short stories by three cozy authors, featuring each of their series characters celebrating Christmas is a nice idea but bundling stories released in for is a bit of a stretch. Both were well written if you like those characters.
enter Unfortunately the latter never appealed to me and still doesn't while the former went too long in deciding whether to marry Mike or Norman. There were recipes in the books to the level in Fluke's that it was more recipe than story. A nice Christmas re-read that I had expected would be new reads. At least it was inexpensive!
