The baking contest was fun. I found the description of the wedding dress confusing. And yes, I read four of these books in the past two days. They are complete and utter fluff, but I was iced in, and wanted something light.

The mystery portion is well-plotted with several twists have and after this many cases, everyone knows Hannah is investigating.

Mehso-so

Finished another for the #25inFive #Readathon. These books are a puzzle to me. The characters are vapid. The dialogue is idiotic. The plots are occasionally decent mysteries - this one wasn't. But for some reason I feel compelled to read them. I'm convinced if I didn't like the movies so much (& Ali Sweeney as Hannah), I'd have given up on this series long ago. I'll keep reading them, & I actually do enjoy them, but I don't know why.

Traci1 @DivineDiana lol yeah. 13mo
Traci1 @Ruthiella I think that's true. I can just relax and not think for a while. I know it's not going to have anything stressful or sad or anything. 13mo

I have faithfully read every Hannah Swenson book since the first. The last couple have shown a marked decline of the series. This one is ridiculous and so disappointing I wonder if Joanna Fluke has lost interest in writing this series. :(

mabell My sister and I read them faithfully also and felt the same way. Contrived is the best way I could describe the plot. 2y

This is one of those book series I feel safe giving to my grandma, but anyone else I'll tell not to waste their time. The mystery was interesting, but Hannah was such an immature drip it felt like she was serving some weird perfect daughter wish fulfillment for the author. Hard pass.

SusanInTiburon What have you got against your grandma? 😹 4y
Fullaboti @Susanintiburon ha! My grandma hates swearing and loves the Hallmark channel--the perfect demographic for this book. 😆 4y

I'm hate reading this book. I had hoped that maybe all the weird relationship bits would improve from earlier in the series but they haven't. If it turns out Hannah DOESN'T get married at the end if the book, I'll be tempted to toss it across the room.

So far, "Wedding Cake Murder" is reminding me of all the things I loved about this series initially; Hannah isn't as grating as she has been lately, and the bevy of supporting characters is back to being dynamic instead of just a bunch of props. #hannahswensen #jofluke

I know I keep telling myself that I'm tired of this series because Hannah is ridiculous, but I can't seem to stop. #gluttonforpunishment #andcookierecipes #hannahswensen #jofluke
