Cute and Fun

If you could sum up Sugar Cookie Murder in three words, what would they be?

Cute, fun, and yummy

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

This story did keep me on the edge of my seat as much as a cozy mystery could. It was slightly predictable, but the reasons were not.

Which character – as performed by Suzanne Toren – was your favorite?

I liked Hannah as always. Hannah and her sister.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was a little upset at Mike and how he treated Hannah in this book. He was gruff and a little possessive it seemed.

Any additional comments?

This was not my favorite in the series at all. It was cute and fun, but not the best. There were a couple of things I could just not forgive. I would elaborate, but it would ruin a few plotlines. Overall though, a fun quick read!

Fun at the potluck.

I don't like how Mike acted in this one but Hannah still rescues the day. Definitely worth the read.

Entertaining

the narrator puts a lot of character into her reading. the characters come alive.
the story is a light hearted mystery. it is easy to follow and entertaining. I often listen to the books when I am driving. it helps to ease traffic tension.

Found the humor to be refreshing

Mixed with real life fashion family issues. I can relate too. Adds a nice twist to the story line.

So-so

Another great book about Hannah Swenson, but I felt this one lacked a bit in the story. Still recommend reading it though to keep up with the story!

Love the books not a fan of the narrator

I wish Joanne would try out new narrators. I love her books so much but may have to stick with reading them versus listening. This narrator is very cumbersome and uninteresting.

Another great book in the series.

Love the development of each character in the series. The acting is wonderful with each character clearly different in sound and personality through out the book and the series. It is hard to stop listening. And I feel a part of their community. I wonder if Hannah will be able to choose from her two suiters. I like them both for her. Can't wait to start the next story.
