The Blueberry Muffin Murder by Joanne Fluke is a 2003 Kensington publication.

This is the third installment in the Hannah Swensen series, and I think maybe I’m finally beginning to settle into it.

Gearing up for the Lake Eden Winter Carnival, Hannah is super busy doing her part- but the town is all abuzz over the celebrity lifestyle guru, Connie Mac, stepping in to bake the Carnival cake. But Hannah thinks the woman is a fake, entitled, uncharitable and difficult. Still, it comes as a big shock when she finds Connie Mac dead in her bakery….

I’ll admit I knew almost from the beginning who the murderer probably was- but I had no clue what the motive or connection might be- so it was still a mystery and a good one at that. I am starting to warm up to Hannah now that I understand her better and enjoy her little ‘love triangle’ musings, her cat, her sister, and her annoying mother, too- all of which is quite entertaining.

Overall, this was a quick, fun cozy- and I’m starting to enjoy the series more and more as I go!

Candy for Christmas
Hannah Swensen, Book 1.5

I Picked Up This Book Because: Continue the series.

Media Type: Paperback
Source: CC Public Library
Dates Read: 2/25/24 - 3/10/24
Stars: 4 Stars

The Characters:

Hannah Swensen
Candy “R”
Norman, Andrea, Bill, Lisa

The Story:

I am not mature enough for this title to not sound dirty. The fact that it’s a very sweet story that reunites a family is crazy. It was short and sweet with like 5 recipes. This is the first paperback I’ve picked up in forever and I have mixed feelings about that.

I liked all three short stories. The Hannah Swensen story was my favorite, only because I knew all of the characters already. I would gladly read more of the books in Leslie Meier and Laura Levine's mystery series.
