Kurzbeschreibung

1. Februar 2005 Hannah Swensen Mysteries
Bakery owner Hannah Swensen just can't keep her hands out of the batter when murder stirs things up in Lake Eden, Minnesota, leaving the sheriff dead, a deputy accused, and a killer on the loose...For Hannah, life seems to be lacking a certain flavour lately. Maybe it's the local sheriff's election that's got her down. For years, Sheriff Grant's been the iron hand in town. But now, Hannah's brother-in-law Bill is giving the old blowhard the fight of his long, dubious career - and Grant's not taking it well, especially once the polls show Bill pulling ahead. But before anyone can taste victory, things go sour. While Hannah's emptying the trash, she makes a very unappetizing discovery: Sheriff Grant's body in the Dumpster behind the high school where she's teaching her cooking class. And as if that weren't bad enough, the poor man still has fudge frosting on his shirt from one of her cupcakes. The number one - and only - suspect is Bill, but Hannah's not swallowing it. Plenty of people had reason to hate Sheriff Grant. Soon, Hannah's dishing up scandalous secrets, steaming hot betrayals, and enough intrigue to keep the gossip mill at The Cookie Jar going through several pots of decaf. And the closer Hannah gets to the truth, the closer she gets to smoking out a murderer with a very nasty recipe for silencing people...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Nette Atmosphäre und leckere Rezepte 5. März 2005
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Mittlerweile warte ich immer schon sehnsüchtig auf die neuen Krimis von Joanna Fluke, und ich wurde auch diesmal nicht enttäuscht. Ihre Romane haben etwas tröstliches. Das Leben in der Kleinstadt, die einzelnen Charaktere, alles wird sehr stimmig dargestellt. Und obwohl es so gemütlich ist, gibt es nicht nur heile Welt. Und es wird doch auch wieder spannend. Hannah forscht mal wieder, um ihrem Schwager aus der Patsche zu helfen. Daneben hat sie Rücksichten auf ihre verschiedenen Familienmitglieder zu nehmen. Und ihre Entscheidung zwischen 2 Männern steht auch noch aus.
Daneben gibt es wieder leckere Rezepte, von denen ich bestimmt mal welche ausprobieren werde. Also eine sehr nette Lektüre insbesondere für "dunkle" Zeiten.
Ich freue mich schon auf das nächste Buch von Joanna Fluke.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I love Hannah Swensen 25. Juni 2013
Von jess0407
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Die Hannah Swensen Mysteries sind einfach nur gut! Eine perfekte Mischung aus Witz, Romantik und natürlich Spannung! Oft weiß man bis zum Schluss nicht so Recht, wer der Mörder ist, verdächtigt die falschen Personen.
Was mir besonders gefällt, ist die Beschreibung von Lake Eden und deren Bewohner. Obwohl man noch nie dort war, hat man das Gefühl, bald jeden Winkel der Stadt zu kennen und die Bewohner werden zu Freunden und Bekannten!
Zum Inhalt des Buches muss hier nichts mehr gesagt werden, auch der Klappentext gibt schon viel Preis.
Auch auf Englisch sind die Bücher gut zu verstehen.
Die Rezepte habe ich leider noch nicht ausprobiert.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Einfach nur nervig 26. Oktober 2009
Format:Taschenbuch
Um es mal vorweg zu sagen: Es gibt deutlich bessere Krimis im Cozy-Genre und auch bessere mit Rezepten, egal, was manche professionelle Reviewer behaupten.
Das ist nicht das erste Hannah Swensen Buch, das ich lese und es wird auch nicht das letzte sein (wenn man nicht zu viel erwartet, sind sie nämlich in der Regel recht entspannend), aber dieser Band treibt die in den bisherigen Bänden immer vorhandenen Schwächen doch zu sehr auf die Spitze, um noch angenehm zu sein. Der Handlung gebe ich demnach auch nur einen Punkt, die restlichen beiden sind für die wie immer tollen Rezepte, die ich nur weiterempfehlen kann.
Inhaltlich nervt hier aber zu vieles: Hannahs ständiges Getue, wie gut erzogen sie doch ist, während sie keine Probleme damit hat, innerhalb einer guten Stunde zwischen zwei Männern zu wechseln, die andauernd betonte Intelligenz der Heldin, die dann leider doch immer nicht selbst auf die meisten Dinge kommt und auch die allzuoft wiederholten Sätze. Dazu kommt, dass Hannah sich das unverschämte Benehmen der männlichen Personen widerspruchslos gefallen lässt und immer wieder auf den Ober-Macho reinfällt, obwohl sie eigentlich weiß, dass er nicht gut für sie ist und sie sich selbst als emanzipierte Frau sieht, haha!
Was Krimiliebhaber aber am meisten stören dürfte, ist, dass man schon recht früh weiß, wer der Mörder ist. Das ging mir zwar bei allen Büchern der Serie so, aber damit kann ich an sich erstmal leben. Dass ich dann aber auch gleich noch wusste, wie der Mörder Hannah am Ende beseitigen will, ging doch etwas zu weit. (Meiner Schwester ging es übrigens genauso, es liegt also nicht nur an mir.)
Definitiv ein Buch, das ich nicht nochmal lesen werde. Es wird sein Regalbrett mit Sicherheit nur noch verlassen, wenn ich ein Rezept suche. Vielleicht sollte Ms. Fluke doch lieber Kochbücher schreiben ...

4.0 von 5 Sternen mord in amerikanischer kleinstadt 7. Juni 2007
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Die sogenannten cozy mysteries zeichnen sich dadurch aus, dass sie es an Brutalität fehlen lassen. Keine blutigen Details und gemordet werden eher Protagonisten, die einem wenig sympathisch sind. Das Kleinstadtleben wird nett beschrieben und man freundet sich mit den Charakteren an. Ein Minuspunkt von mir, weil ich es eher unwahrscheinlich finde, dasss zwei Männer um eine Frau buhlen und gar nicht aufeinander eifersüchtig sind. Trotzdem nette Lektüre und der absolute Bonus sind die tollen Rezepte.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Politics Get Deadly 16. März 2004
Von Mark Baker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Hannah's life is very full. Not only is she juggling the demands of running The Cookie Jar, but her brother-in-law is running for sheriff in a very tight race and she's trying to organize the recipes for the Lake Eden cookbook. One night, as she's taking the trash out after her potluck cooking class (a convenient way to test all the recipes to make sure they're right before the book goes to print), she finds the body of Sheriff Grant in the dumpster. Now Bill is suspended from work because he's a suspect, and Hannah must clear him by finding the killer before he drives the very pregnant Andrea crazy cleaning out their house. This also adds major complications to Hannah's relationship with Bill's partner Mike. Meanwhile, her mother is acting strangely, and she needs to get her cat to eat his senior cat food. And she's searching for the missing ingredient in Mrs. Koester's fudge cupcake recipe so it can make the book. Can Hannah juggle all these competing demands?
Needless to say, there's never a dull moment in this book. There are a few times when the murder investigation seems to stall briefly, but the other sub-plots take up the slack. Frankly, I hardly noticed because there is so much else happening. The mystery does progress well, with an ending I figured out a little before Hannah, but not by much. All the characters we've come to love are back, and it's definitely a wonderful visit with old friends. This book contains 10 delicious sounding recipes. (A word about the title recipe. The first edition contains an error. It should read 1 1/2 teaspoons baking POWDER not baking soda. This will be fixed in all future editions.)
Is it possible to get the warm fuzzies from a murder mystery? If so, this is the series to do it. If you like your murder served cozy, look no further then this fun series.

4.0 von 5 Sternen What Is The Secret Ingrediant 17. Juni 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Hannah Swenson, owner of the Cookie Jar in Lake Eden, Minnesota is having a couple of problems.
First there's the sheriff's race, where Bill, her sister Andrea's husband is running against Sheriff Grant.
Secondly, she's attempting to put together a cookbook filled with Lake Eden's favorite Potluck dishes. And the late Mrs. Koester's fudge cupcakes are proving a problem.
Beatrice Koester's very anxious to have the cupcake in the cookbook, for her husband Ted's sake. He & mom were very close. Unfortunately, the recipe includes 1/2 cup of secret ingredient. It's up to Hannah and her partner Lisa to try and find out what that ingredient is.
So it trial and error as they bake and bake. Hannah's first batch is taking to the Potluck Cooking class that she's teaching at the local community college. (They're testing all the recipes.)
Sheriff Grant is at the college, and Hannah gives him a couple of cupcakes to try out. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to give a review as when she's putting out the trash, Hannah finds the Sheriff's body in the dumpster.
Who'd want the sheriff dead? Did it have anything to do with the election? What about his son's death in a car accident a couple years ago? Or maybe it was the "big case" he always found and solved just before elections.
Things get even worse, when Bill is taken off duty by acting Sheriff Mike Kingston,(Hannah's Boyfriend), as a possible suspect.
Hannah and Andrea have to work hard to find who the killer is, before Bill gets arrested.
Highlights:
Hannah's relationship with her two boyfriends, Mike the Cop and Norman the Dentist. Both great guys, and it's unusual for there to be two boyfriends in a series.
Family and Friends. This series has wonderful relationships between Hannah and her family and her friends. There are a lot of returning characters in each book, you really get to know them well.
Murder Victim - Another unusual thing to this series, is that the murder victim is often someone who has appeared in previous books. Sheriff Grant has been in the books from the first, so it was surprising to have him killed off.
Hannah's cat Moishe. He almost makes me a cat lover.
Great Recipe's.
Lowlights:
Guessing the killer was too easy. I knew who did it very early, but not why, so it was still an enjoyable mystery.
Hannah acting totally stupid at the end of the book. There was no reason for any of it to happen if she had done things a little smarter.
This is a great series. I've already pre-ordered the next one, The Sugar Cookie Murder.
If you're looking for another good series to read while you're waiting, I found a one by Victoria Pade, there's only two books, Divorce Can Be Murder & Dating Can Be Deadly, but they're both very funny along with a good mystery.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Improvement Needed 29. Dezember 2007
Von A. P. Fry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Spoiler alert!

The other reviewers have given a good "recipe" of the plot so I won't do the same. Hannah Swenson can be entertaining and I've copied down some good recipes. But for someone who is supposed to be smart, Hannah Swenson can be incredibly stupid. She locates the murder weapon, a tire iron, is left alone with it for an apparently lengthy period of time while waiting for the murderer to return (knowing he's the murderer), but instead of putting it in her vehicle and taking off, she tries to buy it from the murderer. When the murderer realizes he's been outed, she runs off into the salvage yard with--not her car keys--but a bag of cupcakes.

Then, while hiding in a junk car, listening for the sound of footsteps on gravel to indicate the approach of the murderer, she somehow misses the sound of heavy equipment approaching. It's ridiculous that someone can miss the sound of car moving equipment and then be completely stunned when the car mover scoops up the car in which she's hiding. Had she stumbled across a tree root, it would have been a perfect rendition of the incredibly dumb girl in horror movies that everyone in the audience yells at not to be so dumb.

Then, when Mike the handsome cop arrives and stands immediately below her elevated hiding place, he somehow misses the leather jacket that floats down from above (which Hannah tossed down to get his attention), gets hit in the head with a fudge cupcake but doesn't look up and only becomes suspicious that something is afoot when he gets bonked with a second cupcake. Honestly! How dumb and blind can one supposedly brilliant cop be?

And Hannah's approach to romance needs serious work. She's blindly attracted to Mike for his looks and sex appeal, even though he treats her like a silly girl, cautioning her in a clearly paternalistic and condescending manner (more than once) to "let the professionals handle it," the murder investigation, which he has done in each and every book. The only thing missing was a pat on the head. A dozen pages later, Hannah's mooning about, wondering if Mike will propose, despite the fact that she knows he's condescending, knows he's still mourning his deceased wife, knows he's not interested in commitment.

Hannah is supposed to be level-headed, no-nonsense and bright. What she apparently really embodies are all the old cliches about women--willing to overlook the handsome man's personality flaws, dreaming about proposals of marriage, getting into tight corners (in this case, a junk car about to be squashed to bits in a junk yard car crusher) because she just doesn't think logically and relying upon the big strong men in her life to rescue her. It would be different if Hannah recognized the dichotomies of her life; at least there would some depth there, but she doesn't. The characters in this series simply are not progressing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another Delectable Novel 15. August 2005
Kinder-Rezension - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Finishing Lemon Meringue Pie Murder, I could not wait to start Fudge Cupcake Murder. How could anyone believe Ms. Fluke would disappoint? It's nearing Halloween in the small town of Lake Eden, Minnesota, Hannah's niece Tracy can't wait for trick-or-treating, and Hannah is teaching a fun cooking class at the Lake Eden school. Hannah is compiling an amount of recipes for the Lake Eden Cookbook, and receives a recipe for fudge cupcakec from Beatrice Koester, but then learns that Beatrice's mother-in-law wouldn't give up the secret ingredient that makes the cupcakes fruity and thick, and Hannah must experiment with other ingredients. After her cooking class, Hannah tries making cupcake test batches, and gives one to Sheriff Grant to try, and when Hannah is about to leave, she discovers Sheriff Grant's body in the dumpster, his shirt smeared with chocolate frosting from one of Hannah's cupcakes. And if that wasn't bad enough, Andrea's husband Bill is accused of murder Grant so he could become the new sheriff! Hannah vehemently investigates the murder once again to clear her innocent brother-in-law. Joanne Fluke has written another great Hannah Swensen mystery with funny characters, a stumping murder, and subtle clues, along with the hilarious subplot of Hannah's attempts to make Moishe, Hannah's lovable tomcat, eat his newly needed Senior Cat Food. Read this book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dangerous book if you're dieting... 23. Februar 2004
Von Ruth A. Caldwell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Another winner in the Cookie Jar mystery series. Hannah has her hands full! She's still in a quandry over two handsome beaus; her sister is still pregnant; her kitty, Moishe, is not happy; her Mother is, as usual, critical and has a secret; Mike, her brother-in-law, is suspect #1 in the murder of the Sheriff that happens to be who Mike is running against during a close election. Said Sheriff just ate one of Hannah's cupcakes minutes before he's murdered and thrown into a dumpster.
Now, all she has to do is get her kitty to eat again, slueth with her expectant sister to get Mike off "suspension pending investigation"; figure out what her Mother is hiding; bake for her thriving business at the cookie jar while she tests recipes and puts together a Lake Eden Cook Book whose deadline has been pushed forward by three months!
The recipes are excellent and all you cookie party gals will find the new Hannah Banana cookie delicious!
Now, don't read the recipes first; she gives a really good clue in the beginning, as to the secret ingredient missing from the Fudge cupcake recipe entry and it was fun to figure it out with her.
