Raspberry Danish Murder (Hannah Swensen #22) Reviews
Joanne Fluke is back once again with another edition of her Hannah Swensen Mystery series. Raspberry Danish Murder is the twenty-fourth book in this series. Hannah Swensen Barton is still trying to make sense of the disappearance of her husband, Ross Barton, two weeks ago. Taking with him only the keys to their condo and no explanation as to why or where he was going, Hannah is worried, confused, heart-broken, and is looking for answers with the help from her friends, Mike and Norman. It’s close ...more
Raspberry Danish Murder has brought back the Hannah we've all come to love.
Still trying to come to terms with the disappearance of her husband Ross, Hannah leaves no stone unturned as she continues to search for answers.
With the sudden death of her husband's assistant, Hannah has the feeling that something just isn't right.
Of course Hannah has the help of her best friends Mike and Norman, and her sister Michelle is back as well.
It was nice having Hannah back as her usual self even though she was ...more
This series jumped the shark awhile back and I just haven't been able to cut the cord though I was seriously going to stop after the last book and the surprise ending. However, curiosity got the best of me. Raspberry begins where #21 left off, but any active investigation by Hannah doesn't really begin until about the half way mark...way too late for a mystery. Prior (and after) we get WAY too much cookie and food talk. Take that away and the book would be a good 60% shorter.
Hannah has completel ...more
Say what you will about these books, but the cliffhanger endings are what saves them. Somehow I have got to know how this Hannah-Mike-Norman-Ross love "square" ends!!
I read most of this all in one morning, and... as usual ...there were things that bugged me. Right out of the gate (p. 3), Michelle says, "They were sitting right on top of my warmest winter scarf." Who says things like that? What is she, twelve?? Some of the language in these books seems stinted and mechanical -- like no one talks ...more
I absolutely loved this book! The ending was just what I was hoping for! I'm trying not to give anything away but even the book descriptions of these last few books in this series are sort of spoiler-like if all a person has read has been the first books. I had only read books in the beginning but I knew what was coming and I was just curious to find out! So I didn't mind knowing. Now I can go back and read the rest of the series.
If you have not read any later books in this series (from about 18 ...more

I was very excited to read Raspberry Danish Murder (largely because of the title, not going to lie), but, ultimately, I couldn't plow through it and ended up abandoning it. You may be wondering: what could make a COZY MYSTERY so hard to read? After all, this genre is renowned for being very accessible, and how could a book with the words 'raspberry' and 'Danish' in the title be anything but?
Well, first and foremost, the author unleashes a positive BARRAGE of names on the reader. By the time I go ...more
