How cute! This is the kind of peaceful mystery series I grew up with, and it's easy to see why Fluke has such a strong following. Each book, set around the crime investigations of a Minnesotan baker and the lives of her family and friends, also contains several recipes that relate to the plot.

An adorable concept. The tough thing about this type of book, admittedly, is that several of the characters are recurring and unlikely to be revealed to be killers (although, having only read 1 of a series of 30, who am I to judge?). So I wasn't that surprised by the killer. But enjoyed the experience. Might return again to this world some day.… (mere)

It took a surprisingly long time to get to the actual murder, and I'm not quite sure there was much detective work actually done. The characters were shallow, and I would emphatically recommend not starting with this one, because it operates under the assumption that you've read the other 19 and little in the way of character development or explanation is provided herein.
A quick vapid read, that I guess got me in the spirit of Christmas?

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!
