My friend said that this was the worst book she ever read. I am not going to try to dissuade her. At first I thought the book was written for children as the writing was so simplified, but alas it seems to be written for adults after all.

If that was not distracting enough, the book includes recipes in almost every chapter. So a typical chapter is structured like this: She walked into the room. It was a good room. It made her happy. She decided to bake in the room that brought her so much happiness. She preheated the oven to 400 degrees and got out the flour...

It then will then go through each step of making whatever she is baking and somewhere in there add a paragraph or two of storyline. Then at the end of the chapter is the actual recipe.

Goodreads says the book is 292 pgs if you take out all the baking and recipes I doubt its much more than 50 pages. I think I would encourage a friend to skip reading even that version of the book. ( )

My husband saw me reading this book last night and stopped, standing in front of me with a grin on his face. "Hey, are those the books you read that have recipes in them?'' I nodded, and he walked off still grinning. "I guess this means you are baking apple turnovers this weekend!''

Sure, why not! :)

Apple Turnover Murder is the 13th book in the Hannah Swensen series. I like this cozy mystery series. It's light reading, sprinkled with recipes throughout the story. I like to "visit'' Hannah in the evening with a cup of hot tea, my dog in my lap, fuzzy socks keeping my toes warm....just a nice, light before-bed read. The plots are never too complex, and the books are usually quick reads at under 300 pages. Cozy mysteries offer a bit of escape......light reading, some humor, a cute subplot or two, quirky characters, and a murder mystery thrown in. No sex. No cussing. No spurting blood. Sort of like watching a Hallmark Channel movie (which is perfect because Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Channel has made 4 of the Hannah Swensen books into made-for-television movies).

Sometimes I just need a story where I like the characters and the plot is just light and easy to read. Comfort reading. It's a lot like comfort food for avid readers.

I have to admit I didn't like Apple Turnover Murder as much as I've liked the other books in this series. This book seemed a bit too simplistic, or maybe like it was rushed? I'm not sure exactly. Something was just a bit off for me this time. Hannah is baking a lot of goodies for a large charity gala in Lake Eden, MN. More than 1000 cookies and just about as many apple turnovers are just too much for her to tackle alone, so she gets her business partner, Lisa, and her mother-in-law to help her out. Hannah is, as usual, mulling over her relationship difficulties and losing sleep from overwork and stress. Add in former boyfriend, Professor Bradford Ramsey deciding to be a lecherous jerk, and Hannah definitely has a lot going on. Just when she thinks nothing else could possibly go wrong, Hannah discovers Bradford Ramsey dead backstage at the gala talent show. What makes it worse is that she had just told the man she wanted to kill him. Hannah is back on the case to discover who killed the promiscuous professor.

The mystery portion of the plot seemed hurried this time. The investigation was lackluster, and the ending just seemed staged to me. The interaction between the main characters was obviously building up to something....but the reveal was a bit ho-hum for me. I still enjoyed the book...don't get me wrong. This particular book just seemed a bit meh to me.

I still love Hannah Swensen. And this book was a good build for what I think it going to happen in the rest of the series. I'm forging ahead with the rest of the series. Not every book in a long series can be monumentally exciting. And this is entirely my own opinion. To some, this book may have been awesome. I think I'm just ready for this series to head in a different direction.....the love triangle sub-plot was getting old five books ago. I think there might be light showing at the end of the tunnel though......

The recipes in Apple Turnover Murder sound SO yummy!! I think I need to bake this weekend! My husband excepts apple turnovers!

There are 20 books in the Hannah Swensen series, with #21 Banana Cream Pie Murder coming out February 28th!

As soon as I catch up with Hannah, I think I'm going to check out some of Joanne Fluke's suspense novels. I have heard good things about them. I'm curious to see what her non-cozy books are like! The cover-art looks delightfully creepy on her suspense books! I can't wait to try a couple of them!

There is no better series to pick up when you're trying to complete a challenge that either requires you to read a book with a specific color cover, or something with dessert/food on the cover. Hannah Swensen is the owner of The Cookie Jar in Lake Eden, Minnesota. She bakes cookies and desserts and for some reason, practically always discovers a dead body at some event she is catering.

In this book, Hannah discovers Dr. Bradley Ramsey, dead backstage at a charity talent show clutching one of her apple turnovers. Since Bradley played fast and loose with her during her graduate days and has also been involved with her sister, Michelle, she knows she needs to step in and help find his killer. While helping love interest, Mike, with his investigation, she discovers Bradley left a trail of heart broken women so there are plenty of suspects to choose from.

Fans of the series will be happy to see the plot formula is similar to the others of the series and that Hannah's romantic triangle is still going strong. I hope at some point Hannah will finally make up her mind between Mike and Norman. The author populates her stories with warm and friendly characters and even includes non-human characters like Moishe, Hannah's persnickety cat. The very best part of the books are the delicious recipes included at the end of the chapters. Overall, a nice cozy mystery that you will probably enjoy if cozy mysteries are among your favorites.

Synopsis: 'Early summer brings plenty of work for baker Hannah Swensen, even before Mayor Bascomb's wife drops by The Cookie Jar to place an order for her charity event....for eleven-hundred cookies! And Hannah almost flips when her business partner, Lisa, suggests setting up an apple turnover stand. But she places her faith in Lisa and agrees to be a magician's assistant in the fundraiser's talent show....The only snag is the show's host, college professor Bradford Ramsey. Hannah and her sister, Michelle, each had unfortunate romances with Ramsey, and when the cad comes sniffing around between acts, Hannah tells him off. But when the curtain doesn't go up, she discovers Ramsey backstage--dead, with a turnover in his hand. Now Hannah must find a killer who's flakier than puff pastry and far more dangerous..'
Review: This is a cute cozy mystery that has recipes embedded in it. If you don't figure out 'who done it' by the end of the chapter after the murder, you're not paying attention. ( )

Summer’s about to arrive in Lake Eden and Hannah’s committed The Cookie Jar to providing eleven hundred cookies for a charity event organized by Mayor Bascomb’s wife, Stephanie. In addition, Lisa’s convinced Hannah to set up an apple turnover stand and all that baking is keeping the Cookie Jar staff hopping.

The downside of the whole charity event is community college professor Bradford Ramsey serving as host. When Hannah discovers the smarmy professor’s dead body, she’s determined to figure out who brought about the professor’s end. But will she be putting herself in harm’s way?

All the usual characters are around for this story, again filled with Hannah’s indecision between Norman and Mike. This has dragged out over far too many books and has become a detriment to the telling of the tale. Surely, no one in Eden Lake is missing the smarmy professor, with his long trail of broken hearts, as he blithely moves from one affair to the next, to the next, to the next, ad nauseum. [It does make it easy for readers to pick out the murder victim before the crime occurs, though.]

Hannah has developed an annoying, self-centered, condescending attitude, which is not becoming for our intrepid heroine. She needs to stop whining, stop correcting everyone’s grammar, make some grown-up choices, and, if she’s unhappy about her appearance, do something about it. As for the coffee drinking, readers who drink just as much coffee as Hannah accept this as standard behavior and find no fault here.

One has to wonder why Mike and Norman are both still hanging around, waiting for Hannah to feel like she’s ready for a committed relationship. Of course, there’s the free meals, but now that Norman’s acting weird, is there trouble brewing in Hannah’s little triangle? And, sad to say, there’s the ubiquitous cliffhanger, just to make sure readers grab the next book to find out what happens.

However, like the other books in this series, this thirteenth book is a quick read with characters readers care about, a not-too-complicated mystery to solve, and some recipes guaranteed to make readers head for the kitchen to pull out the baking bans. [And maybe, someday, if readers are truly lucky, there will be a whole book filled with recipes and NONE of them will include oatmeal or dry cereal or marshmallows.] ( )
