Thanksgiving has a way of thawing the frostiest hearts in Lake Eden. But that won't be happening for newlywed Hannah Swensen Barton--not after her husband suddenly disappears . . .   Hannah has felt as bitter as November in Minnesota since Ross vanished without a trace and left their marriage in limbo. Still, she throws herself into a baking frenzy for the sake of pumpkin pie and Thanksgiving-themed treats while endless holiday orders pour into The Cookie Jar. Hannah even introduces a raspberry Danish pastry to the menu, and P.K., her husband's assistant at KCOW-TV, will be one of the first to sample it. But instead of taking a bite, P.K., who is driving Ross's car and using his desk at work, is murdered. Was someone plotting against P.K. all along or did Ross dodge a deadly dose of sweet revenge? Hannah will have to quickly sift through a cornucopia of clues and suspects to stop a killer from bringing another murder to the table . . .… (mer)

Hannah Swensen, owner of the Cookie Jar bakery is eortied about her new husband Ross. Ross hasn't been seen or heard from since a few weeks after their wedding. Where is he? Meanwhile Ross's cameraman at KCOW is taking over Ross's job. He just produced a commercial for the Lake Eden Community Theater, a play being directed by Hannah's younger sister, Michelle. Hannah is busy baking cookies for a refreshment booth at the local Christmas gift show. Michelle gets a call on her phone from PK, who appears drunk behind the wheel of Ross's car. Then he crashes. Hannah needs to discover what is happening. Is her missing husband the actual intended victim?

This was a pretty good story. The dialogue was not as stilted and formal as the last few books. However, I am heartily tired of Hannah's mother. The woman is overly bossy and too intrusive in her daughters' lives. And jumps to conclusions without listening to anything that people say. I'm still curious where Hannah's 2 former male friends stand in Hannah's life. ( )

Hannah Swensen is still reeling from the disappearance of her new husband, Ross Barton. He disappeared without a trace, leaving no explanation. When Ross' former assistant at KCOW-TV, P.K. Alesworth, is killed after eating poisoned candy that was left on Ross' desk, Lake Eden police start to investigate to find out if Ross might have been the intended victim, Hannah and her crew, of course, decide to also investigate. Turns out, there are a lot of discrepancies in the things Ross told Hannah about his past and his family. She is unsure if Ross is in danger and fled to avoid others getting hurt, or if he's just an outright cad. Was Ross involved in something dangerous? Or did the murderer intend to kill P.K.?

Well, first off, I am going to say that I enjoyed this book. Raspberry Danish Murder is the 22nd book in the Hannah Swensen series. I've read them all. And I love the characters! I've even baked many of the recipes from the books. :) When I got my review copy, I started reading immediately....and didn't stop until I finished the book. I waited an entire year to find out what the heck happened to Ross so I devoured this book in one sitting. But, I do have to be honest and say that the feel is still a bit off. The last three books in this series seem to be different. The personality and behavior of some main characters are changed. The writing style and dialogue seem to be amateurish at times. The writing is just not up to Joanne Fluke quality. The books just seem.....different. That's the best word I can come up with. Not bad.....different. My best guess is that the new books might be written by a ghost writer. I can't be sure.....but it's just the feeling that I get. This newest book was tweaking my inner editor. There is some poorly written dialogue, overuse of characters' names and cookie names, too much repetition and over-explanation. For example, several times characters discovered new evidence in the case and went to share that evidence with other characters, repeating the entire story about finding said evidence all over again. Or repeating character names within dialogue when it's obvious which character they are addressing. It doesn't seem like natural conversation. Nobody repeats a friend's name over and over again during a casual discussion. That's just poorly written dialogue. Now....did that damage my enjoyment of the story? No, not really. I feel the book could use another edit and some tweaking before publication....but.....it's Lake Eden, Hannah, and all the characters I love from this series I've been enjoying since the first book came out in 2001......I can overlook some issues.

The mystery mixes the search for information about Ross and the investigation into the murder of P.K. so there is always something going on. There is also a lot of baking and cookie munching, as usual. The crime wrap-up and the ending are a bit abrupt, but the ending does answer a lot of questions. Not all of them, but several important ones. I will be eagerly awaiting the next book!

Is this book the best in the Hannah Swensen series? No. Is it still an enjoyable read? Definitely! I love this series. I read every book, and I watch the Hallmark movies, despite the fact they don't follow the books. And, I will continue to read this series until it reaches the final book.

There are lots of yummy recipes included between chapters in this book, as usual. I definitely feel a danish baking session coming on soon! :) Mmmmm....raspberry danish!! But not all of the recipes are for desserts. There is also pizza dip, asparagus rolls and other non-sweets. :) nom nom!

At the very end of the book, there is an exceprt from Winter Chill, a thriller also written by Joanne Fluke. She has written several suspense/thriller novels. Maybe I can read those novels to tide me over until the next Hannah book comes out!

**I voluntarily read an advanced readers copy of this book from Kensington via NetGalley. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.**

There are a lot of easy and enticing Midwestern-style baking recipes in this one. ( )

I am giving this a very liberal 4 stars. 3.5 is a better fit.
#22 I used to read this series faithfully and then got tired of the love triangle. I recently started reading it again, reading backwards from 24 to 22. I have to say if I had been a regular reader of the series, I would have been upset with #23 after the cliffhanger of this book. #23 was not a continuation of 22.
As always Hannah is in the thick of solving a murder; however, this time the 5 (Mike, Norman, Hannah, Lisa and Michelle) are all working together to solve it. Ross (Hannah's husband) has disappeared and his assistant has been murdered.
I have some questions about why the murderer was where he was for Hannah to *capture* him. It was just too convenient. ( )

This book picks up a bit of the thread that the previous book (Banana Cream Pie Murder) left as the cliff hanger. Hannah's new husband, Ross, has disappeared and Hannah has no idea where or why. Without any answers she has to dodge questions about his being gone.

With Thanksgiving coming up, things really need to get going at The Cookie Jar. The orders for various pumpkin flavoured goodies are rolling in.

With Ross gone, his assistant P.K. is taking on some of the work load. An amiable guy, P.K. is rising to the challenge. He has also gotten a girlfriend and life seems to be going well...until he is murdered. It seems that a box of chocolates that were sent to the offices were poisoned and P.K. was the one who ate them. Question is, where they possibly for Ross and P.K. got them by mistake?

I didn't enjoy this book as much as the previous ones. Hannah seems to have lost her confidence about herself, feeling that maybe she wasn't good enough for Ross and that is why he left. Her friends are still standing by her...even the two guys who still would marry her if she'd give one of them a chance!

There were also a ton of recipes in this book: 29 during the story and 2 more added after the story. At times it seemed more of a cookbook with a little bit of a mystery tossed in.

There were some good twists and turns that popped up and made you wonder if you were coming up with the same suspect.

I know I'll read the books that follow this and hopefully they will be a bit more like previous ones. ( )
