Life in tiny Lake Eden, Minnesota, is usually pleasantly uneventful. Lately, though, it seems everyone has more than their fair share of drama--especially the Swensen family. With so much on her plate, Hannah Swensen can hardly find the time to think about her bakery--let alone the town's most recent murder. . . Hannah is nervous about the upcoming trial for her involvement in a tragic accident. She's eager to clear her name once and for all, but her troubles only double when she finds the judge bludgeoned to death with his own gavel--and Hannah is the number one suspect. Now on trial in the court of public opinion, she sets out in search of the culprit and discovers that the judge made more than a few enemies during his career. With time running out, Hannah will have to whip up her most clever recipe yet to find a killer more elusive than the perfect brownie.… (mais)

While I am giving it 4 stars, I had issues with this book. I do love the recipes sprinkled throughout and I usually try at least one of them each time. My biggest gripe (and it really isn't a gripe) is on the very first page. Hannah has been charged with vehicular homicide and she is showing no emotion because of the upcoming wedding of her Mom and Doc. I know that the wedding is exciting, but if I were charged with vehicular homicide I would be showing a LOT more emotion than she did. True once the court date rolled around, she did respond naturally. Another issue I have with this series is the friendship between Mike and Norman when both of them are in love with Hannah. And now there's a third man and all 3 men like to be around each other!
As for the plot Hannah finds the judge who is trying her case murdered in his chambers. Of course, she has to find who did this. ( )

Ever got what you asked for......and then didn't want it anymore?

This book made me feel like that.

For the last several books in the Hannah Swensen series I have been eye-rolling and wishing that Hannah would make up her mind and finally choose between her two boyfriends. Well, in Double Fudge Brownie Murder she does finally make up her mind. But.....her choice seems to be incredibly un-Hannah-like. In fact, Hannah doesn't act like herself for this entire book. As I was reading, I kept thinking that something seems different about this book....Hannah is snarky and quick to offense. The stand-offish "I must be absolutely sure before I make a decision about my love life'' woman makes a huge decision in too short a time. And the whole thing just seemed......off. Not to mention an entire huge plot point that took up the entirety of the previous book, Blackberry Pie Murder, just sort of evaporated. Poof. Gone. Replaced by a rather lame murder mystery that seemed dropped into the hole created by the sudden disappearance of a major plot point.

So yeah.....it's a double edged sword. She made up her mind....but I'm left wondering WTF.

The basics: Hannah goes to Las Vegas for her mother's wedding. Then when she gets back to Lake Eden to face her vehicular homicide trial. But before anything can happen with the court case, the judge is murdered. The gang gathers as usual to help find who killed Judge Colfax.

Hannah does not act like an adult in this book. She hides information from both Mike and Norman just to save herself a confrontation. After 17 books, she does a complete about face and makes a huge decision following a single weekend in Las Vegas. She oversleeps every morning and her sister and business partner end up doing most of the prep work at the bakery.

Now, I will admit that I am glad that she has finally made up her mind. I'm glad Hannah seems to be on her way to behaving a little bit like a 30-something year old woman regarding sex, relationships, love, etc. But I am unimpressed with the continuation of her inability to be truthful and honest with men, and her penchant for stringing along nice guys so that she doesn't have to have difficult conversations.

The writing also seemed off in this one. A huge plot point suddenly gone with a ridiculous explanation. The main character totally doing an abrupt personality change and suddenly becoming swooningly romantic when she has never been that way before. A murder being neatly plopped into the plot about 1/3 of the way through the book like an after thought. It felt like "oh yeah...this is a murder mystery so better kill somebody, and hey....we can get rid of this massive plot problem at the same time.'' And why did an 8 year old child have to explain to Hannah how to use a smart phone?? For heaven's sake, she's 30-something, not 85. And the child, Tracey, doesn't talk like any 8 year old I have ever encountered. She speaks like an adult. And a stuffy adult at that. No 8 year old is going to use the language this little girl was using, not even one raised around very intelligent adults.

I wish I could say I liked this book. But I didn't. For me, it was a dud. I am still a Hannah fan.....I have the other three books in the series and I'm going to read them. I've invested a lot of time in reading 18 books now....not going to stop. But, I sincerely hope that Wedding Cake Murder is much, much better than Double Fudge Brownie Murder. But, if I get to book 21 and the writing hasn't improved......I'm going to have to wave goodbye to Hannah Swensen.

Maybe it's like television series that go on a season too long?? Maybe it's time for Hannah to have a final book and be finished with it.

I'm keeping an open mind....and moving on to the next book. ( )

With Hannah’s court case postponed, Delores and Doc Knight are tying the knot, an event that involves some surprises for Delores. Despite the happy occasion, the court case weighs on Hannah . . . she’s eager to clear her name, but what will happen when the judge is murdered and she’s the prime suspect?

Picking up where “Blackberry Pie Murder” ended, the eighteenth book in this cozy series brings closure to Hannah’s court case, but the resolution of the Norman/Mike issue comes out of left field and doesn’t stand up to close inspection. There’s a lot of cookie-baking, a plethora of cat chases, and not so much about the non-mystery murder that keeps Hannah busy running around town in search of answers. Ross Barton reappears to serve as Doc’s best man, but doesn’t endear himself to readers with his blatant effort to best Norman’s gracious gift.

Readers want to know: How can Hannah be a relatively smart woman in her thirties and need a pre-teen child to teach her the basics of using a smart phone? It truly boggles the mind.

As always, there are many recipes [at the end of the chapters]; unfortunately, oatmeal and dry cereal are back with a vengeance. Readers looking for resolution of the court case will be satisfied with that but are likely to be disappointed with the not-too-surprising, but truly puzzling ending. ( )

This is a cute story, but it is not very difficult to solve the mysteries. I liked all the recipes sprinkled throughout the book. Light mystery series. ( )

Things start of grand as Hannah and her sisters prepare to head for Las Vegas for three days. Doc is 'kidnapping' Delores and they are eloping. The girls will be along to be part of the wedding. (This is the solution to the wedding problem in the previous book.)

A big surprise is in store for Hannah when she finds that Ross Barton, a crush from her college days, has also been invited. Looks like she now has three suitors and needs to make up her mind who will be her one and only.

When they get back to Lake Eden, Hannah still has to face her court date on the deadly traffic accident she had earlier. She is scheduled to go before a judge who is known to be tough. But things take a turn when she finds the judge dead in his chambers and Hannah is considered the prime suspect.

As she investigates she turns up information that is not public about the judge's life, past and present. Seems that he hasn't been popular with a number of people during his time on the bench.

Murder isn't the only thing on her mind...seems she still has to make up her mind: good old steady Norman, exciting Mike or romantic Ross? Who should she choose and should she finally settle down and get married?

More recipes and lots of coffee is being drunk as usual. Another cozy read in this series. ( )
