Life in Lake Eden, Minnesota, is usually pleasantly uneventful. Lately, though, it seems everyone has more than their fair share of drama to manage. With so much on her plate, Hannah Swensen can barely 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. Now Hannah is the number-one suspect.
As she sets out in search of the culprit, she 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....

Terrible. just terrible
An actual plot, and some serious editing.
All of them
I've read or listened to all the other books in this series so I knew what to expect. So my expectations were already low. I just needed something easy to listen to and usually enjoy these enough to keep up with the series. This book was terrible. No plot. Boring. The characters blabber on and on with no purpose...worse than usual, that is. I may be done with this series if this is how they are going to go now.

What?? Don't know if I can force myself to finish
Maybe, if this one turns around and become enjoyable.
Snooty, put-on voices don't really work for me.
This story drags and makes me want to just ditch it and choose another book from my library. Very disappointing. I love light reads, but this is just pedantic. And what era is it supposed to be set in? It seems to verge on being a 1940's Deep South kind of thing, but I think it's actually supposed to be current day (2015). It seems prudish and very young. Am I reading a young adult book by accident? The author goes on at length about things. "Who wants dessert?" "Oh I do enjoy a little treat after supper!" "They have German chocolate cake!" said The Mom. "German chocolate cake?!" said Whoever. "I do like German chocolate cake!" "They also have cupcakes - look at all the cupcakes they have" exclaimed Whoever, pointing to the full page in her menu. "Yes, but you know what kind I'm sure they DON'T have??" explained Some Other Person? "Angel food cake..." blah blah blah. I'm almost two hours in and I don't know if I'll finish it.
