What would have made Double Fudge Brownie Murder better?
An actual plot, and some serious editing.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
What character would you cut from Double Fudge Brownie Murder?
All of them
Any additional comments?
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.

SPOILER ALERT! Hannah is a mess. I understand this has been a long time dream for readers to see Hannah finally settle down but, I never saw this coming. This love triangle is warped. How does the new character (well partially new) suddenly arrive as a serious love interest? It seemed pretty obvious that Norman would be the one she eventually end up with. However, Ross seems to steal the scene. Hannah gives her heart and soul to her old college friend quite quickly. She has been so cautious in the past. It seems quite out of character and convenient for the writer. Then suddenly, Hannah is unsure again?! What a conundrum.
On another note in regards to the mystery, how could Anna be the prime suspect of the murder case? Being bludgeoned to death by a gavel would surely leave blood splatters all over the killer's clothing. Since Hannah was present in finding the body and her attorney met her soon after the crime scene was discovered, wouldn't it be common sense for the witnesses to notice this? Hannah is intelligent, why didn't she think of it? Another convenience. The murder mystery was interesting but not plausible with Hannah as a prime suspect.
I feel that Hannah's cat, Moisha, is a distraction to the story and unnecessary. Adding a mystery to her cat's peculiar ways has no relevance to the plot. It would be impressive to connect it somehow. Other than that, omit it.
However, my disgruntled review does not change my love for the Hannah Swenson series. I will continue reading on in hopes for improvement.
