Book Critique - Blueberry Muffin Murder (Hannah Swensen Series #3)

For review of all books in this series: Go here.

Stars: 3 / 5

Recommendation: A cozy mystery with a pinch of family dynamics, a twist of love triangle along-side a huge dash of mystery, is a recipe that would not only sweeten your tooth while appeasing your stomach, but also increasing your cravings and keep your grey cells active.

Blueberry Muffin Murder is the third book in the long-running Hannah Swensen Series by Joanne Fluke published in February of 2001. 

I was first introduced to Hannah Swensen in the Murder, She Baked series of TV films made for the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel during 2015 and 2017. Alison Sweeney had portrayed the role of Hannah Swensen in all of the five movies produced so far. And now finally I got to pick one of the books that became the basis for the series of movies, and my review on it.

Normally I prefer to read a series from the beginning, but this time I am starting at #3, as that is what I have at home. If I like this as a book as well, probably I will start it from the beginning, if not just finish the three books I have in this series and put a full stop there. :)

Hannah Swensen is in full-speed geared up to prepare a feast for the Lake Eden's Winter Carnival festival. However, that honor goes to celebrity chef, Connie "Mac" MacIntyre, the "Cooking Sweetheart" of America. But someone murders Connie Mac and now it's up to Hannah to solve case before the cops do it, so she can get her bakery back before she gets bankrupted in the process.
