Plum Pudding Murder (Hannah Swensen Series #12)

It's Christmastime in Lake Eden, MN, and Hannah is baking up a storm. There are several mysteries afoot - a friend missing from her job; Norman's mom lying, canceling plans and being evasive; and the murder of a sneaky and dishonest business man. Hannah and friends are up to sorting out all these mysteries, but one of them just might get Hannah killed.

This was a good mystery, and I enjoyed figuring out the solution before the characters did. I love the characters in this series and watching the relationships evolve. One thread of the story only seemed to be there to set up something for the future, which is pretty clever plotting by the author. My only complaint is the love triangle. One of Hannah's suitors can really be a selfish, thoughtless guy, and I don't see why he is still in the picture. But I keep coming back for more in the next book to see if he'll redeem himself or if Hannah will finally choose the steady, sweet, thoughtful one who always puts her first.

4 out of 5 stars
