There has been much discussion over Joanne Fluke s Hannah Swensen series Many have decided to stop reading it because of Joanne s refusal to listen to reader s frustration over the Hannah Mike Norman triangle I feel that Joanne has listened to us the reader as I found much discussion and Hannah giving thought to her relationship with the two men It appears that Norman may be going to have another love interest being introduced into the story line I actually look forward to reading the next book and seeing where this goesAs for the mystery many have commented that it was boring I did not find it so I felt that we got insight into Hannah s past and the reason she may not be able to make a commitment with either Mike or Norman due to her past relationship with Bradford Ramsey It seems that Hannah was truly hurt many years ago and her indecision over her love triangle seems Could Hannah drink any cups of coffee in this book I swear on every page she was dying to drink up a cup of coffee before pouring herself anotheror Michelle had made the coffee and was pouring a cup for Hannahor Hannah was making coffee for late night visitorsor people were having coffee in her cookie shopor Hannah was pouring coffee for AndreaI could go on FOREVER Usually this doesn t bother me but DANG If I read about another cup of coffee I ll go nuts Deep breathWell I was cheering for Norman up to this point but now I m not so sure He has suddenly changed and now Hannah has to deal with his big news Regardless of this overall this was one of the better stories that has come out of this series I enjoyed hearing about Hannah s past but I do have to make a slight complaint Hannah is still uite young and she has some of the most prudish ideas about sex normally I don t complain about his because I am able to Grounding Grounded Theory just enjoy the story without the sex but I felt this plot needed to discuss it a little She hinted that she made bad decisions in her past but when you look at her current views on sex she is unrecognizable to her college self and she isn t that much older She went from someone who had made bad decisions in high school to someone that can barely even say the word sex I understand trying to show how Hannah has grown as a person and is wiser than her college self but there was too much of an extreme here Now I m not asking Hannah to start having sex with her two boyfriends but Iust wish she didn t struggle so much with it She needs to stop being such a scary cat lady for a little bit and embrace her youth and all that goes with itSo having ranted about Hannah s sex life I can continue the rest of the review Overall this was a good book in the series but I m afraid it might be the last book that I like Norman in I ve already dived into the next book to find out what is going to happen with her and Norman but I am worried I really hope things don t get too fuddled up However I will probably see this series to the end because I am enjoying them and they make for a good break between other bigger books The Hannah Swensen series is an outstanding series The characters are ust amazing and the plot is always interesting As always I enjoyed reading this Hannah book It is written by a formula which isn t so bad really Hannah always gets by with too little sleepwhen is The Luscious Los Angeles Times And USA Today BestsellerEarly summer brings plenty of work for baker Hannah Swensen even before Mayor Bascomb's wife drops by The Cookie Jar to place an order for her charity eventfor eleven hundred cookies And Hannah almost flips when her business partner Lisa suggests setting up an apple turnover stand But she places her faith in Lisa and agrees to be a magician's assistant in th.
