If I could give half stars this would be about a 3.5 star book.

The Fluke story was atypical it dragged on at some points and was filled with recipes. Do not get me wrong I like the Hannah Swensen books but Fluke likes to beat a dead horse if you get what I mean. A good percentage of the content was recipes and the story was slow going. It was nice to see Hannah solve a mystery quickly but this in my opinion was the weakest and most boring story of all the stories. The funny thing is out of all three series I usually put Fluke in the middle and Meier in last place. I give this one 2.5 stars

The Levine story was my favorite. Personally out of all three hoeronies Janie is my favorite. Despite the fact a murder takes place her books are always quick paced, light hearted, and funny. I was disappointed not to see Lance or hear from him while Janie was in the tub or read any emails from her parents but the story was cute and funny. A solid 4 star

The Meier story frustrated me. Why does Lucy put up with Bill who can be rather rude and chauvinistic. However, this story seemed to stick closely to a typical Christmas story and had more of a feel good Christmas story to it. It also revealed how Lucy met her Tinkers Cove friends. It was a backstory that really helped me to understand Lucy better. I give this one 3.5 stars.

I have read all of the Janie Austin books but I am working on the Sugar Cookie Murder and just finished the Christmas Cookie murder. So if your not caught up with the series of books there may be some spoilers in the stories.
