ARC honest review for Kensington Books via NetGalley.
I thought the first third of the book was slow, mainly because it dealt mostly with the wedding planning and the start of the tv competition. I was beginning to wonder if there was ever going to be a murder in this book!. But after the murder had happened the book started to picked up its pace.
I loved the recipes (and plan on trying some of them out…I just have to find the equivalent ingredients in the UK !), and the way they were delivered…with all the non-technical terms! 😀
I really enjoyed the book, even if it did get a bit too mushy in parts! And plan on reading more of the Hannah Swensen mysteries.
Everyone in Lake Eden, Minnesota, may have had their doubts, but at long last, Hannah Swensen is getting married!
Hannah is thrilled to be marrying Ross Barton, her college crush. And her excitement only grows when she learns he’ll be able to join her on her trip to New York City for the Food Channel’s dessert chef contest. She’s especially nervous about facing Alain Duquesne, a celebrity chef with a nasty reputation. But before he can tear into Hannah’s layer cake, she finds him stabbed to death on the show’s kitchen set. Out of the oven, as the saying goes, and into the bright lights of Broadway, as Hannah tries to solve a mystery with more layers than a five-tiered wedding cake…
