Coconut Layer Cake Murder

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Joanne Fluke

Narrated By: Suzanne Toren

Date: February 2020

Duration: 8 hours 54 minutes


Bakery owner Hannah Swensen is leaving Lake Eden to help a friend in sunny California. But an unexpected phone call swiftly brings her back to a cold Minnesota winter . . . and murder . . . When Hannah learns that her sister Michelle's boyfriend, Detective Lonnie Murphy, is the prime suspect in a murder case, she goes straight from a movie studio sound stage to the Los Angeles airport. Back in frigid Minnesota, she discovers that proving Lonnie's innocence will be harder than figuring out what went wrong with a recipe. Lonnie remembers only parts of the night he went out to a local bar and ended up driving a very impaired woman home. He knows he helped her to her bedroom, but he doesn't recall anything else until he woke up on her couch the following morning. When he went to the bedroom to check on her, he was shocked to discover she was dead. Hannah doesn't know what to believe-only that exonerating a suspect who can't remember is almost impossible, especially since Lonnie's brother, Detective Rick Murphy, and Lonnie's partner, Chief Detective Mike Kingston, have been taken off the case. Before everything comes crashing down on Lonnie like a heaping slice of coconut layer cake, it'll be up to Hannah to rack up enough clues to toast a flaky killer . . .

    I enjoyed the story, it was picked from the list of free books for members. Not the usual type of Whodunit I listen to. Unfortunately, the embedding of the cookie recipes in the story. Very annoying. In book form, this isn't a problem as you can just turn the pages. Audio, isn't as easy, especially when you are listening when walking or driving. It would be far better to reference the recipe and then place them at the end of the book for those interested in them.

    Really tried to finish this book but couldn’t do it. The recipe dictation was too much and the story was all over the map. Ugh, disappointing

    This book really kept me on my toes! Joanne Fluke never fails me with the twists and turns she throws in there. Not only is the book great on its own, the narrator does a fantastic job of bringing these books to life!

    The story was ok. But reading the recipes was too much. As I listen to books when driving, I was just frustrated-either stop listening altogether or pull over and try to fast forward past the recipe. So I most likely won’t look for more audiobooks by this author. And I have to look for the book now that might explain who Ross is.

    Too many recipes and not enough story
