Lemon Meringue Pie Murder - Hannah Swensen, Bk 4

In this 4th Hannah Swenson mystery, Hannahs mother finds a body in the basement of a home that is set to be demolished. Things get a little sticky when one of Hannahs Lemon Meringue Pies is found on the table with two slices missing with very little evidence of who was sharing the pie with Rhonda when she was murdered. The high school principal, guidance counselor and even the local reverend seem likely suspects.

Once again the residents of Lake Eden, Minnesota arent sure if Hannah is the culprit or the only one that can solve the crime. Seems drug store clerk Ronda Scharf had a couple of secrets of her own. Namely a bank robbery and missing money that has just started to show up.

And now Hannah, with the help of her two sometimes boyfriends, Mike and Norman, set out to solve the murder. Once again the book seems more drawn around the romantic antics of Hannah, Mike and Norman with the mystery plot definitely playing second fiddle.

For me this book was a little bit slower moving and not a whole lot going on as compared to the previous books in the series. Andrea is still ditzy with moments of brilliance, Mom is still annoying and Hannah who seems to be the smart reliable character cant get her personal life together, which for me is starting to wear thin. Not as fun as the love triangle in the Evanovich books, but an interesting break from hardboiled mysteries.

I just love these books. They are quick to read and I take them to appointments and read a few pages before turning in at night. I have read about 6 of them already and as soon as I get more credits I will look for more of them to order. If you like some light reading this is it.

There are also yummy cookie recipes in each book. I have made 10 of them so far and my grandchildren love each and every one of them. Can't wait for Christmas to use all my new cookie recipes to fill my cookie baskets.

Another cute entry in the Hannah Swensen series of cozy mysteries. Despite all her good intentions Hannah is once agin involved in a mystery when her mother finds the body of Rhonda Scharf in the basement of Hannah's boyfriend Norman's new home. Lots of cookie recipes and family gatherings where lots of talking goes on, taking up far more of the story than the actual mystery. Still if you like this kind of book it's a nice break, although I find the two boyfriend sub-plot annoying.

Another entertaining Hannah Swensen mystery, although I did guess who did it pretty early on. Looking forward to the next one!
