Cliffhanger. The twenty-first novel in the Hannah Swensen mystery series by Joanne Fluke is titled, Banana Cream Pie Murder. Hannah returns to Lake Eden from her honeymoon to solve a murder. Fans of the series will enjoy the return of a familiar cast of characters, the usual compilation of recipes, and a heavy dose of Minnesota-nice. While the case plodded along a lot until the dramatic climax, Fluke also leaves readers with a cliffhanger, causing fans to anxiously await the next installment. I read these novels for the vicarious eating of sweet deserts on every page. Shame on me for not baking any of these treats.
Rating: Three-star (It’s ok)
