Lemon Meringue Pie Murder

Lemon Meringue Pie Murder (Hannah Swensen, #4)Lemon Meringue Pie Murder 
by Joanne Fluke
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“On the one hand, it was nice to have someone who was concerned about you. But on the other hand, you couldn’t ever feel truly independent. Marriage was a trade-off. You gave up some things and you gained others.” ― Joanne Fluke, Lemon Meringue Pie Murder
This is #4 in the Hannah Swensen series. Like the earlier installments it was a charming story about a woman who owns a cookie shop in a small Minnesota town and gets herself mixed up in a murder investigation while juggling 2 romantic interests and a mom who never misses an opportunity to point out that she ought to get married before she gets any older. She also spends a lot of time feeding her cat and drinks more coffee than anyone I have ever seen. These are fun, fluffy, novels with recipes mixed in. The orange cookies sounded delicious. 
I am counting this book toward the What's in a Name Challenge as a book with a fruit in the title. 


  1. Oh I really should get back to these. I think I read the first two. I loved the baked goods; like you said a fun, light cozy read. Thanks for reminding me of these books.

  2. I like the quote from the book- sounds like a light simple book

  3. I did enjoy a number of the books in this series, and especially the recipes, but I gave up when I just couldn't take the love triangle anymore!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
