Publisher's Summary

A romantic seven-day cruise is the perfect start to bakery owner Hannah Swensen's marriage. However, with a murder mystery heating up in Lake Eden, Minnesota, it seems the newlywed's homecoming won't be as sweet as she anticipated....

After an extravagant honeymoon, Hannah's eager to settle down in Lake Eden and turn domestic daydreams into reality. But when her mother's neighbor is discovered murdered in the condo downstairs, reality becomes a nightmarish investigation. Victoria Bascomb, once a renowned stage actress, was active in the theater community during her brief appearance in town...and made throngs of enemies along the way. Did a random intruder murder the woman, as police claim, or was a deadlier scheme at play? As Hannah peels through countless suspects and some new troubles of her own, solving this crime - and living to tell about it - might prove trickier than mixing up the ultimate banana cream pie.

    "Disappointed"

    Not author's best. Not a fan of Ross character and changes in Hannah. Guess cliffhanger a way to get us to buy next book not sure I will.

    "If it ain't broke don't fix it!"
    What would have made Banana Cream Pie Murder better?

    Why is it seemingly impossible for writers to allow a main character to have a little happiness. Being married doesn't preclude having a life, but for authors, it seems to be the kiss of death. A very unsatisfactory ending all the way around. My advise, give this one a pass - unless you're a glutton for punishment and love to see the main character in unnessary anguish. AWFUL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Has Banana Cream Pie Murder turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, just books in this series.


    Have you listened to any of Suzanne Toren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Suzanne Toren is a terrific reader. The content is not her fault.


    What character would you cut from Banana Cream Pie Murder?

    Ross Barton. He should have been left out of all the books if this was going to be his end.


    Any additional comments?

    You can't unring a bell. So you can't go back and pretend Ross never existed. So, now the reader is left caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place. And that is a very uncomfortable place indeed. Shame, shame, Joanne Fluke.

    He is a terrible addition. He needs to be the murder victim, the murder, just get gone.

    "Disappointment"

    Possibly the most boring of all her books and a great disappointment. Ross is a loser. Bad ending.

    "Very light and slow read."

    I'm losing faith in Hannah Swensen and at one time I could hardly wait for them to come out. There was no meat to this story at all - just a lot of fluff with recipes. If you took out the recipe readings the book would hardly qualify for a short story. Is anybody besides me so tired of having to listen to recipes interrupt the story (lame though it is) every time you turn around? It's not good listening ....it's boring me to tears. Wake up and write another compelling mystery or just start writing cook books. This was a waste of time and the whole Ross angle did not belong in the series at all.

    "Disappointed"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Joanne Fluke again?

    Not sure. The series has been running flat lately and really fell short with this newest release.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Suzanne Toren?

    Definitely needed a different narrator.

    "All that was good with this book was the recipes"

    Hanna should never have gotten married. Joanne Fluke must agree as Hanna's husband is invisible. The story line was predictable no challenge at all. I hope Ms Fluke doesn't plan on us readers buying a 2nd book to find out what happened to the boring Ross

    "DISAPOINTED!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have read all the Hannah Swenson books and was so happy to see this book come out. I am so disappointed I don't know if I'll read the rest of the book. I'm on chapter 7 and can hardly get through it. Why did Hannah need to get married, Ross is such a disappointment. To much dialogue, it goes on and on, to many recipes, I feel like she needed to fill more pages so created all these recipes! I fast forward through these.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'll try again with Hannah, just hope the next book is better!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Suzanne Toren?

    Narrator is good, no problems there, she's not at fault for the wordy dialogue.
