I'm not a fan of cozies, but bought this one at a friend's urging. It is a very typical cozy - a small town (with remarkably high crime rate), an amateur detective, no violence. If you're in to baking, I think you've more than likely already found this series, as it is filled with recipes. I was a little put off by the general primness of the characters (oh no! a grown man drinking and meeting women at bars? a woman possibly dating someone of a different race? phew! turns out she's not!), but it was a reasonable listen and probably very enjoyable for someone who likes cozies.

I also enjoyed this book very much. Characters are easy to follow. Easy Fun listening. Good plot also easy to follow. Can't wait to listen to the next one.

I borrow the book from the library, and I started reading from kindle then I purchased the audio. Since I am learning English this feature in which I can read and listen along is helpful. Nice story, narration.
Wonderful light mystery series. I love to try all the great recipes. They are delicious.
Hannah and the gang are wonderful company to have around. Love the cat mixed in.
If you could sum up Lemon Meringue Pie Murder in three words, what would they be?
I loved it.
What did you like best about this story?
I like the way I can relate to the characters in her stories. I could easily lose myself as a resident of Lake Eden.
What does Suzanne Toren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Great voice, inflections and accents. It's easy to tell who is speaking without being told. She has a wonderful gift.
Any additional comments?
Joanne Fluke is a new author for me. I usually find one I like and then read all they have written. Joanne is now on my list to read all she has written. I have only read five so far but am continuing on my journey.
In this fourth book in the series (and my last), the characters are more of the same - boring, insipid, unbelievably naive. I should have stopped by at least book #3.
