Hannah is surprised when Norman buys some property to build the dream house that they had designed for a contest. Everyone one assumes that he has asked Hannah to be his wife, but alas, he has not. Still Hannah is happy that Norman is finally leaving his mother’s home. Norman first has to tear down the house that still occupies the land, and has offered his mother and Hannah’s any of the things there for their antique shop. Unfortunately, also occupying the house is a dead body. Hannah has been pressed into service to dig up the clues, and she is determined to succeed, even if it kills her. This sweet cozy will have you reaching for a piece of pie to enjoy while you match wits with these engaging characters to solve the mystery. ( )

Hannah Swenson is at it again - solving the murder of a middle-aged flirt who had just inherited her aunt's estate. (I figured it out on page 193.) ( )

It's summer in Lake Eden and Hannah's Cookie Jar cafe has expanded to selling pies on Fridays. Norman has bought property out by the lake which he wants to demolish and rebuild with their "dream house". The seller, Rhoda Scharf, had inherited the house from her aunt, and is leaving for a long vacation in Rome. Since she doesn't want to keep anything in the house, Hannah, Norman and Delores, Hannah's mother, go out to the house as there are some antiques that Delores wants for her store. Hannah finds one of her lemon meringue pies in the kitchen with one slice taken, and remains of a take-out dinner in the garbage. While Delores is checking the basement, she discovers Rhoda's body in the furnace room, partially buried. Hannah is encouraged to investigate.

Andrea, Hannah's pregnant sister, takes on the job of designing a Cookie Jar float for the July 4 parade, and Michelle, their 19-year old sister, comes home from college for a holiday. She's still torn between Norman and Mike. The killer is discovered within a week. An enjoyable read. ( )

My first Hannah Swensen Mystery. I liked the characters but felt there were too many to keep track of. I liked Hannah in particular. Encouraged to read more of the series. Coookie recipes made me hungry! :) ( )

I feel a bit dishonest giving this book one star, but in some ways it does deserve it. I skipped some parts. I was distracted and couldn't give the story proper attention. I'm already forgetting large chunks of the story. The first chunk (I estimate at about 100 pages) was very nice and cozy. The author took her time to lower Hannah gently into the mystery. It never got any other way except downhill from there. There wasn't much twittering of Tracey to endure, but when one superfluous character falls, another takes its place. It's like a hydra or the roman legions. Anyway I found the Michelle character boring. It was weird to find inter cultural ( that's how it says it right in the book) romance taboo - I simply wish to move on to the next book and be done with this review. ( )
