Hannah Swenson is shocked when she gets a call from her sometime suitor, Norman Rhodes, telling her he's bought a house. What's so amazing is that he plans to make it into their dream house, but he hasn't even asked Hannah to marry him! All domestic thoughts are put aside, however, when a dead body is found. Once again Hannah decides to get involved and find the killer (hey, it takes her mind off the diet she's on!). Before long, though, things get more complicated than Hannah ever could have imagined.

The fourth adventure in the Hannah Swenson series, LEMON MERINGUE PIE MURDER has a multitude of positives to it. Hannah's family is compelling, and I was glad to see her younger sister come home for this book. With every book, Fluke raises the stakes and plots. This book will appeal to many readers.
