It promises to be a busy week for Hannah Swensen. Not only is she whipping up treats for the chamber of commerce booth at the Tri-County fair, she’s also judging the baking contest; acting as a magician’s assistant for her business partner’s husband; trying to coax Moishe, her previously rapacious feline, to end his hunger strike; and performing her own private carnival act by juggling the demands of her mother and sisters.

With so much on her plate, it’s no wonder Hannah finds herself on the midway only moments before the fair closes for the night. After hearing a suspicious thump, she goes snooping—only to discover Willa Sunquist, a student teacher and fellow bake contest judge, dead alongside an upended key lime pie. But who would want to kill Willa and why?

Now Hannah needs to crank up the heat, hoping that Willa’s killer will get rattled and make a mistake. If that happens she intends to be there, even if it means getting on a carnival ride that could very well be her last.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nichole Rottinghaus | 2/7/2014

    " This was ok. I wish the author would further develop the characters. Nine books into the series and they're still pretty one-dimensional. I'm not sure if I'll read any more of these. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 1/25/2014

    " On the recommendation of a friend, I decided to try this author. Hannah Swensen is a baker (and coffee lover!) who gets involved in mysteries in her Lake Eden, MI hometown. Willa, a fellow bake contest judge is found dead one night at the local fair. Hannah catches part of the crime and is determined to have the criminal come to justice. Infused with funny family characters, the attention of 2 men and her beloved cat Moishe, the story is witty and cute, but not necessarily a thriller mystery. A few scary and suspenseful parts, but mostly a nice small town story scattered with recipes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 1/23/2014

    " Good fun light read. I love any book with recipes. The oatmeal cookies were amazing! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Victoria | 1/21/2014

    " Two fluff reads in a row--now I'll have to turn to something meatier. I do enjoy Joanne Fluke's mysteries but it's odd that as many as I've read I have never tried one of her recipes that are included. I must do that one of these days. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha | 1/19/2014

    " These books are a nice change from my usual read. Not sure if I'll read the whole series, but I like some of the main characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shawna | 1/17/2014

    " Always a treat! A little slower to get going than the others. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeffrey | 1/12/2014

    " Each chapter ends with a recipe. The murder story was silly. This was an audio book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Norma | 1/11/2014

    " The series is perdicable, but what I liked about Key Lime Pie Murder is the story line is revolving more around Hannah and her relationship with Mike and Norman, not just around the murder. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandi | 1/2/2014

    " Just a relaxing fun read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Falcon | 12/29/2013

    " In the key lime pie murder it probably had the scariest part out of these books that i've read. i really liked it, it was a fun read to get me through my homework breaks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courtney | 12/23/2013

    " Great book! I love these Hannah Swenson mystery novels. Joanne Fluke is a great writer! I can't wait to get my hands on another one of her books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mel | 12/22/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonnie | 12/14/2013

    " Not deep or riviting, but a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcia | 12/8/2013

    " Latest in the series. Plot is somewhat more simplistic than others in this series. However, tidbits of trivia, great cookie recipes, and further character development make this another mystery in the series worth reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanette | 12/1/2013

    " I actually liked this book. The others in this series have not been very interesting and the love triangle has become tedious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 11/26/2013

    " Easy Read. Enjoyed them all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 10/7/2013

    " Another good book in the series. Light, cozy mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 9/10/2013

    " These books are fun, but they don't hold my attention very well. I love how they have yummy recipes at the end of each chapter though. That made it all worth reading! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 February Four | 7/12/2013

    " I've reviewed so many of these books that it really isn't fair to say any more or any less. My stance remains that these are great fun and light reading. Potato chips for the soul. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 lynn | 7/7/2013

    " this was a fair mystery. Too many words and a bit confusing... i would not have guessed who murdered willa or why...however, that could be because i was a bit confused...The recipes included look great... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tonia | 12/29/2012

    " Much better than the last one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 8/6/2012

    " I just couldn't get into this. I found the plot to be very predictable, and there was way too much Moishe for my taste. The recipes are actually very good, which is a plus. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Di | 6/2/2012

    " This was a very enjoyable book. If I were someone else I might actually try to make one of the many recipes that are listed. I will read more of her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 11/11/2011

    " Easy reading. This book was part of a bundle of 5 Joanne Fluke books that I bought on my kobo. Sometimes her dialogues are rather childish, but her recipes sound great, so I've ordered her cookbook! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katreader | 10/17/2011

    " I must admit, I enjoyed the recipes more than the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joann Davis | 10/8/2011

    " Mostly I look forward to the recipes in this series of books. They are quick, easy, lightly entertaining reads. I have read several now & am quite sure I would read another one in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 9/8/2011

    " It was okay. Not much mystery. Could have been much better with a little more research...i.e. using correct rodeo terminology (it's barrel racer NOT barrel rider) and danger / causes of cats not eating / loosing weight too fast. Recipes were great and worth getting the book for. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gwyn | 5/18/2011

    " Took me a while to get through it. It is an easy going book, good for a beach read. The story develops more like I imagine an investigation would than some others I have read. I appreciate the lack of gratuitous violence and sex.

    Overall okay, but not compelling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 5/3/2011

    " These books are fun, but they don't hold my attention very well. I love how they have yummy recipes at the end of each chapter though. That made it all worth reading! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 February | 4/21/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 4/12/2011

    " Loved this one! I guess Joanna Fluke is an older sister/1st child as she describes so well those of us who fit that category. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brandy | 4/9/2011

    " Same story, different book. How long can she ride out the same premise. Cranky, critical red head with no redeeming qualities is being courted by two gentlemen while she bakes cookies and solves murders. Snore! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 4/3/2011

    " Joanne Fluke is an amazing author. This book really drew me in. I never wanted to stop reading. A twist to the ending too. If you love baking, this is the book for you. It even comes with her email address and a bunch of recipes too! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 3/31/2011

    " Currently reading---Lite, enjoyable, characters you "know" in real life. Modern cozy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Norma | 3/8/2011

    " The series is perdicable, but what I liked about Key Lime Pie Murder is the story line is revolving more around Hannah and her relationship with Mike and Norman, not just around the murder. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kandie | 2/16/2011

    " I don't think I can read many more of these, the formula is incredibly obvious and the crime is predictable. The romance angle is just irritating - chose one already! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gene | 2/13/2011

    " Not as good as some of her other books but still enjoyable to read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 1/4/2011

    " Another good book in the series. Light, cozy mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 1/2/2011

    " Another delightful story of Hannah the mystery sleuth. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 1/1/2011

    " wow just another great book in this series "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 11/20/2010

    " It was an ok mystery even though you couldn't figure it out because the author omitted information, so that you couldn't. The two boy friend thing was irritating.

    It had great recipes, which is a good thing. Unless.... you're hungry when you are reading it. "
