Joanne Fluke is one of the greatest and best-selling writers of our time, and she has her trademark writing style that allowed her to squeeze into the top. On one hand, she's writing riveting, engrossing mystery thrillers slash detectives, but on the other one, her novels always come with a great sense of humor and plots that include all kinds of culinary feats.
Hannah, the main character of this story, is just back from a stunning honeymoon, and she can't wait to grow some roots in Lake Eden and to turn her dreams into a reality. However, she doesn't even get a chance to start when the cops find her mom's neighbor dead in the condo. The police start a full investigation that interferes with Hannah's bright plans.
Victoria used to be a critically-acclaimed and fan-favored actress, and she spent a lot of time in the theatrical circles while she was in town. Along the way, she made a huge line-up of enemies and foes, so that puts the official version of a random murderer killing the dame into question. What if there was a far more sinister and deadly scheme in motion? And if so, then who was crazy enough to do that?
Hannah isn't thrilled about the investigation, to say the least, but she goes through the never-ending list of suspects and tries to take care of her own problems. Solving this case won't be a piece of cake, that's for sure. Oh, and the girl will have to stay alive long enough to tell her grandkids about it. Banana Cream Pie Murder is a lean-back, relax and enjoy kind of a novel that you can devour on the weekend while sipping your favorite tea/coffee/juice. Get comfy in that chair of yours and help Hannah solve the crime!
