Banana Cream Pie Murder (A Hannah Swensen Mystery) - Joanne Fluke

 Banana Cream Pie Murder by Joanne Fluke
Have read the other books in this series by the author and have enjoyed them.
This one starts out with Delores and she's just finished writing her romance regency novel. Story follows the family members and what's going on in their lives.
What I like about this is that there are many generations involved and even if you've not read prior books the author brings you up to date without bogging down all the details.
Usually it's Hannah that finds the dead body as gets clues to solve the mystery-this time it's Delores-Hannah and her husband Ross are on their way back from a cruise.
Recipes are scattered throughout the book. I find the series a bit different now that she's married and no longer dating Norman and Mike. It's just a bit weird. Typical Hannah novel where nothing goes to how you think it should go, lots of drama and same main characters.
Surprise ending after that murder is solved and excerpt from Joanne Fluke's Stepchild is included at the end.
I received this book from Kensington Books via Net Galley in exchange for my honest review.
