Publisher's Summary

It's been a sleepy summer for the folks of Lake Eden, Minnesota. In fact, it's been a whole four months since anyone in the Swensen family has come across a dead body - a detail that just made the front page of the local paper. And that means Hannah Swensen can finally focus on her bakery. . .or can she? Life is never really quiet for Hannah. After all, her mother's wedding is a little over a month away and guess who Delores put in charge of the planning?
Yet just when Hannah believes her biggest challenge will be whether to use buttercream or fondant for the wedding cake, she accidentally hits a stranger with her cookie truck while driving down a winding country road in a raging thunderstorm. Hannah is wracked with guilt, and things get even worse when she's arrested. . .for murder! But an autopsy soon reveals the mystery man, his shirt covered in stains from blackberry pie, would have died even if Hannah hadn't hit him. Now, to clear her name, Hannah will have to follow a trail of pie crumbs to track down the identity of the deceased, find a baker who knows more about murder than how to roll out a perfect pie crust - and get herself to the church on time. . .

Abrupt Ending

What would have made Blackberry Pie Murder better?

Finish story lines. The book ended abruptly with two or three issues hanging.


What could Joanne Fluke have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Finish the story lines. Have a decision made between Mike and Norm for goodness sake. It is becoming a joke.


Would you be willing to try another one of Suzanne Toren’s performances?

I enjoy the narration although I think Suzanne's narration depicts Hannah as being too old.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

A little disappointment.

A Book With No Ending

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story just abruptly stopped with no proper ending. It leaves the reader wondering what happens regarding the events happening in the book. Also, it is time for the long, drawn out love triangle to end!


Would you ever listen to anything by Joanne Fluke again?

Maybe, but I will wait for the reviews first. I think she has run out of ideas on this storyline.


Which character – as performed by Suzanne Toren – was your favorite?

Delores


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment


Any additional comments?

These characters have become so boring and tedious and the love triangle so ridiculous. It is time for the author to wrap up the story and start something new. Also, the recipes would be better put at the end of the book instead of breaking up the story. And stop talking down to me so much in the recipes.
