Hannah’s youngest sister, Michelle is back home for the holidays and the family is hoping for a nice quiet Christmas. That goes up in flames when Delores finds the body of one of the local residences in the basement of Norman’s newly acquired house. The only clue was one of Hannah’s lemon meringue pies with only 1 piece eaten. Though Hannah tries to stay away from investigating the murder everyone, even her mother, pulls her back into her investigation in order to solve the mystery of the poor woman’s death.
This is a very fun book, however, I did figure out who that killer was 1/2 through the book so that is the only part I didn’t like. The characters are growing nicely in this book. We are starting to see the merits of each of the 2 men that Hannah is dating, now that they have ironed out that they 2 men are jealous of each other. Though this series is very long, I am looking forward to how the relationships continue to evolve in the future. I’m hoping that this series goes the way of the Stephanie Plum series, where the relationships continue to be developed 28 books down the line. This book is worth the read.
