Key Lime Pie Murder (Book 9) by Joanne Fluke

The yummy [ninth] small-town cozy from Fluke (after 2006's Cherry Cheesecake Murder) finds sometime sleuth Hannah Swensen, owner of the Cookie Jar in Lake Eden, Minn., judging the baking contest at the Tri-County Fair. When one of her fellow judges, home economics teacher Willa Sunquist, is murdered, Hannah determines to sniff out the killer. Was it a man from Willa's mysterious past? Or a student she flunked? Fluke has developed a charming supporting cast—Hannah's besotted (and slightly spineless) two suitors, her overbearing but likable mother, her endearing sisters and her levelheaded business partner all feel like friends by the time the murder is solved. The dozens of tempting recipes Fluke includes are an added treat. (Mar.)

This is yet another case of too much time lapsing between finishing and writing the review. I listened to Key Lime Pie Murder in late February and I'm writing this a month later. Even though I know there are many more books featuring Hannah after this one, there was one (maybe two?) time(s) that I can remember being afraid for Hannah's life. I really do enjoy listening this series on audio. The books are fun to read/listen to.
