Blackberry Pie Murder

Book 17, A Hannah Swensen Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


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.  .  .

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 06, 2014 – Early in bestseller Fluke's witty 17th novel featuring bakery owner Hannah Swensen of Lake Eden, Minn. (after 2013's The Red Velvet Cupcake Mystery), Hannah finds yet another dead body that of the unidentified man she hit and apparently killed while driving on a highway during a summer rainstorm. Of course, it was an accident, but Hannah winds up arrested and arraigned. After one of her two suitors, dentist Norman Rhodes, bails her out, Hannah learns that the stains on the victim's shirt are not blood but blackberry pie and an autopsy reveals that he was dead before her car hit him. Hannah is now free to look for a killer, as well as look into the case of a runaway who has been missing for years. Tempting recipes at the end of most chapters, including one for fresh blackberry cookies, will appeal to anyone who loves to bake. Author tour.

Customer Reviews

Blackberry Pie Murder what happened?

This book is missing an ending. The characters were very likable and the storyline good and the recipes interesting but the author obviously ran out of words before she finished the book leaving the readers feeling cheated. The central character is facing a trial in connection with the main event in the plot. Fluke leaves us wondering along with the character what the outcome of the trial will be. This was the first and last book I will read by this author.

Blueberry Pie Murders

I just finished reading this book without an ending. It has a great big pending instead of a suitable ending.
We have NO idea what happens to Hannah re. felony criminal charges.
I'm a longtime fan not sure if I will read another Hannah book.

Good but really?

I have always loved the Hannah Swenson series but the author has taken a definite turn in this book and I am not sure I am happy with it. I won’t spoil it but I have also read the next book in the series and my opinion has not changed. Author’s perogative to change things up but it just seems to be going in the wrong direction for me personally. I will keep reading the series for now but sad somehow...
