Hannah Swensen mystery.
Abstract:
When The Cookie Jar becomes the setting of a star-studded TV special about movies filmed in Minnesota, Hannah hopes to shine the spotlight on her bakery - not the unsavory scandal swirling around her personal life. But that's practically impossible with a disturbing visit from the shifty character she once believed was her one and only love, a group of bodyguards following her every move, and a murder victim in her bedroom. Now, swapping the crime scene in her condo for her mother Delores's penthouse, Hannah and an old flame team up to solve a case that's messier than an upended chocolate cream pie. As suspects emerge and secrets hit close to home, Hannah must serve a hefty helping of justice to an unnamed killer prowling around Lake Eden ... before someone takes a slice out of her!

Booklist Review

As Hannah Swensen struggles to come to terms with the revelation that her husband, Ross, is a bigamist, her family and friends rally around, sharing her outrage. With baking as her solace, Hannah, owner of the Cookie Jar, in Lake Eden, Minnesota, throws herself into work. However, Ross contacts Hannah, begging her forgiveness and asking for the money he left for her when he disappeared. Wanting nothing to do with him, Hannah refuses his request, and Ross threatens her. Her friends and family guard her day and night as they try to figure out why Ross needs the money so desperately. Meanwhile, an actress and friend of Hannah's mother is murdered, and naturally Hannah is determined to identify the killer. While there is little detection here, Hannah's fans will relish following Hannah's journey as she heals and becomes stronger, surrounded by the love of family and the many familiar, quirky residents of Lake Eden. Many delicious-sounding recipes are woven through the story, and Fluke ends this cozy mystery with another cliff-hanger, which will have readers eagerly awaiting the next installment.--Sue O'Brien Copyright 2019 Booklist
