Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery
Summertime has finally arrived in Lake Eden, Minnesota,
and Hannah Swensen, owner of The Cookie Jar bakery, is
looking forward to warm, lazy days, eating ice cream, and
sharing picnics with friends. But when a family reunion
takes a deadly turn, it's up to Hannah to find a killer...
Between baking up a storm for The Cookie Jar and
unraveling the mystery of her cat Moishe's recent strange
behavior, Hannah Swensen has a lot on her plate. But
she'll always make time for her business partner, Lisa,
who's in the midst of preparing for a big family reunion.
Everyone is delighted when Lisa's long-lost uncle makes a
surprise appearance. No one has heard from Gus in twenty-
five years--and his arrival has everyone buzzing with
Uncle Gus is immediately the hit of the
reunion, telling tales of his great success and flashing
money for all to see. He's almost as popular as Hannah's
scrumptious carrot cake, which is also Gus's favorite
dessert. But the next morning, as the whole family gathers
for the group photo, one person is missing. Hannah offers
to track down Uncle Gus, but her search leads to a
shocking find. Over by the bar at the pavilion, she spots
two slices of her infamous carrot cake, frosting-side down
on the floor--and Gus's corpse with an ice pick jutting
out of his chest!
A little snooping reveals that not
everyone was celebrating Gus's return. And when Hannah
unearths more secrets from Gus's past, she discovers even
more people with an axe to grind. Now Hannah's got to sift
through a long list of suspects to find a killer--even if
it could mean a recipe for her own demise...
Includes 12 original dessert recipes for you to try!
