It's Tri-County fair time and Lake Eden, Minnesota, is
buzzing with more than mosquitoes. Hannah Swensen, owner of
The Cookie Jar, is hot on the trail of a killer whose
perfect carnival prize would be getting away with murderâ€¦
It promises to be a busy week for Hannah Swensen. Not only
is she whipping up treats for the chamber of commerce booth
at the fair; she's also judging the baking contest; acting
as a magician's assistant for her business partner's
husband; trying to coax Moishe, her previously rapacious
feline, to end his hunger strike, and performing her own
private carnival act by juggling the demands of her mother
With so much on her plate, it's no wonder Hannah finds
herself on the midway only moments before the fair closes
for the night. As the lights click off, she realizes that
she's not alone among the shuttered booths and looming
carnival attractions. After hearing a suspicious thump, she
goes snoopingâ€“only to discover Willa Sunquist, a student
teacher and fellow bake contest judge, dead alongside an
upended key lime pie. But who would want to kill Willa and
why? Before long Hannah is sifting through motives and a
list of suspects which include a high school student Willa
flunked, the hot-blooded brothers of a disqualified beauty
contestant, a rodeo cowboy, a baking competitor who failed
to win her yearly blue ribbon, and the college professor
Willa was dating.
As fair week draws to a close, Hannah cranks up the heat,
hoping that the killer will get rattled and make a mistake.
If that happens she intends to be there, even if it means
getting on a carnival ride that could very well be her lastâ€¦
