Mystery Woman Sleuth
Winter in Lake Eden, Minnesota, is the perfect time to
curl up by a cozy fire with something-and someone-sweet.
But while bakery owner Hannah Swensen can provide herself
with the confections, cuddling will have to take a back
seat to sleuthing when her sometime-squeeze becomes a
With the launch party of her mother's
novel around the corner, Hannah has a dress to fit into
and a date with her sister, Andrea, at Lake Eden's new
health club, Heavenly Bodies. Dragging herself out of bed
on a frigid Minnesota morning for exercise, of all things,

Mike may be the
prime suspect in the murder of man-eating bombshell Ronni

Plenty of Lake Eden's ladies won't miss Ronni, including

micromanaging her every step of the way...
trying to narrow the list of Ronni's enemies down to fewer
than half the town'sfemale population and resisting the
urge to remove Mike from the running by throttling him
herself, Hannah has her plate full. Trouble is, when it
comes to cookies-and to murder-there's always room for one
