Love is in the air of Lake Eden, Minnesota as Hannah Swensen, proprietor of The Cookie Jar bakery looks forward to the Valentine's Day wedding of her employee Lisa to policeman Herb Bessemann. However, life is not all hearts and flowers at the Cookie Jar, as the bakery's business has trickled to almost nothing with the opening of a rival cookie shop across the street called The Magnolia Blossom. The Magnolia Blossom has just been opened by two sassy southern sisters who are giving out great promotional deals and plenty of flirtation along with their cookies, which turn out to be quite mediocre. But the novelty of the new store and the scoop-neck blouses worn by the sisters seem to be bring all the cookie business in town to their store. When Shawna Lee Quinn, one of the southern cookie divas, is found shot to death in her store kitchen the morning after Lisa and Herb's wedding, Hannah enlists her sleuthing friends to try to determine whodunit. Hannah feels she must clear herself from suspicion of the murder, as Shawna was not only her baking rival but also seemed to be quite friendly with Hannah's sometimes boyfriend, deputy Mike Kingston.

Hannah and sister Andrea are also grappling with their widowed mother's new boyfriend, a slick newcomer to town named Winthrop Harrington the Second. Their mother seems to be falling hard for the suave Englishman, and the girls are worried that her mother is being taken advantage of.

Another fun entry in this series, complete with yummy recipes!

Book Description: "With The Cookie Jar, Hannah Swensen has a mouthwatering monopoly on the bakery business of Lake Eden, Minnesota. But when a rival store opens, tensions begin to bubble... As she sits in her nearly empty store on Groundhog Day, Hannah can only hope that spring is just around the cornerand that the popularity of the new Magnolia Blossom Bakery is just a passing fad. The southern hospitality of Lake Edens two Georgia transplants, Shawna Lee and Vanessa Quinn, is grating on Hannahs nervesand cutting into her profits. At least Hannah has her business partner Lisas wedding to look forward to. Shes turned one of Lisas favorite childhood treats into a spectacular Wedding Cookie Cake. And Lisas aunt will be bringing her famous Peach Cobbler to the reception. But Hannah starts to steam when she finds out that Shawna Lee has been invitedand is bringing her own Peach Cobbler.

Hannah doesnt like having the Georgia Peach in the mix, especially when both Shawna Lee and Hannahs sometime-boyfriend, Detective Mike Kingston, are no-shows to the wedding. Hannah has suspected that Mike is interested in more than Shawna Lees baking abilities. So when she sees lights on at the Magnolia Blossom Bakery after the reception, she investigatesand finds Shawna Lee shot to death.

Everyone in town knew the Cookie Jar was losing business to the Magnolia Bakerya fact that puts Hannah at the top of the initial list of suspects.

Somebody wasnt fooled by the Georgia Peaches and their sweet-as-pie actand now its up to Hannah to track down whoever had the right ingredients to whip up a murder"

I think this is one of the best in the series. Things are not going well in Hannah's life and I think it makes her more human.

Quick, easy read with delightful characters, recipes, and a plot twist that is somewhat--but not completely--expected. Fluke didn't disappoint me!

Normal enjoyable cooking murder mystery with a woman who wants to date the same multiple guys and new ones where needed for the plot, but doesn't accept/like them going out with other women. Getting old now so perhaps in one of the later books she settles for one or moves on to others.

At this point I may stop reading them but haven't decided for sure since I do like these type of simple small town stories. Lillian Jackson Braun and the Koko and YumYum are a favorite also. After finishing Anne Rice's "Interview with a Vampire" I can't help myself and need to say that Fluke has Hannah comment on others use of the the English language. There are worse writers and editors out there who don't have major mistakes in their stories but this series is not one of them. I probably won't read another of Anne Rice's novels because I don't really care for the characters and plot but for the pure enjoyment of a well written book this one is highly recommended and assume her others are equally well done. Fluke usually has multiple places where I shiver at her word usage, punctuation, and/or phrasing.

Note: Ding me all you want for my phrasing, punctuation and or word usage but I am merely attempting at conveying my opinion and realize I have many shortcomings when using, or speaking, this convoluted, confusing, and at times very frustrating language that is American English.

All of her books are "yummy!" This one has a plot turn that seemed spmewhat improbable to me, but enjoyable anyway!

Another smile-filled book in the series. I think if you read these books close together, it would lose some of the fun, but the adventures of cookie-maker Hannah, however unlikely, make for a lot of entertainment on a cold winter's night.
