Hannah Swensen is in the process of baking up a storm at the shop she owns, The Cookie Jar in preparation for Lake Eden, Minnesota's Winter Carnival. Connie Mac the star of a very popular cooking show requests the use of her kitchen for baking the official Winter Carnival cake.
Connie Mac is very manipulative and bad tempered in real life. She has many people who are very outspoken in their dislike for her. She is found dead in The Cookie Jar the morning after she was to have baked the cake and the shop is closed as a crime scene. This leaves Hannah in a fix as she has promised to bake cookies for many of the winter display and warm up tents. She needs to solve this crime as soon as possible.

The recipes look really good; the book was interesting but not incredibly amazing. Your basic cooking mystery book.

I like the interaction between Hannah and her sister, because I, also, am the eldest sister. The characters continue to be fun and not unrealistic.

Publishers Weekly
In her third top-of-the-line culinary cozy (after 2001's Strawberry Shortcake Murder), the delightful amateur sleuth Hannah Swensen once again faces murder and mayhem with good cheer. To fight the late February doldrums, Lake Eden, Minn., is about to celebrate its first winter carnival with ice sports on the lake, activities for children and Hannah's delicious cookies from her shop, the Cookie Jar. The whole town is involved, and even Hannah's mother, who usually spends her time trying to get Hannah married, has found a new interest in recreating the home of one of Lake Eden's founding fathers. Connie MacIntyre, bestselling cook book author and star of a popular cable TV cooking show, has agreed to make the cake for the carnival banquet. But when Hannah discovers Connie's dead body in the pantry of the Cookie Jar, Hannah and her sister Andrea join forces to track down the killer, despite warnings by one of her boyfriends, policeman Mike Kensington, to stay out of the investigation. Since everyone who had contact with the abusive Connie disliked her, the sisters have plenty of suspects.

Hannah is at it again. This is a great series....but I have to say the lead character, Hannah, is sort of annoying. She is a bit of a know-it-all. Good book though!!

These books are cute. But I think after the one I'm reading now I'll take a break for a bit!

Bakery owner Hannah Swensen is back--and the cookies are crumbling--as acclaimed author Joanne Fluke serves readers another helping of murder, mayhem, and mouthwatering mystery....

Preparations are underway for the Lake Eden, Minnesota's annual Winter Carnival-and Hannah Swensen is set to back up a storm at her popular shop, The Cookie Jar. Too bad the honor of creating the official Winter Carnival cake when to famous lifestyle maven Connie Mac is a lot like the confections she whips up on her cable TV cooking show-sweet, light, and scrumptious-looking, but likely to leave a bitter taste in your mouth.
Hannah's suspicions are confirmed when Connie Mac's limo rolls into town. Turns out America's "Cooking Sweetheart" is bossy, bad-tempered, and downright domineering. Things finally boil over when Hannah arrives at The Cookie Jar to find the Winter Carnival cake burnt to a crisp-and Connie Mac lying dead in her pantry, struck down while eating one of Hannah's famous blueberry muffins.

Next thing Hannah knows, the police have declared The Cookie Jar's kitchen crime scene off-limits. She's a baker without an oven-and the Carnival is right around the corner. Hannah's only alternative is to cook up a plan to save her business-by finding the killer herself..........

From back cover:

Preparations are underway for Lake Eden, Missesota's annual Winter Carnival -- and Hannah Swensen is set to bake up a storm at her popular shop, The Cookie Jar. Too bad the honor of creating the official Winter Carnival cake went to famous lifestyle maven Connie Mac -- a half baked idea, in Hannah's opiniion. She suspects Connie Mac is a lot like the confections she whips up on her cable TV cooking show -- sweet, light, and scrumptious-looking, but likely to leave a bitter taste in your mouth.
