The heat’s turned up on a busy baker in a novel by the New York Times-bestselling author: “Culinary cozies don’t get any tastier than this winning series.”—Library Journal
When The Cookie Jar becomes the setting of a star-studded TV special about movies filmed in Minnesota, Hannah hopes to shine the spotlight on her bakery—not the unsavory scandal swirling around her personal life. But that’s practically impossible with a disturbing visit from the shifty character she once believed was her one and only love, a group of bodyguards following her every move, and a murder victim in her bedroom. Now, swapping the crime scene in her condo for her mother Delores’s penthouse, Hannah and an old flame team up to solve a case that’s messier than an upended chocolate cream pie. As suspects emerge and secrets hit close to home, Hannah must serve a hefty helping of justice to an unnamed killer prowling around Lake Eden…before someone takes a slice out of her!
Features over a dozen cookie and dessert recipes from The Cookie Jar!
“An updated, country-style classic mystery, meant for simple enjoyment and a touch of admiration at how Hannah always picks herself back up again, even when there’s a body in her bedroom and a disaster in her bakery…The only tough part about the book is the recipes can lure a reader into cooking something before reading the next chapter.”—New York Journal of Books
After reading several reviews I was a bit put off by them; however, I decided to read this book anyway. Frankly this is the best book so far in the series!55
This book is not anywhere near as good as the previous books in this series. Written terribly and very choppy. Not interesting at all. People don’t talk like this in real life. Very hard to read.15
One of her worst books. Only redeeming value is that it continues the Ross saga. Half the book is utterly useless.15
