Description:

Summertime has finally arrived in Lake Eden, Minnesota, and Hannah Swensen, owner of The Cookie Jar bakery, is happy to help her business partner, Lisa, prepare for a big family reunion. Everyone is delighted when Lisa's long-lost uncle, Gus, makes a surprise appearance. Well, almost everyone.

She'll have to sift through a long line of suspects to find a killer--and it could prove to be a recipe for her own demise...
 
My Thoughts:

This book takes place in August Lisa and Herb are hosting a family reunion where everyone shows up over 100 guests among those guests is Uncle Gus who slinked out in the middle of the night when he was in his twenties.  He’s back and flashing his gold, and money and success.  But is he all he claims to be?  When Gus is killed at the night of a family dance, it’s up to Hannah, Michelle and Andrea to figure out who killed the questionable Uncle!

This book had fellow characters traveling all over from researching someone at Michigan University to traveling to New Jersey and back.  We also learn about Delores hidden secret that she has been working on.  This was as always a great adventure with interesting things to learn about Lake Eden!
