This fun new story from the Queen of Culinary Cozies is just the indulgence you need this winter! Cozy mystery fans know that a trip to The Cookie Jar—Hannah Swensen’s famous bakery—will always result in a delightfully page-turning whodunit…

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!

Spring has sprung in Lake Eden, Minnesota, but Hannah Swensen doesn't have time to stop and smell the roses--not with hot cross buns to make, treats to bake, and a sister to exonerate!

Hannah's up to her ears with Easter orders rushing in at The Cookie Jar, plus a festive meal to prepare for a dinner party at her mother's penthouse. But everything comes crashing to a halt when Hannah receives a panicked call from her sister Andrea--Mayor Richard Bascomb has been murdered...and Andrea is the prime suspect.

Even with his reputation for being a bully, Mayor Bascomb--or "Ricky Ticky," as Hannah's mother likes to call him--had been unusually testy in the days leading up to his death, leaving Hannah to wonder if he knew he was in danger. Meanwhile, folks with a motive for mayoral murder are popping up in Lake Eden. Was it a beleaguered colleague? A political rival? A jealous wife? Or a scorned mistress?

As orders pile up at The Cookie Jar--and children line up for Easter egg hunts--Hannah must spring into investigation mode and identify the real killer...before another murder happens!

My Thoughts: 

This book follows Hannah as she finds herself dealing with another murder and this time the suspect is none other than her sister Andrea.  Hannah gets called in by Mike and Lonney to help solve the murder as the Sherrif Bill can't be envolved when it envolves his wife. Who killed Mayor Bascomb and why?  Was it his wife Stephanie sick and tired of his cheating ways?  Or was it a disgruntle girl he had a past relationship with?

I had some problems with this book while it was still the same mystery we've come to know with Hannah.  This one had alot of crazy internal speak in her mind which made me think Hannah has gone crazy.  Her cat and her haven't returned home or sold it or anything.  I think Hannah needs to man up and either sell the condo or move out of Norman's house.  Parts of this book was so cheesy.  It made Andrea look like a moron who needs Hannah or she can't function without her.

This book was weird to say the least.  It was missing something maybe it's Hannah's independence.  Usually she just does what she wants and doesn't wait for other people to do it for her or guide her through decisions in her life.  So crazy!
