"Not even Lake Eden's nosiest residents suspected Hannah Swensen would go from idealistic newlywed to betrayed wife in a matter of weeks. But as a deadly mystery unfolds in town, the proof is in the pudding. 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!"-- Provided by publisher.

This is the first book I have read in this series. Unfortunately, it did not encourage me to read others. The mystery definitely took a back seat to the recipes. The focus on food and recipes was overwhelming and distracting.

Very disappointed in this book. The book was over 3/4 done when a body was discovered and the killer came in the next couple of chapters. Too much cooking and recipes in this book. The ending did leave you this a cliffhanger, but don't know if I'll read it.

I used to enjoy the earlier books in this series when I was looking for a light read. I've been very disappointed with the last 3 or 4. It seems like in the more recent books, Fluke has a series of recipes should like to use and crams them into the story with a heavy hand. I don't remember her earlier books as having as many recipes or having the recipe so obtrusively added. I have read some of Fluke's other books that don't involve Hannah Swensen, and her plot development is much better. I like the idea of a cozy mystery series set in a town that the more you read, the more you know the town, and the more you enjoy seeing people pop up in the background of the current story, but I feel like Fluke is running out of ideas for this series, but not out of recipes.

I try to like this series but I just can't get into it. This one has little plot and even less mystery. I am taking a break from Hannah.

I have been reading Ms. Fluke's culinary mysteries for a decade now! This one is pretty cool, another exciting cliffhanger at the end! Like many, I was sad Ross turned out to be a louse!

Easy read. I wish the author could spend more effort strengthening out the plot. There is a lot of "filler" details that i feel she keeps repeating ie) feet up game with the cats, meal preps, drinking coffee, eating meals..etc. there is no substance to the storyline when you keep reading these details. Overall, the poor plot makes this book not her best work.
