Between baking up a storm for The Cookie Jar and unraveling the mystery of her cat Moishe’s recent strange behavior, Hannah Swensen has a lot on her plate. But she’ll always make time for her business partner, Lisa, who’s in the midst of preparing for a big family reunion. Everyone is delighted when Lisa’s long-lost uncle makes a surprise appearance. No one has heard from Gus in twenty-five years.

Uncle Gus is immediately the hit of the reunion. He’s almost as popular as Hannah’s scrumptious carrot cake, which is also Gus’ favorite dessert. But the next morning, as the whole family gathers for the group photo, one person is missing. Hannah offers to track down Uncle Gus, but her search leads to a shocking find. Over by the bar at the pavilion, she spots two slices of her infamous carrot cake, frosting-side down on the floor—and Gus’ corpse with an ice pick jutting out of his chest.

Now Hannah’s got to sift through a long list of suspects to find a killer … even if it could mean a recipe for her own demise.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 12/24/2010

    " I love mysteries, whether they're darker or lighter. This series tends to gravitate to the lighter side. It's entertaining and captivating while it lasts, and isn't that what a book is supposed to do? I would probably never read it again but I'll probably write down the recipes. "

    " Always a fun and easy read. "

    " Ok, I'll give it 2.5 stars. Maybe even 2.7. This is a great book for easy, light reading. There was a lot of (in my opinion) pointless chatter for dialog, which I had to skim over. This consisted of about a third of the book, so a lot of it was a wasted read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charmaine | 11/22/2010

    " Maybe I am getting to used to her books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 S | 9/17/2010

    " Again, don't read these for the twisting plot - there isn't much. But the local is enjoyable. On the order of The Cat Who ... books. "
