There is no such thing as privacy in Lake Eden, but Hannah never thought things would go this far. 

Everyone has been telling her what to do ever since she got not one but two marriage proposals. The votes are evenly divided between Detective Mike Kingston and town dentist Norman Rhodes. Then movie mania takes over, and Lake Eden locals turn into local Hollywood wannabees. Suddenly, Hannah finds herself serving up treats for cast and crew, including ex–college crush Ross Barton, who’s now a Hollywood producer (and who’s turned into quite a treat himself), and ever demanding director Dean Lawrence, who has a hankering for cherry cheesecake. 

Everything seems to be right on schedule until Dean demonstrates a suicide scene with a prop gun that turns out to be lethal. Now there’s a real body on the set and a growing cast of suspects, including an amorous lead actress, her smitten older husband, and even a Lake Eden local who publicly threatened to kill Dean if he threatened to move a statue that was blocking his light. As filming continues, Hannah sifts through the clues, hoping against hope that the person responsible for Dean’s death is half-baked enough to have made a mistake. When it happens, Hannah intends to be there, ready to rewrite a killer’s lethal script with the kind of quirky ending that can only be found in Lake Eden.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/8/2014

    " Growing up in a small town where movies have been filmed, I enjoyed reading how Hannah and crew handled "Crisis in Cherrywood" being filmed in Lake Eden. "Cherry Cheesecake Murder" was a great cozy mystery that hit the spot! Also, the recipe for Ooey Gooey Chewy Cookie Bars is a hit and I highly recommend it! "

    " The cliffhanger from the book previous was not resolved to my satisfaction. I liked this one-but that was my complaint. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 1/26/2014

    " The series is growing on me and I'm enjoying the recipes that are included. On to the next one! "

    " Time for a sweet treat! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hollie | 12/12/2013

    " I love this series, but this was my least favorite so far. I feel like it was rushed. Hopefully the next one makes up for it and it is as good as the others!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 12/4/2013

    " Probably 3 1/2 stars for this book. This was the first book in the series I had read (even though it is number 8...) WARNING: DO NOT READ THIS BOOK IF YOU ARE DIETING....This book is 4 or 5 stars fun, but it took half the book to find the mystery and then it was predictable. I almost stopped listening after the first chapter because the premise that a woman could be proposed to by two different men on the same day seemed a little fantastic. If you can get past that, and aren't looking for something suspenseful, this is really a fun book! Sprinkled throughout are some amazing recipes. It really brings together some of my favorite things...reading, food and fun. Despite its 3-star rating, I will probably read more of these in the future since they are just fun! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brooke | 11/27/2013

    " I liked the main character and a good clean mystery with delectable recipes blended into the story. My kind of book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 11/8/2013

    " I know that these are supposed to be fun, easy reads, but I think Fluke is starting to make it too easy to figure out what is going on before she decides to tell you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 11/6/2013

    " cute easy read good for traveling, silly, simple. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 9/11/2013

    " good enjoyable, light read. Written differently from most mystery stories. Author doesn't follow the covennant of giving the reader enough clues so they can attempt to solve crime. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 9/8/2013

    " what a hoot! love the cherry cheesecake tie in and recipes! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeanette | 2/24/2013

    " These books just don't do it for me. I was bored out of my mind. There wasn't even a mystery/murder until page 230. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 L | 6/22/2012

    " I found this book to be a little cheesy.....no pun intended...but if the pun fits.... Honestly it wasn't one of the most riveting, page turner mysteries out there, but it was a nice distraction which I needed at the time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 4/25/2012

    " Light easy reading but so much coffee drinking it wears me out! The dessert recipes are really good :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 9/21/2011

    " This book also has a littl twisted because Hannah finally does find a dead body!! Good read but it's killing meto see if she ever picks between the 2 men in her life!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maria W | 7/18/2011

    " It was OK. I was looking for a quick, mindless read and it fit that category. Main character too naive for my tastes. The recipe for the Ooey Gooey Chewy Cookie Bars in the book received thumbs up at our get together last night though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 7/2/2011

    " This mystery was centered around a movie set/cookie shop in a small town. A little slow for me, but an easy, cozy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 4/23/2011

    " Nice easy reading. She always figures it out! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 February | 4/14/2011

    " These books are the mental equivalent of that snack/junk food we love: empty calories, but you read them anyway because they're fun! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 3/31/2011

    " Enjoyed myself completely - again. This is a really fun-to-read series. "

    " I love these books. They are a lot of fun. I also love the recipes at the end of each chapter. I have tried some of them and they are very good, quite rich but good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 3/5/2011

    " Another filler book for me. Late-night feedings allow for lots of reading! Fluke's books are entertaining, but not memorable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy | 2/10/2011

    " This book was long...If you like recipes, this book is loaded. I found it hard to get into the story. Not one of my favorites. "
