Today’s is National Cherry Dessert Day & National Blueberry Cheese cake day ! So today it’s Cherry Cheesecake book day ! Lisa
Hannah Swensen and her bakery, The Cookie Jar, bask in the glow of Hollywood glamour when Main Street becomes a movie set. And although tensions simmer as the cameras roll, no one expects the action to turn deadly. . .until it’s too late. . .
There’s 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. Movie mania soon shoves Hannah’s marriage dilemma into the background and even gives her cat a shot at stardom. The Cookie Jar serves as snack central with Main Street rented out for the week. She stirs lots of fresh gossip, whipping up treats for cast and crew, including demanding director Dean Lawrence’s favorite–cherry cheesecake.
From Publishers Weekly
The mildly entertaining seventh Hannah Swensen mystery (after 2005’s Sugar Cookie Murder) finds our heroine up to her usual tricks: keeping her hometown of Lake Eden, Minn., happily fed with tasty cookies, chatting with her precocious niece and, of course, sleuthing. A movie crew in search of a quaint Minnesota location has landed in Hannah’s ‘hood, and filming goes smoothly until the director, a womanizing tyrant, accidentally shoots himself on the set. But was his death really an accident? Of course not. Someone nabbed the unloaded prop gun and left another revolver in its place. Between baking batches of Double Flake Cookies and Angel Kisses, Hannah figures out whodunit. What she can’t figure out is her personal life. Hannah still refuses to choose between her two beaux. Nerdy Norman and hunky Mike put up with her indecisiveness, but readers are likely to weary of Hannah’s by now tedious shilly-shallying.
