It's June in Lake Eden, Minnesota, and for Hannah Swensen, that means bridal showers galore, plus a massive fundraising event in need of confections - not to mention a killer who never learned that charity begins at home...Early summer brings plenty of work for Hannah, even before Mayor Bascomb's wife drops by The Cookie Jar to place an order...for eleven-hundred cookies! Stephanie Bascomb is organizing an elaborate three-day event to support local charities, and though it's a worthy cause, Hannah almost flips when her business partner, Lisa, suggests setting up an apple turnover stand. Hannah's never made a turnover - but, pushover that she is, she places her faith in Lisa's mother-in-law's recipe and agrees to be a magician's assistant in the fundraiser's talent show...Dozens of pastries and one hideous purple dress later, Hannah has to admit that stepping out of her comfort zone has been fun as well as profitable. The only snag is the show's host, community college professor Bradford Ramsey. Hannah and her younger sister Michelle each had unfortunate romantic relationships with Ramsey, and when the cad comes sniffing around between acts, Hannah tells him off. But when the curtain doesn't go up, she discovers Ramsey backstage - dead as a doornail with a turnover in his hand...Now, to protect her reputation and Michelle's, Hannah must get to the bottom of the professor's bitter end. There are plenty of scorned suspects, including an ex-wife who feels cheated in more ways than one, and a prominent local who may have been using Ramsey to avenge her own randy spouse. But who was unstable enough to snuff out Professor Love? A killer who's flakier than puff pastry - and far more dangerous...

Having to deal with the professor is one thing, but when Hannah finds the man dead, that's completely something else. Hannah must put her personal feelings aside, as most don't know of her relationship with the man, and find his killer. Is the cad's killer closer than she thinks?
Who would read this: Fans of cozy mysteries and the hannah swenson series!
Time to Read: 3.5 hours
Rating: 4/5 stars
Funny Story: I've been reading this series for the past few months, and i've become quite the sleuth in real life.
Final thoughts: While this series is traditionally pretty easy to 'figure out' early on for me at this point, the character development and the recipes keep me coming back!
I love the fact the the hero of her books is a heroine. I find myself challenging myself to find the murderer before Hannah does. In this particular book I did, but I didn't have proof before Hannah. It does bother me that Hannah seems to get herself in trouble with the murderer at the end of several murderers at the end of many of the books (including this one) and she has to be rescued. I would like her to be better than that occasionally.
