With The Cookie Jar, Hannah Swensen has a mouthwatering monopoly on the bakery business of Lake Eden, Minnesota. But when a rival store opens, tensions begin to bubble. . .As she sits in her nearly empty store on Groundhog Day, Hannah can only hope that spring is just around the corner--and that the popularity of the new Magnolia Blossom Bakery is just a passing fad. The southern hospitality of Lake Eden's two Georgia transplants, Shawna Lee and Vanessa Quinn, is grating on Hannah's nerves?and cutting into her profits.At least Hannah has her business partner Lisa's wedding to look forward to. She's turned one of Lisa's favorite childhood treats into a spectacular Wedding Cookie Cake. And Lisa's aunt will be bringing her famous Peach Cobbler to the reception. But Hannah starts to steam when she finds out that Shawna Lee has been invited--and is bringing her own Peach Cobbler.Hannah doesn't like having the Georgia Peach in the mix, especially when both Shawna Lee and Hannah's sometime-boyfriend, Detective Mike Kingston, are no-shows to the wedding. Hannah has suspected that Mike is interested in more than Shawna Lee's baking abilities. So when she sees lights on at the Magnolia Blossom Bakery after the reception, she investigates--and finds Shawna Lee shot to death.Everyone in town knew the Cookie Jar was losing business to the Magnolia Bakery--a fact that puts Hannah at the top of the initial list of suspects. But with a little help from her friends, Hannah's determined to prove that she wasn't the only one who had an axe to grind with the Quinn sisters. Somebody wasn't fooled by the Georgia Peaches and their sweet-as-pie act--and now it's up to Hannah to track down whoever had the right ingredients to whip up a murder. . .

We're back on track with Fluke's 7th Hannah Swenson mystery. Sugar Cookie Murder was such a let-down, that I was really hoping this one would be better, and I wasn't disappointed. This mystery has at least a two book setup, which was a nice surprise for me. Shawna Lee is the one murdered in this one, and I can imagine every other reader breathing a huge sigh of relief. She's not only been getting in the way of Hannah and Mike's relationship, but she opened up a bakery right across the street from The Cookie Jar, which is just as frustrating. I would have liked to have seen a bit of cat-fighting between Shawna Lee and Hannah before the murder, but the two of them never even had a chat before it happened. I understand that confrontation doesn't happen very often in Lake Eden, but where I'm from, we're used to being open, honest, and in people's faces when there's a problem. Hannah didn't even fight for her business, and got extremely lucky that the victim was the one who owned the rival bakery. It also frustrates me that Hannah can't choose between Mike and Norman. Just how long is Fluke going to draw this love triangle out, anyways? Other than these nitpicks, the mystery was good, as was the reveal and the motive. On to the next.
