From the New York Times-bestselling author of Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder, "another delicious adventure...a superior cozy sure to leave readers satisfied."—Publishers Weekly
When the president of Hartland Flour chooses cozy Lake Eden, Minnesota, as the spot for their first annual Dessert Bake-Off, bakery owner Hannah Swensen is thrilled to serve as the head judge. But when a fellow judge, Coach Boyd Watson, is found stone-cold dead, facedown in Hannah's celebrated strawberry shortcake, Lake Eden's sweet ride to fame turns very sour indeed.
While perfecting her Cheddar Cheese Apple Pie and Chocolate Crunchies, Hannah's also snooping into the coach's private life, which yields plenty of suspects. Or could Watson's harsh criticism during the judging have lethally ticked off one of the contestants? The stakes are rising faster than dough, because somebody's cooking up a recipe for murder—with Hannah landing on the "necessary ingredients" list.
Includes seven delicious recipes!
"The crime novelist Joanne Fluke has come up with a winning formula...think of a luscious dessert, then add death."—The New York Times
