Description
Christmas normally descends on Lake Eden, Minnesota, as gently as reindeer alighting on a rooftop—but this yuletide season the only thing coming down Hannah Swensen's chimney is a case of murder . . . The holidays have arrived, and Hannah and her good pal Lisa have agreed to provide all the goodies for the town's annual production of A Christmas Carol. But before anyone can say "Bah, humbug!" a Santa-sized sackful of trouble ensues. Like the fact that Lisa's husband will be playing Mr. Claus to his ex-girlfriend Phyllis Bates' Mrs. Claus. Or that before the curtains even go up Phyllis is found dead in the snow—wearing a costume that the real Mrs. Claus would put on the naughty list. Soon after, the suspects pile up faster than snowdrifts in a blizzard, while a merry murderer remains on the loose. With clues even harder to find, it might take a visit from ghosts of Christmas past to wrap up this mystery in time for the holidays . . . Includes a Dozen Holiday Recipes from The Cookie Jar! "Tasty . . . Hannah is irresistible as a cookie fresh from the oven."Publishers Weekly

But before anyone can say "Bah, humbug!" a Santa-sized sackful of trouble ensues. Like the fact that Lisa's husband will be playing Mr. Claus to his ex-girlfriend Phyllis Bates' Mrs. Claus.

        August 1, 2016
        In Fluke’s tasty 20th Hannah Swenson mystery (after Wedding Cake Murder), the Lake Eden, Minn., baker discovers promiscuous Phyllis Bates’s frozen corpse in the snow. Distressingly, a nearby lunch bag belongs to nice Herb Beeseman and contains caramels made by Herb’s wife, Lisa—Hannah’s partner in the Cookie Jar bakery. Flashback to two hours earlier. At a rehearsal for the town’s annual Christmas show, Hannah and Lisa see Herb, dressed as Santa Claus, kiss Phyllis, scandalously underdressed as Mrs. Claus. It’s “a stage-kiss,” the director says, but Phyllis—Herb’s erstwhile high school girlfriend—clearly meant the kiss and didn’t care who knew. Unlike many cozy sleuths, Hannah cooperates with local police, especially Mike, who counts on her to find the killer. In Fluke’s bestsellers, which spawned a popular TV series, recipes aren’t frosting, they’re the cake. Meticulously detailed, using common ingredients, the dozen sprinkled throughout the text outshine the plot. But Hannah is irresistible as a cookie fresh from the oven, especially in scenes with her father’s ghost. Agent: Meg Ruley, Jane Rotrosen Agency.

        Best-selling author Fluke's (Wedding Cake Murder) latest Hannah Swensen mystery takes place during the yuletide season in Lake Eden, MN. The Lake Eden Players are rehearsing for the annual production of A Christmas Carol, which will be followed by a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus. When sexy Mrs. Claus, aka Phyllis Bates, turns up dead, Hannah prepares for some amateur sleuthing to prove her friend Lisa's innocence. As Hannah's deceased father appears and plays the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future, the visions remind Hannah of crucial details that help her find the unexpected killer. VERDICT With a dozen delectable recipes from Hannah's Cookie Jar bakery, this holiday cozy will hit the spot with foodies and mystery fans.

        In this holiday cozy, Hannah Swensen tells Ross Barton the story of foul play during the Christmas season. Lisa, Hannah's partner at the Cookie Jar, is upset when she is not chosen to play the part of Mrs. Claus to her husband Herb's Santa, especially since the part went to Phyllis Bates, Herb's former high-school girlfriend. Clearly, the predatory Phyllis is still interested in Herb. Herb tells Lisa he is working late, but Lisa discovers he is not at work. When Phyllis is found dead in a snowdrift, Lisa and Herb are both suspects, so Hannah, along with her sister, Michelle, attempts to find the real murderer, all while busily baking for the holiday season. Small-town Minnesota life, familiar and well-drawn characters, the warm frame of the Christmas season, and a dozen delicious-sounding recipes add to this satisfying entry in a comfortable, always entertaining series.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2016, American Library Association.)
