Overview

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.

Everything’s on schedule until Dean demonstrates a suicide scene with a prop gun that turns out to be all too real. As filming continues, Hannah sifts through the clues, hoping against hope that the person responsible for Dean’s death is half-baked enough to have made a mistake. When it happens, Hannah intends be there - ready to rewrite a killer’s lethal script with the kind of quirky ending that can only happen in Lake Eden...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Joanne Fluke's mildly entertaining Cherry Cheesecake Murder: A Hannah Swenson Mystery with Recipes, the seventh entry in her cozy series set in quaint Lake Eden, Minn. (after 2005's Sugar Cookie Murder), finds our heroine up to her usual tricks: keeping her hometown happily fed with tasty cookies, chatting with her precocious niece and, of course, sleuthing. Hannah's two beaux, nerdy Norman and hunky Mike, willingly put up with her inability to choose between them, but readers are likely to weary of her by now tedious shilly-shallying. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Even the murder of its cranky director can't stop the filming of Crisis in Cherrywood or halt the snooping of Lake Eden's premier baker. Just when Hannah Swenson's decided to accept neither of the marriage proposals tendered at the end of Peach Cobbler Murder (2005)-turning down both sweet-tempered dentist Norman Rhoades and hot-blooded lawman Mike Kingston-another suitor turns up. Her old college classmate Ross Barton, now a Hollywood producer who thinks Lake Eden is just the spot to shoot his new movie, recruits Hannah's mom Delores as set designer, her younger sister Michelle as production assistant and her middle sister Andrea as an extra. He even casts Andrea's five-year-old, Tracey, to play heroine Lynne Larchmont as a child and presses Hannah's cat Moishe into service as her childhood pet. For Hannah he reserves the role of constant companion, escorting her to dinner, inviting her to view the dailies and letting her watch the filming-which gives her a front-row seat as Dean Lawrence, instructing leading man Anson Burke on how to use a prop pistol, shoots himself fatally instead. Since Mike has made it clear to Hannah that she must leave investigating to the professionals, she can't investigate, she can only snoop-much to the delight of Andrea, Norman and Lake Edenites everywhere. Fluke lavishes so much attention on the mechanics of location shooting that there's scant time for the murder, much less its solution.

    Great read...

    Well I love the Swensen mystery series. They are all great and this one isn't disappointing. However, the only part of the story that turned me off was the one of Hannah rejecting her 2 proposals and feeling a little tingle with Ross (some guy she knew in college). I think Hannah should choose already. I used to the whole love triangle of the story, but now it's just getting old. However, the story was great. The plot took a little more to get to then the other books, but it was still worth it. It always amazes me how the murder suspect always turns out to be someone you don't even imagine. I love that Joanne Fluke always keeps the reader on their toes in regards to who committed the murder and why. Cannot wait to read Key Lime Pie Murder...

    This book reminded me of some kind of third grade romance book i

    This book reminded me of some kind of third grade romance book instead of a mystery book.  Apparently, the main character, Hanna Swenson, is "the boss" in a supposedly romantic relationship with two men.  After having a cup of coffe and a couple cookies with an old college friend, apparently she considers him to be in the mix as well.  And that's about as exciting as this book gets.  There's some stupid stuff about an overweight cat, two overbearing mothers, two dumb as rock sisters, and an annoying five-year-old who made me want to puke.  Somewhere in there is a murder that is very easily solved.  My first and last read in this series.

    Easy, fun read

    Joanne Fluke does not disappoint. I recently discovered the Hannah Swensen series, and while at times predictable, it does keep me amused, entertained and intrigued. I have been reading the series in order and I have been very pleased so far. The books are pure entertainment, no hidden messages, etc.

    Good series

    This was one of the best books of the series. However, I don't like how she treats Norman...like a doormat. He should give up on her and move on. So far, she hasn't met an eligible man that doesn't make her "tingle".

    Highly Reccomenend all here books in this series

    I am really enjoying reading all of Joanne Flukes "murder" series. Not only is she a entertaining writer, but the books are a fun read. Plus all her recipes are in each story, and I plan to make tons and tons of her cookies from all her new cookie and bar recipes. I also ordered her Lake Eden Cookbook, which has most of the recipes printed in them. Anyone who enjoys a fun read by Fern Michaels and her Sisterhood series, will also enjoy all the Joanne Fluke murder series
