Overview

It's Tri-County fair time and Lake Eden, Minnesota, is buzzing with more than mosquitoes. Hannah Swensen, owner of The Cookie Jar, is hot on the trail of a killer whose perfect carnival prize would be getting away with murder...

It promises to be a busy week for Hannah Swensen. Not only is she whipping up treats for the chamber of commerce booth at the fair; she's also judging the baking contest; acting as a magician's assistant for her business partner's husband; trying to coax Moishe, her previously rapacious feline, to end his hunger strike, and performing her own private carnival act by juggling the demands of her mother and sisters.

With so much on her plate, it's no wonder Hannah finds herself on the midway only moments before the fair closes for the night. As the lights click off, she realizes that she's not alone among the shuttered booths and looming carnival attractions. After hearing a suspicious thump, she goes snooping - only to discover Willa Sunquist, a student teacher and fellow bake contest judge, dead alongside an upended key lime pie. But who would want to kill Willa and why? Before long Hannah is sifting through motives and a list of suspects which include a high school student Willa flunked, the hot-blooded brothers of a disqualified beauty contestant, a rodeo cowboy, a baking competitor who failed to win her yearly blue ribbon, and the college professor Willa was dating.

As fair week draws to a close, Hannah cranks up the heat, hoping that the killer will get rattled and make a mistake. If that happens she intends to be there, even if it means getting on a carnival ride that could very well be her last...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

The yummy eighth smalltown cozy from Fluke (after 2006's Cherry Cheesecake Murder) finds sometime sleuth Hannah Swensen, owner of the Cookie Jar in Lake Eden, Minn., judging the baking contest at the Tri-County Fair. When one of her fellow judges, home economics teacher Willa Sunquist, is murdered, Hannah determines to sniff out the killer. Was it a man from Willa's mysterious past? Or a student she flunked? Fluke has developed a charming supporting cast--Hannah's besotted (and slightly spineless) two suitors, her overbearing but likable mother, her endearing sisters and her levelheaded business partner all feel like friends by the time the murder is solved. The dozens of tempting recipes Fluke includes are an added treat. (Mar.)

    Food, Murder and Mayhem, what is wrong with that???

    How can you go wrong with a good read, great and easy recipes, and interesting characters? Joanne Fluke has the formula to keep me buying her books time after time. I love to read culinary mysteries and then make the receipes included. Her receipes have to be the easiest written, no sifting? That's my kind of cookie! I've wished that Hannah would choose between Mike and Norman, but then I would probably get bored reading about how utterly happy she is. I love the fact that Hannah isn't 5'6", blond and a size 2, she's a real woman with a brain and faults and I can connect with her. I will keep on going to Lake Eden, Minnesota as long as Hannah keeps on giving great receipes and continues to work through her feelings for Norman and Mike while keeping her Mother at bay.

    Good book

    I have read 10 books in this series, i enjoy them for the most part, but Hannah needs to pick between the 2 guys, its getting kind of old.

    I will continue to read the series as i enjoy the recipes, and maybe soon Hannah will pick the guy she will spend the rest if her life with!

    Key Lime Pie Murder

    This is light reading but engaging; the recipes are a wonderful accompaniment; it continues to keep you guessing who the suitor may be for the main character. I recommend this book for a lazy afternoon.

    School Teachers

    Why would any one want to kill one of Lake Eden¿s schoolteachers during the fair? Joanne Fluke is a master at creating mysteries around food and the recipes make you want to get up and bake.

    Disappointing

    We read this book for our Book Club and I was really excited because it sounded fun to read and have recipes as well. But, I was very disappointed. The story and dialogue were just so unbelievable and unrealistic. These events and conversation would never happen in real life.

    ANOTHER ENJOYABLE BOOK IN THIS SERIES

    I've read several books in this series and have enjoyed each one. If you enjoy mysteries by Tori Carrington, Selma Eichler and Janet Evanovich, you'll love the Hannah Swensen series by Joanne Fluke -- they're fun to read, with lots of twists and turns throughout the story.
