Book number 19 in the series. We find Hannah, owner of a cookie shop, still snooping into murders and unable to make up her mind whether to marry the dentist or the police office. Hannah and her cat Moshe live in Lake Eden, Minnesota, with her mother (a writer of regency romances and owner of an antique furniture store), and two sisters (one a college student and one a realtor married to the county sheriff). Wherever Hannah, or her immediate family go, they seem to find a body. In this book, Hannah is driving her van in a very bad thunderstorm and accidentally hits and kills a man standing on the side of the road. Hannah is arrested and released on bail. All hand on deck to find out who the man was, why he was there, and how to clear Hannah. In the meantime, Hannah and her sisters are trying to plan their mother’s wedding. Unfortunately, their mother can’t make up her mind about anything, even the colors. The book, like all the others, is full or recipes for the cookies and other food mentioned in the book.
Don’t recommend starting the series unless you have read all the other authors you like and are bored. If I hadn’t invested so much time in the other 18 books, I would give this one a pass.
[The series is being adapted for TV as part of the Hallmark Movie and Mystery series.]
