Preparations are under way for Lake Eden, Minnesota’s annual Winter Carnival – and Hannah Swensen will be extra busy at her shop, The Cookie Jar. Too bad the honor of creating the official Winter Carnival cake went to famous lifestyle maven Connie Mac – a half-baked idea, in Hannah’s opinion. She suspects Connie Mac’s sweet cable-TV image is a cover for something more bitter.

Hannah’s suspicions are confirmed when Connie Mac’s limo rolls into town. Turns out America’s “Cooking Sweetheart” is bossy, bad-tempered, and downright domineering. Things finally boil over when Hannah arrives at The Cookie Jar to find the Winter Carnival cake destroyed – and Connie Mac lying dead in her pantry, struck down while eating one of Hannah’s famous blueberry muffins.
