For Hannah, life seems to be lacking a certain flavor lately. Maybe its the local sheriffs election thats got her down. For years, Sheriff Grants been the iron hand in town. But now, Hannahs brother-in-law Bill is giving the old blowhard the fight of his long, dubious careerand Grants not taking it well, especially once the polls show Bill pulling ahead.
But before anyone can taste victory, things go sour. While Hannahs emptying the trash, she makes a very unappetizing discovery: Sheriff Grants body in the Dumpster behind the high school where shes teaching her cooking class. And as if that werent bad enough, the poor man still has fudge frosting on his shirt from one of her cupcakes.
The number oneand onlysuspect is Bill, but Hannahs not swallowing it. Plenty of people had reason to hate Sheriff Grant. Soon, Hannahs dishing up scandalous secrets, steaming hot betrayals, and enough intrigue to keep the gossip mill at The Cookie Jar going through several pots of decaf. And the closer Hannah gets to the truth, the closer she gets to smoking out a murderer with a very nasty recipe for silencing people]
