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. The votes are evenly divided between Detective Mike Kingston and town dentist Norman Rhodes. Then movie mania takes over and Lake Eden locals turn into local Hollywood wannabees. Suddenly, Hannah finds herself serving up treats for cast and crew, including ex-college crush Jeffrey Barton, who's now a Hollywood producer (and who's turned into quite a treat himself) and ever-demanding director Dean Lawrence, who has a hankering for cherry cheesecake. Everything seems to be right on schedule until Dean demonstrates a suicide scene with a prop gun that turns out to be lethal. Now there's a real body on the set and a growing cast of suspects, including an amorous lead actress, her smitten older husband, and even a Lake Eden local who publicly threatened to kill Dean if he threatened to move a statue that was blocking his light. 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 to be there--"ready to rewrite a killer's lethal script with the kind of quirky ending that can only be found in Lake Eden.
