"Hannah's up to her ears with Easter orders rushing in at The Cookie Jar, plus a festive meal to prepare for a dinner party at her mother's penthouse. But everything comes crashing to a halt when Hannah receives a panicked call from her sister Andrea - Mayor Richard Bascomb has been murdered ... and Andrea is the prime suspect. Even with his reputation for being a bully, Mayor Bascomb - or "Ricky Ticky," as Hannah's mother likes to call him - had been unusually testy in the days leading up to his death, leaving Hannah to wonder if he knew he was in danger. Meanwhile, folks with a motive for mayoral murder are popping up in Lake Eden. Was it a beleaguered colleague? A political rival? A jealous wife? Or a scorned mistress? As orders pile up at The Cookie Jar - and children line up for Easter egg hunts - Hannah must spring into investigation mode and identify the real killer ... before another murder happens!"--Publisher.
