Tall, curly-haired Teddie St. John - superb baker, bohemian bon vivant, mystery writer - is out walking her American Eskimo dog, Gracie, when her four-legged friend finds her missing silk scarf. The only problem? The scarf’s tied tightly around the neck of a beautiful blonde woman, Kristi, the fiancée of a touring British author.
Before you can say Wisconsin kringle, Teddie becomes a murder suspect. Everyone in Lake Potawatomi knows all too well that the distinctive scarf is hers. But there are more layers to this case than there would have been on poor Kristi's wedding cake. Tavish Bentley should be bereaved after his sweetheart's strangling; instead, the dashing Brit takes a shine to Teddie's witty wisecracks and to-die-for cookies. Soon he's mooning over her instead of mourning his bride - that is, when he's not dodging the attention of Annabelle, an obsessive fan who's taken to stalking him.
And when a second murder shocks the community, the plot thickens to the consistency of fondant as Teddie stands accused of not one but two murders. With the help of her friends Sharon and Char, can Teddie clear her name and deliver a killer's just desserts?
