#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – It’s one week before Christmas in the small, generally quiet town of Eden Lake, Minnesota. After not pursuing romance for most of her adult life, Hannah Swensen, owner/operator of Hannah’s Cookie Jar, a bakery/café, is being wooed by two men, who know about the other in Hannah’s life. Hannah likes both a lot, but has not even kissed either. While her mother, Delores Swensen, is pushing her into the arms of dentist Norman Rhodes as the person who will provide her with a stable, comfortable life, her sister, Andrea Todd, is pushing her into the arms of Andrea’s deputy sheriff husband Bill Todd’s colleague, police detective Mike Kingston, as the more exciting choice. What seems to be becoming a more chronic issue in Hannah’s life is that she is the person who finds someone murdered in Eden Lake, this time the victim being one of her customers, Larry Jaeger, co-owner of the Crazy Elf Christmas tree lot with his fiancée, Courtney Miller, the two who got engaged after knowing each other for only six weeks. Larry’s murder is only the second such in recent memory in the town, and the second such body Hannah has discovered. Hannah can’t help but get involved in the investigation, either by accident or usually more on purpose, which irks both Norman and Mike as putting her life in danger. Mike is additionally bothered that her amateur sleuthing is interfering with his official investigation. At the top of the suspect list is Delores’ friend, Nancy Schmidt who is better known in town as radio talk show host on issues of the lovelorn, Dr. Love. Nancy is not Larry’s ex-wife as she had implied to Delores, but rather his wife – at least up until his murder – he who she claims not to have seen in ten years as he bilked her out of her money and disappeared without a trace until now. The further Hannah and Mike investigate, the further they find that Larry was generally not a nice person who had many enemies who had motive to want to see him dead. What Hannah may or may not be aware is that she is getting closer to the truth which truly does put her life in danger as the murderer would probably not hesitate to murder a second time if she gets too close to discovering the truth.
Plot: A young bakeshop owner’s holiday season takes a surprising turn when she finds a body at a local Christmas tree lot and winds up involved in a dangerous murder investigation. With colorful characters popping up as suspects, shady business practices uncovered at the tree lot and holiday romance in the air, the young baker-turned-sleuth must race against time to track down the killer and save the Christmas season.

Bad portrayal of the original book
I was so excited to watch the movie after reading the entire series of the Hannah Swensen series. Whoever directed this paid little to no attention to the actual characters, details, and vision of the books. Hannah’s hair is supposed to be red and short, her mother is supposed to have short hair, in a few of the movies you never see her youngest sister Michelle, her cat Moishe is supposed to be a big furry red haired cat. There’s many more details I could list, it’s so disappointing to see the movie and it does the book 0 justice. Please pay attention to the actual books. Joanne Fluke is a great author, her books deserve a better movie that actually highlight her characters.
“Boiled in his own plum pudding”
The small town of Eden Lake in rural northern Minnesota is rapidly becoming the murder capital of the stat per capita. Fortunately they have an able amateur sleuth in the person of Alison Sweeney bakery proprietor and creator of the region’s best baked goods.
Other than the film is set at Christmas time and plum pudding has come down to us through Charles Dickens as a Yuletide delicacy and someone urges Sweeney to put it on the menu plum pudding really has nothing to do with the story.
But Christmas sure does. Kirby Morrow has opened a seasonal business the Elf’s Christmas Yard where he sells Christmas trees. He winds up shot to death and of course it’s Alison Sweeney along with town dentist Larry Hogan who finds him. After that no matter how much she’s warned no keeping this woman away from a homicide she discovered.
As it turns out Morrow was one sleazy conman and a lot of people have reason not to mourn him. He’s got a long estranged wife in town who hosts a radio show about romantic advice and a current fiancé who invested heavily in the business. And there are others.
I have to say in the end I felt a lot sympathy for the perpetrator. A good lawyer could get the person off.
Sweeney has been wavering between Hogan and police detective Cameron Mattison in the various Murder She Baked films. Whomever she marries I see a Lucy/Ricky like relationship with her being constantly warned you can’t get into the homicide investigation.
And when she does she’ll have a lot of ‘splainin’ to do.
