After evaluating her feelings about the two men vying for her affections, Hannah Swensen, the owner/operator of Hannah's Cookie Jar bakery and coffee shop in Eden Lake, Minnesota, believes she is more attracted to Police Detective Mike Kingston, the more exciting one, than she is to dentist, Dr. Norman Rhodes, the safer one. These feelings are despite Norman being more prepared to make a commitment, while widowed Mike is still not ready, having not even talked to her about his marriage to his recently deceased wife, Lydia.

Cute Movie Series For Foodies & Hopeless Romantics
Hallmark's cozy mysteries movie series (Murder She Baked, The Gourmet Detective, Flower Shop Mysteries, etc.) is intended to be fun and family-friendly, so think of them as more like episodes of a T.V. show. They're romance movies but have an actual plot. They're best for watching while you cook and clean, because you can follow the plot without paying full attention. That's why it's perfect that the Murder She Baked series is about a pastry chef. Her narration, her cooking tips, and the fact that she uses her baking expertise to help her solve mysteries is what makes the series worth watching. Especially since foodie movies are usually incredibly depressing, and thus unappealing to me. I love how seeing Hannah bake makes me excited about baking. Also, the fact that Hannah listens to a radio show that gives cheesy romance advice, similar to The Delilah Show and the host looks similar to Delilah Rene Luke, is a relatable guilty pleasure.
