FARCE/MURDER-MYSTERY. When the cookie money goes missing and the museum curator is found dead, bake-sale volunteers at the Houtini House Museum immediately suspect foul play. But with the police chief away on vacation, the bake-salers are forced to put aside their mixing bowls to become volunteer sleuths. Finding clues proves difficult, but with the aid of a teenage mystery buff, they manage to find the murder weapon—a plate of brownies. However, when another body shows up, the bake-salers wonder if they can unravel the mystery before anyone else partakes in a sweet to die for.
