The Writers View:
The movie plays the perfect fantasy and also created an appealing character with Hannah Swenson, the owner of the little town bakery that likes to dabble in the police dealings. She may take away numerously just like Jane Marple because the instincts were right. She bakes so many delicious goodies that no one wanted to incarcerate her particularly the sheriff who adore her delivery to the station.
