Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: "Brother Fritz wants to sell. Sister Petra wants to expand. The Bircher family has manufactured cookies in the picturesque Swiss canton of Schwyz since the late 1800s. And Annie Young-Perret was warned, when she took an assignment to write a history of the company, about the ongoing sibling feud over control of its future.

When Fritz is found shot to death, the police arrest Petra.

Petra hires Annie’s French husband, an ex-police detective, to prove her innocence, and Annie can’t resist helping. Meanwhile Annie continues delving into the family history, where she discovers generations of unimaginative men paired with ambitious women who have had the vision to take the company to new levels.

Fritz had been negotiating with a firm that specializes in buying and stripping other companies, but his murder happens before the sale is completed. The company lawyer tries to replace the jailed Petra with a manager who will move ahead with the deal. The employees, however, own enough stock to rebel. They put the popular marketing manager Brett Windsor, an American, in control.

At home, Brett’s marriage is in deep trouble, but he doesn’t want a divorce. He wants the best for his two daughters―and he is also trapped because Swiss banks are closing the accounts of Americans. He has put every asset in his Swiss wife’s name. A divorce will leave him with nothing.

As clues accumulate, Annie’s instincts are telling her who killed Fritz―but her plan for a confrontation may be deadly.
