Annie Graceland's a baker with a pinch of psychic ability. She can see and talk to ghosts. Much to her dismay, they also talk to her—nagging her incessantly to solve their murders. Annie's mom signs her up to be a judge at Wisconsin's inaugural Hot Guys Contest. When hometown Hot Guy, Mr. Oconomowoc, is killed and doesn't pass to the Afterlife, he begs Annie to investigate his murder. Now she's not only a pageant judge, but also meddling with suspects that include her former high school rival, an old boyfriend, Hot Guy contestants, a supermodel, and a mysterious illegal betting ring. It doesn't help that Detective Jamie Ryan, a boy from Annie's past is all grown up, sexy as sin, and determined to make her fall for him. Annie’s about to discover that going back home can be sweet as frosting or worse than a cake wreck. The temperature's rising at the Hot Guys Contest...
