Take one amateur sleuth. Mix in some eccentric Minnesota locals. Add a generous dollop of crackling suspense, and you've got the recipe for this delicious new mystery series featuring Hannah Swensen, the red-haired, cookie-baking heroine whose gingersnaps are almost as tart as her mouth, and whose penchant for solving crime is definitely stirring things up.

Hannah already has her hands full trying to dodge her mother's attempts to marry her off while running The Cookie Jar, Lake Eden's most popular bakery. But once Ron LaSalle, the beloved delivery man from the Cozy Cow Diary, is found murdered behind her bakery with Hannah's famous Chocolate Chip Crunchies scattered around him, her life just can't get any worse. Determined not to let her cookies get a bad reputation, she sets out to track down a killer. But if she doesn't watch her back, Hannah's sweet life may get burned to a crisp!

User Review  - Hanneri - LibraryThing

This is a very light, but enjoyable cozy mystery. For me, it provided a welcome bit of escapism. I would recommend it if you are looking for a break from reading material that is complex, and/ or tragic. If you enjoy baking, the book also contains many recipes for cookies and dessert bars.

You'll be craving cookies by the end...

First book of the series - very enjoyable! I like the way Joanne Fluke writes and I love the small town quaintess of the setting. The characters are cozy. It's a nice read - I'm already onto the 3rd book in the series. Highly recommend if you enjoy this genre. Read full review
