This is the first book in the Hannah Swenson Mystery series... after reading it, I couldn't stop reading the rest of the series. The books are very well written, and the fist book launched the series very well.

I am now hooked on Joanne Fluke's books! And I have tried a few of her recipes (Peanut Butter Melts, Little Snowballs, Pecan Chews), and they were all EXCELLENT cookies. I'm keeping this book for the recipes AND the reading!
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 mystery series featuring Hannah Swensen, the red-haired, cookie-baking heroine whose gingersnaps are almost as spicy 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 Dairy, 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!
