The cover of the book I have doesn't match this image but the isbn is correct. Not sure what that's about. Ignore my stars - I didn't read this book. It's #8 in a series. I started reading #1 because that's what I do. I didn't like it so I can't read #8 so I'm posting them both.
This is a delightful getaway that includes wounderful
sounding recipes. I love the female lead, unofficial
detective. I do enjoy murder mysteries.
This looked like a series I would like so I actually started with the first in the series! By using the website Fantastic Fiction, I was led to the series of Hannah Swensen, cookie baker/store owner. Hannah lives in a small town of about 300 people in Minnesota. During tourist season, it about 4 times that size but after Labor Day, it is just the "regulars". Hannah owns and operates The Cookie Jar where the only sold other than cookies is coffee and tea. On her way to open the store, she notices a few unusual things but the worst is walking back to her vehicle seeing the driver for Cozy Cow Dairy shot to death in his delivery truck. Her brother-in-law, Bill, the local sheriff's detective asks her to help him figure out why Ron (the driver) was shot. In doing so, Hannah learns more than she ever wanted to know about Lake Eden's residents. Then she and her sister, Andrea, discover the body of the owner of Cozy Cow and all the citizens wonder if some maniac has chosen their little town to go on a killing spree. The book is full of surprises and twists, a bit of romance here and there and a shocking end. To make it even better, Ms. Fluke includes some yummy cookie recipes too! I am looking forward to reading all of this series. :)
