And it all began on these pages, with a bakery, a mur...  more »

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!

This was a fun quirky story which I enjoyed very much. I am very excited to see the author in person tonight (March 21, 2012) at her book signing in Scottsdale at the Poisoned Pen. Looking forward to buying her next book Cinnamon Roll Murder and getting it signed.

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!

A wonderful read (and the recipes are great too)! The author includes recipes in all the books of this series about a baker who has a tendency for finding dead bodies! Her interactions with friends and family members are very realistic.

A fun book, filled with lots of recipes for cookies! I had no idea who the murderer was until the very end. Looking forward to the next book in the series...and to trying some of the recipes!

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. :)

Hannah Swensen owns The Cookie Jar, a small coffee house and bakery in Lake Eden, Minnesota. Life in this small town is good, until Hannah finds Ron LaSalle, the delivery man for Cozy Cow Dairy, murdered in the alley behind the bakery. As Hannah discusses the murder with her brother-in-law, Deputy Sheriff Bill Todd, he asks her to help him uncover the killer.

This is the first book in the Hannah Swensen series. I liked Hannah and her determination to help her brother solve this mystery, but I did find it strange that he would ask her to help. I don't think the police would want a civilian interviewing suspects. But, it did move the story forward and put Hannah into the thick of the whodunit.

This mystery had loads of suspects with a couple red herrings. I eliminated some suspects only to add them back to the list later. I'm looking forward to more of this series. My rating: 3.5 Stars.
