Book Review of Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder (Hannah Swensen, Bk 1)

Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder (Hannah Swensen, Bk 1)
robinmy avatar reviewed on + 1945 more book reviews

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.
