The Luscious Los Angeles Times And USA Today Bestseller!

Early summer brings plenty of work for baker Hannah Swensen, even before Mayor Bascomb's wife drops by The Cookie Jar to place an order for her charity event. . .for eleven-hundred cookies! And Hannah almost flips when her business partner, Lisa, suggests setting up an apple turnover stand. But she places her faith in Lisa and agrees to be a magician's assistant in the fundraiser's talent show. . .

The only snag is the show's host, college professor Bradford Ramsey. Hannah and her sister, Michelle, each had unfortunate romances with Ramsey, and when the cad comes sniffing around between acts, Hannah tells him off. But when the curtain doesn't go up, she discovers Ramsey backstage--dead, with a turnover in his hand. Now Hannah must find a killer who's flakier than puff pastry--and far more dangerous. . .

Includes Over Ten Cookie and Dessert Recipes From The Cookie Jar, Including Chocolate Sugar Cookies and Breakfast in a Muffin!

This book is very simplistic. I enjoy the characters, but everything is just a bit too bland, too well, simplistic!

The best part, for me, are the recipes.... not that I try them. But, they are mostly so funny. I have friends in Minnesota [where the series takes place] and the recipes are dead on for what my friends eat. The "hot dish" [casserole], recipes that use cans of soup, etc. I mean, the recipes aren't meant to be funny, but they are dead-on. Just cracks me up. Plus, all of the coffee and hot cocoa.

Although the story is a little simple and the characters somewhat "cookie-cutter", I did enjoy the recipes worked into the storyline and tried several of them.

Fast-moving, as usual. An added complication is that it looks like Hannah may not get either of her two guys, after all her dithering as to which one she wants.

I love Joanne Fluke's mystery series featuring Hannah Swenson, owner of The Cookie Jar. Hannah seems to find dead bodies and gets involved in all the local hoopla surrounding murder investigations. Two swains, Norman and Mike, are always around to give her a helping hand. Humourous and heartwarming, this is a terrific mystery series.
