Book Review: Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder by Kensington Books
Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder A Hannah Swenson Mystery (Book #1) Published by Kensington Books I really enjoyed this book. I had picked up the books the Cinnamon Bun Murder and the Red Velvet Cake Murder a while back and decided to download this one from my iBooks app. This is the first book in the Hannah Swenson Mystery series. I was surprised by that but glad I had started reading the first in the series. It was a wonderful jaunt into the lives of the residents of Lake Eden. Hannah owns a cafe/bakery called The Cookie Jar and she is constantly handing out little baggies of cookies to people. The book has many cookie recipes that go along with the storyline and they all sound delicious. Once you got past the fact that Hannah is literally doing the job of her sheriff brother-in-law who is aiming for a promotion to detective by solving this case, you find all the characters to be fresh and inviting and as Hannah gets to know people, so do you. It is just a lovely little stroll into Lake Eden and you get to try and solve the case along with Hannah. There is quite of bit of investigating in this storyline, so if you are looking for something that spends more time talking about recipes, you might want to look elsewhere. But if you are looking for a good cozy mystery that is wonderful and fun, this is your book! Pick it up on Amazon.com or you can download it from your iBooks app on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
