Discover The Delicious Mystery That Started It All!

No one cooks up a delectable, suspense-filled mystery quite like Hannah Swensen, Joanne Fluke's dessert-baking, red-haired heroine whose gingersnaps are as tart as her comebacks, and whose penchant for solving crimes--one delicious clue at a time--has made her a bestselling favorite. And it all began on these pages, with a bakery, a murder, and some suddenly scandalous chocolate-chip crunchies. Featuring a bonus short story and brand new, mouthwatering recipes, this new edition of the very first Hannah Swensen mystery is sure to have readers coming back for seconds. . .

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 cleverly plotted cozy full of appealing characters and delicious cookie recipes." --Publishers Weekly

Enjoyed reading the recipes more than the story. Very bland and no character development. Hannah is not a likeable character.

This is the first book in the series where she meets the two men who begin to date her. The story has a few twists and turns. Just when the story hits the climax, you feel you have solved Ron's murder. But it's someone else who committed the double homicide. The book has an addition of a short story called Candy for Christmas. The story had weak lines in it but the candy recipes look like something worth trying.

It is definitely a strange name for a book, but I loved it. I even copied the recipes I'd like to try. I know I have found a new favourite book series.
