Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder
The story is about a woman named Hannah Swensen who lives in a small town in Minnesota. She owns a cookie shop called The Cookie Jar and since it's a small town, knows anyone and everyone who stops into her shop. One morning she goes outside her shop to discover a murder right outside her back door. She teams up with her brother-in-law, who is a local cop, and sets out to catch a killer.
This book is the first in a series of many that have Hannah Swensen as the main character. I enjoyed this book since it was a quick and easy read. I used to read murder mysteries ALL the time (Patterson, Higgins Clark) so this was a nice return to that but on a much lighter, less violent side. An added treat to these books is they come with cookie recipes! I haven't made any of them, but they sure sounded delish. I recommend giving this book a read. It's a fun read with lots of quirky characters and it will keep you guessing until the last few pages.
