Book Review: Gingerbread Cookie Murder by Joanne Fluke

Posted on

I received Gingerbread Cookie Murder, a short novella in the Hannah Swensen cozy mystery series by Joanne Fluke, as one of my Christmas presents last year. I’ve a big fan of the series and always look forward to the read. It took me 1 hour to read this story, part of a larger paperback focused on murders involving gingerbread cookies. It’s ~150 pages, but 1/3 is filled with recipes, so it’s just under a hundred pages of true text. In this issue, Hannah is having trouble with her new neighbor who plays loud Christmas music all the time. But she soon finds him dead in the refrigerator after trying to store her recent baked goods for a future dessert. Add in an $8M winning lottery ticket, someone’s divorce, a new dentist in town, and a suitor for Hannah’s mother, then you’ve got lots going on in this one. It was a fun afternoon read and I look forward to the next book in the series.

    Sounds interesting. I have not read a book with recipes interspersed in the tale.

    Sounds like a lot of juicy elements packed into those one hundred elements.
