Reader reviews for Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder

This was fun ala Annie Darling and Harry Haristeen in that they all have other successful careers/lives and end up almost needing to solve murder mysteries.Hannah Swenson owns a very successful cookie shop. One morning her milk deliver man is late and then she finds out why when she discovers his body in an alley right next to her shop. This leads her to aid the detective on the case, who also happens to be her brother-in-law, in solving the mystery to the point (as usual) of nearly getting killed herself.As an added bit of fun, she gives the recipes for seven of the cookies that she mentions in the book. What could be better than that!

This is a yummy murder series featuring a single Minnesota cookie baker with a knack for detective work. In this one the milkman is found dead and she helps find who done it (with several cookie recipes in between).

When I heard about this book, I thought, oh, great, another foodie mystery. I read Diane Mott Davidson, and that was enough for me, thank you very much. But I guess you could say the bright covers kept calling to me at the library. So when I saw the first, I figured why not? I could always quit at any time if I was bored or if something else came along. Well, Fluke managed to suck me in quite quickly. I love her relationship with her cat, coffee, but especially her mother. Even the mystery was interesting enough to hook me rather quickly. Did have to suspend my disbelief a couple time through the book. (really? The cop is getting help from his SIL the baker?) I will be reading the second (and have in fact already picked it up) as it was light and quick, and I want to see where this romance triangle goes.

Due to LT I ran into this series and I like it! Cozy mysteries just work sometimes when you've read more difficult stuff and are busy in the rest of your life. Sometimes the story is slightly predictable but it's always fun to find the killer with a semi-detective. And I like the cookie recipes. I really should try some of them.

Got this as my Christmas pressie from Tim. Man, he got me hooked to this series! The heroine sounds awfully like me. Late 20's, cookie baker with a nose for mysteries and loves cats. No wonder I was hooked.And the easy and fluid way that Joanne writes - it makes for a good book to curl up to on a lazy Sunday or any busy weekday for the matter.Love it!

Hannah is a gourmet cookie maker in a small town in Minnesota. She uses her cookies and her curiosity to get behind the scenes info on a pair of homicides that have the local authorities baffled. A good mystery, some great cookie recipes, and an amusing (and accurate!) look at small town life.

Got this one to read the 119 page novella in the re-issue of this title. Very cute story about a young run away staying in the Cookie Jar over night to keep warm.

I only read this as it was a chepa purchase for my new e reader. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was very light and easy reading. I loved how the recipes for the cookies for each occasion were given. I can't wait to try some.

Bubblebathbooks.net (aka Bubby and Sissy) review of The Hannah Swensen Mysteries by Joanne Fluke. Sissy says that if you are going to read a cozy mystery then this series is a good place to start. Bubby says they are funny. Entertaining. The characterizations are excellent - I love the interaction between Hannah's mom (a beautiful well-kept widow who knows best about everything) and Norman's mom (also a widow who meddles a lot in her children's lives)! What about the relationship between Hannah and her sisters? And Hannah and Mike and Norman? Epic. For full review see bubblebathbooks.net
