    Hannah's popular Minnesota bakery, The Cookie Jar, is best known for its tempting confections - until best-selling cookbook author and television personality Connie McIntyre is murdered in its pantry. Despite police warnings to steer clear of the case, Hannah is soon chasing down a bevy of suspicious characters.

    Story

    This book was extremely annoying. I don't now how anyone in this town can stand Hannah. She knows everything about everyone and buts her nose into everything. I realized the killer early on but forced myself to finish the book. I wish I hadn't. It wasn't worth it. However, the recipes were good.

    When Mattie Winston catches her husband Dr. David Winston receiving some very special loving care from R.N. Karen Owenby, she quits her job and moves out. Mattie's best friend Izzy offers her a place to stay and suggests she'd be a natural as deputy coroner. Now, instead of taking patients' pulses, Mattie's weighing their hearts and livers. But Mattie's first homicide call turns out to be for none other than Nurse Karen, and even though she saw her ex in a heated argument with the newly deceased the night before, she refuses to believe David could be a killer.

    Story

    This book was a bit slow but I perservered and was rewarded. I liked the characters right away and that kept me going. There were some funny instances and I did not solve the murder before the end of the book. It was worth it. I plan to listen to the next book.

    I enjoyed this book a great deal. Chole is a bit ditzy but she has a good heart. The mystery good and fast paced. Josh is adorable and adds a nice switch to the mystery aspect of the story. I would reccommend this to lovers of cozy mysteries.

    Cops drink coffee. They don't belong in Ellen Rosings's Victorian tearoom. But when her opening day thank-you tea ends in the murder of the president of the Santa Fe Preservation Trust, the police invade her haven. Enter Detective Tony Aragon: attractive and unsympathetic, with a chip on his shoulder that goes beyond the murder investigation, and Ellen's delicate bone china cup is full. Is the murderer one of her honored guests, or the ghost rumored to haunt the building? Will Ellen solve the mystery, or will the Wisteria Tearoom's premiere turn out to be its - and Ellen's - finale?

    The characters aren't that interesting, the pacing is slow and I never got into the plot. The narrator didn't help. She sounded to old for the lead character. I usually love Dina Pearlman. This was just a bad fit for her.

    Story

    I will speak of the positives first. There are recipes included. The narrator Linda Bloom did a pretty good job giving the characters a voice.
    Now the negatives. There is no reason for Suzanne to investigate this murder. She claims he's a friend as well as a customer, but there's no indication of any kind of friendship between them. She knows nothing about this guy. The characters, including Suzanne, are unlikable and uninteresting. Suzanne keeps telling her friends not to get involved because it's dangerous yet she insists on getting involved. She lacks people skills when talking to suspects. The book is slow paced and not very interesting. I read this book out of sheer determination because I paid for it!

    Story

    If you want a cozy mystery with interesting and realistic characters and a funny and complex mystery plot don't get this book. I could not get past the first five chapters. It was predictable and and the characters were one dimensional. The dialogue was also choppy and corny. The characters appeared to be to perfect. Don't waste your credit.
