In this batch of sweet, short murder mysteries, three cooks don’t spoil the broth.
New York Times best-selling author Joanne Fluke pens the title story, in which a box of Hannah Swensen’s gingerbread cookies is found near the corpse of her neighbor.
Popular co-authors Laura Levine and Leslie Meier offer “The Dangers of Gingerbread Cookies” and “Gingerbread Cookies and Gunshots”, respectively.
Together, these three cozies will entertain listeners while compelling them to think twice about a cherished holiday treat.

"Fluke, Levine, and Meier each offer a yuletide whodunit treat.... In Fluke's wry "Gingerbread Cookie Murder," Hannah Swensen of the Cookie Jar in Lake Eden, Minn., wants her neighbor Ernie Kusak to simply lower the volume on his too loud Christmas outdoor display, but she soon discovers Ernie with his head bashed in. In Levine's hilarious "The Dangers of Gingerbread Cookies," Jaine Austen's holiday stay at her parents' home in the Tampa Vistas retirement community is enlivened by the murder of elderly lothario Dr. Preston McCay, whose neck gets broken during his star turn in an amateur play called The Gingerbread Cookie That Saved Christmas. Rounding out the volume is Meier's less cheery but poignant "Gingerbread Cookies and Gunshots," about Maine reporter Lucy Stone's investigation of a four-year-old boy's disappearance."

Don't waste your time or money on this one. So short, and not of the quality of her other work. Then the other two books are not up to the quality of Fluke. So sorry I wasted my money and a credit on this book.
Very disappointed. Only Joanne's book was worth the listen. The other two authors and narrators just DRAGGED on, especially the second story's narrator, she was so irritating with all those overproduced pauses I couldn't skip it fast enough! Sad to say but I couldn't finish listening to the last two stories. Too slow.
I wish I read the reviews first. What a waste of a credit.
That there were other books in this. Joannes book was really short and I didn't want other peoples book i wanted Joannes.
no as long as it is only her book.
I like Suzanne Toren as narrator.
i wasted one of my credits. should have got the next book instead.
I didn't look closely enough to realize I was only buying a short book by 3 different authors instead of one long book by Joanne Fluke.
I loved the Gingerbread Cookie Murder by Joanne Fluke but the other two authors and especially the narrators were not to my liking. I'm not saying they are bad, they are just not for me. I will continue to purchase books by Joanne Fluke.
Great mysteries, humor and Christmas cozy stories. At first I was disappointed that I downloaded a short story book, but soon realized they were just short mystery novels. Loved them all.
The humor. In all the stories, it was the best part.
Well, I always like the main characters mom. This time she was out there looking for love in all the wrong places, can't tell you more or I will ruin the story.
