What the Critics Say

"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."

    "GingerBread Cookie Murder"

    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.

    That there were other books in this. Joannes book was really short and I didn't want other peoples book i wanted Joannes.


    Has Gingerbread Cookie Murder turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no as long as it is only her book.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Suzanne Toren?

    I like Suzanne Toren as narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    "Enjoyed 1/3 of stories"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    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.

    Story
    "What a fun group of stories!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gingerbread Cookie Murder to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The humor. In all the stories, it was the best part.


    Who was the most memorable character of Gingerbread Cookie Murder and why?

    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.
