I really enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to reading this series. I picked up this book with the assumption it would be a fun read and I was intrigued by the prospect of recipes from the story included. I was not disappointed. It was a fun easy read with characters that you can relate to and characters that you would love to get to know. Do no pick up this book if you are looking for a serious but fun crime novel - this will not be the book for you. I can't wait to try some of the recipes!

I love this series, even though the story is sometimes interrupted with recipes. But! :) Having said that, I love the recipes. This first story in the series is really nice... just a "cozy" read without having to work your brain hard to keep up. You can actually relax with these books and yet the stories are well thought out and the books run along at a good pace. I highly recommend them if you're not after an "intellectual" mystery.

small town + murder + baker/amateur detective + cookie recipes = a too cutesy set up!

Full of cliches, it was very difficult to buy the premise of this story (and, I guess, the rest of the series). Hannah is single, 30 yr old, moved back home, with a cat, iffy relationship with younger prettier sister, obsessive mother, looking for love ... etc.
It takes a while to set up the first murder, which is supposed to establish the atmosphere, relationships, and routine. Hannah seems to have a more understanding relationship with her brother-in-law, who actually is a member of the local police and investigating the murder, than with her sister and mother. He allows her to join the murder investigation; she ends up taking it over. No one seems to question her authority to usurp a murder investigation, there is no concern about contaminating a crime scene or the importance of the chain of evidence.
There is an opportunity for some humor with her mother and her constant search for a beau for her eldest daughter, but that seems to be a missed opportunity. I was expecting something in the style of Meg Cabot or Nancy Martin who both have series with touches of humor and a light style.
This story was trying too hard to be cute!
