Review

"A wonderful mystery...This book is as warm and cozy as a dozen Cinnamon Crisps! This series may remind some of another well-known series that includes recipes, but it is better!" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If you haven't read any of the other Hannah Swenson mysteries this really isn't a good place to start (go back to The Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder!)I think that you have to be quite familiar with the characters to get the most from this novella.

The Sugar Cookie Murder does fit into the sequence of novels, but doesn't have the usual depth or detail in the story, I think because it is considered as a 'Christmas Special'. The novella is actually 200 pages long and the rest of the book is filled up with recipes, not just for cookies, but also for chilli, cakes, sugar coated pecans and loads more.

It was enjoyable but didn't give me my usual Hannah Swenson fix!

I am going to class this book as a short story as the novel is really only the first half of the book. The rest is made up of all the recipes that feature in the Christmas Pot Luck dinner which is taking place in Lake Eden and the recipes of which, Hannah Swensen are getting published in to a cook book. (Can you see what the author has done here? - Yes me too!)

If you know Hannah, then you will know this will not be any ordinary Pot Luck dinner.With all her friends, family and fellow Lake Eden residents gathered with all their dishes, to sample there are bound to be some tensions. No more so when resident Martin brings his new wife who married in Las Vegas after only a few hours. Brandi is a stereotype Vegas dancer (code for stripper) and it looks like they are rubbing his ex wife and mother in law noses in it. It is with some expectation that one of these four ends up dead.

With everyone trapped in the community centre due to the blizzard outside the murderer cannot have got far. They must still be inside enjoying the food and the party atmosphere. Therefore it is down to Hannah with help from her heavily pregnant sister Andrea and one of her love interests Norman to come up with the answer that other love interest Mike seems to be slow in coming up with.

Not one of the best Hannah Swensen mysteries, but it made for a very pleasant diversion and it builds more on the who will Hannah choose scenario - Norman or Mike. I prefer Norman, Mike seems to arrogant, but I am starting to hope it is all resolved soon. In the meantime, if you wanted you could cook some of the delicious recipes!

I am currently working my through the Hannah Swenson series on my kindle. Initially I was wary about getting this book as I had been a little put off by some of the reviews. However I am so pleased that I went onto read it as I do think I would have been missing a chunk of the story when I moved to the next book (Peach Cobbler murder).

All the books in this series are fairly light hearted detective stories and do not take themselves too seriously. There is a lovely set of recipes in each book and I actually thought the inclusion of the additional recipes in this book was a nice touch, given the story is about the compilation of a community cook book.

All the measurements are American i.e. measured in cups but these are now readily availble in the UK as are conversions on the internet and I think this adds to the charm.

Overall happy with my purchase

I had eagerly awaited the release of this book, but was very disappointed when I read it. The mystery is quite lame, the characters aren't developed any furhter. The actual story is incredibly short as half the book is taken up with ALL the receipes that are mentioned in the book. I can buy a cook book for that with english measurements! I was really looking forward to a good mystery. If you want a mystery that will take you 5 mins to read and then cook the receipes mentioned (more time sent on mentioning them than effort into the story), this is the book for you.
If your no cook, or already have plenty of cook books yourself, avoid this one. Believe me you can read the next one in the series without feeling you missed anything!!

Not so much a mystery as a cookery book. I had enjoyed the previous books in the series even though I had skimmed through the recipes at the end of each chapter. I wish I had read the reviews before downloading as I wouldn't have bothered. The 50% of the book which was not recipes, was padded out with waffle . All it did was make me dislike Hannah even more than before, she really is an unlikeable character, Norman would be way too good for her.
