Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder by Joanne Fluke

Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder (Hannah Swensen, #1)Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder (Hannah Swensen #1) by Joanne Fluke

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A few lines from the book to entice you to get it. :)

'Hannah stopped several feet from the truck and called out "Hi, Ron. Do you want me to call a tow truck?"
Ron didn't answer. Hannah walked closer, called out again, and moved around the door to glance inside the truck.
The sight that greeted Hannah made her jumpback and swallow hard. Ron LaSalle, Lake Eden's football hero, was lying face up n the seat of his delivery truck. His white hat was on the floorboards, the orders on his clipboard were rattling in the wind, and one of Hannah's cookie bags was open on the seat. Chocolate Chip Crunches were scattered everywhere and Hannah's eyes widened as she realised that he was still holding one of her cookies in his hand.
At first Hannah's shocked mind refused to believe what she was seeing. Ron's body was stiff and lifeless, any fool could see that, and he had died eating one of her cookies'

Cookie-baking heroine, Hannah Swensen find's an old school friend, Ron LaSalle's dead body in the alley behind her shop 'The Cookie Jar'. Her Brother-in-law a police officer hoping for a promotion to detective asks for her help in finding Ron's killer.

I found this book fun, light hearted and quirky. It has 7 Yummy cookie recipes scattered throughout too. I can't wait to find out what Hannah gets upto next.
