Oh NO!!!! Another book series. Good news… Or bad news depending on how you look at it. I don’t have access to the full series at the moment as my library doesn’t hold them all. I will be looking for this book in either Ebook form or in second-hand bookstores (Which ever is cheaper, though the E-books only cost 5.50 CAD a book). I love the hallmark movie series that this is based on, but the characters are very very different so if you have watched the movies and the storey lines are very different. You will know the ending but the story progresses a very different way.
We follow Hannah Swensen, the local baker who owns the cookie jar. After finding her high school friend shot dead behind her shop, she starts working with her brother-in-law to find the murderer. Meanwhile, her mother, Delores, is still trying to hook her up with every available man in town, including new inhabitant Norman Rhoades, the local dentist.
This is a fun novel that mixes of Murder she wrote and a baking book. This book has 4 recipes in it and if I wasn’t trying to lose weight I would make them as to try them. The characters are well developed and more believable than the movies. Hannah’s family is wacky and loveable even though they are a family that I wouldn’t want to have. I am looking forward to finding these books, though there are currently 22… So it may be a 2nd book post for 5 months. if I decide to read through them quickly.
