Aug. 11 2010 Wheeler Cozy Mystery
A New York Times Bestselling Author -- Hannah Swensen is set to bake up a storm at The Cookie Jar for Lake Eden, Minnesota's annual Winter Carnival. Too bad the honor of creating the official Winter Carnival cake went to lifestyle maven Connie Mac.

But then Hannah finds the bossy, bad-tempered "Cooking Sweetheart" dead -- after eating one of her muffins.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In her third top-of-the-line culinary cozy (after 2001's Strawberry Shortcake Murder), the delightful amateur sleuth Hannah Swensen once again faces murder and mayhem with good cheer. To fight the late February doldrums, Lake Eden, Minn., is about to celebrate its first winter carnival with ice sports on the lake, activities for children and Hannah's delicious cookies from her shop, the Cookie Jar. The whole town is involved, and even Hannah's mother, who usually spends her time trying to get Hannah married, has found a new interest in recreating the home of one of Lake Eden's founding fathers. Connie MacIntyre, bestselling cook book author and star of a popular cable TV cooking show, has agreed to make the cake for the carnival banquet. But when Hannah discovers Connie's dead body in the pantry of the Cookie Jar, Hannah and her sister Andrea join forces to track down the killer, despite warnings by one of her boyfriends, policeman Mike Kensington, to stay out of the investigation. Since everyone who had contact with the abusive Connie disliked her, the sisters have plenty of suspects. Delicious food descriptions and recipes, warm and familiar characters who grow into real people (Hannah's increasing respect for Andrea is a highlight), a vivid picture of the small lake town and a well-crafted mystery provide the ingredients for yet another tempting feast that should satisfy all fans, old and new. (Mar. 5)Forecast: A simple, bold jacket featuring a skull formed by blueberries in a sliced muffin sends just the right message to attract cozy fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars another fun read April 22 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lake Eden, Minn. is celebrating its first winter carnival. There are sports and activities for the children including hot chocolate and cookies from Hannah's shop, The Cookie Jar. Connie Mac the celebrity cook is coming also.

The mayor charges Hannah to escort Connie Mac around town but Hannah sees a whole other side to the 'sweet on TV' star. She is condescending, conniving and downright nasty. And she is found dead right in Hannah's kitchen! Since she was abusive to almost all of her staff there are a lot of suspects.

Hannah's mother seems to be kept busy in this book recreating an historic home instead of trying to marry Hannah off. Hannah gets to spend more time with her sister and the development of their relationship is wonderful.

Another cozy mystery which was a nice comfy read

5.0 out of 5 stars Blueberry Muffin Murder March 25 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Hannah Swensen, tart-talking and red-haired baker at the successful desserts bakery The Cookie Jar in small town Lake Eden, Minnesota, starts up the amateur sleuthing once again as another vicious murder makes the whole town's gossip hotlines explode for the third time.
All the residents of little Lake Eden, Minnesota, are pitching in to help prepare for a spectacular annual celebration event: The Winter Carnival. Hannah is especially excited about the Winter Carnival because she has been chosen by the Lake Eden residents the honor of baking the enormous and delicious Winter Carnival Cake, which everyone will feast upon once the Prince and Princess of Winter are elected.
But then Hannah's mood changes from intense happiness to intense anger, when Connie McIntyre, otherwise known as Connie Mac, "America's Cooking Sweetheart," is instead picked to bake the Winter Carnival Cake. Connie Mac is well-known amongst everyone for her fancy yet expensive cooking appliances boutiques, best-selling cookbooks, and sky-high-rated cable TV show, "Cooking with Connie Mac." Hannah's angry about the whole Connie Mac ordeal, because she thinks that if Connie Mac bakes the cake, then it will be just like the rest of the sugary delicacies she makes on her shows---pretty and delicate, but likely to leave a dull taste in your mouth.
And as it turns out, no one else who personally knows Connie Mac likes her, either. Connie Mac is rude, pushy, self-absorbed, materialistic, and downright domineering to everyone in her presence. She coerces or sweet-talks people to get what she wants, and what she wants is always something hard to get. Even worse, Hannah's hatred for Connie Mac deepens when Connie Mac forces Hannah to let her use The Cookie Jar to bake the Winter Carnival Cake.

3.0 out of 5 stars WORST BOOK OF THE SERIES Dec 13 2005
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read the whole series and this one was my least favourite book. It dragged and the worst part was the who the murderer was and the reason for the murder - it was so stupid it made me mad.
However I would still recommend that people read it because: the rest of the books in the series are good and because the books are sequential, so in order to follow what is going on in the characters' lives in the next book, one should ideally read this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Third Great Book in the Series... March 14 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
There are some mystery series that although cozy, just get boring after awhile. The Joanne Fluke series are NOT of this genre.
I personally love the dialogue and the characters. Hannah Swensen doesn't seem to me to "order any of the other characters around" and in fact it seems as though she often has to walk a fine line between dodging her mother and her sister. I do think that the men in her life and how THEY feel could be a little more developed, but this is a really cute series.
In "Blueberry Muffin Murder," Connie Mac (who HAD to be based on a "Martha Stewart" type) comes into town and the fun begins.
I do think that this series would probably appeal more to women than to most "career driven macho men." Although, anyone who likes to cook would probably really like this series as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully Delicious Feb. 14 2004
By S. Vogt
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This author has a way with words, and ingredients. Along with a tasty read with satisfying characters, each of her books contain at least 5 recipes. This one happens to include recipes for Blueberry Muffins, Peanut Butter Melts, Twin Chocolate Delights, Little Snowballs, Grilled Cream Cheese Sandwiches, Lisa's White Chocolate Supremes, Short Stack Cookes, and Multiple-Choice Bar Cookies. These recipies aren't ficticious. I've tried a few and they are absolutely delectible!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Darling Story Dec 3 2003
By apoem
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first book I have read by this author and now I'm looking forward to reading others by the same author.
Hannah is the local cookie chef of a small town. She seems to find dead bodies where she lives, works, and visits. In this book a body of a famous chef shows up in her cookie shop. In order to get back into her store and make a living, Hannah ends up working on the case. She dates two men, one a cop and another a dentist, while she manages to keep her business running, solve several murders and save herself from a deadly ending.
The book is fairly fast paced. It is a fun book and the characters are fairly believable once you get past the idea that cops might possibly share ongoing investigation information with a mere citizen. Hannah's mother is a character that adds some light hearted moments to the book.
I enjoyed this book and look forward to buying more by this same author.

What a great "cozy". I snuggle down in bed and read it in one evening. The only problem is that I crave sweets as I read. :o)
