Book Description

Sept. 6 2010
The Cookie Jar's busiest time of the year also happens to be the most wonderful time...for Christmas cookies, Hannah's own special plum pudding - and romance! Holiday orders are high, and Hannah's slated to provide dessert at the Reverend Knudsen's upcoming nuptials. She's busy as can be and loving it. She also gets a kick out of 'Lunatic Larry Jaeger's Crazy Elf Christmas Tree Lot', a kitschy carnival taking place smack-dab in the middle of the village green. Larry thinks he's crazy like a fox with his wild business schemes, but this time, the entrepreneur may have bitten off more than he can chew. Rumour has it that Larry's in the red - an idea that takes a sinister turn when Hannah discovers the man himself dead as a doornail in his own office...It seems quite a few people would have liked to fill Larry's stocking with coal and then bash him with it - including his bitter ex-wife, his ex-partner's daughter, a woman he was wooing, and the Crazy Elf Tree lot's extremely exasperated investors...Now, with so many suspects to investigate and the twelve days of Christmas ticking away, Hannah's running out of time to nab a murderous Scrooge who doesn't want her to see the New Year.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good recipes, familiar characters: Maybe too familiar? Oct. 18 2009
By Trixie Belle - Published on
The book starts out with a murder, and then backtracks to the day before a man was shot to a scene at The Cookie Jar. Hannah is selling cookies to the local Christmas tree lot for the holidays, and she and her partner, Lisa, are busy baking cookies, and preparing for the holidays. Hannah's Mom is wondering why her partner in the antique business has been cancelling so many social outings. Norman is helping Hannah put her first Christmas tree in the condo. Mike is worrying about some suspicions he has over local citizens at the tri-state mall. Andrea is selling houses and keeping her precocious daughter, Tracy, busy. The plot thickens when it becomes obvious that a local business owner may have been cheating several of the town's citizens. Norman is helpful, kind and sweet, and Mike shows up for handouts of food late at night. Mike's dalliances with other women are brought up by Hannah and then dismissed. Hannah continues to date both men, and I found myself wanting Norman to dump her. He deserves a woman who appreciates his care for her, and Hannah seems to be attracted to the bad boys. The end of the book brings yet another former suitor into the pictures. I like the myseteries, but Hannah's indecision in the romance department makes her look insensitive or not that bright.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Christmas Tree Lots are Deadly in Lake Eden Oct. 1 2009
By Mark Baker - Published on
Its 10 shopping days until Christmas, and things are hopping in The Cookie Jar. Hannah has her hands full keeping the shop's regular customers in cookies plus holiday party catering. To top it off, the shop is providing the cookies for the Crazy Elf Christmas Tree Lot. Located in the center of town, it not only sells trees, but stand, ornaments, and toys. Heck, it even has some rides for all to enjoy.

But when Hannah stops by one night to pick up a check, she finds Larry Jaeger, the owner, shot dead in Elf Headquarters (aka the trailer he was living in on site). And the secrets begin pouring out as Hannah finds motives in some surprising places. Who actually committed the murder?

We've got another entry that will please fans. The early part is a little heavy on the sub-plots, but once the murder plot gets going, all three blend together quite well. I had the killer figured out before Hannah did, but only a chapter or two. And the ending will definitely have you coming back to see what happens next.

The characters continue to be their charming selves. I love spending time with them and get excited as each new book comes out.

Can't leave out the delicious recipes, either. There are a ton of them this time, including recipes for a complete Christmas Eve dinner.

Yes, the series is extremely light and cozy. But that is part of the charm for me. If you are looking for an enjoyable Christmas mystery, this one will be perfect for you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous Jan. 7 2010
By M. Mccormick - Published on
This series is going nowhere. I really thought after the last book that Hannah would drop Mike after finding out about his relationship with another woman. I cannot get past the fact that she has no self respect. Any man or woman who is not honnest about their extracuricular activities is bad enough but what is pitiful is the person who takes them back and pretends nothing has changed in their relationship.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok enough already! June 18 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I really want to give glowing 5 star reviews to all of the books in the series, but I am so beyond bored with it all. I keep buying the books and keep reading them because I feel a real connection to the characters and the town but I feel like Mrs. Fluke is having trouble coming up with a real plot so she uses useless fluff to take up space. There are so many mundane things that are explained in excruciating detail that have absolutely no baring on anything in the book, yet it happens over and over again. I am really tired of Hannah's physical appearance being thrown in over and over again. Ok I get it, she's a little chubby, less than graceful and has frizzy hair. Why oh why does this need to be shoved in our faces over and over? Obviously she has some redeeming qualities to have 2 men fighting over her. And really she needs to just get on with picking one. I get that everyone wants her to be with Mike the exciting bad boy cop and that Norman is boring but sweet but really? Get on with it! I really dislike that it seems that Hannah is never good enough for her mother or sister or even sometimes boyfriend Mike until she is needed to solve yet another murder. In a town that small, how many people can die and no one really find and issue with it? Sadly, I may have to really pass on any more books in the series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Plum Done with this Ridiculous Series!!! Jan. 21 2010
By Liz the - Published on
I really liked this series when it began. I didn't even mind the whole Norman/Mike thing in the beginning....but that was 12 books ago, enough already!!! I couldn't even finish this book. The dialog has become beyond weird. It is forced and stiff. I can't stand the Norman/Mike thing now. How old is Hannah exactly? Grown enough to know what love is and that she should pick one of these men, or not. I mean really what 40yr old woman actually wants to sleep alone at night?? The cat isn't keeping her that warm ;)

I wish this series to be over. I understand light and cozy but you are reading the same book over and over again! Just changing who/where and with what in which the murder took place!! PLEASE DEVELOP YOUR CHARACTER A LITTLE MORE MS.FLUKE. At least the other characters are a bit more entertaining and even more realistic. Maybe Hannah should be hit by a bus. Then Mike and Norman could mourn their loss while Andrea steps in to take over the cookie shop.
