Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder
Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder | Joanne Fluke
143 posts | 143 read | 4 reading | 45 to read
Joanne Flukes bestselling Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder is coming to Hallmark Movies & Mysteries as Murder She Baked: A Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder Mystery starring Alison Sweeney, Cameron Mathison, Gabriel Hogan and Barbara Niven. Take one amateur sleuth. Mix in some eccentric Minnesota locals. Add a generous dollop of crackling suspense, and you've got the recipe for this delicious new mystery series featuring Hannah Swensen, the red-haired, cookie-baking heroine whose gingersnaps are almost as tart as her mouth and whose penchant for solving crime is definitely stirring things up. Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder Hannah already has her hands full trying to dodge her mother's attempts to marry her off while running The Cookie Jar, Lake Eden's most popular bakery. But once Ron LaSalle, the beloved delivery man from the Cozy Cow Dairy, is found murdered behind her bakery with Hannah's famous Chocolate Chip Crunchies scattered around him, her life just can't get any worse. Determined not to let her cookies get a bad reputation, she sets out to track down a killer. But if she doesn't watch her back, Hannah's sweet life may get burned to a crisp. "A cleverly plotted cozy full of appealing characters and delicious cookie recipes." --Publishers Weekly

I didn‘t read this in October but I have several Christmas reads from this series on my iPad. I figured I should read the first in the series to get introduced to the characters and setting. It held my interest enough to read more.
I don‘t usually read out of order, but I‘m making an exception with this and the Lucy Stone series for #BookedByHoliday reads.

Andrew65 Well done 🎄🎄🎄 Like you I don‘t normally read out of order but got a few Christmas books I will be. 16h

This is a pleasant enough little story. Very quick and light, which is perhaps a little disconcerting for a murder mystery (I'm not used to cozies that are quite this...cozy). Not sure I'll continue with the series, but this was a fun diversion. The included recipes make me want to bake, but I'm skeptical about whether they'd actually turn out well or not.

Pretty spot to wait out my teen's field trip and listen to an audiobook. Lots of surfers and shore birds (and flies). Glad I brought my sun hat!

Team read done and I really enjoyed it. I like a cosy mystery and Hannah is very likeable. Plus this had an extra short story that was very sweet. The recipes included was a lovely touch 4* 51pts for #TeamSlaughter #Scarathlon

Week 3 #scarathlon total for #teamslaughter = 9250
🎉🥳🎃
This week, I read 4 books including our buddy read, which was light and fluffy and fun, if not terribly believable. And loook, I found a Hallmark movie for it! Maybe I‘ll have to watch it 🤔 #spookoween

TheSpineView Well done 1mo

I enjoyed Hanna‘s sarcastic demeanor, and who doesn‘t love a cookie bakery & a moody cat, but it honestly felt like a generic cozy. Strong setting can make a cozy stand out, but descriptions of Lake Eden weren‘t particularly vivid or memorable. Narrator was good. #3stars #teamread #mystery #scarathalon22 #TeamSlaughter #31by31

I didn‘t love the main character in this series, but I liked the mystery and the conclusion. Amateur sleuths in these types of books can be so judgmental when they‘re solving crimes, you know? 🤣

I originally had planned to read the Karin Slaughter book, but it turns out I had already read it, so I thought I'd try this one for the team read and I really liked it! I've already read the second book, and I plan on continuing. #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter @Clwojick

Okay, so I went a liiiiiiiittle bit overboard with the #wordsearch #game for #Scarathlon2022 this week 😁
I spent hours and hours poring over countless dictionaries, whenever I read a book words that fit jumped at me; it took me ages to find sleep because I mulled over the word lists...

Yuki_Onna ... Continued -
Don't worry, that sounds worse than it was - if you didn't notice already - I tend to obsess over word search games! 😊😂
They're my absolute favourite and I had a blast this week!✌️
Be assured I double and triple checked my results before the final check-in!!!

🥳Checking in at 1353 found words from this week's word search for #TeamSlaughter 🥳

Using a #TeamSlaughter #BuddyRead for the #ScarathlonDailyPrompts #PhotoChallenge for Day 7: #Victim. I have yet to read this one, but the synopsis states one of our MC‘s customers is found murdered behind her bakery amidst her chocolate chip cookies and she decides to investigate!

An enjoyable but slow cozy mystery this one. Dairy delivery guy without an enemy in the world is shot behind the MC‘s cookie shop. Doofus of a detective gets the cookie shop owner to pretty much do all the work to solve the murder. Cookie shop owner apparently has a perfect IQ because she knows everything and her 4–year-old niece talks like she‘s 30. So I suspended reality a lot, but I enjoyed the mystery. #teamslaughter #buddyread #scarathlon

Lynnsoprano Perfect description of this book 😄 I read one more out of this series and decided it was just too unrealistic. Plus, the recipes have way too much butter for my diet 😂 2mo

I enjoyed our #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter #TeamBook. It was a cute cozy mystery with yummy cookie recipes. I listened on audio, but think that I might actually have preferred to read it, as the voices the narrator used didn‘t mesh well with my mental image of the characters.

Finished listening to the team read. This is the second book in the series I‘ve read and I found them both to be on the slow side. Also, the MC is supposed to be in her twenties but seems more like a middle aged woman. (Maybe because they were first published before cell phones and such?) #teamslaughter #scarathlon @Clwojick

Roary47 I agree that she seems older than she is suppose to be. 2mo

This was somewhere between so-so and a pick, so I'll be generous and round up to a pick. I have a question for people who have read more in this series; I'll put that below in the comments with a spoiler tag.

#TeamSlaughter #buddyread #Scarathlon2022 @clwojick

gossamerchild I forgot to mention I found 109 words, so I get 1090 points for #wordsearch.

So, if you've read more in this series, does the implied love triangle turn into anything, or is she a reasonable human being and focus on one person at a time? I know this book is fairly old, so it wouldn't surprise me if there was an ongoing love triangle, but that would be enough to make me NOT read anymore of the series. I would also be okay with a poly relationship.
2mo
CogsOfEncouragement I read this a few years ago, gave it 3 stars but thought it was a little too boring to continue with the series. For Team Slaughter I‘m being a good sport though and giving it another go. I skipped to book five which is set at Halloween (Fudge Cupcake Murder). Hannah is still torn between Norman and Mike, and apparently still casually dating both. I‘m not halfway through yet: Norman is out of town, and a dead body cancelled a date with Mike. 2mo
gossamerchild @CogsOfEncouragement thank you! That saves me some irritation :-D It's funny to me how dated this book was, considering it's only 22 years old. I think I will hold off on continuing the series then. 2mo
CogsOfEncouragement Yeah. I‘m halfway through now and bored with this writing again. My mom really likes this book series though, so it pleases some people. I mean obviously, Fluke has published over 25 Hannah Swenson mysteries, people are buying it. 2mo

Really enjoyable book! A lovely little appetite-whetter for #scarathlon2022 as well. I found this cosy and fun, with just a few bits that made me roll my eyes too much or disagree with the MC too hard. It‘s exactly what I expected and it fitted the vibe for getting into autumn reading with a cosy murder mystery set in a cookie shop perfectly.

Reading some more of chocolate chip cookie murder in an Estonian bar while my bf naps before dinner - it‘s our last night on holiday! I‘m also half watching this football game and trying to work out what teams or countries are playing while a soft 90s playlist with lots of Radiohead and Cranberries plays - unusual bar vibe but I love it. I‘m really loving the tagged book, the #teamslaughter buddy read working great for ppl like me who…

Emilymdxn Don‘t get along well with Karin Slaughter. I‘ve tried a few of hers and just didn‘t like them so I‘m going cosy this year for #scarathlon2022. Highly recommend if you‘re considering it for October - exactly what you expect and want from a cosy mystery set in a cookie shop 2mo

I love Scarathlon so much I‘ve made an iPad notebook for planning and tracking, and I‘m gonna do one team theme bingo board and one more general halloweeny, one more autumnal cosy. I doubt I‘ll get a whole line of any of them but I craved the choice lol!

So I‘ll admit I caved and started reading the #teamslaughter buddy read early because it looked so damn cosy and I felt like I needed it. I got a deal on kindle for I think 5 books in the series so I‘ll read a later one in October for the buddy read points. I‘m alternative this and complicated archaeology masters reading while it pours wirh rain in Vilnius rn! Very atmospheric #scarathlon2022 @Clwojick
