I devoured this on a plane ride pretty much in one sitting. It was cute and fun, though I‘ll admit I liked it less than the first one as I think Hannah came off meaner and more judgemental in this book which didn‘t fit the cosy mystery vibe that well for me. Still, felt it had to be a pick since I read it in about 3 hours and enjoyed!

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.

It‘s our last day in Estonia and we‘re just sitting in a cafe reading for a bit before heading to the airport. I decided to go right on to the second Hannah Swenson book as I wanted something easy, comforting and page turning to read on the plane. Maybe I feel like this one is more mean spirited than the first one a little? But not so much I‘m not enjoying it

A very short quick read. I thought this prequel would just be a quick background on how things started back in England…but it was actually a full blown mystery, even if a short one. Gemma‘s neighbor on the flight back to England is murdered and Gemma is the lead suspect, so of course she must find the true murderer in order to clear things up.

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 2d

Hello!

I work at my local Waterstones book shop and have the great joy of running our Book Club.

In November our club wants to read a funny book and I‘m at a loss as to what to recommend. I give them a choice of three different books and the group votes for the book.

The books can‘t be too long and preferably not part of a series (unless it‘s maybe the first book?).

I would really appreciate your recommendations in the comments! ❤️

Susanita Perhaps this is a bit cliche, but it had me laughing so much on the subway that folks were looking at me funny. 3d
shortsarahrose It‘s short and considered a classic 3d

I enjoyed this one. Put a little more detail in the #CBBC journal. I love the whole “think outside“ the box aspect of it as well.

Anyway, It will be one I would strongly consider picking up the 2nd book. I do like these characters. (especially the doggies!)

Here‘s the first of the three #bookspinbingo boards I‘m planning for #scarathlon2022! 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!

This is my #teamslaughter board 💀 @TheAromaofBooks @Clwojick

Traci1 I hadn't thought about doing multiple boards, but I think I will. Great idea! 4d
TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! 4d
Clwojick Agreed! I love the extra choices, so I do multiples too! 3d
