Summary

In this batch of sweet, short murder mysteries, three cooks don’t spoil the broth.
New York Times best-selling author Joanne Fluke pens the title story, in which a box of Hannah Swensen’s gingerbread cookies is found near the corpse of her neighbor.
Popular co-authors Laura Levine and Leslie Meier offer “The Dangers of Gingerbread Cookies” and “Gingerbread Cookies and Gunshots”, respectively.
Together, these three cozies will entertain listeners while compelling them to think twice about a cherished holiday treat.

Critic reviews

"Fluke, Levine, and Meier each offer a yuletide whodunit treat.... In Fluke's wry "Gingerbread Cookie Murder," Hannah Swensen of the Cookie Jar in Lake Eden, Minn., wants her neighbor Ernie Kusak to simply lower the volume on his too loud Christmas outdoor display, but she soon discovers Ernie with his head bashed in. In Levine's hilarious "The Dangers of Gingerbread Cookies," Jaine Austen's holiday stay at her parents' home in the Tampa Vistas retirement community is enlivened by the murder of elderly lothario Dr. Preston McCay, whose neck gets broken during his star turn in an amateur play called The Gingerbread Cookie That Saved Christmas. Rounding out the volume is Meier's less cheery but poignant "Gingerbread Cookies and Gunshots," about Maine reporter Lucy Stone's investigation of a four-year-old boy's disappearance."

GingerBread Cookie Murder

Don't waste your time or money on this one. So short, and not of the quality of her other work. Then the other two books are not up to the quality of Fluke. So sorry I wasted my money and a credit on this book.

Jaine Austen holiday fun

This is a review for the Jaine Austen cozy mystery by Laura Levine only.

This short story lasted around 3.5 hours. It included all the things us fans of the series have come to love - humor, a puzzling mystery, and naughty Prozac the cat!

Usually in Jaine's mysteries there are plenty of side stories - her friends' problems, dating, her parents etc. Because this is a short story, there was much less of that, and more focus on the mystery. Jaine is staying with her parents, so we get to see her infamous daddy up close. His battle with the Christmas tree is not to be missed haha!! This story will make you laugh out loud - and it ends with a great twist!

My only complaint is the narrator. She is not the worst, but she's not the one who usually does these stories either. Brittany Pressley is a fantastic narrator - so if you enjoy this story but not the narrator, check out the other stories in this series! The narrator of this one (not Pressley) pauses long and awkwardly and many of the voices sound the same.
