Gingerbread Cookie Murder by Leslie Meir, Joanna Fluke, and Laura Levine
ISBN: 9780758234957

I was looking for a little light reading with some holiday spirit while browsing my local bookstore and came across this wonderful collection of cozy mysteries. There are three stories- Gingerbread Cookie Murder by Leslie Meier, The Dangers of Gingerbread Cookies by Joanna Fluke, and Gingerbread Cookies and Gunshots by Laura Levine- all of them Christmas-themed. All of the stories feature series characters by the authors, but stand-alone very well.

Having a toddler I don’t have a large chunk of time to read and I felt these novellas were perfect for reading one story each night. My favorite story of the three was Gingerbread Cookie Murder. Hannah Swenson made me laugh out loud and the story included recipes. I have plans to try baking these recipes.

Although the characters in each of these stories were free-spirited and very curious, the mysteries were also well written. I found it hard to put the book down before I had finished reading a story. These novellas would be good for those planning to travel this holiday season or someone in search of a quick, lighthearted read. Next on my reading list is to read each of the series featured in this book. Recommended by Danielle Allison
