"You have got to stop finding dead people, Hannah. People are going to get the wrong impression of you!''

Sugar Cookie Murder is the 6th book in the Hannah Swensen Mystery series by Joanne Fluke. Hannah owns a bakery in Lake Eden, Minnesota. In between baking cupcakes, cookies, pies and all things sugary and delightful, she also has a bad habit of finding dead bodies. In her sixth adventure, Hannah and many other residents of Lake Eden are gathered together for the annual Christmas Buffet. This year, the buffet is also the final test for recipes gathered for the Lake Eden Holiday Buffet Cookbook.

Festivities are in full force when a blizzard hits and Hannah discovers a dead body in the parking lot. It seems Martin Dublinski's new wife, a beautiful girl he married in Las Vegas after a whirlwind 5-day affair, has been stabbed to death with an antique cake knife. Everyone is trapped by the snowstorm at the community center.....and one of them is a murderer.

I love this series. It's cute and fun, plus the recipes are yummy. Sugar Cookie Murder is a fun, quick read. And, the book includes 200 pages of recipes ranging from appetizers, to desserts & even main courses. All the recipes mentioned in the book are included! :)

Hannah is funny and feisty, although I do wish she would make up her mind about her love life. She has been stringing along 2 men for six books now....and I do wish she would just choose one. I have several more Hannah Swensen books on my TBR shelf....I hope that further on in the series she makes up her mind! The love triangle thing is getting a bit old. I do love how Joanne Fluke portrays her small town characters with humor and love. The relationship between Hannah, her sister and her mother is hilarious and touching at the same time.

I do have to suspend all reality when reading most cozy mysteries. If one person continually found dead bodies all the time, I do believe they would find themselves interrogated and arrested, rather than being allowed to help the police with the investigation. But.....it's part of the fun of cozy mysteries to just forget about that fact. Jessica Fletcher found a dead body every week on Murder, She Wrote and nobody batted an eye. So it's ok for Hannah Swensen to discover a body in each of the 21 books in this series. Why not? :) I can ignore it if you can.

The Hannah Swensen series is currently being made into movies by Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Channel. The series of movies is called Murder, She Baked. So far, they have adapted four of the novels: The Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder, The Plum Pudding Murder, Peach Cobbler Murder and Fudge Cupcake Murder. The movies don't follow the book plots completely, but are fun to watch just the same. As always, the books are better than the movies, in my opinion.

There are 20 books in the Hannah Swensen Mystery series, with the 21st, Banana Cream Pie Murder, scheduled for release on Feb 28th, 2017. There is also a collection of recipes, Joanne Fluke's Lake Eden Cookbook. For more information on the author and her books, check out her website here ( )

The Sugar Cookie Murder is the sixth book in the in the popular Hannah Swensen mystery series and the first one in a new subset called a “Hannah Swensen Holiday Mystery”. Hannah is the host of the Lake Eden Christmas buffet party, which is also being used as the test kitchen for her upcoming cookbook. There's a winter storm brewing outside and all the residents of the town are gathering for the party, including Martin Dubinski and his new wife, Brandi Wyen, a Las Vegas dancer. Apparently they were married after knowing each other five hours. It's not long before Hannah finds another dead body, this one stabbed in the back with her mother's antique cake knife.

This book is a slightly different format from the author's previous mysteries. In this one, the mystery takes place in the first half of the book and the second half is comprised of the recipes that will be going into the “fictional” Lake Eden Holiday Buffet Cookbook. If you are a fan of the series, you'll enjoy this one. It has some very humorous sections and of course, it's a cozy series, so the murders are not graphic at all.

It's a bit of festive run to read this time of year. I don't often read cozy mysteries but when I do, I always reach for this well written series. The character are interesting and, if you come from a small town, you'll recognize many of them. I look forward to visiting with Hannah and her friends again next year. ( )

Hannah and her friends are holding a buffet and testing recipes for the new community cook book. An awful snowstorm strands everyone at the center, including the no-longer-flamboyant murder victim and the murderer. It’s not exactly a closed room murder, but it’s close enough. Mike is his usual obnoxious self while investigating the crime, and Hannah, as usual, is a step ahead of him. This is an entertaining and delightful Christmas cozy, but it’s good any time of the year you want to read it. ( )

Hum, a decidedly shorter novel “audio-wise”, compared with previous installments but longer in page count. It turns out, the print version of this installment has 81 appended recipes (considerably more than the average 10 recipes in the earlier installments of the series). It appears that Fluke continues her diligence in providing recipes for all food items mentioned in the stories. Since this one takes place at the Lake Eden holiday buffet, the recipes run the full gamut of appetizers, soups, sides, mains and desserts (for all the foodies out there). Not the best story to read on an empty stomach!

As far as the mystery goes, Fluke has made use of a classic “whodunit” strategy by employing a blizzard to contain the investigation (and the suspects) to the snowbound community hall where the holiday buffet occurs. Once again, this becomes a Swensen "family and friends" investigation, even though the police, in the form of detective Mike Kingston and a couple of constables, are on site. Hannah can be an annoying character as she tends to be driven to action too often by her emotions, not logical thought. I found some of what she gets up to in this installment – fueled by the green eye of jealousy – unappealing as she takes on the antics of a woman who just doesn’t understand when she should back down and let the police handle things. Maybe this appeals to some readers – having the female amateur detective prove she is smarter than her sometimes boyfriend detective Kingston - but that ploy is starting to wear thin with me. It is really the fun supporting cast (sisters Andrea and Michelle, mother Delores, alternate boyfriend Norman Rhodes and other Lake Eden residents) that really help carry the story along.

Overall, an alright story and a really quick read and a perfect if you are looking for a December holiday-themed story to read. ( )
