I like this writer and I like the stories but sometimes I feel like this series is set in 1950. (But its not) Ok, here's what I don't get. Hannah Swensen is 29 years old and is dating 2 men. She and her family are always talking about "which one will propose and who will she marry". But she's not sleeping with either one. Who thinks someone is going to propose when you are 1) not sleeping with them and 2) are dating someone else? Even if I can get around #1 who keeps dating someone else when the relationship is getting serious enough to talk about marriage? Also, at one point Hannah says she isn't sure her sister, Andrea, is ok with "inter-cultural dating". Like, what? Excuse me? Did she just say her sister is a huge racist? What is that even about?

Previous comments of "easy" and "cheesy" sum it up well :-) It's not bad at all, it's certainly not literature, it's just the thing if you're in the mood for this sort of thing. I did not try any recipes.

This is a series of books that centre around Hannah who is a baker. The stories are about murder, however, it is very light. Alot of humor. And the best part is, you get all kinds of cookie recipes, many of them I have tried and are really good. The endings are usually a little cheesy, but still worth the read.

A light mystery with several recipes, mostly of cookies with lots of butter. Hannah Swensen owns The Cookie Jar in a small town in Minnesota, and she helps her boyfriend Mike solve a murder. Humor is provided by her mother's efforts to get her married and by her battle with her cat over a down pillow. Plot is well done, and the small town atmosphere is delightful. This is the first I've read of this series, and I'll read another when I'm in the mood for something easy.
