It’s a picture postcard December in Minnesota. Pristine white snow is glistening in the winter sunlight, and Main Street is brimming with festive holiday decorations. Best of all, it’s the day Hannah’s mother, Delores Swensen, is holding her annual Holiday Cookie Exchange at the Community Centre – catered by none other than The Cookie Jar! The whole Swensen clan, their friends, and members of “The Lake Eden Gossip Hotline”, of which Delores is a founding member, have gathered for the delicious event. And as they share their favourite juicy tales of Lake Eden and its residents over coffee and dessert, they also share their favourite scrumptious cookie recipes – plus a mouth-watering menu of luncheon recipes…plus all the recipes from Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder to Carrot Cake Murder. Whether this is your first taste of Lake Eden, or you’re back for another helping, you can now bring the irresistible flavours of The Cookie Jar into your very own kitchen.
This book was full of fab recipes for every occasion along with some stories about cooking and mishaps and of course the men of Lake Eden appear at the end. The next book Cinnamon Roll Murder should definitely be interesting with Norman’s predicament. Can’t wait to read it!
