Mystery Cozy

In this paperback novel of COOKIES AND SCREAM written by Virginia Lowell, you'll find a small hometown with loveable characters that will make this cozy mystery an enjoyable delight. Lowell's mystery is well done and had me guessing from all the possible suspects. With this story being part of A Cookie Cutter Shop Mystery series, you could pick it up and still have enough information that you need to know without reading the others. Like most books in its genre, you have just the right amount of humor, and crime with all the various characters that keep you entertained to the end.

Olivia along with her business partner and friend Maddie, have just been handed the job of helping Greta Oskarson sell her precious antique cookie cutters. However something does not seem right. Ever since Greta has come to town, other people have found out about these cookie cutters before the word got out. Then before Olivia has had a chance to check the value of the cookie cutters and talk selling with the owner, Greta turns up dead leaving Olivia looking for clues. The Sheriff Del Jenkins is out of town leaving Cody in charge and Olivia wonders if he has enough experience to lead the investigation thoroughly. Can she and Maddie find the one responsible before it is too late?

This novel has all the right baked up ingredients for an awesome mystery. There are even recipes in the back of COOKIES AND SCREAM to cook up your own batch of cookies to enjoy as you read. I love how creative Lowell is with the storyline.

COOKIES AND SCREAM by Virginia Lowell will keep you hungry for more. I cannot wait for the next one in this series!
