I was disappointed that this did not have all the recipes mentioned in her previous books but that would have been handy but I'm glad to get more! I was originally scared off buying this book from the previous reviews but went ahead and bought it becuase I didn't want to miss any interactions between Norman, Mike and Hannah. If you're worried like I was - don't be. There's only about 6 pages of "story" line in the whole book.

I'm still pleased that this book continues with her simple recipe explanations and tasty recipes. Good buy if you want to cook cool and interesting foods.

I thought the book was to contain all the recipes from the series, including new ones. Many of my favourite recipes were missing. The variety, and amount of recipes, from the 'Christmas Cookie Murder' book had more to it, than this book. I wish I would have looked through the book, befor buying. I would not have bought the book. I wouldn't even give it away to a friend, since I don't like short changing my friends. I'm extremely disappointed!

    What happened to ALL the recipes?

    I would have preferred more recipes and less story. The author's website said that the upcoming book would include ALL the recipes listed there - along with some new ones. It's nice to have the new ones, but I was hoping for the rest of those that were previously published. Having them all in one book would be handy. If I had seen this book in the store instead of ordering online, I might not have made the purchase. Also, Ms. Fluke should stop talking down to us in her instructions. I would think that most of us enjoy this series because of the recipes (let's face it, there are better mysteries out there) and we don't need such simplified directions. By the way, for an author who takes pride in her character's language skills, she should know that Monterey jack only has one "R" in it.

    Cookbook

    Pretty good but it was more a beginners cookbook than a novel.
