3.5 Stars You know when you sometimes read a book with a specific theme that you wouldn't really paid mind to other time and then you find yourself hopping on over to the internet just to google your curiosity? Well that's what this book did to me. Cookies and Scream is a 5th book in the A Cookie Cutter Shop Mystery. I haven't read the previous installments in this series but had no problem just jumping into Olivia Greyson's life and picking up the pieces along the way. Olivia owns a cookie store called The Gingerbread House (how cute is that name?) along with her best friend Maddie, who is also her sidekick and helps her around the kitchen. When they get offered to sell a stunning prized antique cookie cutter collection, they get more then they bargained for when it's owned turned up dead. Now they jump head first into trying to prove that Greta was actually murdered, as they dig into her old life and world filled with mysteries, glamor and some painful past. Fun story. I enjoyed all the buildup that the author did before the murder. Seriously, it took like over 100 pages before the murder and the story was well done leading up to it and the aftermath as well. I liked Olivia and Maddie, they make a great due. Where Olivia lacks, Maddie picks it up. A bit more open, spunky and a quick thinker. The cookie cutters was the thing that had me browsing the internet with curiosity. I didn't know how many different antique cookie cutters there can be out there and how some very rare ones have been sold for a lot of money. It was fascinating the thing that interests some people and collectors. I love finding stuff like this that I wouldn't have otherwise if I haven't had read the book. Lowell is great at storytelling and she has build a world of very enjoyable characters. especially with such a fun duo of Olivia and Maddie. I enjoyed following them around as they stumbled through trying to crack the secrets and what really happened to Greta that night. Cookies and Scream

Cookies and Scream is the fifth book in the A Cookie Cutter Shop Mystery series. Olivia returns from vacation and the next day a friend, Constance, calls to explain the antique cookie cutters that are in her wall safe. Greta Oskarson has decided to move back to Chatterly Heights and has asked Constance to hold her cookie cutter collection until Olivia returns and meeting can be arranged with Olivia to discuss the sale of Greta's collection. Greta has been living in Europe and has had several husbands who most, if not all, have died from questionable circumstances. Before Olivia has a chance to start selling off the cutters, she gets a call from Greta saying she's having breathing problems and asks for help. Shortly after arriving at the hospital, Greta dies and the cause of death is tentatively listed as a heart attack. Olivia and a doctor aren't so sure, so with help of Maddie they start looking into Greta's past. Olivia and Maddie once again have wonderful cast of characters to fill in the void when they are out sleuthing. Bertha is back with her light hearted way and is busy keeping shop organized, as is her dear friend Mr. Willard. Ellie, Olivia's mother is back with her usual motherly advice. Then ever the thorn in Olivia side, are Binnie and Ned, reporter and photographer for the local paper. Del, Olivia's romantic interest is out of town, dealing with his ex wife. Can't forget Spunky, Olivia's adorable Yorkie. The official "meeter and greeter" at The Gingerbread House. Looking forward to the next book in the series

Finding antique cookie cutters in her safe send Olivia and Mattie on another adventure and of course solving another murder. Keeps your interest and keeps you reading!

I love this series! What could be more fun than owning an "everything" cookie shop. with the "everything" including fresh baked cookies from Maddie, who is best friend of the main character, Olivia. Several years ago Olivia inherited amazing collection of cookie cutters. Now she has been offered more, but before that deal is done, the donor ends up dead. Join Olivia and Maddie as they set out to discover who the murderer is.
