Overview

Olivia Greyson is the proud owner of The Gingerbread House--a quaint shop that specializes in all things cookie--and her best friend, Maddie, is her sidekick, baking up scrumptious treats for their parties. But the real-life version of their magnificent gingerbread house is about to crumble to pieces...

Tensions are running high as Chatterley Heights' 250th birthday celebration approaches, and Olivia and Maddie are working feverishly to finish a gingerbread house modeled after the famous Chatterley Mansion. When Paine Chatterley, presumed to be dead, shows up to claim his father's house, the town gossips are driven into a tizzy. And when he refuses to allow visitors to tour the mansion during the celebration, all the preparations seem for naught.

Then Paine is found lifeless in the bathtub, his wife hysterical and their precious heirlooms destroyed. The hidden lives of the prestigious Chatterley family members begin to surface, and Olivia must unravel their dark past. As it turns out, the town's history isn't all that sweet...

this third in the cookie series is better than the first two. livie and maddie are working to put the finishing touches on the big celebration for chatterly heights' 250 anniversary, when paine chatterly and his wife show up in town. not too notable except he is supposed to be dead. it throws a monkey wrench into the party when he refuses to let the town tour the manor house. the town has paid a lot of money to refurbish this place and are miffed. paine is then murdered, and there are many that could have done it. the reasons vary, but all are buried about 30 years in the past. one of the big reasons is the fact that there are valuable cookie cutters missing. livie and maddie are curious and get involved much to the dismay of her boyfriend, police chief del. so, who done it? and why? are there cookie cutters? if so where are they? the mysteries abound in this story. the only way to find out is to read this wonderful story. i'm glad i did!

This series just keeps getting better. I was completely in the dark on the killer & surprised at the twist in the end. I have the next 2 checked out from the library & own the one after. I just love these. Highly recommended & you need not be a cookie cutter enthusiast. These books are, however, a danger to read at night because here it is after midnight & now I really want cookies.
