Good story from the get go. A nice, easy, enjoyable read.

For some reason I was very hesitant about buying this book . But after reading it I see what a mistake it would have been to have deprived myself the pleasure of an excellent new read. Without giving away any secrets I would just suggest buying it for yourself & see it you don't agree that this is a great book to spent a quiet night or two curled up reading. I am looking forward to more adventures with the characters in the next Cookie Dough mystery series. I know now I will not hesitate to buy & read #2 in this suspenseful [& delicious] new series.

The book quickly goes to the announcement of the discovery of Livie's dear friend and mentor Clarisse Chamberlain, wealthy business woman and a pillar of the community. Sheriff Delroy Jenkins tells her it was either a suicide or accidental overdose. Something Livie has a hard time accepting. The more she learns the more she is convinced Clarisse was murdered. Livie recieves a letter that convinces her more than ever something was going on in Clarisse's life that may have led to her death. She and Maddie begin investigating on their own, much to the consternation of the sheriff. They interview many of the town's people covertly and check the alibi's of each of her prime suspects. Follow along as Livie and Maddie make cookies, sell new and antique cookie cutters and investigate murder on the side.

Definitely a cozy with appealing characters, but really, a cookie cutter shop in a small town?

In this first book in a new cozy mystery series, Olivia owns a shop called The Gingerbread House which sells cookies, cookie cutters, and specialty bakeware. The store is on the ground floor of a restored old Victorian in the downtown area of a small town in Maryland. Olivia and her small Yorkshire pup, Spunky, live upstairs. The book opens with the death of Olivia's friend and business mentor, Clarisse Chamberlain, apparently an accidental overdose of sleeping pills that were dissolved into a bottle of wine. Olivia is suspicious about this accident from the beginning, and slowly the true story begins to unfold. I found this to be a light, enjoyable entry into the crowded cozy field. It seems that I am reading a lot of series firsts lately. Nevertheless, I liked Olivia and her best friend Maddie, and the cookie and cookie cutter theme was different. The mystery was nicely plotted and there were some elements, like the will reading, and the gathering at the end of the novel, that reminded me of the old mystery classics. I would have liked a little more on the setting, however, as these details were fairly sparse.

The story of Olivia Greyson, owner of a Cookie Cutter store and the death of a very close freind. I found the characters to be well formed and the story moved along with a very good pace.I am hoping this new author writes more in with these characters.

This first in the Cookie Cutter Shop Mysteries series is a bit rough and slow-going, but kept me vaguely entertained until the ending. The story is certainly nothing new, centering around family rivalry and will money. Good enough to keep you entertained for a little while, but I found myself rolling my eyes at the "cookie cutter" characters. The craziest thing her Olivia's "crazy" friend does is color her cookies with outragious icing. This story needed to be faster paced and the characters needed a few more quirks to be truely as quirky as the author describes them. Verdict: meh.

I have no idea why the reviews for this book are so high. I love cozy novels, but I just could not get into this one. The writing itself was bad, the story was poorly told and seemed to randomly jump around, the pacing was slow, the killer(s) (no spoilers) seemed obvious, etc....I had really high hopes for this book based off of all of the reviews, but it was a let down.
