I cannot get enough of the Cookies & Chance Mystery series by Catherine Bruns and I cannot stress enough that YOU have got to read them !!! There is so much to love in this series .... from the people to the storylines to the murders to the relationships to the quirkiness of Gramma Rosa !!! As I've said before when I've discussed this series reading these books is more than the story ... you are part of a family !!! You will completely fall in love with Sally and her new husband Mike as well as her loving Gramma Rosa, crazy parents, down-to-earth sister Gianna, and her best friend and partner Josie. And the relationships among them all is just plain AWESOME to read !! Everytime you finish reading one of the books in this series you are left with so much. Even though you close the book and put it back on the shelf, you won't be able to forget about the devotion, strength, courage and funniness surrounding the Muccio/Donovan family. It always amazes me the talent and imagination that authors have when I read their books. And some authors stand out a little more .... Catherine Bruns is on a level all of her own !!! I mean come on !!! You have Sally and Josie running a cookie shop that is best known because the customers get a free fortune cookie and some times these fortunes guide the story. And then there are Sally's parents....her father has this infatuation with death and everything that surrounds it to the point that there is a coffin in the living room !!! And Sally's mom dressing and acting like a hot teenager but what can ya say she looks the part !! And Gramma Rosa who always knows what to say even if she messes up the sayings (for example - you can't judge a book by it's picture). And the only "normal' member in the family is her younger sister Gianna who is a lawyer....but wait she's dating the grandson of their neighbor Mrs. Gavelli who hates Sally. You don't even need a murder to solve when all this other stuff is going on but it does add spice to the mix.... But when you are reading the books, this is all normal and understandable and completely acceptable but mostly off the chart entertaining !!!! If you read any of these books and you are not moved by the author and the stories, I don't know what to say..... Maybe read it again ? Although reading them again isn't such a crazy idea.......

I was blessed to receive an advanced copy. Now I am not the type of person who tells what the story is about. BUT... I will say that it does not disappoint and the ending was a surprise! Catherine's style of writing just plain flows and you'll find it hard to put down. It is easy to love her characters and be prepared to laugh out loud. Another thing, you don't have to have read the previous books in the series to enjoy this one. It stands alone. I loved it so much, I bought the Nook copy too! I wanted to add something about Catherine's books. They stand up to being read more than once. Some books, you never want to read again. Hers you will. The opinion is my own. I've purchased all of her previous books and as you can tell, she is one of my favorite authors.
