The theme for December is Baking Bedlam!
The book for this month is Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder (2000) by Joanne Fluke.
The first book in this series focuses on Hannah Swensen, a “dessert-baking, red-haired heroine whose gingersnaps are as tart as her comebacks, and whose penchant for solving crimes one delicious clue at a time has made her a bestselling favorite.” Hannah is busy attempting to run The Cookie Jar bakery and dodging her mother’s matchmaking attempts, when a beloved delivery man is found murdered just behind her shop covered in Hannah’s famous Chocolate Chip Crunchies. Do Hannah’s cookies actually have anything to do with the murder? There’s only one way to find out!
