made me want to get in the kitchen, do some baking and eat some cookies!! too many characters and too mushy for me!!! ( )

Read this one in a single day. It was a quick and reasonably entertaining read. It's the story of 12 (mostly middle-aged) girlfriends who gather annually for a Christmas cookie exchange, and it tells each individual's tale, with all the triumph, failure, joy, and tragedy that accompanies life. Interspersed with the story are recipes for the cookies as well as little essays about certain common baking ingredients. The recipes and essays were the highlight of the book for me. I'm going to copy some of them before passing the book along.

This book has me thinking about starting my own cookie exchange. I have lost touch with a lot of friends and this would be a nice way of guaranteeing we would see each other at least once a year! ( )

Note to self: if Heather says don't bother, don't bother. I could have read a good and trashy holiday romance book instead and been perfectly happy! ( )

This is the story of 12 women and how their life intersect and change. The Cookie Club is a big part of them. It's something to look forward to and plan on. ( )

This novel is about a group of women who gather once a year for an annual cookie exchange. Each of the 12 chapters focuses on one of the attendees, telling of past or recent events that made her the person she is now. Each chapter also has a cookie recipe, and between the chapters are interesting bits of the history or chemistry of various baking ingredients.

I admit to being a bit bored by this book. While there are some interesting characters with interesting pasts, nothing much "happens" in the course of the book. The big conflict or mystery is that the party hostess is anxiously awaiting medical news from a family member. I could have set this book down at any point and been completely free of the "what will happen next?" feeling. ( )
