This was a collection of three holiday themed cozy mysteries from different authors.  One author I had read and enjoyed previously and two new authors.  Each mystery revolved around a gingerbread cookie theme and were the usual cozy reads that I enjoyed very much.  The best story in the lot, IMO, was The Dangers of Gingerbread Cookies" by Laura Levine.  I had not read any books in the Jaine Austen series before but definitely will find others.  The story was hilarious because of Jaine's parents.  Her family dynamic was similar to my own and the antics of her parents reminded me of the antics of my own parents. I really enjoyed reading all three stories, but that one bumped my rating up to four stars." ( )

I originally checked this book out believing it was another in J. Fluke's series. This book, however, is a compliation of 3 author's works revolving around both gingerbread and Christmas. This is a good light read for the holidays. ( )

I was still in love with Hannah at this point. Being trapped in a snow storm and trying to find a murder is not an original plot. ( )

Gingerbread Cookie Murder proved to be a fun, holiday read that I really enjoyed. I have to admit that before I read this book I was only familiar with Fluke's Hannah Swensen series so the other two series were new to me. Fluke delivered another great mystery full of the humor, mystery, hint of romance, and mentions of some tasteful treats. I really enjoyed "Gingerbread Cookie Murder" finding it another delightful addition to the series. "The Dangers of Gingerbread Cookies" was a fun and great introduction to Levine's Jaine Austen series. Levine does a great job at combining humor, mystery, and family fun when Jaine visits her parents for Christmas and stumbles across a murder. I definitely plan on checking out more books in this series because I can't wait to read more Jaine adventures. "Gingerbread Cookies and Gunshots" also proved to be a great read and introduction to the Lucy Stone series. Meier really captures the reader's heart as Lucy investigates the disappearance of a child right before Christmas. Full of many twists and turns, this story proves to be a great read with a holiday miracle of its own. Overall this anthology proved to be a great holiday read that I would most definitely recommend.
