Mysterious Saturday Review: Cookie Dough or Die

Olivia (Livie) owns the quaint cookie cutter shop The Gingerbread House. She and her BFF Maddie work at the store, while occasionally offering delicious cookies.

When Livie's mentor is found dead, she's not sure she can continue the store. All the joy's sucked out of cookie cutters. She's determined not to let the death ruin her happiness.

The death is believed to be accidental. Some details don't add up to Livie, she's sure her friend wouldn't mix wine and sleeping pills. Livie must uncover the truth behind her mysterious death to set her world back in order.

My Thoughts: The start of a new fun series. I love the cookie cutter angle. I love the friendship between Maddie and Livie and how they complement each other. Livie's mother is quite charming and very busy. Looking forward to more by this author.

Cover Thoughts: Very cozy and cute. I love the details, especially the cookie cutters and Spunky.

Many times these themed serial mysteries are quite good and quite fun...The Cat Who-- mysteries by Lilian Jackson Braun or The Culinary mysteries by Josi Kilpack for instance. (BTW, your blog title has a typo!)
