I'm reading Joanne Fluke's - Hannah Swensen Mystery series. Hannah owns/operates The Cookie Jar, a local bakery in small town Minnesota, where she melts pounds and pounds of butter and occasionally finds 'bodies.' On occasion, there are parallels to Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum; however, both female sleuths are 'ladies on the pages' you should meet. Oh yes, and the guys - there are always two guys to complicate matters...
Throughout the pages of each novel Hannah shares her bakery recipes. I've been testing a sampling. Delicious, absolutely delicious!
The books are a fun read - the cookies are simple and quite tasty. I encourage you to undertake the adventure...
