    5. This is the third book in the series, when I first started reading them I wasn t too sure bout em Seems like maddi never sleeps is always baking cookies Livie seems to never be runnin her business but runnin round town instead The series grew on me and it s a good read but not one of my favorite series She casts suspicion on a variety of characters with the actual mixed in with them This book had a lil less violence pointed at livie than the last but it was still good Only wish is that she would [...]

    7. No connection to the characters Read first 2 books with same issue Was hoping the series would improve as it has a good foundation but just couldn t engage Also, too many inconsistencies in the storytelling, became distracting.


    8. This is really a 2.5 star read, but I m feeling generous today and going the extra.5 This series just really doesn t do a thing for me The best character is the dog Maybe I d like the books better if they had recipes I don t know, but something is definitely missing for me Eh


    9. I love this series If not for the character that drove me nuts this book would of been a solid 4 stars instead of 3.5 stars I loved the ending and will continue reading this series.

    11. With the amount of cozies I ve read, it is difficult to find one that would keep me guessing whodunit till the end.Well, this one did it Great read



    12. wasn t a big fan of this one a lot of new characters that I wasn t fond of the mystery was pretty boring and the reasons for the culprit were seriously thin to say the least Not my favorite.

    15. This series is really growing on me I still wish there was the occasional background on a specific cookie cutter but this storyline came close We learned about an entire Antique cookie cutter collection.Sleuth and owner of the Gingerbread House , Olivia Greyson, finds herself embroiled in a mystery involving the entire town of Chatterley Heights The town is celebrating the 250th anniversary of it s founding Center to the fete is the Chatterley Mansion, now owned by the town as the last owners ha [...]


    16. The first half of this book went really slowly for me, and I had a really hard time getting into it In part because Ms Lowell made the mayor such a nasty, ungrateful, rude piece of work This seems to be a very popular trend in cozies lately add a character that is completely, thoroughly hateful, allow them to treat everyone including the protagonist like shit, then have the protagonist roll over and take it like a co dependent abuse victim What is this about Has some publisher told authors that [...]

    18. I enjoyed it I love Livie and Maddie Yes, they eat like unhealthy college students all those cookies and pizza, honestly, if you really stop to count how many cookies they each consume in a single days time and knowing they eat like that every day, technically they should each weigh about 300 pounds, but maybe all of Livie s errand running and Maddie s general nervous energy just burns it all off whatever, LOL I still love them I got a little bogged down about half way into it with all the Mayor [...]


    19. A fun read The mystery didn t give me all of the clues to solve it, but the storyline made sense and you got to follow Livvie s train of thought The cookie decorating and shop aspect of the story was interesting, largely realistic, and didn t dominate the story One of the keys to a good cozy mystery series is a cast of characters that you can get attached to I got attached to these people and will keep my eyes open for in the series The only thing that didn t quite work for me was the location [...]


    20. Since I don t normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here s the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won t be reading any from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won t go out of my way to read , But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I d pick it up.4 stars I really enjoyed t [...]

    22.

    24. When the Cookie Crumbles by Virginia Lowell is a culinary fictional mystery read Not great writing, but I didn t know who the murderer was until the end It didn t captivate my attention and I was disappointed there were no recipes especially since the author constantly talked about gingerbread cookies being a comfort and relaxing people However, I was intrigued by the front cover I found the picture fun and colorfully delightful.


    25. This series has such an interesting premise to me Cookie cutters Who knew they could be so interesting and apparently valuable Guess I need to look in the baking drawer at my cookie cutters I really love the character, Maddie, she is so fun, outgoing and a great cook The murder mystery was good, I didn t exactly guess who done it til almost the end and even then I wasn t sure Nice story line.
