Goodreads Summary:
 
"The holidays are the icing on the cake for bakery owner Hannah Swensen. Surrounded by her loved ones, she has all the ingredients for a perfect Christmas until murder is added to the mix...
When it comes to holidays, Minnesotans rise to the occasion and the little town of Lake Eden is baking up a storm with Hannah leading the way. The annual Christmas Buffet is the final test of the recipes Hannah has collected for the Lake Eden Holiday Buffet Cookbook.

While Hannah is baking the day s goodies at The Cookie Jar, the evening s plans begin to jell. Start with the best Lake Eden culinary creations, add two of Hannah s sometime boyfriends, a pinch of her ready-to-pop pregnant sister, and a dash of her mother and new significant other, an actual British lord, and what do you get? A recipe for disaster, but the juiciest ingredient is yet to come.."


My Take: 

I adored this book! I probably read all the Nancy Drew Books as a child, and this reminded me that I love a good mystery!

The book was fun, light and cosy and it provided sufficient guess work, laughs and surprises! I will definitely get the other books in the series :)

The last 100 pages or so of the book is filled with recipes that are talked about in the book! They are very well done with little comments. Love it!

Recommended for those who like a good cosy mystery that you can read while relaxing with a glass of wine!

*Spoilers*

None today :)

My Questions:

I haven't read the other books in the series, can someone tell me what is so great about Mike? He sounded like a real ass to me lol

Favourite Quote:

P.S. If it's not a secret, will you tell me how you got my dollhouse inside our living room last Christmas? I know its too big to fit down the chimney. I measured.

Sounds like a great book, I was a great fan of Nancy Drew growing up as well. I also loved the Hardy Boy Mysteries. I am your newest follower from Follow Friday, drop by my blog and check it out at kittycrochettwo.blogspot.com
