Murder At the Christmas Cookie Bake-Off by Darci Hannah Great Escapes Book Tour Review

October 7 – My Reading Journeys – REVIEW

About the book

Tucked away inside an old lighthouse in Beacon Harbor, Michigan, bakeshop café owner Lindsey Bakewellis ready to make her first Christmas in town shine bright. But her merry plans crumble fast when murder appears under the mistletoe . . .

With the spirit of the holidays wafting through the Beacon Bakeshop, Lindsey thinks she has the recipe for the sweetest Christmas ever—winning the town-wide cookie bake-off. Unfortunately, striving for a picture-perfect December in Beacon Harbor is a lot like biting into stale shortbread. Low on staff and bombarded by visits from family, Lindsey can barely meet demands at work, let alone summon the confidence to face fierce competition . . .

Self-appointed Christmas know-it-all Felicity Stewart is determined to take the top spot in the bake‑off, and she’s not afraid to dump a little coal in everyone’s stocking to do it. Just as the competition heats up, everything falls apart when the judge is found dead—and covered in crumbs from Lindsey’s signature cookie!

Solving a murder was never on Lindsey’s wish list. But with her reputation on the line during the happiest time of the year, she’ll need to bring her best talents to the table in order to sift out the true Christmas Cookie culprit.

Includes Delicious Recipes! 

And I thought

The charm began at the cover! 

Author Darci Hannah provided this reader with a page turning Cozy Read with charm.

From the main character Lindsey who owns the most charming bakery in a light house of all places! 

To even the not so nice bakers that want to win bad.  Felicity sounds like such a pretty and charming name but ...

And then the book takes place at Christmas time.  What could be more charming until someone does the unspeakable and literally tries to set up Lindsey! 

I had a jolly time following the clues and trying to figure out who's next kitchen was gonna be behind bars.  

Since Darci included recipes it's time now to go bake.  

I received a complimentary copy. 

My review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads.
