This book is what I would refer to as a "Nancy Drew for adults." It has all the elements that I enjoyed in the Nancy Drew series of my childhood. A good mystery, special friendships,a supportive family & boyfriend, " a spooky house" with hidden rooms, even sleuthing with a flashlight. The only thing missing was the convertible with the rumble seat. I would recommend this book, & the 2 previous books in this series, to anyone looking to cozy up with a good summertime read.
I am looking forward to more books in this series. Enjoy !

Olivia Greyson, owner of The Gingerbread House, is excited but a little worried about the upcoming celebration to honor her town's 250th birthday. She and her best friend Maddie Briggs have put a lot of time and money helping organize the event and making several custom gingerbread houses for display. Chatterley Heights's demanding mayor, Karen Evanson, has promised the town and the media that the highlight of the weekend will be a tour of the recently refurbished Chatterley Mansion. However, those plans are dashed when a Chatterley family member thought to have been dead arrives in town, moves into the mansion, and refuses to let anyone near his historic home. Not too many people seem to be excited to have Paine Chatterley "back from the dead" or back in town. Not only has Paine canceled the tour of his family home, but he makes several hints that he knows secrets about some of the major players in the town of Chatterley Heights. Is someone willing to kill to keep old secrets from being shared and make Paine's death a reality this time or will a "treasure hunt" going on in the mansion prove to be dangerous to Paine and other residents of the town?

"When the Cookie Crumbles" is another tasty trip to The Gingerbread House where Livie and Maddie cook up delicious and beautiful cookies to sell along with vintage cookie cutters and everything you need to make your own decorated cookies. The book's setting is just as delightful as prior books in the series, and the characters have mellowed and are comfortable with their lives in the Baltimore suburb of Chatterley Heights. Livie is a wonderful main character. She is kind, bubbly, and full of energy and optimism. With help from her rescue Yorkie, Spunky, Livie gives her boyfriend Sheriff Del Jenkins a hand in solving a murder in their town.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"When the Cookie Crumble"s is a cozy mystery that left me craving gingerbread. It's the third novel in the series, but you don't need to read the previous novels to understand this one, and this one didn't spoil the previous mysteries.

I enjoyed the characters in this cozy. There was a good variety of personality types, and the characters acted in realistic ways to the different situations. Olivia was a sensible gal who handled people well and was likable. The details about cookie decorating and cookie cutters were described well enough to give a feel for what went into the job and and for the reader see the main character's passion for them but without so much detail that it slowed the story.

The suspense was created by relationship tensions and from wondering whodunit. The mystery was interesting and kept me reading to see what the next clue would be. I did finally settle on whodunit shortly before the big reveal, but I couldn't figure out the motive and I'm still not sure I follow whodunit's reasoning (though I don't think whodunit's reasoning was supposed to be logic).

There was a minor amount of explicit bad language. There were no sex scenes (though plenty of past affairs were mentioned). Overall, I'd recommend this enjoyable mystery.

I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.

[[ASIN:0425251489 When the Cookie Crumbles (A Cookie Cutter Shop Mystery) by Virginia Lowell Berkeley Prime Crime Mysteries

Virginia Lowell has done it again! She manages to pull off a smart, funny,exciting trip to Chatterley Heights, where murder definitely wasn't on the plans for the small town's 250th anniversary celebration. Despite an officious mayor, a full schedule of cookie baking and event planning and a cookie cutter shop to run, Olivia Greyson lands herself smack-dab in the middle of a murder investigation, when a returned aristocratic black sheep turns up to claim the family mansion just in time for the town's celebration, and ends up 'accidently' drowned in his clawfoot tub....or was it accidental? Plenty of town residents have reason for Paine Chatterley to be silent...forever. Blackmail, sordid pasts,illicit affairs,lost children, and a very valuable cookie cutter collection hidden in his mansion: all add up to one sweet murder investigation (with plenty of decorated iced cookies in the bargain; all that sleuthing works up an appetite!). The colorful cast of returning characters, including Sheriff Del, mom Ellie, sidekick Maddie, and little Spunky the Yorkie terrier reprise their supporting roles in fine fettle. As in her previous mysteries, the ending has enough twist in the plot to surprise and delight. I haven't had so much fun reading a mystery since I was thirteen, swinging on the summer porch with a Nancy Drew mystery in one hand and a glass of lemonade in the other. This is Nancy Drew for grownups. It is immensely satisfying to have read three of Virginia Lowell's books, and know there will be MORE to come. Well done,Virginia! --(review by Sherry Ladig, reviewer for the Irish Music and Dance Association's column, The Bookcase)
