by Darci Hannah

With nods to the Great British Bake-Off and a certain resident of the North Pole, MURDER AT THE CHRISTMAS COOKIE BAKE-OFF is a fun holiday mystery that will leave you believing in the spirit of Christmas and the joy of eating holiday cookies!
~Cozy Up With Kathy

Murder at the Christmas Cookie Bake-Off is a merry tale with cookie trickeries, dazzling lighthouse lighting, a bevy of baking, an affable assistant baker, delectable cookies, and a spectral captain.
~The Avid Reader

I loved this amazing cast of characters. Lindsey is one of those heroines that you will instantly love and I was sad to see her as the suspect in this one.
~Moonlight Rendezvous

Murder at the Christmas Cookie Bake-Off is a lighthearted cozy mystery set in a completely charming setting. Lindsey runs her own bakery, the Beacon Bakeshop, out of an old lighthouse. She lives there too! Set on Lake Michigan, it might be cold, but you’ll still feel cozy.

The mystery was very well done, with plenty of layers that revealed themselves a bit at a time and drew me in with some surprising twists!

There is so much to love in this quick-read whodunnit. The smells and tastes of the Christmas baking and drinks waft off the page to assault the senses.

. . . a fabulous holiday mystery that will make you hungry for sweets while keeping you entertained. A good way to embrace the Christmas spirit. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.

I really enjoy the setting of this series, a historic lighthouse on the shores of Lake Michigan. The characters are all likable and well-rounded. The plot was well thought out and the story flowed well.

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!
