REVIEW: CHOCOLATE CHIP MURDER BY JOANNE FLUKE

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

What it is about
Hannah owns a bakery and one day she walks outside to see that there is a dead body in front of her shop. Her brother in law, the town’s only detective asks her to do the leg work for him to solve the murder. 

POV- first person from Hannah 

HEA/HFN- yes

Funny parts- yes

Sad parts- yes

Love triangle- kind of 

Insta-love- no

Cheating- no

Super insecure character- no

Trigger warning- murder

Realistic scale- 3/5 

Pick this up if
You want a cute, fun cozy mystery. You like amateur sleuth storylines. You like it when a book has a lot of red herrings. You want something with a compelling mystery. You like books which have recipes in between chapters. 

Don’t pick this up if
You hate unrealistic plot points. You hate it when the main characters do dumb things. You are a stickler for proper police procedure. You’re adverse to the early 2000s writing where is a lot body shaming. 

Pages- 436

Audiobook- 9h 32m
