Book Review – Cookie Dough or Die (Cookie Cutter Shop #1) by Virginia Lowell

   Title:  Cookie Dough or Die (Cookie Cutter Shop Mystery Series #1)

Author:  Virginia Lowell

ISBN:  9780425240670

Publisher:  Berkley


Synopsis (from 

Olivia Greyson is the proud owner of The Gingerbread House-a quaint shop that specializes in all things cookie-and her best friend, Maddie, is her sidekick, baking up scrumptious treats for their cookie-themed parties. But now they must take a break from baking and find a killer, or else their reputation-and quite possibly their lives-will be battered for good.
My thoughts: After having finished a heavy, serial killer novel, I needed to get back into some of my light mystery reading.  This book certainly fit the bill.  I am just a sucker for the cozy genre and I am even a bigger sucker when it is the first book in a new series.  This story follows Olivia Greyson, owner of the ever so cozy and quaint The Gingerbread Shop, a store specializing in all things cookie cutter.  Of course this also entails whipping up some delicious cookies in the kitchen in the back of the store.
Overall, a great, light, easy read.  As with most cozies, yes the book is a bit formulaic and cheesy, but that is what I love about them!  Nothing hard to think about.  Consider it a wonderful way to cleanse your reading palate as you prepare for your next heavy read!
