Three Wishes

I love everything this author has written; many readers may be familiar with more recent books. The stories take place in Australia, but that makes no difference, for each one of the characters in her books will remind you of someone you know. They are often funny, sometimes sad, but true-to-life tales of ordinary families in the real world. We may not all experience everything that happens, but we all can certainly relate to it!

This cozy mystery series takes place in the small town of Lake Eden, Minnesota. Hannah has returned to her home town and opened a bakery. Quite like Jessica Fletcher of Murder She Wrote, Hannah seems to stumble across dead bodies with amazing regularity! With the help of her sisters, her indomitable mother, two men who are in love with her, and all the quirky small town folks, Hannah manages to solve the mystery. Each book is filled with tempting recipes. A few of the books were adapted for the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries Channel as Murder She Baked.

There are 18 books in the series, from Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder to Double Fudge Brownie Murder.
