When Hannah Swensen finds her neighbour Ernie Kusak with his head bashed in and sprawled on the floor of his condo next to an upended box of Hannah's Gingerbread Cookies, she discovers a flurry of murder suspects that's as long as her holiday shopping list. "The Dangers Of Gingerbread Cookies" is written by Laura Levine. Jaine Austen has been enlisted to help with her parents' retirement community's play The Gingerbread Cookie That Saved Christmas. Playboy Dr. Preston McCay is playing the role of the gingerbread cookie when he 'accidentally' falls to his death during the final act. Now Jaine must figure out if one of the doctor's jealous lovers was capable of murder. "Gingerbread Cookies And Gunshots" is written by Leslie Meier. When Lucy Stone discovers the body of Rick Juergens, whose five-year-old son Nemo disappeared, she senses foul play. Crumbs from a gingerbread cookie Lucy gave to Nemo are found in the back seat of Rick's car. With the hours quickly ticking till Christmas, Lucy races against the clock to find a killer before he strikes again.
Review:

I have read a few reviews of Joanne Fluke's books and decided to give one a try. Unfortunately I wasn't paying enough attention and grabbed one that was three authors in one. All stories about murders involving gingerbread men. 

Pros:
I am now in the mood for Christmas. 
I did like my first Joanne Fluke book short story, so will probably try another. 

Cons:
The other two stories were silly. 
One was kinda funny, but the last one had way too many characters in it.

They are kind of in order - or at least they will make more sense if you read them in order. Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder is the first and it's awesome! I've read up to #7.
