Author: Victoria Lowell
Series: Book 6 A Cookie Cutter Shop Mystery
Publisher: Berkley
Source: Received for Review from the Publisher

Reviewed by: Tina

Cookie baker and owner of The Gingerbread House, Olivia 's mother, Ellie is truly a eccentric soul. She loves anything yoga and fitness and when she decides she wants to open a Arts & Crafts School, Olivia is excited by the aspect of baking in the kitchen where baking classes are to be held taught by Olivia's best friend and business partner, Maddie.

The renovations are in full swing as the workers find hidden bones within the walls of the  was once a  old boarding house along with the bones there are treasures to behold that only Olivia and Maddie could love a silver necklace with a cookie cutter charm and later discovered more antique cookie cutters and more bones. A highly emotional teenager, Alicia is sure the bones belong to her father because she had once given him the silver necklace with the charm.

The cookie cutter connection prove to be too much for Cookie bakers Olivia and Maddie and they are instantly drawn into the investigation but finding the secrets to the hidden bones means that they have to seek out a murderer that could lead to danger but antique cookie cutters and the search for the truth are far more paramount to this cookie baking duo.

Cookie cutters and murder. Author Virginia Lowell brilliantly brings them both together and I loved how it instantly drew me into the story. Food and murder always draw me in and  Dead Men Don't eat cookies was hard to put down and no exception. I love Livie and Maddie and they made an exciting crime fighting team and and their investigating and cookie baking adventures inside The Gingerbread House bakery by far my favorite moments to this mystery with baking and delicious food descriptions only a true foodie like me can love. I'm still dying to know what diner owner Pete puts in his meatloaf's secret sauce.
