She writes mystery books with recipes. I've read several of her books and copied some of the recipes but I'm reading a later published book and it mentions cookies that appeared in earlier books. Do any of you have her recipes and would share them? Thanks.

Vicki, thanks so much. I checked on the internet but not here.
BTW, I love your hearts and weather on your reply.
Wish I were smarter about that but I don't even understand the directions. They assume I know what the lingo is and what I'm doing.
I have every one of her books accept key lime, let me know which you want and I'll give them to you. her recipes are wonderful everyone I've tried have been beautiful.
That's the one I'm reading right now!
If you want the key lime pie recipe, I would be happy to copy it for you and mail it to you.
I like the recipe mysteries. I seem to get in a rut and read books by series, then get bored and move on.
For your own sake, pls don't put your email address on here as a direct link. You don't know who may find it. You could use the edit key to go back into you post and change it now.
Even changing @ for at, .com for dotcom, anything so that there is not a direct link.
It's my yahoo account which isn't connected to my computer but I've changed it.
there are a couple of recipes here. Just search her name and you will find some of them.
I use my airmiles reward miles points to get Chapters gift cards (Canada's version of Barnes and Noble) and I'm going on a trip to cali in March so I'm picking up some books with my latest gift card and one is going to be the Key Lime one, I always wait for paperbacks to come out to buy them, but read the hardcover when it gets to the library. I'm on the Library list for Carrot cake now, # 1 too.
P.S. Did you know that she answers recipe questions? I email her questions I have about her recipes and she or her husband always answer them and within a day too. If you go to her site you'll see a cross stitch bookmark in the pic section she said her friend Chelle made. It was me that made that.
I am looking for the red velvet cookie recipe,, anyone has it that would be wonderful.. love this site
Welcome to the board Marybakered! I found this via Google:
love red velvet cake so thought I'd give this a try - they were delicious. Ironically, this didn't come from a cookbook but from a culinary mystery book, The Carrot Cake Murder by Joanne Fluke. Just watch the baking time since it's hard to tell if these are done because of the red color but 9-11 minutes were a perfect baking time with my oven. These would be perfect Christmas (or Valentine) cookies because of the red color. Once you frost them, you can even use Christmas sprinkles on them. 2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate½ cup (1 stick) butter at room temperature2/3 cup brown sugar, firmly packed1/3 cup granulated sugar½ teaspoon baking soda½ teaspoon salt1 large egg 1 tablespoon red food coloring¾ cup sour cream2 cups flour (pack it down in the cup when you measure it)1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips1. Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper. Spray the parchment paper with nonstick cooking spray. Melt chocolate and let cool.2. Combine the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar together in the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat them on medium speed until they’re smooth. This should take less than a minute.3. Add the baking soda and salt, and resume beating on medium again for another minute, or until they’re incorporated. Add the egg and beat on medium speed until the batter is smooth. Add the red food coloring and mix for about 30 seconds.4. Shut off the mixer and scrape down the bowl. Then add the melted chocolate and mix again for another minute on medium speed. Shut off the mixer and scrape down the bowl again. At low speed, mix in half the flour. When the flour is incorporated, mix in the sour cream.5. Scrape down the bowl again and add the rest of the flour. Beat until the flour is fully incorporated. Remove the bowl from the mixer and give it a stir with a spoon. Mix in the chocolate chips by hand.6. Use a teaspoon to spoon the dough onto the parchment-lined cookie sheets, 12 cookies to a standard-sized sheet. Bake the cookies at 375˚F for 9 to 11 minutes, or until they rise and become firm. Slide the parchment from the cookie sheets and onto a wire rack. Let the cookies cool on the rack.Cream Cheese Frosting¼ cup butter, softened4 ounces cream cheese, softened½ teaspoon vanilla extract2 cups confectioners’ sugar1. Mix the softened butter with the softened cream cheese and the vanilla until the mixture is smooth.2. Add the confectioners’ sugar in half-cup increments until the frosting is of proper spreading consistency.Here's a pic of the finished product - unless you love cream cheese frosting, I wouldn't top the cookies with too much frosting. They also taste good without the frosting. Oh, and I love chocolate chips so I made mine with milk chocolate chips and used 2 cups instead of 1.

does anyone know was there a brownie recipe in one of her books?
Yes there is a brownie recipe but it's for a spicy hot one. I just finished reading "Sugar Cookie Murder" and it's in there.
Sorry, I ahve already returned the book to the library.
There is no scratch brownie recipe that I remember (I've got the books in storage so I can't look right now.). She made Hot Brownies but she used a mix and added chopped jalapenos to it but again, I won't be able to get to the books until the beginning of April to double check.
