About the Book:
When Heather Shepherd gets a frantic call from Honey Trickle, asking for help, she’s incredibly concerned, but that concern turns into downright horror when it’s revealed that Honey has been murdered… right on Heather’s front porch.
She’s angry and determined to bring the killer to justice, especially after she discovers that Amy’s boyfriend, Kent, might be a suspect. Armed with her superior investigating skills and enough Candied Maple Bacon Donuts to feed an army – and half the country – Heather sets out to solve the case. But things back at the bakery are heating up, especially with a new store competing for the attention of some of her most loyal customers. And Ryan’s new ‘boss’ isn’t making things any easier.
Heather has to focus on finding the truth and avoided the treacherous tall tales of one of Hillside’s newest residents. Solving this one could be more difficult than icing a donut, fresh out the oven.
Another great donut and another great murder. This book brings all those characters we know from previous books and ties them together with a new kid in town. Of course, it’s another quick read, but even quicker because we know most of the characters.
Geoff’s little incident with Eva is entertaining and Heather’s business is taking off so much she may not be able to keep up. I’m excited to see what is in store for her business in the future. Ryan is sitting this one out due to politics in the department, so I’m excited to see where this is headed in the future as well.
As much as I didn’t think I would like short mystery stories, this series has got me hooked. The pace in which they are being released is enough to let me read something in between, but not wait so long for the next book.
