About the Book:
When Heather Shepherd hears that the friendly newbie in town, Bernie Belushi, has been murdered courtesy of one of Geoff Lawless’ rock hard fudge balls, she’s concerned.
That concern turns into determination when she discovers that Kent’s Aunt is the main suspect. Heather must bring Bernie’s killer to justice, with a little help from her husband, Ryan of course. Armed with nothing but her sleuth gene, Amy’s quick wit and Dave’s barks of encouragement, she marches off to Geoff Lawless’ store to investigate.
But things aren’t as simple as she’d like: Geoff is positively panic-stricken and a professional at getting in the way, a mysterious car tails Heather around every turn, and a rash of burglaries has set Hillside’s residents on edge.
Heather has to put the distractions aside and focus on the case, and her Green Velvet Donut creations, or risk another of her hometown’s residents, and a new business venture to boot.
Not sure if I love the idea of green velvet on a donut, however, I loved the play on words though with the murder. The mysterious car driver, I’m interested to see where that leads. I also like how Amy has got more involved in helping to solve the murders. The little sleuth is fun too!
And needless to say, I was a little worried when someone was sitting in Eva’s spot. I would love to see a national chain of Donut Delights in my city. This is a fun little series. I did put this series on hold for a while, so have four more books to catch up on.
