This is the first time I’ve read anything by this author, but I’ve been so intrigued by this series. I’ve seen it around for months. It’s the first book in the “A Cozy Donut Hole Mystery” series. So far there are 16 books in the series. That’s a lot but they are short books. It’s approximately 200 pages a book.
I liked the main character, Heather. I did have a couple of problems with her walking freely around the crime scene. She’s not part of the police, she owns a donut shop. Then, there were a couple of problems with the editing of the book. I was bothered by a couple of things, which I don’t want to specify because I don’t want to inadvertently giveaway spoilers, but I got over it. I was still able to sit back and enjoy the story.
It’s not a complex storyline, but I also didn’t figure out who the killer was until the end. So, that’s a good thing. It’s a fast read and I’ll definitely continue reading this series. Did I mention how hungry I’ve been for donuts since finishing this book? LOL
