Synopsis from Goodreads:
While visiting her grandmother's friend at Hillside Manor, Heather learns that one of the nursing home's employees, aide Betty Shivers, was found dead outside the back door earlier that morning apparently as she was arriving for her shift.
Could the killer have been one of the other aides, who had recently--and very publicly--threatened to kill Betty? Could it have been Betty's ex-boyfriend, who had told her that their relationship wasn't really over? Only time and a little poking around will tell.
Join Heather and Ryan as they sift through the possibilities and crank out some delicious baked goods along the way.
This is a mystery series that combines its mystery with a little romance. It’s just the right amount of both. Each mystery is self-contained and doesn’t leave you with a cliffhanger. The romance aspect between Heather and her copy boyfriend develops throughout the series. We learn a bit more with this book.
I always look forward to paying another visit to Heather Janke and her gourmet donut shop in Texas. What a fun series! It has well-developed characters with an intricate mystery. I don’t want to give away any spoilers but the author does deal with some heavy subjects in a short novel, but she manages to still keep the story light-hearted. Very enjoyable read. I look forward to the next one.
Disclosure: I bought this one as a freebie for my Kindle. All opinions expressed are my own.
