Review: Red, White and Blueberry Murder by Susan Gillard

Cozy Mystery


Guardian Publishing Group

Release Date:
May 29, 2016

Synopsis from Goodreads:

When Heather Janke hears that her oldest and most faithful customer, Eva Schneider, has been bonked on the head and is in hospital, she’s shocked to the core.

Especially when she discovers one of the main suspects is her newest assistant, Ken. With nothing but her eccentric puppy dog, Dave, and her burning desire to help put Eva’s attacker behind bars, she sets out on another sleuthing endeavor, determined to find the truth. But Heather has more to deal with than just the case: she has to balance a busy Donut Delights with the busy season in full swing, as well as the plans for her impending nuptials to her handsome detective fiancĂ©, who is less than impressed with her extracurricular activities.

Heather must get to the center of the mystery, but this one might turn out to be deeper than a donut hole.

My Review

Who would have thought being an owner of a donut shop would put someone right in the middle of a number of murders? That’s exactly what seems to continue happening to Heather Janke, the owner of Donut Delights. She is so relentless when it comes to investigating murder mysteries. She not only risks her life with her investigations, but she risks her relationship with her fiancĂ©, Ryan. It’s more than a conflict of interest since he’s the lead detective on each case.

This time one of Heather’s oldest customers is left unconscious with no substantial clues as to who would have done such a thing to this sweet old lady. Heather is determined to find the culprit and bring him or her to justice. Can she learn the truth and keep her relationship with Ryan intact?

I love these quick cozy mystery reads. It’s amazing how the author can combine mystery and romance in one short book. It is just the right amount of each, with the mystery being main focus. That’s just the way I like my cozy mysteries.  Although there is no murder in this particular book, it doesn't matter. The intrigue of the quest to find out who did this is fun to follow.

This is the 7th book in the Donut Hole Mystery series and I’ve enjoyed the ones I’ve read. These are great fillers for between reading big books or if you just want to delve into something for a couple of hours one afternoon. This series is perfect for that. My one complaint is that I’m always hungry for donuts after I finish these books. LOL
