Fatally Frosted (Donut Shop Mystery Series #2)

As if Suzanne isn't stressed out enough doing a public cooking demo at the Kitchens Extraordinaire event, then a dead body is found - and the victim is holding one of Suzanne's donuts. Suzanne is the prime suspect, even though she had no motive, so she's got to clear her name and protect her business.

This was a good mystery. Plenty of strong possibilities for the murderer to keep the reader guessing. In this particular story, there weren't a lot of likable characters - Suzanne ticked off a lot of folks as she asked questions and conducted her own investigation. [Things even felt a little bristly with the series regulars.] In this regard, this was more believable than some cozies where everyone wants to talk to the amateur sleuth and spill their guts.

I don't know that you have to read this story in order (it's #2 in the series after Glazed Murder) for it to make sense. If you enjoy cozy mysteries (and can put up with all the talk of delicious donuts without having to run to the store), give this series a try.

4 out of 5 stars
