Heather finally has a week off before the new and improved Donut Delight is re-opening. However, when Ryan finds Quick Paul dead in his office, she gets pulled into the case. With a long list of shady business deals, it’s a surprise that he wasn’t knocked off sooner.
I’m not sure how I feel about this book. It was interesting, and finally the murder has nothing to do with doughnut delight. I don’t like the aspect that Heather as a character has taken. I prefer her as an amateur detective rather than it being the only purpose of the book. Geoff is still weird but thankfully he only appeared for a very short amount of time.
I really enjoyed Lilly in this book. I haven’t every mentioned her, however, she is a really sweet girl. The character has been built to be very similar to Heather with the instinct to investigate. That character as a whole is fun and works well in this series. It was an ok book, but nothing really wowed me with it.
After the lead ballerina is found dead right before the performance in Hillside. Heather gets brought in because there are more suspects then there are leads and they all have reason to want her dead. Between juggling donut delight and the investigation, Heather looks into the murder to make sense of the madness.
This is an interesting book. Though it seems that there are a lot of suspects but if you think about it for a second the murder is clear. It was well plotted and the pace was nice. Sometimes, I feel like the coincidences are a little exaggerated in the books but it’s sort of par for the course.
Hannah is flourishing into a good investigator, however, I feel like it would be nice to have her in the shop a bit more. I really wanted this series to turn into something similar to the Hannah Swensen series, but it is fun in its own rights.
