Living with a movie star, even aging would be a dream for most people. However, after Thaddeus Turlington is found murderer in his nursing home, everyone is shocked. Determined to get in bottom of the beloved actors death, as well as getting to the bottom of what he was truly like while he was alive.

This was a good little book, however, I really wanted it to go further into the family dynamic of the victim’s family. The length of the books seem to be a reoccurring issue I have with this series. All the books have a similar problem for me.

The characters are growing nicely. Heather’s contributions to the police force is finally being recognized and a permanent position may open up for her. I’m not sure how Heather would be able to balance the new role along with running the store. I feel like me staff would have to be added.

I also feel like the shop was just forgotten because Heather had only added one employee sobe the expansion and with how busy the shop was she needs more.

Overall it was a fun book but it needs a little something more.

After a long time running around, Heather and Ryan get to have a lovely night at the motion pictures. However, their peaceful evening is shattered when a man is murderer in front of everyone. Now Heather has to push through the first time that she sees someone die in front of her. Heather is determined to figure out this murder as to not feel any more useless that she already does.

I actually really enjoyed this book. I must say that it addresses some of the concerns that I mentioned in my last review. We get a little bit on insight into Donut Delight and how the little doughnut shop was doing. There is also the chemistry between Ryan and Heather that I fell in love with in the first few books. They still make a cute couple.

Though the murder wasn’t terribly hard to figure out, the background to the murder victim and murderer was very interesting in this case. I enjoyed that Gillard went a little further than she normally goes, but I still would really love it if she were to developed all her characters a little more.
