Emily Westhill runs the best donut shop in Fallingbrook, Wisconsin, alongside her retired police chief father-in-law and her tabby Deputy Donut. But after murder claims a favorite customer, Emily can’t rely on a sidekick to solve the crime—or stay alive.
If Emily has learned anything from her past as a 911 operator, it’s to stay calm during stressful situations. But that’s a tall order when one of her regulars, Georgia Treetor, goes missing. Georgia never skips morning cappuccinos with her knitting circle. Her pals fear the worst—especially Lois, a close friend who recently moved to town. As evening creeps in, Emily and the ladies search for Georgia at home. And they find her—murdered among a scattering of stale donuts . . .
Disturbingly, Georgia’s demise coincides with the five-year anniversary of her son’s murder, a case Emily’s late detective husband failed to solve before his own sudden death. With Lois hiding secrets and an innocent man’s life at stake, Emily’s forced to revisit painful memories on her quest for answers. Though someone’s alibi is full of holes, only a sprinkling of clues have been left behind. And if Emily can’t trace them back to a killer in time, her donut shop will end up permanently closed for business . . .

Ginger Bolton writes the Deputy Donut mystery series--cops, crime, coffee, donuts and one curious cat. When Ginger isn't writing or reading, she's crocheting, knitting, sewing, walking her two rescue dogs and generally causing trouble. She’s also fond of donuts, coffee, and cafes were folks gather to enjoy those tasty treats and one another’s company.

*I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Fairly solid start to a new cozy mystery series. Meet Emily who runs a donut shop with with her father-in-law. As a widow she is still trying to figure parts of her life out so it comes as no surprise that she would find herself wrapped up in a murder investigation it is a cozy after all. I like the mix of mystery and donuts as the two seem to blend nicely in this story. I enjoyed the characters as each one was introduced and feel that this is a solid foundation for more books to come which I am interested in I must say. I enjoyed how the author kept just enough twists in the story so the reader could not figure it all out too early. Parts were a little slow but I imagine it will pick up in future installments. I really enjoyed reading it so I give it 4/5 stars.
