Red, White and Blueberry Murder
(Donut Hole Mystery #7)
by Susan Gillard
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 fiancé, 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.
Red White and Blueberry Murder is the seventh book in the Donut Hole Mystery series by Susan Gillard
While I do own a few of the other books in the series, this was the first that I chose to read - because it fit well in a few of the categories of various reading challenges I am doing.
I was surprised at how quick it was to read this book. The storyline held my attention from start to finish. The synopsis of the story is this: Heather Janke owns a Donut Shop. One of her oldest and most faithful customers has been attacked. Heather and her dog, Dave, set about trying to determine who would want to hurt her friend. Her detective fiance is not pleased with her wanting to get involved in the case.
While this is the seventh book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. And now that I've read this one, I plan to go back and read the series from the start.
Some of the characters where rather quirky, but I think this makes the book a rather delightful read.
