Survival of the Fritters, by Ginger Bolton

I do enjoy a good cozy mystery–especially a mystery set here in Wisconsin. And did I mention doughnuts? What’s not to like?!

Emily Westhill is the owner and operator of Deputy Donut, the best and most popular shop in Fallingbrook. It’s not something she anticipated, but Emily’s husband, Alec, a police detective, always loved her doughnuts and bragged about them to the full force. After her husband died in the line of duty, Emily left her job as a 911 operator and opened Deputy Donut, named after the couple’s cat. The shop is a success and Emily loves seeing all of the regulars who come in for good coffee and delicious doughnuts. When one of the ladies in the town’s local knitting group is missing, Emily joins some other ladies and goes to find her. What they find it shocking–and could be part of a larger unsolved mystery five years in the making.

Survival of the Fritters is a quick reading cozy mystery with a handful of suspicious characters–and bonus recipes. A fine start to a new series.

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.
