  • I loved it!

    The fourth book in this series is a delicious delight. The premise of a "donut shop" cozy has certainly been done before, but this series gives it a fresh taste. The characters are some of my favourites, well written and entertaining. The whodunit grabbed me from the get go, and kept me guessing until the end. I recommend this book and look forward to reading the next one. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Good read!

    amateur-sleuth, law-enforcement, Wisconsin, small-business, small-town, friendship, cozy-mystery***** Wisconsin seems to be featured in cozies much more often lately (I live there)! This one cleverly combines donuts, law enforcement, a cop's widow with a love of kayaking, a small town, and a creepy, self absorbed retired banker with a taste for a much younger women. The plot and storyline are well done and the imagery of the touristy rural are great as are the engaging characters. Of course there are twists and several red herrings enough to make this a good read! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Kensington Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

  • Highly Entertaining

    Emily Westhill runs the best doughnut shop in Fallingbrook, Wisconsin, alongside her retired police chief father-in-law and her tortoiseshell tabby cat, Deputy Donut. with Halloween looming, Emily has already made a good impression on local eccentric Rich Royalson, with her speciality cream doughnuts. Royalson has planned his 70th birthday and although the catering is already sorted, he has requested an urn of coffee and a batch of the doughnuts with double thickness chocolate frosted icing to be supplied by the Deputy Donut Cafe. The celebration is being held on fog-shrouded Lake Fleekom where, twenty years ago, Royalson's wife mysteriously drowned, but when Emily arrives with her scrummy Boston scream doughnuts, she happens across Royalson's corpse... Boston Scream Murder is my first read in this remarkable series. Although it is book four, I had no difficulties keeping up with characters and events, but I would have preferred to have started from the first novel for continuity reasons. Protagonist Emily, a former 911 operator and widow of a police officer, brought her sparkling personality to the proceedings and I also enjoyed the contributions from Brent (Emily's husband's partner). Events moved along at a comfortable pace and the mystery itself was fantastic. There were plenty of suspects to choose from, to satisfy my armchair detective propensities and the denouement was a surprise to me. I had a ball reading this highly amusing and entertaining cozy mystery and I'm already looking forwarding to catching up with Emily in book #5, Beyond a Reasonable Donut, as well as grabbing copies of the first three books. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Kensington Books via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • Halloween and murder are in the air

    Emily and Tom are turning out the Halloween themed donuts that keep people coming in. When regular customer, Cheryl, meets her online date, Rich, at the shop, everyone finds the man annoying, even Cheryl. Later in the day, both are back with new dates and things get a little awkward. But Rich invites Cheryl and her date to his birthday party the next day. When Emily arrives to deliver donuts and coffee, she finds Rich dead in the party tent. With a misty lake, Halloween decorations and spooky thoughts, the scene is set for Emily to sleuth and try to find a murderer so that Brent can attend her Halloween party without a case hanging over his head. But Emily has to hope she won’t become a real ghost for Halloween as she tracks the murderer. A fun read with a solid whodunit. Well developed characters and lots of suspects and red herrings to keep you changing your mind about the killer until the end. Donuts, cops, and a kitty make it even sweeter.

    Thanks for your feedback!
