Book Description

Aug. 30 2011

Donut shop owner Suzanne Hart sees customers come and go all day long. But when one of them up-and-disappears, the police start asking questions. It seems Suzanne is the last person to have seen Emily Hargraves, who runs the local newsstand. Suzanne has nothing to report about their encounter. But when Emily doesn’t turn up, no news is bad news…

Suzanne has to admit that Emily’s last request was a little odd—a blueberry donut made to order, with chocolate icing, sprinkles, stars, and a chewy sour gummy worm coiled on top. Odder still: Suzanne’s ex-husband Max also appears to be missing. But what really takes the cake? The corpse Suzanne finds hanging from a tree in the park. Who knew donut-making could turn out to be such dangerous business…

4.0 out of 5 stars A good, easy read Sept. 9 2011
By swissmiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Many times I want a book to read that is just very easy reading, but still holds my attention and Jessica Beck's books always meet that criteria. If you have not tried her books and want just an easy read, try this one and her other "donut shop" books.

2.0 out of 5 stars Another banal boring rip off book Jan. 23 2013
By JJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This author shoots these books out like cookies from a cookie cutter. Just to make money. Total ripoffs of Joanne Fluke books but so badly done that Fluke should sue. Nitwit heroine who actually thinks that she is a detective, Boring friends, boring family members. I have no idea how these books got published.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great series, good book Nov. 1 2011
By Sarah J. Carlin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Donut Shop Mystery series is about Suzanne Hart who owns a donut shop called Donut Hearts. This is the fifth installment in the series.
1. Glazed murder
2. Fatally frosted
3. Sinister sprinkles
4. Evil eclairs
5. Tragic toppings

In previous books, Suzanne has investigated some of murders that have occurred in her small town with the help of her friends- Grace, retired cop George, and her boyfriend, state police investigator Jake. Tragic Toppings begins with Suzanne investigating the disappearance of Emily, a local newsstand owner. She is able to quickly crack the case, but later that night she finds a dead body hanging in the park. It's Tim, a local handyman who was well liked by all. Of course Suzanne starts digging into the case and this time, Jake is not on a job somewhere and is able to help. They quickly discover that Tim was quite a ladies' man, so the suspects are plenty.

Tragic Toppings is another good book in this series. The characters are their usual quirky selves and the mystery has lots of twists and turns. I would like to see more drama in their personal lives, just to have an interesting back story. I am eager to read the next one!
