fun amateur sleuth 7 Aug 2010
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In April Springs, North Carolina (population 5001), Suzanne Hart owns the popular Donut Hearts donut shop. She is a reasonably contented person who loves her vocation especially being her own boss doing what she enjoys. Suzanne has a nice boyfriend, State Police Inspector Jake Bishop and several close friends. For the September Kitchens Extraordinaire, her buddy Marge asks Suzanne to demonstrate how to make donuts in her remodeled kitchen. Suzanne leaps at the chance to make beignets for the gala.

On the first day of the festival, Suzanne demonstrates to a large crowd how to make beignets when someone screams: "she's dead." Kitchen tour organizer Peg Masterson has been murdered with the weapon being Suzanne's lemon-filled pastry which the victim was addicted to and everyone in town knew it. Suzanne is at the top of Police Chief Martin's suspect list with Jake investigating though he rejects the notion that his girlfriend poisoned Peg. Distrusting the professional law enforcement officials including her Jake to do their jobs, Suzanne and her sweet tooth posse conduct an inquiry.

Suzanne in her second amateur sleuth (see Glazed Murder) knows that Peg was a nasty sort so had several enemies with strong motives of whom the donut maker places on her list. Fatally Frosted is a sugary concoction that provides readers a glimpse through the donut hole of living in a small town. Although one must wonder why she does not trust Jake to do the job and still see her, the story line retains a sense of realism due to the recipe like method employed by the amateur sleuth to uncover who were the strongest motivated and who had the means.

delicious read 10 Dec 2010
By Jennifer Rummel - YABookNerd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When Suzanne Hart agreed to help out her friend in a showcasing extraordinarily kitchens tour in North Carolina, she doesn't imagine that the day will end in murder. However, just as the tour kicks off and she's showcasing her own donut making skills, the chair of the event dies in the backyard of her host.

Next to the body rests a lemon jelly donut - from Suzanne's own shop. It appears to have poison mixed with the frosting. It's no secret Suzanne didn't like Peg, but she didn't kill her. Still, the police are investigating her and everyone knows they've torn apart her shop looking for evidence.

How will she be able to keep her store going if people think the donuts are poisoned? Suzanne knows for the sake of her store, she must launch her own investigation.

Not many people liked the prickly Peg and the list of suspects grows longer every day. Can Suzanne and her best friend Grace uncover vital information that will lead them to the killer without leading the killer to them?

I love this series - for the fresh donut twist (which always makes me CRAVE donuts), the insider's look on how to make donuts, the romance between Suzanne and an officer, and Suzanne's relationships with those closest to her.

series keeps getting better and better 8 April 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been a fan from the start of this series. The books keep getting better and better. I always look forward to the next one in this series. I love the strong headed main character and the people in her town really give you the impression you would get of small town people. Oh and the recipes? Wow! Awesome!

A culinary mystery that you can almost taste 11 April 2012
By S. Warfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Usually, I don't care for culinary mystery series, but I needed a cozy mystery break and this one sounded good. It lived up to my expectations for a book that entertained, had a good mystery and was a relaxing read.

No one makes homemade donuts like Suzanne Hart does in her donut shop, Donut Hearts. In the opening of this book, Suzanne is very nervous about an upcoming event organized by perfectionist town resident, Peg Masterson. Peg has redone her kitchen and has engaged Suzanne to go through the steps of making donuts and then serving them to those coming through on a kitchen tour. Peg doesn't like donuts, but she will eat one of Suzanne's lemon donuts once in a while. Suzanne had just made some of Peg's favorites.

The kitchen tour has barely started when a murder occurs. The murder weapon is found in the deceased's hand and it happens to be a lemon donut with a bite out of it. The town police look straight at Suzanne and Donut Hearts as the suspect. Suzanne is a good amateur sleuth, and with the help of her sometimes-boyfriend and her ex-husband, she manages an investigation of her own.

This is a very good cozy series and the characters are very likeable, especially Suzanne and her overbearing, but well-meaning mother. Her donut shop has a feeling of reality to it, and her helper, Emma, is a good character, too, and both have a great work ethic.

The book is full of donut recipes that are so delicious-sounding, they are to die for.
