Meet Suzanne Hart, owner and operator of Donut Hearts coffee shop in April Springs, North Carolina. After her divorce from Max, an out-of-work actor she’s dubbed “The Great Impersonator,” Suzanne decided to pursue her one true passion in life: donuts. So she cashed in her settlement and opened up shop in the heart of her beloved hometown.

But when a dead body is dumped on her doorstep like a sack of flour, Suzanne’s cozy little shop becomes an all-out crime scene. Now, everyone in town is dropping by for glazed donuts and gruesome details. The retired sheriff warns her to be careful—and they’re all suspects. Soon Suzanne—who finds snooping as irresistible as donuts—is poking holes in everyone’s alibis…

I love me a good cozy mystery now and again. I picked up this one for cheap online as it is a series first and I am always looking for new series to dive into. In this case I am glad I did! Glazed Murder centers around a woman named Suzanne who owns a donut shop. Not long after returning to work one morning Suzanne is surprised and horrified to find that a dear friend of hers lay dead outside her shop. Not wanting to be the next victim Suzanne quickly becomes a part of the case (while sharing delicious donut recipes along the way).

Glazed Murder is a GREAT cozy mystery. Readers are left wondering who the killer is while satisfying their sweet tooth with the YUMMY donut recipes that are included within the story. I liked this one and will be reading book #2.
