Synopsis: 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 . . .
Review: A great start to a new mystery series. Emily is a very relatable character with a sad backstory. Her crowd of first responder friends makes for a great support system and the crowd of regulars at the donut shop give us a look into the town and their secrets.

When one of her regulars, a member of the local knitting group called the Knitpickers, is found dead, and her neighbor Lois, who is swiftly becoming a friend, is behaving suspiciously, Emily starts investigating. She and Lois get into some hilarious situations, and Emily's tabby, Deputy Donut, is her constant companion and has good instincts about people.

The author tells a fascinating story and keeps the reader's attention from beginning to end. The reveal of the murderer was rather surprising, as the character was someone I expected to be around for a while. Can hardly wait to read the next story in the series.

Rating:  Four stars
