Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Suzanne Hart is happy to sell crullers to the handsome man, Desmond, in her Donut Shop, until he starts throwing them at neighboring store owner Gabby. When she stops the food fight, Desmond threatens her and Gabby—something about a stolen brooch. Another encounter with Desmond brings another threat, and when he turns up dead the next day between the ladies’ stores, police are looking at both Suzanne and Gabby as suspects. A missing gun, grasping relatives, and a tempestuous love affair further cloud the man’s story, forcing Suzanne to launch her own investigation. In this sixth volume in a series, Suzanne also ponders her own personal life while her cop boyfriend is out of town, and her mother’s and best friend’s lives are transfigured by romance. While the details of the donut shop are featured as much as the plot, there are still enough twists to keep the story moving. Fans of Joanne Fluke’s cookie-store stories are certain to become good customers at Suzanne’s donut shop. --Amy Alessio

Review

Praise for the Donut Shop Mysteries by Jessica Beck

"[In Killer Crullers], Beck's sprightly sixth mystery...an astute sleuth and an appealing smalltown setting help make this a winner, along with tempting donut recipes interspersed throughout." --Publishers Weekly

“A delight. Suzanne Hart is a lovable amateur sleuth who has a hilariously protective mother and great donut recipes! Readers will have a blast with this book.” —Diane Mott Davidson, New York Times bestselling author of Fatally Flaky

“A tribute to comfort food and to the comfort of small town life. With great donut recipes!”—Joanna Carl, author of The Chocolate Cupid Killings

“The perfect comfort read: a delicious murder, a likeable heroine, quirky Southern characters—and donut recipes!” —Rhys Bowen, Agatha and Anthony award–winning author of the Molly Murphy and Royal Spyness mysteries

“A yummy new treat in the culinary mystery genre. Skillfully weaving donut recipes throughout a well-plotted story, the author proves that life after divorce can be sweet; all you need are good friends, your own business, and comfort food. Delicious!”—Tamar Myers, author of Death of a Rug Lord and The Cane Mutiny

Killer Crullers was a great read. I have read all six of the Donut Shop Mysteries. I mostly loved how the characters continue to evolve. Unlike some series, Beck has put a lot of focus on character development. The storyline kept me guessing, though I had my suspensions there was quite a bit of suspense. I am already looking forward to the next book in the series.

Oh no! Poor Donut maker, Suzanne Hart, owner of "Donut Hearts" and more often than she cares for, sleuth is thrown into another murder!

All Suzanne did was sell a dozen iced crullers to a client. Then, to her shock, she sees the customer pelting the store next door with them. What the heck? Suzanne goes over to find out. Gabby, owner of the used clothes store has a conflict with threats. Later that evening there is a man murdered between the two buildings. Police Chief Martin has no choice but to place both Suzanne and Gabby at the top of his suspect list.

I love the gentleness of the friendships and the love expressed for her Mother that Suzanne's character presents to us. It is not cloying but realistic and makes you wish you lived in April Springs, NC.

This novel is a bit different as Suzanne finds changes happening in her personal world and has to sleuth on her own.

The recipes sound yummy and make wonderful chapter breaks. Even tastier to make. Donuts are an attraction to the suspects, friends, and yes, this reader too.

I am excited by the glimpse of what is to come also. I'll be pre-ordering up one.

These donut books are all the same, entertaining, but lightweight and sloppy. For example, at one point the author is describing a conversation between the main character and her friend. The main character is describing an event in quotes, but she forgets to mention the main part of the event. Then the friend comments on the main part of the event that she was never told about. It's annoying. How can the author and the editor both not see this? There are spelling errors, grammatical errors, missing words. I wouldnt want to know any of these characters in real life. That said, I am on the 6th book, so it must have some redeeming quality. I think that might be that it is easy reading and makes me tired enough or bored enough to go to sleep.

This is a pretty good installment for this series.

In this go around, Suzanne has a box of Crullers all ready to go for someone, and that someone never picks them up. As luck would have it, someone wants a box of something, that has a lot of icing on it. It didn't matter what, it just had to have a lot of icing on it. Suzanne is all to pleased to sell this stranger the box of crullers. The man pays for it, then takes them and throws each frosted cruller at her neighbor's store front. Suzanne is concerned and wants to now why he's doing this. It turns out that the man thinks that the stores owner, Gabby, has taken $10,000 and a diamond broach that belonged to someone in his family. When the man turns up dead in-between Suzanne's and Gabby's store, it seem that Gabby is the prime suspect. It's up to Suzanne to clear Gabby's name and find the killer. With all of this going on, Suzanne has a lot of personal issues to deal with. Issues that can change her future. That's all I really want to say on the plot, anything more would be spoilers.

This really was a good installment in the series. What I like most about this go around is that we get to see character development. That's one of the reasons why this series is still a fresh read.

I also like the doughnut recipes, they sound really good.

If you've read all the books to this series, then you know what to expect and won't be left down.

I started reading the Donut Shop Mysteries as they sounded interesting. I was really bummed when the guy who made stuff out of railroad tracks was killed. That sucked. And this is a small town so pretty soon the author will run out of characters if she kills them all off. This particular book was kind of more of the same as thought the author was tired of this theme. Her later one after this: Deep Fried Homicide Donut Mystery #13 was actually a lot better.

I love the Donut Shop Mysteries. They keep my attention and an easy read. The characters are well developed. The only downside is that it makes me really hungry for fresh donuts.
