Praise for Glazed Murder

“Jessica Beck’s Glazed Murder is 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

“If you like donuts—and who doesn’t?—you’ll love this mystery. It’s like a trip to your favorite coffee shop, but without the calories!” —Leslie Meier, author of the Lucy Stone mysteries New Year’s Eve Murder and Wedding Day Murder

“This delicious series will give readers some serious cravings…A light, fun read filled with entertaining characters who have the potential to transcend the cozy mystery formula in future volumes.”—Publishers Weekly

“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

“Jessica Beck’s debut mystery, Glazed Murder, is 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

From the Back Cover

WELCOME BACK TO DONUT HEARTS—where the coffee is hot, the donuts are fresh, and the weather outside is frightful…

Just in time for the Winter Festival, a glistening layer of snow has covered the streets of April Springs, North Carolina. Of course, it reminds donut shop owner Suzanne Hart of sweet delicious frosting. But her visions of sugar plums plummet when her ex’s ex-girlfriend gets iced …

“If you like donuts—and who doesn’t?—you’ll love this mystery series.”—Leslie Meier Suzanne could never understand why her ex-husband and actor Max cheated on her with Darlene Higgins. Why Darlene’s body was found wearing another woman’s clothes is an even bigger mystery. Now Max is suspected of murder—and Suzanne is sifting through her mixed-up love life looking for clues. If she can’t sprinkle evidence on her half-baked theories of whodunit, Max is as good as fried….  

“This delicious series will give readers some serious cravings.”—publishers weekly

I love this book, and this series, so much. And before I get started, I need to warn you that this series is not for everyone. This series is a soft, comfortable, sweet, and some people would call it fluff, series. I love these types of books, but some people don't.

That being said, the review of this particular book: Suzanne Hart, owner of Donut Hearts, and her assistant, Emma, go to the donut shop very early every morning to make donuts. Someone is found dead. Suzanne is determined to find out who the killer is and why. The mystery is very interesting, and for those people who might call this book fluff, the mystery part of it, to me, is very clever. Suzanne, and her best friend, Grace, go sleuthing. Suzanne's friend, loyal George, is a very comforting source of help. I won't tell you who is murdered, so that I won't ruin the book. All I will say, is that I think the mystery part of this book is good (no fluff in this department).

Now on to the coziness of this series: (And yes, there is lots of fluff in this department.) This particular series takes place in small-town North Carolina. Suzanne, the donut shop owner, lives with her mother. The town is cozy. The donut shop is cozy. Suzanne's life is cozy. But most of all, to me, Suzanne's mother's house is cozy. Suzanne, I think, has the best mother in the world. Her mother is so loving and caring. Some people might think her mother is a little too protective, but it is in a good way, not in a controlling way. Most people would love to have a mother like that. And the house in which Suzanne and her mother live: I visualize that place as so cozy and homy, it is indescrible. I sense such warmth and comfort, why would Suzanne ever want to marry and leave?

this book started out very promising but by 100 pages in, I started having serious doubts about how the author was going to make this slow plodding mystery become interesting or create any sense of urgency whatsoever. I'm new to Jessica Beck and this series, so long time followers of the series would know better than me if this was a fluke or if all her books are paced like this. the big problem for me was that the murder happens in the first chapter and you never meet the victim. after they find her body in the snow, you get a few bits and pieces about her in conversation of other characters, and then nothing more about the murder for so long. literally pages and pages and pages were filled with descriptions of food and the heroine eating. i kept thinking that maybe the author was hungry when she was writing this. don't get me wrong, i read a lot of cozy mysteries and don't mind a mention of homecooked meals, some hot coffee and donuts, etc. it adds a cozy touch, i get that. but this was ridiculous. i felt the heroine and her best friend went from meal to meal to mini-meal, with tons of forced banter between them, and NOTHING about the mystery. then at about 100 pages in we returned to that, still knowing very little about the victim and not having a reason to care. i kept plowing through until ultimately i gave up and just skipped to find out who the killer was. what I DID like about this book was the setting. I'm a sucker for snowy weather and small towns and Beck creates a very appealing picture of the town. her descriptions of the snowstorm, and the warmth of Suzanne's mom's house, the cozy decor of the donut shop, etc. were all well-drawn and made you want to snuggle under a blanket. Other than that, this was a let-down for me.

I started by reading this book from the series first and I enjoyed it so much I had to go back and read them all. I really enjoyed the characters and descriptions. I love books that make you feel the weather and like you are right there with them. I read a lot of books but rarely do reviews but this one is worth it, I don't think you will be disappointed at all, it has all the right things and is funny and makes you laugh. Great cozy!

I am half way through and I can't go any further. The protagonist left her husband after finding him in bed with some one else. Then he is in trouble, he robs her store and breaks into her friends house and then asks her for all the money(only a thousand dollars) she has to keep her going and she loans it to him. Of course only after "punishing" him alittle more with idle threats. This not a role model for strong independent women.

this is in no way a serious, or particularly dramatic book (or series), but it isn't meant to be. This is a light, fun read with ( for the most part)likeable characters. A nice diversion when you just aren't in the mood for something mentally taxing.

I like this series a lot. It reminds me a lot of Joanne Fluke's books. So in a way when you read this series you have two mysteries. One is the actual story and the other is, "Who is Jessica Beck?" I don't know if I subscribe to the theories that Joanne Fluke is Jessica Beck or not, but I enjoy both series. In this book, Suzanne breaks up with her boyfriend right before Christmas, only to find out she has to save her ex-husband from being charged with murder. I enjoyed the descriptions of the snow in North Carolina.
