Tragic Toppings (Donut Shop Mystery #5) by Jessica Beck
Emily Hargraves, the owner of Two Cows and a Moose, the local newsstand, was last seen stopping at Donut Hearts to purchase two candy covered donuts.
After that she has disappeared without a trace: no answer on her phone, the newsstand left open, and nowhere to be seen.
Also missing is Suzanne’s ex-husband Max. Could he be involved with Emily’s disappearance? Or just involved with Emily?
As Suzanne was the last one to see her, she feels it is her duty to solve this case.
Thoughts After Reading:
It was horrible!
The mystery described is solved in less than 15 pages and not even about that. It was badly written and a dumb move.
I was so mad I wanted to just toss it, but it was a library book so I didn’t. It is really about a handyman being hanged in a tree in the park and just horribly written and a horrible mystery, plot, characters, etc.
