WELCOME BACK TO DONUT HEARTS—

where the coffee is hot, the donuts are fresh, and justice is oh-so-sweet…

It’s hard to keep a secret in April Springs—especially when it involves a no-good cheater like Peter Morgan. Donut shop owner Suzanne Hart has tried to be civil with the guy, since he’s dating her best friend Grace. But when Grace shows up at her doorstep—sobbing—Suzanne’s the first to admit she’s glad the relationship is over. She’s also the first to spot the footprints leading to Peter’s dead body…

“A delight. Suzanne Hart is a lovable amateur sleuth.” —Diane Mott Davidson

Instead of the usual morning donuts, the police are busy rounding up suspects and sifting through clues: Why did  Peter splash yellow paint on Suzanne’s shop window before he was murdered? How angry was Grace when she learned that her boyfriend was two-timing (or three- or four-timing)? Suzanne is willing to bet dollars to donuts that her friend is innocent. Now she has to prove it—before the real killer takes a powder…

“The perfect comfort read [with] a likeable heroine, quirky Southern characters—and donut recipes!” —Rhys Bowen

Read an Excerpt

CHAPTER 1

 

 

The dead body was hard to see at first in the deep shadows that surrounded it. Soon enough, as darkness faded into the edges of light, a false dawn would spread over the crime scene and reveal some of its secrets; photographs and videos would be taken, notes would be written, and the careful study of not only the victim, but the area around it, would occur. An amount of intense activity like no other would consume the investigators as they sought to solve the murder in the early hours of discovery.

But none of that would happen for hours yet.

For now, only one person knew about the crime, and they weren’t about to tell anyone.

One thing was certain; the lives of the people in April Springs, North Carolina, would never be the same once they knew that murder had come back to visit their sleepy little town nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
