Even the beauty of Northern Michigan can't put a smile on the face of Emily Kincaid's perpetually cranky friend Deputy Dolly Wakowski, and when someone tries to destroy the only family Dolly has ever had, her crankiness turns lethal, even as the crime threatens to overwhelm her.
Still struggling in her career as a mystery writer, Emily takes a deep breath before stepping in to help. As they launch their search for Dolly's assailant and the investigation deepens, two strange clues emerge: the attacker's trademark black jellybeans and a note to Dolly reading "Thou Shalt Not Steal."
With Dolly's disposition growing more sour by the day and Emily growing more curious, the two encounter a violent and abusive boyfriend, dig up old clues from Dolly's painful past, and strengthen a friendship that's as odd as it is perfect. But before Dolly and Emily can puzzle it all out, a loved one of Dolly's will be murdered, another will be kidnapped, and a long-awaited confrontation between a mother and a daughter will heal at the very moment it kills.

Just love this series, please don't end it so soon!
Great series. Who injure baby jane
I just finished her first 5 books. Her writing style and descriptions sing to me. There's a lot of heart in her stories and a sense that no matter how awful life can get that there is hope.
Title: Dead Little Dolly - Emily Kincaid Mystery Book 5 Author: Elizabeth Kane Busselli Publisher: Beyond Publishing Published: 4-11-2013 Page: 310 Genre: Mystery, Thrillers & Suspense Sub-Women Sleuths; Cozy Mystery; Detective ISBN: 9781937349677 ASIN: B00CBWMKZ8 Reviewed For NetGalley and The Publisher Reviewed By: DelAnne Rating: 4.25 Stars Although never a bubbly personality Dolly's attitude has become downright surly and is fast approaching Grinch status. Someone has targeted Dolly and those she holds dear. It is with the help of Emily that the two unlikely friends begin to piece the clues together and we learn more of the contentious relationship between Dolly and her mother. We also see that although Dolly holds herself aloof from everyone, the town counts Dolly as one of their own and are protective of her. This is a fast paced, smooth read. Once again you will gasp as you laugh as Emily tries to figure out Dolly and why she keeps coming to her. She even begins to respect her and understand her more. There are plenty of clues, but the ending will still come as a shock to many. My rating is 4.25 out of 5 stars.
A very good book for a pg mystery
