Killer Crullers: A Donut Shop Mystery

Jessica Beck. St. Martin’s, $7.99 mass market (336p) ISBN 978-1-312-54231-3
At the start of Beck’s sprightly sixth mystery featuring April Springs, N.C., donut shop owner Suzanne Hart (after 2011’s Tragic Toppings), Desmond Ray admits after buying a dozen crullers from Suzanne that he plans “to throw them at the woman next door,” meaning Gabby Williams, the owner of ReNEWed, a gently-used-clothing store. As Desmond pelts the front of Gabby’s shop with heavily iced crullers, he accuses Gabby of stealing a diamond brooch and $10,000 in cash from his aunt’s donated coat. When Desmond is later found shot dead in the narrow strip of grass between Donut Hearts and ReNEWed, Gabby becomes the prime suspect. With Suzanne’s state police officer boyfriend away on an assignment, it’s up to her to clear Gabby’s name. An astute sleuth and an appealing smalltown setting help make this a winner, along with tempting donut recipes interspersed throughout. Agent: John Talbot. (Jan.)
