Jealousy Filled Donuts: A Deputy Donut Mystery

Ginger Bolton. Kensington, $15.95 trade paper (288p) ISBN 978-1-4967-1191-5
Set in Fallingbrook, Wis., Bolton’s charming third Deputy Donut mystery (after 2018’s Goodbye Cruller World) opens on the morning of the Fourth of July when Deputy Donut shopkeeper Emily Westhill is supposed to drive the festivities’ king and queen in the town parade. Emily ends up with the duke and duchess, however, after the queen, Taylor Wishbard, turns up her nose at Emily’s restored Ford. That evening during a picnic, someone aims a firework, hidden in a batch of Emily’s donuts, at the snooty Taylor, killing her. When photographer Philip Landsdowner accuses Emily of lighting the firework, and Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation detective Rex Clobar considers her a suspect, Emily turns sleuth. Could it have been Taylor’s best friend or her old boyfriend? Maybe the hairdresser Taylor maligned or Landsdowner or someone from the ice cream shop where Taylor worked? Bolton keeps the reader guessing throughout. Yummy donut recipes round out a whodunit (or is it a whodonut?) sure to please cozy fans. Agent: John Talbot, Talbot Fortune Agency. (Sept.)
