My Nails and My Book Review - Survival of the Fritters by Ginger Bolton


Title: Survival of the Fritters
Series: Deputy Donut Mystery #1
Author: Ginger Bolton

Goodreads Summary: 
Emily Westhill runs the best donut shop in Fallingbrook, Wisconsin, alongside her retired police chief father-in-law and her tabby Deputy Donut. But after murder claims a favorite customer, Emily can’t rely on a sidekick to solve the crime—or stay alive.

If Emily has learned anything from her past as a 911 operator, it’s to stay calm during stressful situations. But that’s a tall order when one of her regulars, Georgia Treetor, goes missing. Georgia never skips morning cappuccinos with her knitting circle. Her pals fear the worst—especially Lois, a close friend who recently moved to town. As evening creeps in, Emily and the ladies search for Georgia at home. And they find her—murdered among a scattering of stale donuts . . .

Disturbingly, Georgia’s demise coincides with the five-year anniversary of her son’s murder, a case Emily’s late detective husband failed to solve before his own sudden death. With Lois hiding secrets and an innocent man’s life at stake, Emily’s forced to revisit painful memories on her quest for answers. Though someone’s alibi is full of holes, only a sprinkling of clues have been left behind. And if Emily can’t trace them back to a killer in time, her donut shop will end up permanently closed for business . . .

My Review: **I voluntarily read this ARC**
This was a fun start to a new series. I really liked that Emily didn't rely on her father-in-law, the former police chief, for help in solving the murder. The mystery was well written, and I was surprised by the ending. I'm definitely looking forward to reading the next book.

My Manicure: Donuts! Yeah, I went for the obvious, but the image is just so darn adorable. I started out with KBShimmer PT Young Thing. For the donuts, I used Bundle Monster XL323 and Bam! White for reverse stamping. The coloring was done with acrylic paints.
