Cheesecake, Love, and Murder!

It’s the Grand Opening for Holly Hart’s new business, Just Cheesecake. When footprints in the frosting lead to a body facedown in one of her cheesecakes, Holly becomes a prime suspect.

With her opening day delayed, Holly deals with a nosy no-good reporter and the local cop, the handsome Officer Trinket, as she puts her sleuthing skills to the test to save her business and her name. With the help of her dog, Muffins, she needs to find the real murderer, before the killer looks to frost someone else.

bookreview
Footprints in the Frosting by Laura Pauling is the first full length book in the Holly Hart Cozy Mysteries series. (Click HERE for my review of the prequel novella Murder With a Slice of Cheesecake.)

In this story, Holly finally feels like she is getting ready to live her dream. It is almost time for the grand opening of her new shop, Just Cheesecake. But things don’t work out as planned when she finds a dead body face down in a cheesecake on opening day. Being new in town, she is painted as a suspect by a local news reporter. Holly takes it upon herself (along with the help of her dog, Muffins) to try to flush out the suspect and solve the case.

I really liked this book. Holly is a character that you just like right away. I enjoyed the mystery build up in this story. Charlene is a kooky and fun addition to the story. Officer Trent Trinket is one of the good guys and sounds adorable. 🙂 Footprints in the Frosting by Laura Pauling is a fun start to an enjoyable cozy series. I will be reading more to come in this series.
