Random Review: "Sinister Sprinkles" by Jessica Beck

Okay all, I have just found and this is my first attempt to review a book there and copy it to my blog!  I'm so excited ... Yay! 

Sinister Sprinkles (Donut Shop Mystery #3)Sinister Sprinkles by Jessica Beck

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

ABOUT:  Susanne Hart is a donut shop owner who is constantly finding herself in the middle of a murder investigation.  In Sinister Sprinkles, Darlene Higgins was found dead in front of the courthouse in the middle of the Christmas carnival.  Why is Susanne a suspect?  Darlene just happens to be the woman that Susanne's ex-husband had an affair with, and essentially caused the divorce!
LIKES: Just like the others in the series, this is a very light, easy read. I like the setting of this series, and the characters have good personalities. The book itself didn't require much thinking, and I was (somewhat) surprised when I found out "who done it".

NOT SO MUCH: I wish the author would tie up some of the loose ends that are made throughout the book. Also, she tends to reference things later that didn't happen within previous pages. Maybe some of this will come together in later books? It's just frustrating wanting to know what happened to so-in-so, etc.

OVERALL: Overall, it was okay. I will continue to read the series because of how easy they are.

And just a side note ... the fact that the book contains recipes (for donuts and other yummies) is a good thing and a bad thing.  It gives it that something different, but I was reading this in the middle of a week long detox!  I would have killed for a donut ... who am I kidding, I was ready to eat the book!  LOL!
