Footprints in the Frosting by Laura Pauling

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.
What I Thought:
This was a fun little read that I read in a couple of hours.  Holly is new to Fairview and she sure gets herself into some messy situations.  She finds a couple of dead bodies and has it out with the local journalist a couple of times.  This short story had me guessing to the very end.  It had several laugh-out-loud moments in it too, Holly sure can make things interesting.  If you are looking for a quick, entertaining read that will keep you interested then this is the book for you.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
