My review: Footprints in the Frosting by Laura Pauling


This is the first book in a new series.  It is fun, light cozy mystery.  I like the characters and want to see more of them and see them grow.  The characters were a wide range.  You did not know who they were or if they were crazy.

The mystery of the story was good.  The suspect pool was small.  Why was Holly being framed for the murder.

Holly Hart loved Fairview.  She wanted to live in a small town.  She is having a grand open for her business  Just Cheesecake.  She is having a bad day when her dog gets out of her new apartment and she chases him out in her P.J.s  Meets a hot guy, finds a dead body in her new shop.

Holly is not sure who to trust.  She looks crazy at times too.  She tries to find out who the victim was and who wanted him dead.  Holly gets into a lot of trouble.

I want to see more of the characters.  If you want a good laugh with your mysteries you will want to read Holly Hart mystery.

I was given Footprints in the Frosting to read in exchange for a honest review and being part of it's blog tour.
