What Are You Reading Wednesday #61: Survival of the Fritters

whatareyoureadingwedWhat Are You Reading Wednesdays #WAYRW is a weekly feature on It’s A Reading Thing. It’s fairly straight forward. Just answer a few simple questions about the book you are currently reading and the post it. If you use the image above, please make sure you link it back to It’s A Reading Thing.

How to participate:
Grab the book you are currently reading and answer three questions:

1. What’s the name of your current read?

Survival of the Fritters by Ginger Bolton

2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.

“It’s a crime, is what it is.”

So is homicide.  Wondering if his anger at Georgia had boiled over into a murderous rage, I paid for my purchases, put them into colorful cloth bags that Georgia had made for me, and went outside.  A scrap of torn awning flapped in the breeze.

I hadn’t been sincere when I promised to shop at Taste of Fallingbrook again, but maybe I needed to reconsider.  Learning more about this angry man could be useful.

Leave it to the police, Emily.  I could almost hear Alec saying it, with Brent, Misty, and Tom backing him up.

However, I had very good reasons for wanting to keep my ears and eyes open for clues about Georgia’s killer.

Alec had not solved Georgia’s son’s murder.  No one would say that I was duty bound to carry on my late husband’s work, but I wasn’t sure I could help trying.

3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

I have yet to start this book.  But here’s the blurb so you can see what it’s all about:

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 . . .
