Footprints in the Frosting
by Laura Pauling

What a wonderful read by a new author ( for me )…
~Bab’s Book Bistro

This fun fast moving book will bring humor and wittiness and hours of great reading…
~Shelley’s Book Case

Fun for all, with a cute budding romance, some odd and endearing characters, and a mystery that’s not easily solved, I recommend this to all cozy fans.

Ms. Pauling did a wonderful job of writing an intriguing and engaging mystery, which led to a surprise ending.
~Lisa K’s Book Reviews

I never guessed who the killer was. I was a bit surprised at one twist with the reveal..but you will have to read the book to find out more about that.
~Storeybook Reviews

I really enjoyed Footprints in the Frosting – in fact I read it in an afternoon.
~Kaisy Daisy’s Corner

It is fun, light cozy mystery. I like the characters and want to see more of them and see them grow.

This is a quick read, just right for the beach. Characters are interesting and easy to keep straight – my favorite is crazy Charlene and her conniving ways of helping with the mystery and matchmaking.
~Christa Reads and Writes

A comedic cozy in a small town setting, Footprints in the Frosting by Laura Pauling is full of colorful characters, a cute little “crime hound” and plenty of laughs. The first book in a new series, Footprints in Frosting is lighthearted and the perfect beginning for the Holly Hart character.
~Queen of All She Reads

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.
~Melina’s Book Blog

What a fun debut to the Holly Hart Cozy mystery series.
~Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows

Footprints in the Frosting is a fun and light summer beach read that will brighten your mood and keep you entertained. I hope the people around you don’t think you’re crazy when you break out in laughter.

Footprints in the Frosting by Laura Pauling is a fun start to an enjoyable cozy series.
