Beyond a Reasonable Donut (A Deputy Donut Mystery)
by Ginger Bolton

What a great and enjoyable mystery!! . . . I loved this well-written story and it had so many twists and turns, that it was hard to keep up.
~Moonlight Rendezvous

BEYOND A REASONABLE DONUT is the best of the best in this series. The story is solid, with all of the elements expected in a cozy mystery, amped to a new level.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews

I was totally caught up in the mystery with one theory after another but never got on the right path to solve the crime. I love when that happens. I love a sticky story that I can sink my teeth into and tests me.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

Red herrings (good ones) abound in this book, and I was surprised in the end. Mouth-watering food, interesting characters, a dash of romance and a well-written plot – sign me up!

What more can you ask for in a cozy escape read? This series has it all, and this book has everything you could want and more!
~Laura’s Interests

This book rocked it out! Plenty of secrets and red herrings and clues. I did not figure out the villain beforehand, which made me happy. I like when I’m stumped.
~Valerie’s Musings

The author did a good job with setting the small-town scene. I felt like I had visited Fallingbrook from all the charming descriptions. I especially enjoyed the latter part of the book set at a resort with old-fashioned cabins and lodge.
~View from the Birdhouse

Beyond a Reasonable Donut by Ginger Bolton is a fantastically well-written novel of mystery . . . I loved every minute of it.

Selling her corn fritters at a carnival, Deputy Donut Café owner Emily Westhill faces off against a murderer who doesn’t play fair . . .


Emily and her assistant, Nina, are looking forward to manning the Deputy Donut tent at the Faker’s Dozen Carnival in Fallingbrook, Wisconsin—a festival held on Friday the thirteenth to celebrate good and bad luck. But Emily has barely dropped the corn fritters in oil when bad luck boils up. First, their bucket of confectioner’s sugar disappears—and then while a mime creates a distraction, a magician robs their cash register.


After the carnival, their misfortune continues. Emily discovers that someone has broken into artist Nina’s loft and vandalized a large painting in progress with the bucket of stolen sugar, which is now on the head of the mime, who seems to have been suffocated. Emily would bet Nina was the intended victim, but the cops think Nina silenced the mime. Now Emily must catch the killer white-handed—before someone else kicks the bucket . . .
