Goodbye Cruller World

Goodbye Cruller World is a cute cozy that takes the stereotype of donut loving cops seriously. But don’t think having a sweet tooth and running a shop that sells donuts to Fallingbrook’s finest prevents Emily Westhill from having a gift for detection. Unlike many cozies, Goodbye Cruller World is populated by good cops and first responders who know their jobs, rather than bumbling ones (minus one particular single minded detective out to get Emily). It’s a nice change.
Emily’s company is hired to provide snacks to her neighbor’s wedding. Unfortunately, or fortunately (as Roger turns out to be a horrendous jerk), the groom is murdered on his wedding night - a victim of crullers dipped in what only looks to be powdered sugar. In a departure from standard cozy fare, Emily is not the main suspect, despite providing the donuts and discovering the poison.
