The circus is in town and Joyce and Brenda are excited that Donuts on the Move will be one of the vendors at the event. The circus has a close-knit, fun, eclectic bunch of performers and crew, and Joyce and Brenda are looking forward to getting to know them and to watch them in action.
But when one of the performers falls to his death, Joyce and Brenda find themselves right in the middle of a murder mystery. They land up juggling a long list of suspects and clues in order to help uncover the truth. But will they drop the ball before the murderer is caught?
It is a race against time for Joyce and Brenda to find the murderer before the circus moves to its next destination.
“Circus! It’s tomorrow! Circus! Circus! I can’t wait!”
“Mmph.” Charlie pulled his pillow over his head.
“Oh no, you’re not getting out of this one.” Brenda snatched the pillow away from him. “I have to meet Joyce first thing this morning, remember?”
“Oh, right.” Charlie rolled over so that his back was to her.
Seconds later, she heard a snore.
“Charlie!” Brenda gave his shoulder a light slap. “You have to get up, I’m already late.” She slid off the bed and turned just in time to catch Sophie as she launched off the bed. “Come here, you wild child.” She laughed as she hung on to the squirming six-year-old. “I know you’re excited, I know. I’m excited, too. Let’s get some breakfast ready while Daddy has a shower, hmm?” She ruffled her daughter’s hair, then set her down on the floor.
“Shower,” Charlie mumbled.
“Now, Charlie.” Brenda rolled her eyes, then picked up a pillow off the floor and tossed it at him. “Sophie isn’t going to go back to sleep, trust me.”
“I know, I know.” Charlie pushed himself up out of bed and shot a look in her direction. “Tell me again why you decided to work in a business that involves getting up at dawn?”
