Donuts in an Empty Field (For the Love of Donuts Book 1)

Donuts in an Empty Field Available NOW!

Donuts in an Empty Field is a young adult novel about two best friends, the local food challenge, and a mysterious bucket list. The more that main character Vanessa fails the food challenge, the more she takes it out on the boy she blames for her father's death because letting go of anger is life's greatest challenge.

Local Donut Shop Review

Family Donuts

Review criteria:
Most popular donut at the shop:NA
Signature shop donut: NA
Most popular US donut: glazed
2nd most popular US donut: Boston crème
Donut Hole: Glazed $2.00/doz
What I tried:
Glazed Twist, Boston Creme, Donut Holes
$4.15 total

 What to expect:
the glazed donut holes looked exceptionally nice but the glaze/donut tasted mildly chalky lke they weren’t made from fresh oil. The boston crème definitely tastes like there’s something flavoring the oil they cook the donuts in. I’m not a fan.
My favorite:I wasn’t impressed with this donut shop.
