I'm excited to be a stop on the book tour for
Book 1 in the Ice Cream Parlor Mysteries
by Abby Collette

This book kicks off a charming cozy mystery series set in an ice cream shop—with a fabulous cast of quirky characters.

Recent MBA grad Bronwyn Crewse has just taken over her family's ice cream shop in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and she's going back to basics. Win is renovating Crewse Creamery to restore its former glory, and filling the menu with delicious, homemade ice cream flavors—many from her grandmother’s original recipes. But unexpected construction delays mean she misses the summer season, and the shop has a literal cold opening: the day she opens her doors an early first snow descends on the village and keeps the customers away.

To make matters worse, that evening, Win finds a body in the snow, and it turns out the dead man was a grifter with an old feud with the Crewse family. Soon, Win’s father is implicated in his death. It's not easy to juggle a new-to-her business while solving a crime, but Win is determined to do it. With the help of her quirky best friends and her tight-knit family, she'll catch the ice cold killer before she has a meltdown...

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! And I’m screaming over A DEADLY INSIDE SCOOP! This refreshing first in the Ice Cream Parlor Mysteries was just the delicious mystery I was looking for.

In A DEADLY INSIDE SCOOP, author Abby Collette, has gifted us with a new protagonist, Win, who is absolutely delightful. The first few pages of the book sold me on her right away, and had me smiling. What followed those first pages was a book I couldn’t put down until I had finished every lick, um, page.

The mystery aspect of this story was very well done. Author Collette had my brain working overtime as I tried to solve this one. I was close a couple of times, but in the end, I was so surprised, that I hasn’t seen the answer coming. 

I give A DEADLY INSIDE SCOOP 5 scoops for intrigue, fun, and drool factor. I can’t wait for seconds in this cool, tasty series
