A Deadly Inside Scoop
An Ice Cream Parlor Mystery Book 1
by Abby Collette
Genre: Cozy Mystery
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…

REVIEW

A small town cozy mystery, featuring an ice cream parlour is a first for me and after reading this book I discovered there is a whole niche for this type!

Bronwyn ‘Win’ Crewse has refurbished and reopening her family’s iconic ice cream shop taking it back to its roots and selling only ice cream and nothing else. Due to set backs the stores opening had to moved back to October, and the start of the cold months.

Who wants to buy ice cream during the winter you might ask? But she does get a few customers upon opening, and she knows it’s going 5o be heard going but she is determined to make it work. One evening she is looking through her late grandmother’s ice cream recipies and comes across one using fresh fallen snow, she gets the idea to head to the falls and collect some but she gets more than she bargains for when she discovers the dead body of a man!

Small town murder is not something that happens very often, and naturally the residents are shocked, but when the detective starts to look at Wins father as a suspect she does her best at armature sleuthing to find the real culprit.

I loved the setting around the ice cream parlour, and look forward to reading more in this series.
