A Killer Sundae - A Review & Giveaway


A KILLER SUNDAE by Abby Collette
The Third Ice Cream Parlor Mystery 
Chagrin Falls, Ohio is gearing up for its Harvest Time Festival and Bronwyn Crewse is ready to roll out her new food truck. Win is surprised when her old high school "friend" and current news reporter Kaitlyn Toles offers to do a spotlight to support her business, and not so surprised when her chief high school competitor Cameron offers snarky comments instead. When Kailyn is found dead at the festival that night, Cameron screams that Win killed her. Even thinking it must have been an accident and knowing she didn't serve her anything with nuts, Win is still racked with guilt. Although it's soon determined that Kaitlyn's nut allergy didn't kill her, someone certainly did and once again Win is involved with murder.

Our reluctant sleuth is at it again. I think that's what I like most about Win. She has no desire to investigate and is happy to leave the sleuthing to the police, a sentiment most people should have. Of course her friends want to poke into matters, and even Cameron, for once, seems to want to work with her not against her. The fun part is Win's innate curiosity about periphery matters lands her right in the middle of things. Although she's determined not to face down a killer...once again she's face to face with one.

A KILLER SUNDAE had me dreaming of ice cream flavors in the middle of winter as I wondered just who killed the TV reporter. Fun characters, family loyalty, and a variety of suspects combined with lip smacking ice cream flavors make this a mouth watering mystery.

Ice cream shop owner Bronwyn Crewse is in for two scoops of murder in this charming mystery from Abby Collette.

Chagrin Falls, Ohio, is gorgeous in the fall, and Bronwyn Crewse, owner of Crewse Creamery, knows just how to welcome the new season. At the annual Harvest Time Festival, residents will get a chance to enjoy hot-air balloons and hayrides, crown a new Harvest Time Festival Queen, and eat delicious frozen treats sold at Win’s freshly purchased ice cream truck. But she gets into a sprinkle of trouble when a festivalgoer is poisoned and Win is implicated.

Although the victim was a former Harvest Time Festival Queen, her once-sunny disposition had dimmed into bitterness, leaving no shortage of suspects at the festival. To clear her name before the chill of winter sets in, Win will have to investigate and hope that her detective skills won’t “dessert” her.
