I Scream, You Scream - Literary Musings

There's nothing like sitting outside on a warm summer's day eating an ice cream cone. Mind you, it must be a warm day, not hot, or the ice cream will drip all over your hand before you can lick it all up! What flavor would you get? Strawberry? Sea Salt Caramel? Or something more adventurous? Maple Bacon or Wasabi Ginger? Whatever your choice one thing would make this idyllic scene even better; reading a cozy mystery as you enjoy your frozen treat. 

While any mystery, indeed, almost any book, would make for a delightful ice cream companion you might entertain reading a mystery featuring an ice cream shop! I highly recommend the Ice Cream Shop Mystery series by Meri Allen and the Ice Cream Parlor Mystery series by Abby Collette. Years ago I enjoyed the Mystery a la Mode Series by Wendy Lyn Watson and I'm sure you can find many more delightful mysteries serving up ice cream.

A DEADLY INSIDE SCOOP starts off the Ice Cream Parlor Mystery mysteries. Set in picturesque Chagrin Falls, Ohio Bronwyn Crewse reopens her family's ice cream parlor. This book is followed by A GAME OF CONES and A KILLER SUNDAE. Click on the titles to read my reviews.
More recently I discovered the Ice Cream Shop Mystery series. Udderly is a town fixture in Penniman, Connecticut. THE ROCKY ROAD TO RUIN is the first book in the series. The second, MINT CHOCOLATE MURDER was released last week. Be sure to check out the blog Tuesday for my review.
Have you read any mysteries featuring ice cream? What's your favorite flavor? Inquiring minds want to know!
