The owner of a Hudson Valley ice cream shop is out to get the scoop on a hometown homicide in this “decadent, deadly, and delightful” series debut (Jenn McKinlay, New York Times bestselling author).
 

After leaving her high-powered Manhattan life behind, Kate McKay is indulging her dream of opening an ice cream shop in her Upstate New York hometown of Wolfert’s Roost. But her spirits melt when she learns that her childhood frenemy, Ashley Winthrop, has started selling frozen treats in the bakery across the street. Full of sour high school memories, Ashley is more than game for some unfriendly competition.
 
But before Ashley can kill Kate’s new business, someone kills Ashley. And now half the town thinks sweet Kate is hiding a sinister secret. To clear her name, she’ll do whatever it takes to put the real killer on ice—even join forces with an old flame. But she’ll need to exercise more than restraint if she wants to expose the killer and live to see another sundae.
 
“[A] charmer of a cozy mystery. A delicious read that left me hungry for more.”
