Murder with a Cherry on Top (2018)

Cynthia Baxter
"Murder with a Cherry on Top is a sweet treat. I loved everything about the Hudson Valley setting, from the small-town ice cream shop to the organic cows. Cynthia Baxter's characters feel real enough to touch and her descriptions are mouthwatering. This book is best read with a spoon and a tub of ice cream nearby."
