It's National Ice Cream Month.
I like ice cream, and have since I was a small child. One of my fondest childhood memories was ice cream suppers at a local church where every family brought a churn and churned their favorite flavor. There were always some flavors better than others, but with fifty families with ice cream churns, the variety was infinite.
There is only one person who probably is more fond of ice cream than me, and that is Wendy Lyn Watson.
Advice is always being given to writers to write what they know and Wendy knows ice cream. She even features ice cream recipes on her website.
In fact three of her novels take place where the amateur detective owns an ice cream parlor.
Cousin Bree is accused of murdering egotistical attorney Kristen Ver Steeg in one of the carnival rides. Tally and Finn, her reporter boyfriend, are using their investigative abilities to figure out who wanted Kristen dead—aside from Bree.A variety of family secrets make for some bumps in the ride and keep us guessing as we travel through the investigation. VERDICT: Laugh-out-loud humor and snappy dialog create a perfect read for a summer afternoon.
