Celebrate National Ice Cream Month With An Ice Cream and A Book

 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.

Her latest novel A PARFAIT MURDER is a perfect blend of mystery heaped up with a scoop of humor, served by the funniest characters you'll see this summer. It went on sale  June, 2011.

Hot August nights of Texas and the Lantana County Fair bring back Tallulah (Tally) Jones and her wacky small-town  group from Scoop To Kill.When Tally’s cousin Bree spots her deadbeat ex-husband strolling the Lantana County Fair with a fat wallet and a vixen on his arm, she immediately files for back child support. But when his lawyer is found dead, things get a little sticky. Did Bree serve up a dish of cold, sweet revenge? Or is she another hapless victim of a parfait crime?

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.

My favorite ice cream is strawberry from the Marble Slab Creamery or fresh homemade peach ice cream. Good luck on the book and thanks for the recipes for the hot spicy ice cream.

Hi Wendy:
Your book is really fun! I love ice cream-- any kind except chocolate, but I do like chocolate syrup on vanilla ice cream. crazy isn't it.

Oh hey, Wendy, just stumbled over here and here you are. I loved the first Tally books so this is probably great as well.
