Publisher's Summary

Kate McKay had doubts about swapping her high-powered life in Manhattan for Wolfert's Roost, the quaint Hudson Valley village where she grew up. But when she moves back to care for her ailing grandmother, Kate decides to start fresh and indulge her dream of running an ice-cream shop.

But as Lickety Splits Ice Cream Shoppe becomes a reality, her childhood frenemy, Ashley Winthrop, starts selling frozen treats in the bakery across the street. After the two rivals draw crowds with a heated argument, Ashley is found stabbed to death inside the bakery, leaving half of Wolfert's Roost speculating that Kate was finally pushed over the edge....

With rumors swirling and her reputation in serious trouble, Kate is determined to get the real scoop on the crime - even if it means joining forces with a former flame. As she pieces together the clues, Kate realizes that she'll need way more than a sprinkle of wit if she wants to expose the killer and live to see another sundae....

Pretty Good

This is a pretty good mystery. Rebecca Mitchell is a good narrator who does a good job bringing the characters to life. The pacing in the beginning is very slow. Baxter spends a lot time giving the history of the town and the backstory between Ashley and Kate. Once I got past that the story was ok and flowed nicely. I'll get the next book in this series.

LOVE THIS NEW SERIES

An ice cream shop! This is a refreshing change from bakeries. I do see lots of promise for the characters introduced in this first book. I cannot wait to see whereKate, Jake, Emma, and Grams go from here.
