A Deadly Inside Scoop review

This is the first book in a brand new series by Abby Collette, who some may recognize as Abby L. Vandiver who writes the Logan Dickerson, Tiny House and Romaine Wilder series. Having not had a chance yet to enjoy these series, I was very happy to get the chance to read this book where I discovered some new favorite characters. Ice cream in winter time? Bring it on! Thanks to Abby herself and Berkley Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book from NetGalley!

My Goodreads review:

A Deadly Inside Scoop (An Ice Cream Parlor Mystery Book 1)A Deadly Inside Scoop by Abby Collette

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was an awesome first for this new series, and I really love these characters! I think my faves were Maisie and PopPop. It was hilarious to read about Win and Maisie sleuthing together with sensible, non-risk taking Win trying her best to keep Maisie out of trouble. When their other bestie Riya joined in and beat up a guy, sleuthing was just taken to a new level with them. PopPop made a good ice cream shop helper, since he’d founded the place to begin with, but he was also a pretty good snooping partner and drove Win to where he felt like she needed to ask questions.

A few clues toward the end led me to think about guessing who the killer was, and I was on the right track. The showdown was a good one, and PopPop got to help too. I was so happy to see the ice cream shop’s success under Win’s new management and that a sleuth came home for once just because she wanted to be with her family, not to escape some loser guy she’d broken up with or divorced. I’m anxious to see what other adventures Win and her friends and family get into.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own. The book releases this Tuesday, May 12, 2020.
