A Deadly Inside Scoop is a great start to this new series! Trust me; you’ll be craving the many flavors of ice cream that Win and company make at Crewse Creamery.

I haven’t had so much fun reading a book in so long! A Deadly Inside Scoop has some genuinely sweet and laugh out loud moments. It’s down to earth and not a zany adventure.

A Deadly Inside Scoop is a truly tasty debut for this series. It strikes all my cozy boxes and then some. It also has recipes in the back of the book!!! For these reasons and more, this book will be on my Best Reads List of 2020. I am craving Book 2!!
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

It’s hard not to root for Win as she pursues her dreams and the good memories. And if proving her father or mother didn’t kill the man who took advantage, then she and her friends will do so. This was a fun read.
~Christa Reads and Writes

A DEADLY INSIDE SCOOP is a winner! Laugh out loud scenes mix with heartfelt moments to create a charming funny mystery.
~Cozy Up With Kathy

Deadly Inside Scoop is an upbeat cozy mystery with creamy cold concoctions, greenhorn gumshoes, significant snowfall, a mystery man, a precious puppy, and carcinogenic killer.
~The Avid Reader

While the characters were my favorite part of A Deadly Inside Scoop, the mystery was challenging too. Plus it has four recipes for ice cream: snow, cherry chocolate chunk amaretto, pumpkin spice roll, and caramel corn. With cold ice cream, warm family relationships, and a hot mystery to solve, this is a cozy mystery you will love!
~Diane Reviews Books

The mystery is well thought out and while there are several characters to suspect of being the killer, the true killer might come as a surprise. I know I didn’t suspect this person but thought there was something strange about their actions. Now we know why!
~Storeybook Reviews

A fantastic start to what is going to be a wonderful culinary cozy . . . Smooth writing that really brings the story to life while taking the reader along for the ride. Made for a great mystery.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews

I’m screaming over A DEADLY INSIDE SCOOP! This refreshing first in the Ice Cream Parlor Mysteries was just the delicious mystery I was looking for.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews

A Deadly Inside Scoop is a fun start to a new series with diverse characters, a strong sense of family & community, and – of course – yummy ice cream!

This book kicks off a charming cozy mystery series set in an ice cream shop—with a fabulous cast of quirky characters.


Recent MBA grad Bronwyn Crewse has just taken over her family’s ice cream shop in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and she’s going back to basics. Win is renovating Crewse Creamery to restore its former glory, and filling the menu with delicious, homemade ice cream flavors—many from her grandmother’s original recipes. But unexpected construction delays mean she misses the summer season, and the shop has a literal cold opening: the day she opens her doors an early first snow descends on the village and keeps the customers away.


To make matters worse, that evening, Win finds a body in the snow, and it turns out the dead man was a grifter with an old feud with the Crewse family. Soon, Win’s father is implicated in his death. It’s not easy to juggle a new-to-her business while solving a crime, but Win is determined to do it. With the help of her quirky best friends and her tight-knit family, she’ll catch the ice cold killer before she has a meltdown…
