A Game of Cones (An Ice Cream Parlor Mystery)
by Abby Collette

I love the diverse characters, spanning a variety of ethnicities and cultures, and the combination of several different, strong (and quirky) personalities. I also love that it’s set in a Black owned business in a charming small town – and the yummy ice cream Win creates doesn’t hurt either!
~Reading Is My SuperPower

I loved the plot. The characters were all engaging and funny in their own right. They all complemented each other.
~Lori for Novels Alive

A Game of Cones is equal parts murder mystery and family drama, with a healthy sprinkle of humor. Colette’s cast of ethnically and age diverse characters are quirky and interesting, and the setting is appealing . . .
~Book Club Librarian

A Game of Cones was an absolutely delightful treat . . . This mystery was well-thought out and was a breath of fresh air for me.
~Moonlight Rendezvous

The plot and storyline was easily read making this one a page-turner.
~My Reading Journeys

If you are looking for a fun small town mystery to solve filled with genuine and ethnically diverse characters plus family-first values, you must read A Game of Cones. 5 out of 5 stars!
~Diane Reviews Books

. . . These core characters are so well crafted. Diverse and engaging, with very believable family dynamics, these are characters I love after just 2 books in the series.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

It seems that in this story, Win is trying her best to do the right thing, but her co-worker Maisie just seems to complicate things everywhere they go. There’s an interesting twist at the end, and now I’m looking forward to the next book in the series when it comes out.
~Literary Gold

A GAME OF CONES is a fun mystery celebrating friends and family. I enjoy the close family relationships, the laughter, and the ice cream, and I can’t wait to return to Chagrin Falls.
~Cozy Up With Kathy

Witty with the right amount of humor and smartly written . . .
~Ms. Cat’s Honest World

One of my favourite aspects of A Game of Cones is Win’s family and their closeness including her wise, overprotective granddad, referred to as PopPop, and her supportive parents and it’s a delight to observe their interactions.
~Brianne’s Book Reviews

I had kinda figured out who had done it fairly early on, but that didn’t distract me from the story as I really enjoyed daydreaming about all these delicious new ice cream flavours that Win was coming up with – FYI there are some amazing recipes at the end of the book!

In this charming mystery series set in an ice cream shop, no case is too cold to crack!


Bronwyn Crewse is delighted that Crewse Creamery, the ice cream shop her family has owned for decades, is restored to its former glory and serving sweet frozen treats to happy customers in the picturesque small town of Chagrin Falls, Ohio. But when a big city developer comes to town intent on building a mall, a killer with a frozen heart takes him out.


After literally stumbling across the body, one of Win’s closest friends becomes the prime suspect, and to make things worse, Win’s aunt has come to town with the intention of taking command of Crewse Creamery. Even though Win has a rocky road ahead to help her friend and keep her ice cream shop, it’ll take more than a sprinkle of murder to stop her from solving the crime and saving the day.
