A Hudson Valley ice cream maker trades scooping for snooping when a famous fashion designer is murdered in her town in this “sweet treat for cozy lovers” (Publishers Weekly).
Kate McKay has been living the sweet life ever since she opened Lickety Splits Ice Cream Shoppe in Upstate New York. Now she’s taking business to the next level, whipping up sundaes for a swanky soiree hosted by fashion designer Omar DeVane. Kate is immediately intimidated by the mogul’s mansion and his handler’s frosty attitudes. But the party takes an even more chilling turn when Omar is murdered.
With journalists flocking to her sleepy village and the scandal keeping customers away from her shop, Kate knows her life won’t return to normal until Omar’s killer is brought to justice. But as she navigates the fashion world to search for clues, she might just wind up with a double helping of trouble.
Includes mouthwatering ice cream recipes from the Lickety Splits Ice Cream Shoppe!
At the start of Baxter's frothy second Lickety Splits Ice Cream Shoppe mystery (after 2018's Murder with a Cherry on Top), Kate McKay, the owner of Lickety Splits Ice Cream Shoppe in Wolfert's Roost, N.Y., is thrilled when famous fashion designer Omar DeVane asks her to provide hot fudge sundaes for 75 at a weekend retreat that he's hosting for the glitterati at his mansion. Kate's joy is as short-lived as the party itself after Omar is found strangled with his own necktie. Kate fears that such a high-profile unsolved murder will kill business in her little tourist town, a frightening prospect for a first-time entrepreneur, so she vows to try to track down Omar's killer. The perfect opportunity to investigate arises when she's hired to cater the memorial service, and between scooping ice cream and snooping, Kate uncovers the perfect motive for murder. A picturesque Hudson Valley town, a couple of requisite hunks who vie for the heroine's affections, plus gallons of ice cream trivia add up to a sweet treat for cozy lovers.)\n
