The Lantana County Fair has come to town, and Tally Jones has scored a plum spot as a judge on one of the tasting panels. With her business warming up and her love life positively molten, Tally’s life feels like three scoops in a two-scoop cone.
But when her cousin Bree spots her no-good ex strutting across the fairgrounds like he owns the place with a wad of cash in his pocket and a fancy woman on his arm, the situation gets sticky.
After a livid Bree files for over a decade of back child support, her ex’s attorney ends up dead…with Bree standing over the body with a gun.
It is up to Tally to clear her cousin’s name or watch everyone’s happiness melt away.

A PARFAIT MURDER by Wendy Lyn Watson | A Henery Press Mystery. If you like one, you’ll probably like them all.
“Wendy Lyn Watson? She writes damn good prose. Her descriptions are vibrant, but not in the least bit florid. Her dialogue sparkles. And the images she paints are so vivid, they practically spring to mind fully formed.” — Criminal Element
“A Parfait Murder is the cozy mystery at its best–complex characters, family drama, a hint of romance, and a mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end.” — Fresh Fiction
Despite some serious temptation, the only thing Wendy Lyn Watson has killed so far is a pint of ice cream. Well, pints. Plural. A lot of them.
When she isn’t tasting her way from chai ginger chip to balsamic strawberry to Mexican vanilla, Wendy teaches American government and constitutional law to college students. She lives in a completely neglected historic home in North Texas with the most patient man in the world and the Tabby Congress (Tiberius, Blaze, and Squeak-a-Doodle). Between teaching, writing, volunteering with the Modified Dolls, and more, life is busy but the cherry on every single sundae.
