Library Journal, STARRED Review

The first in new dessert cozy mystery series! A murder in town is bound to shake things up...

After her divorce from her thrice-married embezzler husband, Trinidad Jones is finally ready for a fresh start. So when she's left one of ex's businesses in Upper Sprocket, Oregon, she decides to pack up her dog, cash in her settlement, and open her dream business: the Shimmy and Shake Shop, introducing the world to her monster milkshakes. And even with a couple sticky situations underway, namely that the other two ex-wives also call Sprocket home, Trinidad's life seems to be churning along smoothly.

That is, until she discovers her neighbor, the Popcorn King, head down in his giant popcorn kettle. When one of Trinidad's fellow ex-wives is accused of the murder and Upper Sprocket descends into mayhem, it's going to take a supersized scoop of courage to flush out the killer.

Nothing better than ice cream

Well-developed characters in a lovely location. Fun storyline with lots of possibilities for the murderer. Papa Luis brings a whole other family level to this charming mystery. But it did make me want some tropical freakshakes for real!

Murder was a cold business indeed.

Someone is feeling careful, very careful.

This simply wonderful mystery will keep you guessing all the way through. The author has done a fabulous job of taking the reader to a small town, where everyone knows everything about all their neighbors....or do they? Trinidad Jones has received the deed to a small shop in the heart of Upper Sprocket, Oregon. Ice cream is on the menu. In fact, a signature shake will bring those customers in, starting with the Fourth of July Freakshake!

Somehow murder sneaks onto the scene and suddenly her tiny, comfortable world changes. Will the perpetrator be caught before more people die? Accidents, assault and robbery just make it even harder to try to get to the bottom of what is going on in this small town. And then there is Noodles, who is there for everyone. Don’t miss this fabulous beginning to what is sure to be a most enjoyable series!
