In A Game of Cones, Browyn is the manager of her family-owned ice cream shop in small town Chagrin Falls, Ohio. During a town meeting, a big city real estate developer mentions his plans to build a vertical mall in the historic town triangle. Later that day, he is found dead.
Almost all of the local store owners have a motive. Bronwyn is convinced by her best friend, Maisie, to solve the mystery. After all, Maisie has watched every amateur detective show on Acorn TV. She’s ready to use those skills in real life!
I just love the characters in this cozy mystery series. I loved the first book, A Deadly Inside Scoop, just as much. The mystery was more challenging this time. But best friends since elementary school, Maisie, Bronwyn and Riya, are up to the challenge. In this book, there are two ice cream and one sorbet recipes to make at home as well.
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!
And now it’s time to make Win’s Easy Summer Mango Sorbet. In my case, the vodka is not optional. Yum!
Thanks to Berkley Books, Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours, and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.

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.
