It's time for the Lantana County Fair and Tally's cousin Bree is manning the A La Mode booth when she spots her ex-husband walking through the midway with a thick wallet and a babe on his arm.  Bree is beyond mad, this man left her "high and dry" with an infant to raise and no financial support whatsoever.  She decides it is time to sue for Child Support. Then her ex serves her with paternity papers asking her to prove her daughter is really his.

Bree gets into a sticky situation when she meets with her exes lawyer on the Haunted Rodeo ride at the fair when shots ring out and the lawyer is dead and Bree is found holding a gun.  So now is Bree is suspected of murder, confused about her daughter's paternity and knows the only reason he ex would come back to Dalliance is if he is running a scam.

So Tally has her hands full running her store, running the booth at the fair, judging the food competitions at the fair, now she may also be losing her boyfriend, is taking care of Bree's daughter and helping her understand what is going on, but she also has to prove Bree is not a killer.  Tally may be an ice cream expert but she is going to need a little help from her friends to get the scoop on who really killed the lawyer and churn out who is really behind the scam that brought all this sandal to the county fair.

Wendy Lyn Watson's stories are a joy to read and always lead to me sending someone out for ice cream. 

I love the characters, the way she sets the scene and the way she churns together mystery, romance and humor. There is just one scoop after another scoop of pure elation.  Her books are one of my true guilty pleasures and she always leaves me want more.

Get the scoop on this wonderful series today!!  The whole series is a super sweet tasty treat.  Thankfully the stories do not melt away!!!

You can never have too many cozy mystery days for me :) I have this series in my TBR and haven't started it yet, but it looks like the perfect one for the summer.
