(Published by OBSIDIAN MYSTERY, an imprint of the Penguin Group)

This is the latest in the mystery a' la Mode series featuring Tallulah Jones. I enjoy Wendy's work. This is a "cozy mystery", but with enough plot to keep the reader interested and turning pages. I like to escape and a book like this one lets me dive head first into "small town Texas."

Tallulah "Tally" Jones is the owner of an ice cream parlor, Remember The A' La Mode, in Dalliance, Texas. A small town by any one's description. Tally finds herself with dead bodies and a love life that's as complicated as a homicide investigation.

In the latest novel, Tally's niece, Alice stumbles upon the body of a graduate student during the annual Honor's Day festivities. Suspicion immediately falls on a female English professor, Emily Cowper, but the body count continues to rise and it's a double dip of murder!

Wendy also uses some delightful recipes in the novels. She is a real ice cream lover and the recipes are given in the book. I think I will try a couple and let you know how I do!
