Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Watson (A Dark Day for a White Wedding) launches a flavorful cozy mystery series about Tallulah Jones, who struggles to keep her ice cream parlor afloat while dealing with the failure of her 17-year marriage to smarmy entrepreneur Wayne Jones. Swallowing her pride, Tally caters dessert at Wayne's annual luau, but his trashy girlfriend, Brittanie, keels over from poison in specially marked containers of ice cream sauce. Determined to clear her name, Tally probes the gossipy social circles of Dalliance, Tex., where it seems everyone had a reason to hate Brittanie. The return to town of newspaper reporter Finn Harper, the high school flame Tally once dumped for Wayne, only complicates the situation. This lighthearted peek into smalltown secrets and rumors carries enough good humor, emotional honesty, plot twists and recipes to entertain and satisfy. (Oct.)

About the Author

Wendy Lyn Watson doesn’t commit—or solve—murders in her real life, but her passion for ice cream is 100% true. She’s also a devotee of ’80s music, Asian horror films, and reality TV. While Wendy is a native Buckeye and has called a half dozen states “home,” she and her husband now live a stone’s throw from the courthouse square in a north Texas town, in their very own crumbling, historic house.

More About the Author

Wendy Lyn Watson writes mysteries of all types: contemporary, historical, and cozy. Whatever the time or the tone, her mysteries always feature a dose of humor and a dollop of romance. Her first cozy series, the Mysteries a la Mode, feature the owner of an ice cream parlor in a small Texas town. Once Upon a Wallflower, due to be released in August of 2013, is a Regency-set romantic mystery. While Wendy does not commit (or solve) mysteries in real life, she can kill a pint of ice cream in nothing flat. She also enjoys 80s music, Asian horror films, quilting, and vegetarian cooking. While she was born in Ohio and has called half a dozen states home, she currently lives in a college town in North Texas along with her husband and their three cats (Iphy, Squeak-a-Doodle, and Todd Baryshnikov). She loves to hear from readers, so find her on Facebook at @wendylynwatsonauthor.

The secondary characters are very well-written and added a lot of fun to the story.

Just finished this fun read. A perfect stocking stuffer for family and friends or a fun beach read if you're not in chilly New England like I am. The characters are engaging, Watson made me care about and root for the main character from the start. Without that, I can't get into a book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The cover from "I scream, you scream" by Wendy Lyn Watson promises a light-hearted and entertaining book and that's exactly what you get.

Tallulah Jones is happy with her life even though it's way more complicated than it was for a long time. After getting rid of her cheating ex-husband Wayne it's finally time to live her own life. So Tally bought her own home and her own little ice-cream parlor and life could be great. But when her ex-husband's new girlfriend Brittanie is murdered and the boy (Finn, now one sexy as hell man) she once loved comes back into her life it start's to get really complicated.
So instead of enjoying her new life Tally begins to investigate the murder of Brittanie, because her ex Wayne may be a cheating bastard but he is no murderer.

I read "I scream, you scream" when I was sick and in need to be entertained. And that's exactly what this book did.
The heroine Tally is just awesome. She is like a butterfly. After 18 years of marriage to one guy she finally realizes that she has the chance to change her life the way she wants to. She is honest, very likable and a bit unsure about who she really is. It's great to accompany her on the journy to learn more about her own wishes and dreams. I especially enjoyed about Tally that she realizes that it's time to move on and that looking back to the mistakes she made (like breaking up with Finn) is no use. That Finn is back into her life and that there may be a future for them is also very exciting.
Finn is a very interesting character and the future will show if he is the man for Tally.
The secondary characters are very well-written and added a lot of fun to the story. Even the more shadier characters are interesting and sometimes even sweet.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I picked up this book for myself while shopping for Christmas presents last year and I'm so glad I did. I loved it. I'm a busy working mom of 2 and need something that doesn't require too much energy to keep up with the plot. My only time to read is right before bed so I like mysteries that are still lighthearted and fun. This book fit all of those requirements. I love murder mysteries and this one has a bit of a romantic twist in it which made it cute. I loved Watson's writing style and sense of humor. I'm looking forward to reading more adventures with Tallulah Jones and her ice cream shop!

I found this book and I like the concept that Tally is dealing with ex-husband, opening up an ice cream shop, ex-high school boyfriend shows up and then MURDER. Tally is a `person of interest' in the murder and decides to find the killer on her own - it was great! The blurb on the back got me and the story was fun and I didn't not figure out the killer until it was exposed. Can't believe she is a debut author - off to add her next book to my wish list Scoop to Kill: A Mystery a La Mode due out Sep 7, 2010

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Dalliance, Texas, recently divorced Tallulah "Tally" Jones is worried that business is down at her ice cream store Remember the A La Mode. That is the only reason she agreed to provide the dessert for her former husband's annual party for people connected to Wayne's Weed and Seed. She has no fond feelings towards the man she was married to for seventeen years as her spouse ran around until he dumped her for a twenty something beautiful man-ater Brittanie.

At the gala, almost all the attendees are intoxicated including the babe Brittanie. The very next day Wayne comes to Tally's house because Brittanie died in his bed and he needs his former wife to tell the cops he was with her last night. Tally refuses to lie, bur ponders who might have wanted her dead. The cops find antifreeze in cups that Tally made especially for Wayne. Tally goes from bystander to prime suspect as she has motive, means, and opportunity to eliminate her rival. To stay out of jail, Tally investigates Brittanie's life, which means scooping up the town's dirt.

This is a delightful amateur sleuth that is not only exciting, but also never melts down. Tally is complex especially when it comes to Wayne who she pities. The reason for the homicide is very sad as Wendy Lyn Watson makes a case that anyone could be a killer if the circumstances warrant it. With a light touch mostly brought by friend Bree who sums up the enjoyable I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM while serving ice cream with "pick your poison".

I absolutely LOVE Tally and her entire, whacky family. I even feel somewhat endeared toward Wayne the Pain at time. Excellent writing from an excellent author, I truly can't wait to read the next book! This is a MUST READ.
