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.Read more ›
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".

Very interesting. I realized "whodunnit" as I was reading the reveal, so that was nice. It wasn't too cheesy of a book. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Val
