Lexy Baker is catering an event for a high-end client, who requested homemade ice cream for dessert. Yum!
But then the 100-year old honoree suddenly face-plants into his bowl of ice cream. The Ladies Detective Club, which Lexy’s grandmother is a part of, suspects murder. Cause of death: allergic reaction to something in the ice cream. Death by ice cream. What a way to go.
Since Lexy couldn’t afford to be dubbed the Killer Caterer (it’s bad for business,) she decides to join the investigation with the old ladies.
It turns out that motive behind the old man’s death could be money and any one of this money-grubbing heirs could’ve done it.
A quick, cozy mystery. There were too many suspects and sometimes the ladies were too nosy in the investigation. But this was an ok read.
