In Wendy Lyn Watson's I Scream, You Scream, the first book in the Mystery A La Mode series, someone didn't really scream out loud for ice cream. For Tallulah "Tally" Jones, she wounded up with that predicament. She lived in her grandma's home and worked at her own ice cream parlor in a small town in Texas. Recently divorced from her husband, she no longer lived in the lap of luxury. When her ex and his new squeeze, someone much younger than her, asked her to cater ice cream at his company's luau picnic, she'd gotten much more than she bargained for. His new flame accused him of flirting with Tally and had a row with her, later she wounded up dead. And that placed Wayne and herself on the hot seat. To clear both their names, she did some digging of her own on who wanted her dead and learned some shocking revelations. Things do heat up with her former flame, Finn Harper, when new sparks fly between then. When she discovered who was the culprit, she came close to become the newest victim on the list.
This was a delightful introduction to the culinary cozy series featuring ice cream recipes. I liked Tally and her sister and her niece Alice. I didn't like Brittany for awhile. I cared for Tally and her feelings for Wayne, when she helped to clear his name. Even if she had to go undercover for it, she became close to the killer itself. I loved the ice cream flavors as well. But Finn, he was an interesting catch for Tally.
