In this exciting book, Orange Cream Dreams and Murderous Schemes: One Scoop or Two, author D M Grant introduces us to a poor little rich girl, Callie Clark, who is trying to stand on her own two feet by opening an ice cream shack on the grounds surrounding Chocolate Lake, which is owned by her father Zander Clark, who also owns the only law firm in the area. Callie’s helper and ice cream flavor inventor Alan Garland, a retired bank manager, is shot dead. When Callie discovers Alan’s dead body, her screams are heard by Dean Lowry, the lake's groundskeeper who is attracted to Callie. When Sheriff Jack Harwell arrives, he declares the area a crime scene. However, Callie is determined to open her new business so she takes on a young student, Zachary, as a helper and a new ice cream flavor inventor. Read this intriguing story about murder intertwined with a secret love interest and see how things develop.
D M Grant takes you on a journey to a world of mystery and intrigue in this extremely well-written book. The author develops the story in a very easy-going manner while she introduces the different characters and gives some background information about the people involved, their likes and dislikes, and thought processes so you, the reader, have an attachment to the individual characters. The twists and turns as the story develops make you formulate opinions on who is possibly the guilty party, whether true love will flourish, or will the chasm between the haves and the have-nots defeat true love. The murder plot is seamlessly intertwined with a love story that may or may not succeed, which keeps you not only interested but entertained, and the murderer is kept hidden until the end. I really enjoyed reading Orange Cream Dreams and Murderous Schemes!
