Double Scoop of Murder

Double Scoop of Murder


From author Lena Gregory comes a hunt for more than just treasure…

Danika Delany is loving running her uncle’s old fashioned malt shop on eastern Long Island and putting her own modern spin on the treats they serve. Life is finally looking up for her! That is, until local billionaire Maxwell Crumbholtz dies and leaves his fortune in the form of a treasure hunt.

Chaos descends on Watchogue, and Dani and the rest of the gang from the Coffee & Cream Café join the melee when they enter the contest, try to decipher the clues, and go in search of the treasure. But Dani digs up more than she expected when she discovers a dead body buried instead of a treasure!

To make matters worse, a witness claims to have seen Dani at the scene of the murder. Now, instead of a four-billion-dollar payday, Dani is on the hunt for a killer.

The Coffee & Cream Café 

People often ask me about the inspiration for the Coffee & Cream Café. Let me start by saying, I love ice cream. It’s my all-time favorite dessert. The thought of an old-fashioned ice cream parlor on Main Street in a small town brings to mind memories of childhood, when every concert, play, and dance recital ended at the local ice cream shop. It was not only a place to grab dessert, but a venue where local gossip ran rampant.

That being said, what better place to set a cozy mystery series? Watchogue is a fictional town on the south shore of Eastern Long Island, New York (exactly like the one I grew up in). And like many small towns on Long Island, the local businesses are the gossip hot spots. But Danika Delaney wasn’t content to take over her Uncle Jimmie’s failing mom and pop ice cream parlor. She wanted to create her own brand, a place where people could come in after a long day at work, or on their way to school, and kick back. So, the idea for the Coffee & Cream Café was born.

Since I worked at Friendly’s when I was young, as well as my grandfather’s small-town deli, I had a good idea of exactly the atmosphere I was trying to create. Even still, a lot of research goes into writing this series. I research everything from how to make homemade ice cream, to symptoms of cyanide poisoning. (Hopefully, no one will ever check my search history.) The Coffee & Cream Café is the perfect place for locals to relax, catch up on rumors, and discuss murder.
