Introducing the Cozy Mystery Cooking Club
We are so excited to announce a collaboration between That Lemonade Life and Sip + Sanity called the Cozy Mystery Cooking Club! Sarah and I share a love for cozy mysteries and food. We just know there are like-minded readers out there, and we want to meet you.
How Does the Cooking Club Work?
Think of this as a book club with food benefits. Here’s how it works:
- Read the selected foodie cozy mystery
- Make a dish inspired by what the characters cook or eat
- Snap a photo of your dish, post it on the group page & tell us something about it
- Attend the virtual group meeting to discuss the book, the food and have a good time! You can even bring your dish to the meeting.
If you aren’t a cook or just don’t have the time to make something, no worries! Please join us anyway.
We’ll start a new book every 6 weeks – it’s a leisurely read and meant to be relaxing and fun!
How Do I Join the Club?
We’ve created a private Facebook Group for the club. We’ll use that space to post recipes and photos, schedule club events, and share thoughts (no spoilers, though!).
Join the group at any time and jump into the current read or wait for the next.

Ready to Get Started?
We’re kicking things off with the first book from the Ice Cream Parlor Mysteries: A Deadly Inside Scoop by Abby Collette (available at your local library, bookstore and Amazon). Here’s a synopsis:
A Deadly Inside Scoop by Abby Collette
This is the debut mystery in Abby Collette’s new Ice Cream Parlor Mystery series. A lovable cast of characters, intriguing mystery, and delectable descriptions of homemade ice cream make this a super fun read!
A Deadly Inside Scoop takes place in – where else – an ice cream shop, set in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. Bronwyn Crewse has returned home and just finished taking over and renovating her family’s ice cream shop. Delays in construction has meant that her opening day is now in October, but Bronwyn is still positive it will be a success. It’s safe to say however, that her opening day does not go as planned! A freak snowstorm has dumped a foot of snow on the ground, scaring away customers and leaving Bronwyn discouraged and seeking comfort. On her way to grab some clean snow to make a special ice cream, she trips over (literally!) a dead body. As it comes to light who the victim is and what his connection is to Bronwyn’s family, things get tricky! Bronwyn’s own father becomes a suspect, and Bronwyn sets out to clear his name while also running her new business. She knows that her father would never kill someone, so who did? Bronwyn and her friends are sure to find out!
Our first book / recipe discussion will be held on June 16, 8:30 pm. EST. Please join our Facebook Group for all the details. Can’t wait to see you there!
Great idea. If only it meant that meals magically appeared on my dinner table each night. That would be awesome.
Best comment ever! LOL.
I’m in! I love food books 🙂
Can’t wait for our first club meeting!
