Who’d Kill for Ice Cream??

I like ice cream, just like everyone else, but never once would I ever consider killing for it. And then, dumping the frozen treat in a dumpster aftward? Yet, that’s what’s happening to Zack in Pomme Valley. Someone broke into Cookbook Nook, stole Jillian’s ice cream, then promptly dumped it in a nearby dumpster. Then, compounding matters, the thief who pulled off the heist turns up dead!

Determined to prove they’re smarter than a pair of dogs, a nearby police department places a wager as to who can solve the crime first. As for the loser, there will be humiliations galore.

Everyone’s favorite crime-fighting duo, Sherlock and Watson, are on the case! In their usual fashion, the dogs pick out a number of unusual clues, and it’s up to Zack and his friends to decipher the meaning, catch the bad guys, and win the wager. May the best department win!

  • Hello Marjolaine! Thanks for taking the time to reach out! I'm so very glad you enjoyed Case of the Ice Cream Crime. My wife and I heard the words "ice cream" and then "crime" in the same sentence and thought it'd make a great title for a story. 🙂

    As for creating a cross-over story, where Steve & Sarah meet up with Zack & Jillian, or vice versa, has been met with a lot of positive reviews. There's still nothing set in stone, but it is definitely looking more encouraging! I'm going to have to try and come up with a plausible plot that would encompass everyone! Fingers crossed!

    Again, thanks for reachout out! Have a great week!


  • Dear Mr. Poole,
    I just finished reading or should I say devour ‘Who’d kill for ice cream’ and it was as thrilling as the first book I have ever read from you. I bought them all, read them all several times, with as much delight as the first time. You make my day every single time and I cannot get enough. I’m always looking forward to the next one and am anticipating with relish Blast from the past.
    As for getting our 2 couples together for an adventure, I can just imagine all the mischief and mayhem those 4 could create. Please please ‘’make it so’’.
    Thank you so much for gifting us with hours of reading pleasure.
