April 27th's Can't Wait Wednesday

It's Wednesday, and I'm back with another Can't Wait Wednesday.

This week, I'm featuring A Sprinkle in Time, the second Shake Shop Mystery from Dana Mentink.

I love ice cream, so what's not to love about a mystery series set in a shake shop?  Plus, it's set in Oregon, and I love finding cozies set on the west coast since so many focus on the east coast.

Here's the official description:

The second book in the Shake Shop Mysteries—a new murder in town has Trinidad Jones thrown for a scoop!

It's Alpenfest in Upper Sprocket! Yodelers are congregating in the square, tourists flocking to the town, and Trinidad Jones is scooping up some fall flavors at her Shimmy and Shake Shop.

The cherry on the sundae is her upcoming feature in The Scoop magazine. She's determined to serve up the perfect interview, but it won't be easy, thanks in part to her meddling Cuban grandfather Papa Luis who has decided to make Sprocket his home for the foreseeable future. Papa Luis has set himself up as a taxi driver in his classic 1951 Buick.

But things take a turn when Papa Luis tells her he's found a corpse in his trunk. Upon closer investigation, they realize the body has disappeared. With the assistance of Juliette and Bonnie (her sisterhood of exes) and the way too handsome nut farmer Quinn Logan, Trinidad must solve the mystery of the disappearing corpse, before her father is up to his neck in a murderous mess.

I enjoyed the first in the series when I read it last year.  Hopefully, this one will be good, too.  It comes out May 24th, so I don't have long to wait.
