After her divorce from her thrice-married embezzler husband, Trinidad Jones is finally ready for a fresh start. So when she's left one of ex's businesses in Upper Sprocket, Oregon, she decides to pack up her dog, cash in her settlement, and open her dream business: the Shimmy and Shake Shop, introducing the world to her monster milkshakes. And even with a couple sticky situations underway, namely that the other two ex-wives also call Sprocket home, Trinidad's life seems to be churning along smoothly.

"Dana Mentink's series starter, Pint of No Return, takes palce in a neighborhood common to cozies: a nice town full of good people, if you don't count all the lying theft, and murder. Noodles, Trinidad's service-dog dropout knows he should help but does so in adorably wrong ways, is likely to become a fan favorite." — BookPage
