Review: Ella’s Ice Cream Summer

Ella’s Ice Cream Summer By: Sue Watson

Release Date 05/11/2017

Goodreads 34595538

Ella’s life just hit rock-bottom, but can a summer by the sea mend her broken heart? When life gives you lemons… make ice-cream!

Life hasn’t always been easy for single mum Ella, but she has just hit an all-time low; she’s jobless, loveless, very nearly homeless and, to make matters worse, now the owner of a pocket-sized pooch with a better wardrobe than her.

Packing her bags (and a bigger one for the dog), Ella sets off for the seaside town of Appledore in Devon to re-live the magical summers of her youth and claim her portion of the family ice-cream business: a clapped-out ice-cream van and a complicated mess of secrets.

There she meets gorgeous and free-spirited solicitor, Ben, who sees things differently: with a little bit of TLC he has a plan to get the van – and Ella – back up and running in no time.

Ella’s Ice-Cream Summer is a heart-warming and hilarious romance that will scoop you off your feet and prove it’s never too late for a fresh start. The ideal holiday read for fans of Lucy Diamond, Abby Clements and Debbie Johnson.

My Review

This is the first book by this author that I have read.  I received this ARC in exchange for my honest review.  With that being said, I would say I enjoyed this book.  The author wrote this book in UK lingo.  So some of the words I was a little unclear of the meaning.  I love reading books like that though.  This book was warm and heart felt.  The lead character of the story Ella has a lot on her plate.  Her children are grown and going off to new adventures, her mother lives with her, her ex-husband is a pain and she inherits an ice cream truck.  Ella decides she wants a new take on life and packs up and moves to run the ice cream truck and have a stress free summer.  There is a big mystery to unravel.  This book tells of love, heart break, family feuds and joy.  The book is well written and flows well, even though I found it a tiny bit slow.  The characters have very deep meaning and souls.  The sex scenes are not raunchy but rather a PG_13 style.  They leave some imagination to it.  I definitely would read more from this author.  I would recommend this book to the cozy reader.  I give it 4 stars.small star 2
