Ella’s Ice Cream Summer By: Sue Watson
Release Date 05/11/2017
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.
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.
