When Imogen and Anna unexpectedly inherit their grandmother Vivien's ice cream parlour, it turns both their lives upside-down. The Brighton shop is a seafront institution, but while it's big on charm it's critically low on customers. If the sisters don't turn things around quickly, their grandmother's legacy will disappear forever.
With summer looming, Imogen and Anna devise a plan to return Vivien's to its former glory. Rather than sell up, they will train up, and make the parlour the newest destination on the South Coast foodie map. While Imogen watches the shop, her sister flies to Italy to attend a gourmet ice-cream-making course. But as she works shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the best chefs in the industry, Anna finds that romance can bloom in the most unexpected of places....

Half hearted

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I'm a sucker for romance even the predictable stuff but perhaps this would better suit someone who doesn't care at all for realism. Use your last £500 to buy a van without a thought for insurance? Which experienced cook would put vanilla seeds in the bin?

Would you ever listen to anything by Abby Clements again?

Probably not.

Have you listened to any of Jane Collingwood’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is up to the narrator's usual high standard, lots of variation in voice and characters.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really

A sweet story that pootled along nicely!

Predictable but enjoyable. Nice characters and nice settings to enjoy, if you love food you'll enjoy this read.
