Ella's Ice Cream dream had me smiling and grinning like an idiot from the very first page. In the first few chapters we meet Ella and her family and friends - an eclectic bunch of characters that I could relate to straight away. Each and every person, just slightly more bonkers than the next. My favourite being her mother, Roberta who is loud, opinionated and on a different page in life to everyone else, leaving total chaos in her wake as she plays up to her Italian heritage and gets the wrong end of pretty much every situation.
The story begins with Ella losing her job, her children have finished university and are off to spread their wings leaving Ella feeling like a redundant mum home alone with no purpose or direction - she only has her slightly bonkers mother to care for. To add to that she finds out that her ex husband wants to sell the family home in order to keep wife number two in the manner she has become accustomed to.
News that her mothers sister, her aunt Sophia has died brings back memories of happy, sunny, summers spent in Appledore in Devon.Read more ›
Delilah the Pomeranian has to be one of the most adorable characters in fiction I’ve come across in a while. The other one I liked was Ella who returns to Devon in order to resurrect the old ice cream van business. Running a Ice Cream business in Devon has to be one of the nicest ideas you can imagine – the aromas, the hot sandy days, the jingle of bells in the summer breeze….now that’s got to mend a broken heart right?
Roberta’s mum – well she’s a right hoot – give the woman her own book or TV show right now! Ah this was just the nicest bunch of characters I’ve had the pleasure to meet. I was right there with them and inside their adventures in dear old Appledore. The setting reminded me of country village mixed with Harry Potter and there was more than enough magic in the pages.
Delightful and even if you’re not a huge ice cream fan like me, you’ lick this up in one delightful scoop
The book was filled with wonderful characters and a fabulous setting that made me want to buy a retro van and drive straight down to Devon to see them all.
I loved Ella and Ben and am hoping both make an appearance in the next book.
The story warmed my heart and the book was just a joy to read.
Can't wait for the next one :)
I love love stories with humour, and this book surely came up tops. The sarcasm and dark humour is very frequent in the first couple of chapters, as we discover the main character, Ella and obviously, her family.
Ella, a 44 years old mum of two (actually three, since she “babysits” even her own mother), hoped that after growing up her own two teenagers, will finally get time to arrange her own love life after the painful divorce more than a decade ago, but instead she’s babysitting her own mother and has a new hobby, which apparently consists in going to funerals of her mother’s friends and family.
Roberta, Ella’s mum is a very funny character herself, she tries to embrace the internet, but it always fails, her grandchildren are making fun of this process, and she doesn’t even mind to confuse “texting” with “sexting” (and creates a very awkward situation in the ladies’ society), she loves to make fun of her daughter in a cute way. Roberta’s hobbies are various, but the most attractive one consists in criticising the funerals of her friends and not-so-friends, starting from the decor, ending with the food. She’s the main source of the dark humour in the novel and she has the charm to make you think way more philosophical about the death.Read more ›

Perfect by the sea summer reading but like too much ice cream in one go can get a bit over sweet and predictablePublished 5 days ago by Gilley
Nice little story for a summer holiday read. Nothing overly special and on the formulaic side but for a beach or poolside read its ideal.Published 5 days ago by LadyFox
