Ella’s Ice Cream Summer by Sue Watson
Ella’s Ice Cream Summer is a fun summery beach read that had me laughing from page one. Sue Watson never fails to humor her readers by creating charismatic characters. I continue to find myself inspired by her leading ladies that experience fun adventures when they realize that their lives aren’t the steady boring humdrum situations that came before. These are stories of women that are finding themselves later in life and truly allowing themselves to thrive in new situations and new relationships.
This book made me want to go to the beach, grab a delicious ice cream and stick my toes in the sand. There was a touch of nostalgia in the story, thinking back on Ella’s past while at the same time looking into the future. Themes of life, love and family secrets lend themselves to a well-written and fun chick-lit novel. I would recommend this to all who love chick-lit and to anyone looking for a good summer read.

About the Book
Title: Ella’s Ice Cream Summer
Author: Sue Watson
Published: May 11, 2017
Book Blurb: 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.
