    Fooled by a pretty face Or to be precise, bamboozled by a gorgeous Book Cover I want to take a moment here to tell you all about the sheer prettiness of the book cover Retro fonts, pastel colours and art deco illustrations of wafered sundaes and munched up ice cream bars acted as an ACME sized magnet for a nostalgia freak like me.The summary at the back was promising too Two young sisters Anna and Imogen with vastly differing personalities suddenly learn that they have inherited Grandma Vivien s Ice Cream Parlour Vivien was a beautiful person with a kind heart and was adored by her family, friends and patrons But her seaside business was going downhill Stable Anna who has just bought a house with her boyfriend and free spirited Imogen who is a photographer living it up on a Thailand beach have to decide whether wrapping up their individual dreams and bring their Grandma s shop back to life is a doable venture As summer approaches, the two sisters go through the pangs of small business setup while juggling their private lives.I really wanted to love this book I did I am a huge cooking fiend If a book has food hoisting up the plot, I will read it So yes, I loved the delectable mentions o...

    I think I was once again a little fooled by a pretty cover Don t get me wrong, this wasn t necessarily a bad book It was a very quick read and I didn t have to force myself to get through it but it unfortunately just wasn t as good as I hoped it would be The first half of Vivien s Heavenly Ice Cream Shop was very boring and nothing really happened I did like that the main characters were running a business and it was nice to read about how the business went from a disaster to something that provides them with an income But there were just many other things in this book I didn t really care about I liked the dog, he was cute, and so was little Alfie the son of the boyfriend of one of the MCs , but the romance was very weak Nothing really happened until the last 100 pages of the book and then everything just felt extremely rushed Further, I also didn t really like Abby Clements s writing style Overall though, it was still a nice summ...

    Sisters Imogen and Anna are devastated when their beloved grandmother Vivien dies unexpectedly The two sisters have been living entirely different lives and doing different things, but when they discover that Vivien has left them her ice cream parlour, they make a big decision As Viven s Ice cream Shop is a seafront institution and the sisters want to protect their grandmother s legacy, they devise a plan together to train up and make the ice cream shop the best it can be So whilst Imogen watches the shop and comes up with new ideas, Anna flies to Italy to attend a gourmet ice cream making course As they get to grips with running an ice cream shops, the sisters learn lots about ice cream, and themselves too I thoroughly enjoyed this As soon as I picked the book up I was immediately drawn into the story, and I actually finished it in a single day, I just couldn t put the book down I will warn you though.this book will make you want ice cream and lots of it I didn t have any in the house, but as soon as I finished the book, I went out especially just to buy some So a tip stock up on some ice cream before you start reading perhaps buy both the book and ice cream at the same time , because they are a winning combination The characters were ...

    Every so often a book comes along that you just fall in love with and want to tell everybody to read This is that book I wanted to read it from the minute I laid eyes on the cover, it looks great And luckily the story contained within is even better I picked it up earlier wanting to read a bit of it and finished it within a few hours I am now left feeling happy that I finished a good book but sad that it is over In recent years we have had family members being left cafes, cake shops, sweet shops etc however I did find the actual story and the characters very original and would say that this isn t just a rehash of similar books from other authors I took to the two characters Anna and Imogen straightaway and loved them throughout the whole book They both felt very realistic and you really root for them throughout the book.I was salivating reading about the ice cream recipes though perhaps not the batch that Imogen created , and wishing I could be in Italy with Anna trying some of them out There are recipes in the back of the book which I would like to try out but to be honest it wouldn t be the same as being in Italy or being in a lovely little ice cream shop near the seafront I found myself so engrossed in the story and enjoy...

    I really wanted to love this book I had admired the cover for ages, and the storyline sounded like something I d absolutely love Unfortunately I found the book to be bland and for the most part, quite boring I realised I wasn t enjoying the story of Imogen and Anna as I felt no emotional connection to either of them I wasn t enraptured with their lives and wasn t rooting for them Every plot seemed so convenient , eg they run out of money, they decide to get a loan, get loan approval Everything was so step by step, and I was really looking for a bit depth to the storyline.The part s I did enjoy were the struggles their father went through after losing his mother I wish attention had been paid to his grief, and the girls had interacted with him and their mother The other part I enjoyed was their meddlesome au...

    The cover makes me want to sink my head into a pot of delicious raspberry gelato That s what made me pick up this book from the shelf Also, the description looked kinda good A story about two sisters that start a business together I like that kind of stuff so I bought it.The ice cream parlour belonged to Vivien, Anna and Imogen s grandmother She s a good woman, loved by everyone, that likes to share what she has with those less fortunate Anna and Imogen are very different from each other Imogen loves travelling and havin fun, while Anna is content with living a conventional life, this is, finishing uni, find a job, find a boyfriend, move together and get married In fact, she just started the phase move together by buying an apartment with her boyfriend Jon after a couple of years together About Imogen, they say she s the spitting image of her father Which seems to annoy her mother, who dislikes those traits on her and is not happy with the kind of life her daughter is living.The girls have an uncle called Martin, who married a french woman They live in France I think they have no children.Also we got Alfie Jon s son from his first marriage Alfie is 3 and speaks about himself in third person Jon and his mother divorced when he was 1 because Jon caught her cheating on him with the neighbour The best of the book, the recipes in the end Can t wa...

    Imogen has been living in Thailand for six months, dividing her time between relaxing with friends and her boyfriend in idyllic surroundings and building an exhibition of underwater photographs She can t imagine returning to dreary Britain but one phone call freezes her travel bug and sends her back to Brighton Imogen s beloved grandmother, Vivien has passed away, leaving her ice cream shop to Imogen and her older sister, Anna.Imogen and Anna have a tough task ahead of them to fulfil their grandmother s wishes and take over the business The ice cream shop has suffered in recent years and needs modernisation and a new wave of customers Anna has always dreamed of making a living from selling her own food creations but she doesn t have much experience of making ice cream and creating her own recipes so, in the name of research, she jets off to Italy to enrol on a gelato course.Making the ice cream shop a success won t be easy but Anna and Imogen are determined to make their grandmother proud.I was thrilled when...
