The sweet life (Cape Cod Creamery 1)


Suzanne Woods Fisher






May 2022


308 pages


Marnie Dixon is impetuous, enthusiastic and loves the Lord. Her daughter Dawn takes after her dad, Phillip, recently deceased. They are methodical, pragmatic and pretty tightly wound. When Dawn’s fiancée Kevin backs out of their wedding, she finds herself on her Cape Cod honeymoon with her mom! How did things come to this?

Marnie falls in love with the idea of running an ice cream shop and buys a rundown shop intending to renovate it and live on Cape Cod, really a dream come true. Although Dawn thinks her mom is crazy, she will not abandon her and taking a leave from her job, stays on the Cape to help in the renovations. Linc helps ( a new friend in her mom’s age group) as well as Cowboy Leo (when he is not attending kindergarten) and one more friend whose help is invaluable-Kevin!

Can all the details of remodeling this historic building be overcome? Is there hope for romance between these broken hearts?
