Sweet like ice cream! Sweet like romance and young love! Sweet in the very best way. That is Fisher’s latest book, set on Cape Cod with lots of ice cream and ice cream based quotes.

Callie lost her job. A careless accident caused hundreds of people to experience food poisoning and that ended her executive chef position. Taking refuge with her aunt and cousin, Callie struggles to find her place while learning about happiness from an elusive local author. Callie’s cousin Dawn is looking for the perfect venue for her wedding and analyzing Callie and what to do to “fix” her. Marnie, Callie’s aunt, loves her niece but feels there is more to her depression than meets the eye.

Read as author Suzanne Fisher works her literary magic and brings all scenarios to a satisfactory conclusion. Loved this book!
