“One moment can change everything…”
Alice Emerson and best friend Sasha Miller have made a pact. They’ve decided to swap city living for the beautiful white beaches of the Outer Banks and pour everything they have into launching an ice cream shop in the little house by the sea where Alice spent blissful childhood holidays with her grandfather. As Alice and Sasha add colour to the walls of the beach house and tempt the locals with their delicious recipes, their fresh new life begins to take shape.
Jenny Hale is one of my new ‘go to’ Summer authors. On my Summer reading list she’s up there with books by Anita Shreve, Diane Chamberlain, Elin Hilderbrand and many many more! (I’m putting together a Summer reading list, stand by!) I loved this book, and it was the first I’d ever read of Jenny Hale’s but it felt like I’d known her style forever. The characters are warm and easily likeable and the setting that the book is written around is beautiful and even if you’re curled up on the sofa on a rainy day in England reading this – you’ll feel a tiny bit like you’re there!
It’s a quick read, great for by the pool or over a weekend, heart-warming and up-lifting.
Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for an advanced copy of this read (sorry it took me so long to review this time!)
