Abby Clements || Vivien's Heavenly Ice Cream Shop

When Imogen and Anna unexpectedly inherit their grandmother Vivien's ice cream parlour, it turns both their lives upside down. The Brighton shop is a seafront institution, but though it's big on retro charm it's critically low on customers. If the sisters don't turn things around quickly, their grandmother's legacy will disappear forever.

With summer fast approaching, Imogen and Anna devise a plan. Rather than sell up, they will train up, and make the parlour the newest destination on the South Coast foodie map.

While Imogen watches the shop and conjures new marketing ideas, her sister flies to Italy to attend a gourmet ice cream-making course. But can their best-laid plans survive their warring family, tempestuous love lives - and the great British Weather? One thing is for certain - this summer will be like no other . . .

Review
I featured this on my sweet treat reads and thats exactly what this is. A quick dose of chick lit, i picked this up when it was on sale on kindle so making it all the more sweeter. 
So, we follow two sisters, Imogen & Anna, who are left an ice cream shop in their grans will. One is in events and has finally been promoted, the other an underwater photographer abroad. Neither want to change their life, and instead decide to sell the ice cream shop. However both have a change of heart and decided to keep it to run.

I liked this book, it was short, sweet and cute, in some parts a little lack lustre. It was very bam, we have changed our minds. oh book a problem, bam, we fixed it. Everything was very instand which for me, is where it fell short because i love books like this. The authors style was nice and made the story easy to read, for a 77p kindle read it was worth every penny. It has/had alot of potentioal, and in some ways it was underwhelming, but it was well worth reading with a bowl of ice cream (i had to set the scene didnt i!)

Like the book, im keeping this short and to the point, overall a nice read.

Rating
3/5
