Dani’s on a mission to get her life back on track by the end of the summer. Running, rowing, aerobics and more, but perhaps all she needs are sweet treats and a second chance?
Ten years ago, Dani fled Appledore with a broken-heart and a suitcase full of shattered dreams. Only now is she brave enough to put her past behind her and return for a summer selling homemade ice cream and getting fit by doing sit-ups by the sea.
But the new-look cafe is filled with old memories of Jude, her teenage sweetheart-turned-sour. She thinks of him every time she swirls warm sauce onto a ‘chocolate-bockaglory’ and even with the help of Chris, her gorgeous personal trainer, the urge to break her diet is everywhere she turns.
When Jude makes an appearance at the cafe on the eve of Dani’s birthday party, history threatens to repeat itself. Is Dani strong enough to say no? And is the love she’s been longing for much closer than she thinks?
This is the first book I have read by Sue Watson and it won’t be the last. Dani is the main character in this book and I think there are a women that would be able to relate to her. Like Dani I think you have to find something that truly makes you happy and go for it and not do it for other people. Do it for yourself. There are a few giggles in here too and also some very delicious sounding ice cream.

Anna and her husband Matteo are ready to embark a delicious Italian adventure. After a year and a half running their ice cream shop on Brighton beach and raising their baby Isabella, Matteo is starting to miss Italy. A shared passion for ices means it’s easy to settle on a new business idea – they’ll open a shop in the town’s cobbled square, a short walk from the sparkling blue sea. For a while, life is sweet; but then Matteo’s overbearing family get involved…
Anna’s younger sister Imogen feels like things are finally coming together – she’s living with boyfriend Finn in a beach house in Brighton, and her photography is taking off. Then her career stalls, and the lure of Capri – and a man from her past – prove difficult to resist.
Join Anna and Imogen and share a summer on the Amalfi Coast that you’ll never forget.
The heavenly Italian Ice Cream Shop follows on from Vivien’s Heavenly Ice Cream Shop which I would suggest reading before this one so you can familiarise yourself with all the wonderful characters. This is such a quick and easy read which I really enjoyed. I had to buy this book as I enjoyed the first one but also because I am a big fan of ice cream. I found it fascinating how Anna and Matteo decide to set up an ice cream shop in Italy, I loved all the flavours they were dishing out to the locals and the tourists. I really loved this follow up book and finding out what everyone had got up to. I look forward to Abby Clements next book very much.
