The Ice Cream Parlour By: Isabella May (Reviewed by Rochelle)

Hello and thanks for stopping by.  Can you believe that it’s the end of May, where did this month go.  Here is my last review for the month and I must say I really enjoyed this book.

Happy Reading Everyone!


Giovanna Tonioli is a successful stockbroker with a famous sports star boyfriend, but things aren’t as sweet as they seem. When life in the city of Bath goes from Vanilla to Rocky Road, she takes herself off to Italy for an ‘Eat Pray Love’ style tour of all things gelateria. What she doesn’t expect to find on her travels is one smooth, hot dollop of temptation that she just can’t shake.
How will her spiteful twin sister react when Giovanna returns to open a rival ice cream parlour? Will Natalia get her just desserts? Or will things become even stickier? All’s fair in love, war and ice cream. Isn’t it?

The Ice Cream Parlour is a mouthwatering tale of fate, family, love and jealousy – with a delectable drizzle of alchemy besides.

My Review:

This is not my usual sort of book but I have heard a lot about it through a Facebook group that I am in and WOW this book was awesome.   It was a real page-turner of a book.

It’s the first that I have read anything from this author and it won’t be my last, on the lookout for her other books.

Straight from the beginning I was hooked, I found it fascinating how different the twins were and that they did not get along at all.  Imaginative and creative, witty and current.  In addition, Giovanna’s tour of Italy had me really thinking I transported to Italia. Such a great read.
