Ella's Ice Cream Summer

My book group chose a fun read for July: Ella's Ice Cream Summer by Sue Watson.  I blew threw this novel, it was so enjoyable.

Here's my Goodreads review:

My book group chose this novel for our "fluff" summer reading. And I'm glad they did. It was a fast, fun, engrossing read.

Ella's life is spiraling out of control. She loses her job and now her ex is trying to sell her house out from under her. With her kids away for the summer she escapes to the coast where she's been given an interesting inheritance. Once there, memories of her childhood make her realize that she may need to make drastic life changes in order to find lasting happiness. With the help of a new friend, a new canine companion, a cousin, and her mother, she begins to understand what it takes to make her happy. In the process, she rediscovers a confidence in herself - while unearthing interesting family secrets.

This is a "fluff" read on the surface but there are some good life lessons in this charming novel.
