Wipe off your flip flops, it’s going to be a bumpy ride...

When Sacha Collins, cafe owner and sundae-maker extraordinaire, meets Italian archaeologist, Alessandro Salvatore in Rome, she's grateful to him for being her tour guide. Now he’s turned up in the seaside village where she lives, known locally as, The Boardwalk by the Sea and is setting up a gelateria in direct competition to her retro Summer Sundaes Café.

She's only been running her café for two years since taking over from her father. Until now the only other shops on the boardwalk have been a wool shop, an antique shop and a second-hand book shop. These have helped rather than hindered her custom. How will her creative sundaes made from fresh Jersey ice cream compete with his delicious Italian gelato?

Sacha is worried. Is there enough custom for both businesses to thrive? Who is behind the strange changes being made on the boardwalk? And when the oldest resident on the boardwalk is threatened with eviction can Sacha and Alessandro come together and find a way of helping her?

For a peaceful little boardwalk overlooking one of the quieter beaches on the island, there's an awful lot going on and some of it is going to lead to big changes.

My Review

As usual Georgina Troy excels in transporting the reader to the sunny climes of Jersey. I loved the Italian influence in this book, in the name of Alessandro. Summer Sundaes sounds like a wonderful series and if the rest are anything like the first book, then the reader is in for an absolute treat. I am looking forward to finding out more about Sacha's friends who appear briefly in this book. There are some wonderful minor characters too. To sum up, stunning location, handsome hero and obstacles to thwart the path of true love. Great summer read.
