The Ice Cream Parlour by Isabella May #Review


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?

*Marian Keyes meets Paulo Coelho meets Nigella*

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

My Review

Every book of Isabella’s is a delight to read. There’s always a fear that when you love an author there’s going to be that one book that breaks the mould, that doesn’t quite cut it. This is definitely not the case when it comes to Isabella May.

Every book has a touch of magic and manages to weave its way into your soul.

The Ice Cream Parlour was no different. The characters come alive and pull you into the pages. Giovanna is a fantastic strong and driven woman who knows what she wants and goes for it.

The history between Giovanna, her twin sister and parents runs deep and made my injustice levels reach boiling point!

And now to the ice-cream within the pages of The Ice Cream Parlour. I can’t even describe how much my mouth watered reading the delectable array of flavours. I need an ice cream parlour like this in my life!

Thank you Isabella for another belter!


All About Isabella

Isabella May lives in (mostly) sunny Andalucia, Spain with her husband, daughter and son, creatively inspired by the sea and the mountains. When she isn’t having her cake and eating it, sampling a new cocktail on the beach, or ferrying her children to and from after school activities, she can usually be found writing.

As a Co-founder and a former contributing writer for the popular online women’s magazine, The Glass House Girls – http://www.theglasshousegirls.com – she has also been lucky enough to subject the digital world to her other favourite pastimes, travel, the Law of Attraction, and Prince (The Purple One).

She has recently become a Book Fairy, and is having lots of fun with her imaginative ‘drops’!

Oh! What a Pavlova is her debut novel… and her second novel has already been submitted to her publishers: watch this space…
