Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy Sundaes with Nora. I read book one in the Sweet Dreams series, Sugar Spun Sister, and really enjoyed it. I couldn’t wait to read this one.
This book picks up after Cricket, Nora, and Lindsay open their ice cream shop, Sweet Dreams. And as the title reflects, this book centers on Nora. Nora left her high-powered career to open this shop with her friends. The consequences of that decision play out in this installment. Her husband, Kenneth, is not happy with Nora’s decision, and he ends their marriage. Now, Nora is on her own and has to figure how to make the ice cream shop successful and how to live on her own again.
This was a fun, quick read. I loved Nora’s ideas, drive, ambition. It was great to get to know Nora as she gets to know herself. She loves the ice cream shop and her friends, that is evident throughout this tale. I did not care for Kenneth at all. He was a complete jerk. I loved that Nora used her finance background to help the shop. And I enjoyed catching up with the girls and their shop. Let me just say, I loved their marketing for the hangover ice cream! I can’t wait for the next book.
Would I recommend it: Yes! This is a fun series.
About the book – from Goodreads: Nora Finch has a sweet life. She’s married to one of San Francisco’s wealthiest venture capitalists, she lives in a gorgeous old Victorian mansion in one of the city’s most sought-after neighborhoods, and she just launched an ice cream business with her two best friends, Cricket and Lindsay.
However…exactly one week after Sweet Dreams opens its doors to the public, Nora’s husband, Kenneth, informs her he wants a divorce.
Talk about bad timing. Now, on top of the tremendous pressure she feels to drive sales, Nora has to deal with the breakdown of her marriage, adjust to a more frugal lifestyle, find a new place to live and prepare to dip her toes in the dating pool for the first time in four years. If that weren’t enough, everyone keeps trying to get her to “process” her feelings. For an overachiever like Nora, juggling the demands of a new business along with a total overhaul of her personal life should be doable…right?
