The-Sweet-Life-CoverBestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher presents a new inspirational contemporary romance featuring an ice cream shop on Cape Cod!

In The Sweet Life, Dawn Dixon’s life changes drastically when her groom calls off the upcoming wedding, and her widowed mother announces she had breast cancer surgery recently. Marnie Dixon didn’t want her treatment to interfere with the wedding. Since the Cape Cod honeymoon was already paid for, her former groom Kevin insists she use it. 

Dawn, a planner by nature, takes her mother, Marnie, spontaneous by nature, thinking it will be a good place to rest for both of them. While they bump heads, they love each other, making this trip a memorable one, especially when impulsive Marnie buys a rundown ice cream shop – something that had been a dream of Dawn and her father, but not Marnie’s dream. Can they work together – without killing one another – to re-launch the ice cream shop, and find renewed hope in Cape Cod?

Fisher creates a heart-filled story with irresistible characters, ice cream inspired quotes, and faith & grief journeys in a quaint Cape Cod village. Dawn’s former fiance Kevin shows up, feeling guilty and concerned about Dawn as she does very un-Dawnlike things (like taking leave from work to support her mother’s renovation of the ice cream shop, as well as actually making the ice cream from scratch based on a recipe she and her father created). Dealing with the Historical Commission provides some humor as they renovate, and preserve the old building. Themes of love, family, and faith permeate the story like a good fudge ripple!

Recommended for adult readers of contemporary fiction, especially fans of Fisher, Denise Hunter, Irene Hannon, and Courtney Walsh.
