I was humbled to wake up to the 5+ stars for Smoother Than Spumoni this morning from N. N. Lights Book Heaven. When I first queried to be part of the One Scoop or Two book series, I thought it was a longshot this story would see the light of day. On the day of its acceptance, I danced around my kitchen. With the finesse of my fantastic editor, Lill, we were able to elevate Frank and Susie’s summer romance into a tale worthy to sit on the shelves next to the other One Scoop or Two books. This summer my “Sunday Sundaes” reviews have shown just how talented this group of authors are and I am honored to sit amongst them — even if it is in a wetsuit.

Smoother Than Spumoni is about two stick-in-the-mud shifters who grew up too fast. Fans of the Strawberry Shifters know Frank as Rosie Paulino’s oldest son who had to step into his father’s shoes when Frankie Sr. passed away suddenly in a Sluagh battle. Frank Jr. not only runs the town’s social hub with his mom but rangles his five younger brothers while homeschooling. At the beginning of Bear with Me, we see Frank as the workaholic who tries to measure up to his father’s legendary status and falls short — mostly because he’s barely twenty years old. The Strawberry pack leader and Rosie conspire to send Frank to sunny Seagrass Island FL for a summer internship. Their hope is that he finds new culinary skills, a possible mate, and his care-free side. Well, Rosie, two out of three is not bad…

Not to be outdone in the un-fun department, Susie Larkin is a driven young lady who has her eyes on the prize — a frozen confection empire. While her inner dolphin will not allow her to push aside the fun in the water, Susie rejects all other activities of the island’s youth. From possible mates to her parent’s wish to keep their business a local secret, Susie ignores everything but her dreams. However, Frank’s presence on Seagrass island is so disruptive even she can’t help but notice…
