After enjoying a holiday break, I’m back with the first July treat of the #OneScoopOrTwo “Sunday Sundaes”. Vanilla with a Twist by Peggy Jaeger is the heart-warming tale of a single mom trying to make it on her own. If you love sweet romance, this book is the summer read you can’t miss. Here’s my review:

I wanted to be Tandy’s friend from page one. She’s the strong heroine with a heart of gold who I love to see find her Prince Charming. To say she’s had to claw her way through the patriarchy is an understatement. Deacon the workaholic engineer is swoon-worthy in every way. What I loved most about their romance is the acts of service as a means of showing affection. This love language is often overlooked (because it is difficult to write) and Jaeger nails it.

I highly recommend Vanilla with a Twist to anyone who wants to be transported to the small town of Beacher’s Cove NH and experience the quiet romance sure to melt your heart.
Here’s the Blurb:
Tandy Blakemore spends her days running her New England ice cream parlor, single-parenting her teenage son, and trying to keep her head above financial water. No easy feat when the shop’s machinery is aging and her son is thinking about college. Tandy hasn’t had a day off in a decade and wonders if she’ll ever be able to live a worry-free life.
Engineer Deacon Withers is on an enforced vacation in the tiny seaside town of Beacher’s Cove. Overworked, stressed, and lonely, he walks into Tandy’s shop for a midday ice cream cone and gets embroiled in helping her fix a broken piece of equipment.
Can the budding friendship that follows lead to something everlasting?
