Today on Becca's Books, I'm wishing the fabulous Jenny Oliver a super happy publication day! The second book in Jenny Oliver's Cherry Pie Island series The Vintage Ice Cream Van is published today by Carina UK, and it looks and sounds absolutely scrumptious! After reading the first book in Jenny's latest series The Grand Reopening of Dandelion Cafe (see my review here), I couldn't wait to see what she had in store for us next! And finally, bookish beauts, the big day is here!

If you were to ask Holly Somers how life is going at the moment she wouldn't have a clue how to answer you... On the one hand she's embarking on a retro-fabulous road trip in her vintage ice cream van all the way from Cherry Pie Island to the South of France. Plus, she's sharing the journey with Wilf Hunter-Brown (quite possibly the most attractive man she's ever met!)

On the other? Well, apart from being unsure as to whether the rickety old ice cream van will actually make it to the Riviera, she and Wilf had a one-night fling a few weeks ago. Even worse, it seems there's an unexpected little consequence of their impromptu night together. Life on Cherry Pie Island definitely hasn't equipped Holly with knowledge of the best way to tell a super-rich entrepreneur with a womanising reputation that he's about to become a Dad!

Despite the heat of the Provencal sunshine you'd think you'd be able to keep cool inside an ice cream van - but the temperature is definitely rising. And with time running out to tell Wilf the truth, Holly's dream roadtrip is fast becoming a nightmare on wheels! There's no denying that this will be a journey to remember. When it comes to sundaes, Holly has always been partial to the more traditional flavours - but something's telling her this could be the time to try something new...


Eeee! I am so so SO excited to read The Vintage Ice Cream Van! Definitely sounds like the heat is about to be turned a couple of notches between Holly and Wilf and I can't wait to see how it all plays out! 

Jenny Oliver, I wish you a wonderful publication day! I hope there'll be bubbles!
