Sundaes with Nora by Anna Garner

Published February 24, 2015

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? 

My Thoughts…

While this is a story of a woman following her dreams , I enjoyed the friendships in this book even more.    The three women, who have been friends forever, follow their dreams together and open an ice cream shop, Sweet Dreams.   These women work hard together to make the shop successful, play hard together, and love each other to the ends of the earth.     Their friendship is the type that people on the outside look at and think that they wish they had friends like this.   These ladies protect each other, call each other out on issues, and love each other.   

Sundaes with Nora is a continuation of Sugar Spun Sister, the first book in the Sweet Dreams series.   Cricket’s story is book one, Nora’s is book two, and Lindsay’s will follow in book three.    It is fun to see these three best friends suceed in their dreams and lives.   I enjoyed that this is a clean story.   Ther e is love, fun, and attractions, but it does not have to lead to falling into bed.   These are women with morals and belief in themselves.   They do not need a man to help them succeed.

I have always read Anna Garner’s books when they come available.   They are fun, easy , and usually one sitting reads.   I recommend checking out all her books, especially the Sweet Dreams series.
