On Any Given Sundae

(2011)
A novel by

 
 
Nothing tops the sweetness of an unexpected love....

Rob and Elizabeth may have grown up practically next door to each other, but they have nothing in common. Elizabeth "Please Don't Call Me Lizzy" Daniels is a small-town Wisconsin girl at heart. Shy and inexperienced at love, the frizzy-haired dessert cookbook writer resides in her quaint hometown of Wilmington Bay, stutters painfully when nervous and is only comfortable with her laptop and her tiny circle of cooking pals. Roberto "You'd Better Call Me Rob, or Else" Gabinarri is the town's golden boy and former football star who left home after high school, made a splash in the big city and never looked back. He loves his anonymous city life and relishes running his trendy sports-themed restaurant in Chicago.

When Elizabeth's uncle Siegfried and Rob's uncle Pauly rush off to Europe for a month, they temporarily relinquish the reins of their ice cream shop to their respective niece and nephew. Despite Elizabeth's looming deadline - she's writing a dessert cookbook - and painful shyness, she agrees, not realizing that Rob, her childhood crush, comes with the deal. Rob, on the other hand, can't say no to his uncle, so returns reluctantly, but he is counting the minutes until he can get back to city life.

The unlikely pair make the best of being stuck together, but both feel pressured: Elizabeth by a pressing publication deadline, and Rob by an Italian mother bent on lining up potential hometown brides for him. Then Rob comes up with an idea - something that might help them both - but it involves just a bit of family deception. With time running out to finish her cookbook and her friends already stretched to the max trying to assist them, Elizabeth reluctantly agrees.

Can love, hot summer nights and, maybe, some chocolate sauce, caramel, and whipped cream...turn their farce into reality?
