    Who's done what ?

    A cop undercover as an icecream man mistaken by the good housewives of suburbia as a drug dealer and investigated by them. A funny story, especially as he falls for one of these women and it gets complicated on who investigates who and for what reason. A comedy of errors and mistaken identities, funny, warm and really entertaining. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Despite the craziness one can relate with the characers and feels with them. A superb read!

    Cute and funny

    I’m not sure if this is a reprint of the book published in 1989 or a new edition with changes in the story, but this is about Jenny Lake, a divorcee that has 2 beautiful kids, Emma who is way too old for her age and Kevin who is living some of rebellious phase but cares deeply about his mom and sister (even if he pretends he doesn’t). She meets the new Ice-Cream Man, who looks like a dangerous and interesting man and she just keep fantasizing about him. Even when her friends/neighbors believe that his job is just a cover to sell drugs to kids. With the involvement of the police, she is tasked with the job of finding out who he really is. Now she is juggling between stretching the little money that she has, working to cover up the excuse of a father that her kids have and keeping an eye on the guy with the involvement of the close-knit neighborhood meddling in everything. Nick Barnett is the new Ice-Cream Man and is definitely not selling drugs, he is actually working as an undercover cop, to discover who is committing mail fraud and by pretending to be an Ice-Cream Man he can get a close watch to the neighborhood, specially to his beautiful first suspect, a divorcee that have so precarious finances. So, while reading this book I had to remember that the setting is in 1988, at some points I really didn't like Jen's personality, but then I remember that at the time the book was written her personality is completely normal. The reason I didn't connect with her is because she is obsess with having a husband and kids. I really hated that she was giving Nick such a hard time just because of what he was studying, just because it remind her of her exhusband. I really liked Nick, to me he was real, he acted like a real person, having trouble taking in all of his feelings when he is so used not having them. Dealing with abandonment all of his life and being afraid to be close to someone has made him tough and not at all approachable, that made his declarations so more meaningful and it gave me all the feels. To me he was the best thing about the book. I did enjoyed this book, it was really cute and sweet. I would definitely recommend it, because even thou it was my cup of tea, I really liked and it gave me so good feelings I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    A really good contemporary romance. 💞💓💞

    I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. I really enjoyed this book! It was "originally published in 1988" according to the author and it's a fun glimpse back into a simpler time before cell phones. It was also a more naive time when people actually spoke to each other. (Yes, I remember those times and miss them.) But back to the book... It is about Jenny, a divorced mother of two, who struggling to just survive on her income since "the Jerk" of an ex-husband hasn't been paying child support and Nick, who is an undercover cop investigating Jenny for mail fraud and theft. It's not necessarily a "sweet" romance as there are a couple of "sex scenes" although they are definitely tame by today's standards.😉😊😍

    A Great Light Hearted Romance

    There is drug dealing in the area and divorcee mum, Jenny, thinks it could be the gorgeous ice cream van man whose the chief suspect. Little does she realise that he is a cop and she is HIS chief suspect but he's trying to prove that evidence wrong. Nick shouldn't fall for this gorgeous woman with a houseful of kids. They're not in their 20's and both have 'baggage' but does it really matter in the end when there is that sizzling chemistry between them? The dialogue is fast and witty and I loved the way they skirted around each other. This is a light hearted, humourous romance that will keep me coming back for more from this fantastic author. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Definitely recommended
