Another Book Review – All on the same day! I have been busy haven’t I? And let me tell you! I have enjoyed every single page that I have turned! This book was a brilliant read from start to finish, I enjoyed the fast pace  and I read greedily as I rushed head first into the dramatic story which had me hooked!

As always, I would never have been introduced to this wonderful book if it hadn’t have been for the wonderful blog host and the author of this book! So big thanks go to Rachel of Rachels Random Resources (www.rachelsrandomresources.com) and the Author, Jo Woolaston (https://www.jowoolaston.com)

Pink Ice Creams - eBook Cover.jpgThe summary of this story had me intrigued and I was looking forward to getting started on this book. A few pages in and I was eager to read more into the story and to see how it concluded. The flow was very well done and I read smoothly throughout the pages.

Here’s a little bit about the writer!


About the Author
Pink Ice Creams Bio Pic.jpg
Jo Woolaston lives in Leicestershire, England with her extreme noise-making husband and two lovely sons. She tries to avoid housework and getting a ‘proper job’ by just writing stuff instead – silly verse, screenplays, shopping lists…

This sometimes works in her favour (she did well in her MA in TV Scriptwriting, gaining a Best Student award in Media and Journalism – and has had a few plays produced – that kind of thing) but mostly it just results in chronic insomnia and desperate tears of frustration. Pink Ice Creams is her first novel, she hopes you liked it.

About the Book
Pink Ice Creams - eBook Cover

Intent on fixing her broken marriage and the alcohol-fuelled catastrophe that is her life, Kay Harris arrives at her grim and grey holiday let, ready to lay to rest the tragedy that has governed her entire adulthood – the disappearance of her little brother, Adam.

But the road to recovery is pitted with the pot-holes of her own poor choices, and it isn’t long before Kay is forced to accept that maybe she doesn’t deserve the retribution she seeks. Will the intervention of strangers help her find the answers she needs to move on from her past, or will she always be stuck on the hard shoulder with no clear view ahead and a glove box full of empties?

Pink Ice Creams is a tale of loss, self-destruction, and clinging on to the scraps of the long-lost when everyone else has given up hope.

My Review

Kay Harris has a lot of demons; memories of tragic loss which has ripped her life apart and sent her on a downward spiral. Her need for alcohol is almost overpowering and yet she knows that she must try to confront what happened if she has any chance of moving forward.

The story was hard to read at times, but I felt the painful struggle that Kay faced daily. I read as she shouldered guilt from events that occurred when she was younger, events which saw her younger brother, Adam, disappear.

The character interactions were created brilliantly and I read with intrigue as I delved deeper into this book.

This is a fantastic read! Hard to read at times, but powerful and moving! One to read!


The Conclusion

Fantastic story, well written. I will be adding this author to my watch list as I really want to see more of her work! One to watch!

Rating – 4 out of 5!
