Honestly, I opened up On Any Given Sundae with no doubt in my mind that I was going to love it, and I was not disappointed in the least bit! I knew from the premise that this was going to be one of those read-in-one- sitting- feel- good- make- me- all- warm- and- fuzzy books- And it certainly was. Down to the last bite.
I love reality in my fictional characters- as silly as that sounds. I like to read a book and feel like I am right there, in their town with their families and friends, sharing in their experiences. On Any Given Sundae does just that and so so much more. I might have been right there in this little town in Wisconsin with these wonderful people!
Elizabeth and I may have been sisters for that matter. The ex-chubby, food loving stuttering chick who had the hots for the town jock… seriously, the parallels I could draw are endless. And the chance to make that jock fall head over heels years later when he comes back to town lookin all good… well, that I can’t make any parallels on, but I can say that I can imagine it in my head and it would go just like Marilyn Brant painted it for me!
All silliness aside, I truly, honestly, thoroughly enjoyed On Any Given Sundae. It has the perfect amount of all of the right stuff. The romance, the laughs, the poignant moments, the food- I fell so in love with these characters and their story, I literally felt invested in their HEA. The secondary characters, the atmosphere, the love and loyalty of all of the characters combined- it is a delightful cocktail that will make any romance lover smile all over.
Bravo to Marilyn Brant on a story wonderfully told, I hope she keeps them coming and they keep making me just as happy as this one did!
