Mrs. Whippy by Cecelia Ahern

A woman in trouble turns to ice cream, and just might find love in its pursuit.

Emelda is 46 years old. Her husband, Charlie, has just left her for a 23-year-old dancer. Her five difficult sons worship their father and blame Emelda for his departure. On top of everything else, she has to struggle with a new job at the local supermarket. For comfort she turns to her only true friend – ice-cream.

But lately there’s a handsome man driving the ice-cream van. Could romance be about to blossom?
