Review: Welcome to Icicle Falls by Sheila Roberts

Romance, Women’s Fiction



Release Date:
June 15, 2015

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Welcome back to Icicle Falls!

See how it all began. A prequel to Life in Icicle Falls, the popular series by Sheila Roberts.

Join Muriel as she tells you about the town she’s loved her whole life. Back in the 1960s, good girl Muriel became a rebel when she resisted her dad’s plans for her—to run Sweet Dreams, the family chocolate company. She had dreams of her own, dreams that involved a handsome stranger named Stephen Sterling. But everything worked out, as it often does in Icicle Falls, even if it happens in ways you don’t expect. Think of it as the Second Chance town!

My Review

I have been wanting to read the Icicle Falls series for awhile, but haven’t had a chance. When I saw this prequel novella, I figured this would be a good opportunity.

First, this is a very short novella, but it did the trick. It introduces the readers to the town of Icicle Falls and the people who live there. It definitely whet my appetite to continue with this series. Now, I just have to make time for it :)

This one starts off in the 1960’s before the series actually began, which is present day. Even though this is a short book, the author did a great job of developing the characters. I already felt as if I knew them.

I’m more than ready to find out what happens to these characters as time goes by and they grow and have their own families.

Definitely looks like a series I will enjoy.

  1. The 60's, chocolate, a bit of romance, what's not to love about this book? The cover is amazing!

  2. I've enjoyed most of the books in this series!

  3. I've read one book in this series and I really liked it. No idea why I haven't read more from it. I really should get this prequel. Sounds like the perfect way to get back to it!
