Saguaro Sunset by Debra E. Marvin

I received this book in exchange for an honest review and as part as being able to help Debra E. Marvin out and to drum up some interest in her books. 


From the back of the book:

No ice cream sandwich is as sweet as a long-delayed sunset kiss.

Friday night’s first phone call was the answer to Teresa Scott’s career dreams. Before she can celebrate, a second call informs her of her sister’s accident and puts Teresa in ‘the driver’s seat’ of Frosty Fingers Food Truck during the Tucson Festival of Books. Determined to keep her sister’s business out of the red, Teresa hides the painful disappointment of giving up her dream.

Fellow accountant Alan Davis sticks his do-gooder nose in, hanging around to help Teresa, the woman he’s adored since forever, not knowing the coveted board position he's just accepted is the one she had to give up.  

Nice Guy Alan isn’t really Teresa’s type, but she’s won over by his humor, adorable smile, and ice cream scooping skills. As his presence become irreplaceable, she sheds the hardened layers of her heart. Just when it’s clear she needs him in her life, Alan has to face his biggest regret and honor an old promise. Will losing this chivalrous knight in a snowman costume break Teresa’s vulnerable heart?





My thoughts on Debra E. Marvin:

Debra Marvin is such a sweet lady who has dozens and dozens of stories to tell. She is humble, down to earth and creative. She has a outgoing personality and takes time to talk to all of her fans when they message her with encouragement or questions. I look forward to seeing more from Debra E Marvin and can't wait to read more stories. 


My thoughts on Saguaro Sunset:

When I saw the cover of this book, I just knew that I wanted to read this. The cover is gorgeous. I used to live in Arizona and I have to admit that the desert can have an unspoken beauty about it especially when the sunsets. 

I love how creative Debra was in giving Teresa and her sister a unique job in running an ice cream truck. I have always thought it was fun to run an ice cream shop because it is my all time favorite dessert. I mean to make up funky flavors and just to see the happiness of the children, parents and families that would come in just to order some goodies. 

My heart kinda broke when Teresa had to give up her original job but I loved when she decided to make the most of it and to help her sister out. I would do that for my sister. I know in today's world not too many people look at it as a way to serve their family, to show people love. 

It took me a while to see who I could see playing the characters but I finally decided on the ones I am posting below:
