Mattie Bryant is a frustrated teacher and perpetual fiancé to Peter Dawson.  When her aunt and uncle offer her an opportunity to own Ig-Loo, their long-established ice cream parlor, Mattie jumps at the chance to move forward after being in both personal and professional  limbo.


Elfie, a young wearable-art designer, stops by Ig-Loo one day looking for a particular flavor, and perhaps more.  She’s marked

Peter as a sucker for her capers.  But when Peter reaches

out to Mattie, she struggles between ignoring him

or putting her new life on hold to help him.


Private eye Carl Statler is a dashing British expat

who has been hired by Elfie’s family to find her.

Unbeknownst to Mattie, Peter’s nemesis, and the object

of Carl’s investigation, are one of the same.


Mattie and Carl pool their resources to untie a dangerous

knot tightening around Peter and Elfie, and in doing so find themselves caught up in a turmoil of their own!

American nurse, Carol Duncan, is visiting Venice with her siblings, unaware that she is being observed by a man about town and café owner, Sergio Bari. Carol

  is a dead ringer for his long-lost first love, Leonora Santella, and confides in his         best friend Paolo, a local actor and tour guide.


        Paolo’s rendition of the Italian lover Giacomo Casanova seems to have                     cast a spell over the Duncan family during an evening walking tour, as                 one by one, special people emerge to whisk Carol’s siblings away for                       romances of their own. Left alone, Carol keeps to her plans to enjoy the                    city’s sights and sounds but she is not alone for long. With Paolo’s sage                    advice to “strike while the iron is hot,” Sergio succeeds in meeting                            Carol, only to later learn that Leonora, his past love,

                       has returned to Venice after a decade’s absence.


                          In the spirit of Casanova, Carol and Sergio summon their                        hearts to guide them as they meld the past with the present in a quest for a love strong enough to span an ocean.


An Italian-style love story that guarantees to pull at the heartstrings!
