My book talk: With their stock of secret-recipe ice cream dwindling, head girl Amelia tries to lead this summer’s Meade Creamery girls as older scoopers taught her.

But when the founder’s great-nephew Grady’s arrives with spreadsheets and profitability concerns, she must balance his demands with local expectations, while trying to find the recipes that Molly Meade created when her sweetheart didn’t return from World War II.

Molly’s wartime letters to her best friend alternate with Amelia struggles today at the ice cream stand with her best friend and new scoop girls as they work to keep a local tradition alive for one more summer, despite Grady’s business major viewpoint and Amelia’s growing feelings for him.
