delicious Oct. 10 2010

Capella's 4th novel shares the expected aspects of his other books: sensuous food and delicious sex. But each of his 4 books is so different in plot and tone - and "The Empress of Ice Cream," like his others, is a total delight. Royal mistress Louise de Keroualle and her Italian admirer Carlo Demirco - who is obsessed with the creation and perfection of a new-fangled confection, ice cream - create splashes both political and personal at the Restoration court of Charles II. The end of this wonderful novel is unexpected, tender and perfect.
Charles' French Mistress . . . and Ice Cream March 19 2011
By Wendy Bertsch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Charles II of England had many colorful mistresses, and Louise de Keroualle tends to be one of the least loved by posterity. She is typically represented as a pampered whiner, but this novel portrays Louise as a strong and motivated individual. I'm not sure I agree, but who really knows, after all?

I found suspension of my disbelief somewhat strained at the idea that this proud french aristocrat would discuss such very intimate details of her life with a confectioner, however lofty -- but that didn't destroy my enjoyment of the book. It's a good read.

And you'll learn something about ice cream.

I wasn't very impressed with this storyline. Wouldn't recommend. Story didn't grab me but I read it to the end because someone else recommended it to me and I was hoping it would get better. It didn't.

I love this author.He writes with humor and great sensuality.His descriptions are so powerful that one is able to smell the coffee he describes, or in this case taste the ice-cream .The Empress of Ice Cream is an historical novel ,giving the reader an insight into the various courts of Europe.It is also a sensual romance.Having read all his other books ,I bought this on kindle and saved it for a special read,which it is.
Fun Historical Fiction March 31 2012

I am really enjoying this book. Who knew ice cream was such an important part of politics? This story of Charles in England and Louis in France is a great insight into the time after Cromwell. You don't even have to like history to enjoy the intrigues of courtiers and the development of ice cream. A fun and informative read.
