Alex Carrick is entertaining, funny and light-hearted in his writings. Not one, not two, but 78 stories are available in "Two Scoops Is Just Right". A quick and east read that will keep you immersed in his humor all the way through. I loved it!

A terrific, light and humourous read for anyone who needs a break from daily toil. All about the work, family, friends and occasional flights of fancy that life is made of.
Qualifier: Alex is my husband. Lucky me!
