LilyRose knows her rare ability to “see” sounds
and “taste” shapes–synesthesia–is a gift that
defines who she is . . . but it’s also made her an object
of ridicule.

And made her an outcast. That is, until a mean-spirited customer mocks a young girl–and kindred spirit–she’s befriended. Years of repression suddenly give way when LilyRose hurls a basket at that customer. And finds herself being escorted from her shop in handcuffs!

For decades, LilyRose has searched for someone who could teach her to embrace her uniqueness. She just didn’t expect to find him waiting to pick her up from jail . . .

From the reviews . . .

“Raspberry Sherbet Kisses is irresistible and a completely original story. . . . Written in the first and third person, Bache’s novel has totally original characters. It bubbles with unexpected details, sparkles with humor and has an emotionally satisfying ending.”

Romantic Times Top Pick (4.5 stars)
“Readers will appreciate this fine look at a woman whose biggest problem is accepting that it is okay to be different . . . Those who mock [you] are ignorant fools unless you give them the power to limit you. . . . Kermit the Frog is right.
— Harriet Klausner
“Ellyn Bache serves up a light spring parfait with her new comic romance novel, Raspberry Sherbet Kisses. [With] more in common with Joan Medlicott or Ann B. Rosss’s novels than with the stereotypical romance, [the book is] carefree . . . entertaining . . . and just the right size to fit in a beach bag.”
— Ben Steelman, Wilmington (NC) Star-News
