Summary (from Goodreads):

“I made the wrong choice.”

Lina is spending the summer in Tuscany, but she isn’t in the mood for Italy’s famous sunshine and fairy-tale landscape. She’s only there because it was her mother’s dying wish that she get to know her father. But what kind of father isn’t around for sixteen years? All Lina wants to do is get back home.

But then she is given a journal that her mom had kept when she lived in Italy. Suddenly Lina’s uncovering a magical world of secret romances, art, and hidden bakeries. A world that inspires Lina, along with the ever-so-charming Ren, to follow in her mother’s footsteps and unearth a secret that has been kept for far too long. It’s a secret that will change everything she knew about her mother, her father—and even herself.

People come to Italy for love and gelato, someone tells her, but sometimes they discover much more.

Amazon “Book Depository

I can tell that I am going to love this book! I am very intrigued by the Italian elements and the idea of the main character receiving an old journal. I’m not too far into the book, but I am very excited to keep reading.

Book Quotes: Love & Gelato

“I pulled my head back in then took the slip of paper out of my pocket. Time to start plotting my escape.”

    I have to read this soon! I was going to pick it up after I finished ACOMAF earlier, but I’m now in the mood for a really good new adult novel lol

      I really want to start ACOMAF! I saw some of your Twitter updates and I was feeling the need to abandon everything to read it! This one is so much fun, though so I will continue on with it! <3
