Description

People go to Italy for love & gelato ... but sometimes they discover much more.

The dying wish of 16-year-old Lina's mother was for her daughter to live in Tuscany and get to know her father, whom Lina has never met. "Howard is the best man I've ever known," her mother says, "he'll keep you safe." Why did her mother wait so long to tell her about him? Lina has a happy life in Seattle and doesn't want to leave. Shortly after she arrives at Howard's home, Lina meets Sonya, who gives Lina a diary that belonged to Lina's mother, the one she had kept while she was a photography student in Florence. While Lina is living her life and exploring Tuscany with her handsome neighbour, Ren, she follows in the footsteps of her mother and gets to know her as never before. She also finds out the truth about her father. Mostly she finds out about herself.

Review quote

"Love & Gelato is the perfect summer read! The writing is smooth, using all five senses to draw you into a breathtaking world of heartache, new love and the magical country that is Italy.[...] All in all I can't wait for this authors next book - I just discovered it will be set in Ireland - which I'm super excited for! Jenna Evans Welch is definitely a writer to watch out for. Swoon-worthy, emotional and full of colour, I give Love & Gelato 4 stars!" * whisperingwords747.blogspot.co.uk * "Overall, this is a quick, light-hearted summer read." * thebookbag.co.uk * Ice cream and Italy are the perfect summer partners in Love & Gelato * S magazine and Sunday Express online *
