Again, I am slacking on recommending you guys contemporary novels that are coming out this year. I have an ARC of this one, so I figured I'd let you know about it! This week I'm waiting on...
LOVE & GELATO by Jenna Evans Welch
Title: LOVE & GELATO
Author: Jenna Evans Welch
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: April 12, 2016
A summer in Italy turns into a road trip across Tuscany in this sweeping debut novel filled with romance, mystery, and adventure.
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 Lina 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 from Lina for far too long. It’s a secret that will change everything she knew about her mother, her father—and ever herself.
People come to Italy for love and gelato, someone tells her, but sometimes they discover much more.
I have a copy of this on my bookshelf and will be reading it over the next couple of days! I am really excited for a light contemporary romance. I will let you guys know how it is!
