Book Review: Love & Gelato



TITLE: Love and Gelato

Author: Jenna Evans Welch

Series? No

RATING: ★★★★☆

4 out of 5 stars

Love and Gelato is a fun read about a girl named Lina. Lina has recently moved to Italy to live with her father when she receives an old journal from her mother who recently passed away.

This contemporary story is about young love and finding a place where you can be happy.

The story was fun and easy to read, the characters were enjoyable and there were enough twists and turns through the story that it keeps the reader interested. The suspense is a nice mixture to the blooming love.

If you like books about Italy, gelato, young romance and finding your place in this world, Love & Gelato is the book for you!

I gave the book four stars out of five because as a reader you can guess what is going to happen and who will fall in love with who. This book is great for young readers and old readers alike.



“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.



Thanks so much for reading!
