Publisher's Summary

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 16 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 even herself.

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

    "Love, Gelato and More!"

    Italy also stood out to me as a vital character in this story. I wasn't particularly wanting a young adult novel, but everything about it flowed as beaurifully as a ride in Tuscany. It was very satisfying to be taken back to the my favorite travel destination.

    Story
    "Witty and Enjoyably Intriguing! "

    Usually can't finish young adult novels, but I found myself smiling often and wanting to visit Italy. I enjoyed how witty and surprisingly intrigued I was with the plot. I will be reading the next Jenna Evans Welch novel.

    "Loved It!"

    This book was fantastic. I loved the love story of the teens and it gave me butterflies and reminded me of my youth. I liked the mystery part of the story too. Narrator was very good, especially with the different accents.

    Story
    "Enjoyed this cotton candy YA story!"

    This is a journey of a 16-year old girl trying to puzzle some pieces in Italy. She ends up finding more than she expected when she reads her deceased mother's journal. I enjoy books that highlight touristy sites in other countries. This is age-appropriate, no foul language, there is kissing and one fade-to-black scene written in the mother's journal. I took 1 star from Story because I wish things had been different for the mother. I do recommend this YA for a credit.

    Story
    "Happy fluff"

    I really liked this book - excellent escapism, especially after listening to a thriller. I would have liked a different narrator for the journal entries - the narrator did a great job but having 2 narrators would have helped separate them. I had to go back a couple times to figure out when we'd skipped in time and then realized it was a journal entry.
