Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, showcasing book(s) that we are currently anticipating for their releases. This week, I’m currently looking forward to the release of Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch, which will be released on May 3rd 2016. I just love the pastel colours and ice-creams on the cover. 🙂
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 even herself.
People come to Italy for love and gelato, someone tells her, but sometimes they discover much more.
