Today my friend Victoria and I are chatting about the book Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch.

Love & Gelato is such a fun book! It's the story of a young girl who goes to Florence, Italy to stay with a man she's never met before; a man who may just be her father. While in Italy, Lina discovers a lot about Florence, her mom, and herself. It's such a fantastic coming of age story that will make you want to travel to Italy yourself, to take in the local cuisine and all the sights! So, join Victoria and me as we chat about this fun book. We'll also chat about the new Netflix movie, of the same name.

First 15 minutes are spoiler free!

A little about Love & Gelato:

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 for far too long. It’s a secret that will change everything Lina 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.
