Review: Love and Gelato

October 08, 2017

For those who are wondering if Love and Gelato is worth the read, I can say it is. If you are looking for a summer romance that is mostly light-hearted and a fast book, then you are in the right place. If you're in the mood for an action book or something with a lot of blood and guts, this isn't necessarily the book for you right now, but that doesn't make this book any less good.

Synopsis: Lina, in the wake of losing her mother, moves to Italy to fulfill one of her mother's last requests. While she meets her father, a man she never thought she would meet. But to meet him, she goes on a whirlwind of a journey in Italy, a country she never thought she would like. But meeting her father wasn't the only thing that Italy gave her, it also gave her love and gelato.

 Here's the Florence American Cemetery, the one where Lina moves to in the beginning of the book.  In my opinion, it's a much better cemetery than the one you would usually when you hear the word cemetery.

I wasn't quite sure what I was going to get from Love and Gelato when I first started reading it. To tell you the truth, I was slightly confused by the story, but that may have been because just ten minutes earlier I had been reading my lovely econ textbook. But after the first few chapters, I was hooked. Lina is such an interesting character, and she is definitely determined to find the truth in all situations. Ren, her love interest was also a pretty awesome character. He was kind and respectful and exactly the character that you want when you are reading a light contemporary.

I highly recommend Love and Gelato to those on a quest for a light contemporary read. It's a fast read and one that is easily enjoyed, Ren and Lina are definitely characters that you won't get tired of.

Plus, when Lina goes into the city, she goes to Florence, which in my opinion would be an awesome way to spend your summer. 

"You know, people come to Italy for all sorts of reasons, but when they stay, it's for the same two things." 
"Love and gelato." 

I give it...
