Love and Gelato is about a young girl named Lina, who just lost her mom. Before her mom passed, she urged Lina to live with an old friend of hers in Florence, Italy. Lina was obviously hesitant about it, but she decided to go anyway. She discovers more about her mom's past than she ever thought possible. Her mom was gone, but it felt like she was right there with her. Plus, Lina meets the cute and sweet Lorenzo and they become fast friends, maybe even more.
This book is like a slice of summer, even on the coldest of days. I give it 5 stars. The main characters are relatable, comedic, charming, and have you hooked immediately. I finished this book the day I started it. I was so invested in the outcome of the incredibly written storyline. It is a perfect read if you are looking for something funny, kind of mysterious, and full of love that will transport you right to Florence!
