After her mother passes away, Lina travels to Italy for the summer to get to know the father she never knew.  There, she comes across her mother’s journal from when she lived in Italy.  As Lina reads and retraces her mother’s steps – with the help of the quite charming Ren, she learns a lot about her mother and herself.

Love & Gelato is a story of loss, love, adventure, and family.  It sweeps the reader away to the landscapes of Tuscany, heavenly-smelling hidden bakeries, and colorful gelato stands. Che bello!
