A summer in Italy turns into a road trip across Tuscany in this sweeping debut novel filled with romance, mystery, and adventure.

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.

    This book is beautifully written and I was so deep in this book I couldn't wait to flip to the next page and when it ended I was happy but wanted so much more. One of my new favorites for sure. I could visualize everything and all the places written about you could google and it was real which made it intriguing. I could reread this over and over again! Loved it and can't wait to visit Italy!!
