“I made the wrong choice.”
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 she 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 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
So it follows a girl name Lina, who goes to live in Italy with her father who she didn’t know existed on behalf her mother’s death wish. When she gets there she receives her mother’s journal(kinda of diary) documenting her own time in Italy, and falling in love.
I may have fallen in love, with this book. I shall marry this book. I’m head over heels over this book.
So this book my heart aches for more, and more……………………………….AND IT MAKES YOU REALLY HUNGRY. BUT I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH. Its honestly such a cute book, yet at the same time such a heartbreaking book.(If you’ve read it hopefully, you hopefully know what I’m talking about.) This book so hopeful and makes me me giddy inside.
I loved every character , in this book except THAT CHARACTER, AND IF YOU READ THIS BOOK, YOU obviously KNOW WHO I’M TALKING ABOUT.
*Evil side eye* I HATE YOU…….WHAT A JERK,
BUT BESIDES THAT CHARACTER DUDE I’LL MARRY REN
There is three main characters in this that made this character honestly the best,*cough…cough* Ren.
Okay so there’s Lina, our main main character she starts to be cold and shuts down Howard(her dad) pretty quickly but it beyond understandable. She also loves to eat, I mean lets be honest we hardly ever talk about characters eating. (this is so weird). She was also rational and made decision that made sense she used her brain.
Howard was honestly a love of a character, he’s Lina’s father. He honestly made multiple times in this book, especially with his story with Hadley( Lin’s mom). He’s such a loving father, and such a good person and believable. his WHOLE CHARACTER MELTED MY HEART.
AND THEN THERE IS……….
Ren WAS MY FAVORITE EVERYTHING EVERYTHING. So like why wouldn’t anyone marry him…..he’s cute, nice,charming,funny,adorable, and he also plays soccer. Also guess what…he was actually described as a normal boy..
**GASP** I know he was just a nice boy, with curly hair who is nice and charming to everyone.
I LOVE REN WITH ALL MY HEART, AND EVERYTHING I CAN.
And also he’s a nice guy?
OHHH AND NO INSTA-LOVE?????????????????? AND ACTUAL REALISTIC RELATIONSHIP.
GUYS JUST READ THIS BOOK! I’M GOING TO BUY IT AS SOON AS I GET MONEY…..
