Love & Gelato," the first novel by his daughter, Jenna Evans Welch. I didn't know whether to attribute this to a father's pride or whether the book was actually any good, but I decided to give it a try.
This was my fun read for the Memorial Day holiday weekend and it was so worth it. It is a young adult romance, but can be enjoyed by anyone. After her mother's death from cancer, she is sent to Italy to live with a father who never knew she existed. When her father's friend gives her a journal that her mother kept when she was young and in Italy, Lina discovers a boatload of her mother's secrets. She sets out on a quest to discover the truth about her own beginnings with her new friend Lorenzo helping her with her search.
"Love & Gelato" is a delightful book, perfect for light summer reading. Part romance, part mystery, it will keep you turning pages and make you want to travel to Italy.
