From New York Times bestselling author Jenna Evans Welch comes a boxed set of three romances set in the beautiful countrysides of Italy, Ireland, and Greece about life, love, and the true meaning of family.
Teen girls find themselves—and maybe even true love—while visiting faraway places in these charming and swoon-worthy books.
In Love & Gelato, Lina reluctantly fulfills her mother’s dying wish by traveling to Florence to spend the summer with the birth father she never met. When she finds her mother’s old journal, the summer becomes about discovering the landscape through her mother’s eyes. With her new friend, Ren, as her travel companion, Lina discovers unexpected things about her late mother, her real father, and herself.
Addie visits Ireland for her aunt’s over-the-top destination wedding in Love & Luck. She’s hoping the distance from home will help her forget the mistake she made that left her miserable and alienated from her brother. And when she discovers the unusual guidebook Ireland for the Heartbroken, Addie finds herself on a whirlwind tour of the Emerald Isle with her brother and his Irish friend, Rowan. As the trio journeys over breathtaking green hills, past countless castles, and through a number of fairy tale forests, Addie hopes her guidebook will heal not only her broken heart, but also her shattered relationship with her brother.
In Love & Olives, Evie goes to Greece to reconnect with her father who left her when she was only eight, and help him with his documentary about the lost city of Atlantis, an interest they’ve always shared. Evie struggles to keep her questions and resentments at bay while exploring stunning Santorini—the turquoise water, the hidden caves, and the rich history—with her father’s research assistant, Theo, at her side. But soon it becomes clear that the documentary isn’t what it seems and Evie’s father may have invited her to Greece for something much more important.
