Addie is visiting Ireland for her aunt’s over-the-top destination wedding, and hoping she can stop thinking about the one horrible thing she did that left her miserable and heartbroken—and threatens her future. But her brother, Ian, isn’t about to let her forget, and his constant needling leads to arguments and even a fistfight between the two once inseparable siblings. Miserable, Addie can’t wait to visit her friend in Italy and leave her brother—and her problems—behind.

So when Addie discovers an unusual guidebook, Ireland for the Heartbroken, hidden in the dusty shelves of the hotel library, she’s able to finally escape her anxious mind and Ian’s criticism.

And then their travel plans change. Suddenly Addie finds herself on a whirlwind tour of the Emerald Isle, trapped in the world’s smallest vehicle with Ian and his admittedly cute, Irish-accented 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.

That is if they don’t get completely lost along the way.

Jenna Evans Welch was the kind of insatiable child reader who had no choice but to grow up to become a writer. She is the New York Times Bestselling author of LOVE & GELATO and the upcoming LOVE & LUCK. When she isn’t writing girl abroad stories, Jenna can be found chasing her children or making elaborate messes in the kitchen. She lives in Salt Lake City, Utah with her husband and two young children.

A companion book to Love & Gelato, Love & Luck can definitely be read and appreciated all on its own. I didn't find out until halfway through that Love & Gelato existed. And I was not at all lost in the story.

Love & Luck was a delightful read that took me through a wide gamut of emotions. There were some extremely humorous scenes--especially between the protagonist, Addie, and her brother, Ian. One of my favorite relationships explored through literature, is that of siblings. While romance is wonderful, I find great delight in close familial relationships and how they can shape characters. Ms. Welch handled this beautifully and realistically.

The romance was there, also. Just a little more obscure.

This was a shorter read that held my attention the entire time it was in my hands. I enjoyed every second! Even the end, which brought a tear or two my eye.

Well done, Ms. Welch! Now I need me some Love & Gelato!
