Waiting on Wednesday: 'love Lucy' by April Lindner

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This weeks book will be:

Author: April Lindner 

Publication date: January 27, 2015


While backpacking through Florence, Italy, during the summer before she heads off to college, Lucy Sommersworth finds herself falling in love with the culture, the architecture, the food...and Jesse Palladino, a handsome street musician. After a whirlwind romance, Lucy returns home, determined to move on from her "vacation flirtation." But just because summer is over doesn't mean Lucy and Jesse are over, too.

In this coming-of-age romance, April Lindner perfectly captures the highs and lows of a summer love that might just be meant to last beyond the season.

My opinion:

The story sounds so amazing. Once I've seen a movie with Amanda Seyfried in it which took place In Italy and this book reminds me of that. I absolutely loved the movie, so I'll probably also will love the book as well. The cover just stunning! Shame we have to wait till end of January to get our hands on a copy.
