Summary: Addie is visiting Ireland for her aunt’s over-the-top destination wedding and hoping that she can leave the heartbreak she left behind in Seattle for good. But her brother, Ian, won’t let her forget about it, and a fight between the once-inseparable siblings becomes the highlight of their aunt’s wedding. Addie can’t wait even more to escape to Italy to see her best friend, Lina, even if it means that she won’t be able to follow an unusual guidebook, Ireland for the Heartbroken. Instead of getting to escape her brother’s criticism and taste gelato, however, travel plans change. Suddenly Addie finds herself trekking the Emerald Isle with Ian and his admittedly cute Irish friend, Rowan, Ireland for the Heartbroken in tow.
My Rating: 4/5 Stars
After finishing and really enjoying Jenna Evans Welch’s Love & Gelato, I immediately picked up its sequel/companion, Love & Luck. I’ve been getting back into the binge-reading/almost binge-reading spirit this summer, so it was fun to read Love & Gelato and Love & Luck close together (they were only two books apart for me!).
Love & Luck follows Lina’s best friend, Addie, and her mini vacation to Ireland for her aunt’s wedding. Addie plans to fly to Italy with her brother right after the wedding to see Lina, but as one may expect in a fun, travel-inspired contemporary, things don’t go exactly to plan.
