This was a highly enjoyable summer read. When I think of quintessential summer reading, I think of a book that is indulgent, entertaining, and fast-paced. Love & Gelato hit all those marks for me. The characters are well developed, the story is interesting, there are enough twists to keep the plot moving forward, and the romance is very cute. I liked getting to know all of the main characters in this story. This book could benefit from being longer, in order to flesh out different parts of the plot and characters. Some of the supporting characters could've had more time in the book. I would've liked to know more about the friend group in Italy and Addie in Seattle. However it is a great read as it is.
