From the author of the New York Times bestselling Love & Gelato comes a heartwarming tale of love, adventure, and the true meaning behind the word family. Addie is visiting Ireland for her aunts over-the-top destination wedding, and hoping she can stop thinking about the one horrible thing she did that left her miserable and heartbrokenand threatens her future. But her brother, Ian, isnt about to let her forget, and his constant needling leads to arguments and even a fistfight between the two once inseparable siblings. Miserable, Addie cant wait to visit her friend in Italy and leave her brotherand her problemsbehind. So when Addie discovers an unusual guidebook, Ireland for the Heartbroken, hidden in the dusty shelves of the hotel library, shes able to finally escape her anxious mind and Ians criticism. And then their travel plans change. Suddenly Addie finds herself on a whirlwind tour of the Emerald Isle, trapped in the worlds 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 dont get completely lost along the way.

This a little predictable but cut. I liked that it focused on a brother sister relationship and not romance.

I enjoyed this cute YA book. It wasn‘t as good as her first one, but still fun. I like how she incorporates different countries into her writing. She has a way of really@making you feel like you are there with the characters.

4/5 stars. This book was quirky and adorable. But i felt like the lead up to the big reveal that they hint at the entire book, was not handled the best. I also did not realize that the main characters best friend has her own book that came before this book!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I LOVED this book! This follows Addie which is the best friend from Lina the main character from Love & Gelato! She is in Ireland with all her family at an aunt‘s destination wedding! Things happen and we meet new characters and follow them through many adventures in Ireland! I just loved everything about this book! I shed a tear or two in some parts and laughed in others.. I can‘t wait for her next book! #theunreadshelfproject2019

I enjoyed this sequel to Love and Gelato. I read both books with my HS daughter. Lots of issues to talk through in both stories.

A couple of months ago I got accepted into the British Library and Libraries Connected mentoring program; today I finally got to meet my mentor! We spent all morning talking libraries and personal goals over multiple cups of coffee 📚☕️ As an immigrant, it feels amazing to be making strides and gaining more experience! I definitely deserve this super over-the-top bubble bath and sweet summer romance 💕

JennyM Congrats! That‘s awesome. 😘 7mo

This has been on my TBR since it came out. I loved her first book (whose characters make cameos) I‘m glad I finally read it. What a fun YA book. I breezed through this quickly. This book also offers some good discussion points for talking with teens.

CogsOfEncouragement My daughter and I are sharing a library book to read this now. We adored Love & Gelato. 8mo

Book 2 in a series, but could totally stand alone. YA but despite the title, not a romance. The story focused around a close brother-sister duo who are each coming into their own and struggling with some things. A very clean story but dealt with the hard topic that needs to be included regarding current social issues in a technology driven era. I loved that while Addie is the little sister she is the one in-the-know with car maintenance.

Finished my #LMPBC book with plenty of time, this is headed your way @ErinSueG should be there by Friday. I didn‘t love this one, but it was cute enough to buoy me through. I loved reading @LiteraryinLititz and @kstadt929 comments on this one though!

LiteraryinLititz Your picture is so pretty!! I think that reading everyone‘s comments is the best part of the #lmpbc. That reminds me- I have to read 1y
ErinSueMreads Essie kind of blew my mind in the end. I got the last one you sent and am planning to start it ASAP! Essie should be to its next home soon! 1y
kstadt929 @ErinSueG (Not sure if this means you sent it yet?) But if I get it before Sunday I‘ll take it on our mini-honeymoon next week! Our actual honeymoon is next spring, but we are going to our cabin next week = reading and relaxing. If I don‘t get it by then, no worries 😊 Haven‘t has much reading time anyway lately so it would probably just be sitting on my TBR pile 😋 1y

I thought this would be a cheesy teen romance but BOY WAS I WRONG! This book was well written, funny and surprisingly endearing. Addie finds herself in Ireland attempting to mend her broken heart. Even though my situation is very different from hers I found myself relating to Addie because I too recently had my heart broken 💔 This book was the comfort I didn't know I needed. Just as Addie found ways to let go and move on, so did I 🤗😌💚 🍀

Just finished my August book for #lmpbc and it was a fast, light read! I liked reading the comments by @kstadt929 . I think my tepid reaction is more about my reading mood. Lately I‘ve read books that go a little deeper. The issues in this book struck me as first world problems that the characters were blowing out of proportion. Some of the conversations were too twee for me. But if you‘re in the mood for this genre it‘s a charming, sweet book.

kstadt929 Oh I agree, but I think that‘s why I liked it - because it was a light read and not serious problems 😋 Your next book will be running late as I‘ve had almost zero time to read since it arrived. I‘ll do my best to get to it soon!!!! 1y
LiteraryinLititz @kstadt929 Don‘t worry about it! I have a million books out from the library right now so believe me, I‘m not lacking reading material. 😋 1y
LiteraryinLititz @Mem_ugh I mailed this today and it should arrive on Friday! 1y
Mem_ugh @LiteraryinLititz excellent! I look forward to it! I‘ll have to get my new address to you for the next one. @ErinSueG I‘m running a little late with getting this one sent out to you, new job, new town, lots of life stuff happening. I‘m doing my best to get it done by the end of this long weekend though 1y

This was an okay read for me. YA is hard for me. I don‘t relate, but have to remember that at one point, not so many years ago, I did relate. I had those feelings, made those mistakes. I enjoyed the characters, the relationships, the rebuilding of relationships. I am opening my reading boundaries, and this book helped me to that.

Hey #LMPBC group S! I bought a pack of 4 different magnetic elephant bookmarks I‘ll be sending with my book so you can each pick one!

Finally starting my #LPMBC book! This is my first time doing this and I don‘t usually write in books so we will see how this goes 😁 @Mem_ugh @ErinSueG @LiteraryinLititz

ErinSueMreads I started mine over the weekend!! That first highlight was ridiculously hard! I‘m still writing everything on stickies 😂😂😂 2y
Lovesbooks87 I did mine a couple of weeks ago and it was hard. I would get into the book and realize that I hadn't been marking it up. The book you are reading was really good and I enjoyed it! 2y
LiteraryinLititz You can do it!! I started mine last week and am liking it so far. For me, writing in pen in the margins is easier than sticky notes or highlighting, but everyone is different! Another possibility is to sort of check in with how you‘re feeling in the break between chapters and write a sentence or two there. 2y
kstadt929 @LiteraryinLititz okay it HAS been super fun so far!!! I have found that it depends how big the gaps are if you can add in writing on the side or if you need a sticky. The problem I‘m having with sticky notes is I don‘t want people to have to keep moving them to see the book text so I have been trying to write in margins. I‘m excited to get other books from the group to read others thoughts too! 2y
Mem_ugh I‘ve been reading mine pretty slowly because I have to keep remembering to mark it up! 😂 I‘m excited for this one! I‘ve been writing in the margins and at the end of chapters. 2y

Just as good as the first one. Addie takes an impromptu road trip around Ireland with her brother and tries to mend her heartbreak in the process. Great story on learning to listen to and rely on the people who love you.

Love and Gelato was the better between the two books Jenna Evans Welch wrote though this was pretty good as well. This is about Addie and her brother Ian on a summer adventure not as Addie had planned (or their mom) but as Ian had planned. Instead of going to Italy to see her best friend, Addie ends up going with Ian and his friend Rowan on a road trip across Ireland.
