The Best Is Yet To Come

The odometer read 70 mph. Wind blew through my hair as the sun beamed down approvingly on me. The temperature was perfect and there wasn't a care in the world. My music was blaring and I was singing to my heart's content and.......


Oh yeah, I forgot to mention...I was doing all of this while looking through my rear view mirror.

Disclaimer: no imaginary characters were hurt in the making of this scenario.

The scenario seemed perfectly normal until you realized I was looking the wrong way, huh? But to be honest...that's how I'd be driving around mentally for years.

“I made the wrong choice.”
Lina is spending the summer in Tuscany, but she isn’t in the mood for Italy’s famous sunshine and fairy-tale landscape. She’s only there because it was her mother’s dying wish that she get to know her father. But what kind of father isn’t around for sixteen years? All Lina wants to do is get back home.
But then she is given a journal that her mom had kept when she lived in Italy. Suddenly Lina’s uncovering a magical world of secret romances, art, and hidden bakeries. A world that inspires Lina, along with the ever-so-charming Ren, to follow in her mother’s footsteps and unearth a secret that has been kept for far too long. It’s a secret that will change everything she knew about her mother, her father—and even herself.
People come to Italy for love and gelato, someone tells her, but sometimes they discover much more. [Goodreads Summary]

This book was suggested to me by one of my fellow book club friends and I must say...What a pleasant surprise!
