Happy almost weekend!
You all! This book was romcom perfection! The romance, the setting, the food!👩❤️💋👨
Three men. Three countries. And a whole lot of food. Jen McKinlay will tug at your heartstrings and feed your travel bug with this delightful story. Chelsea’s Life completely changed seven years ago after the death of her mother. She has thrown herself into her job where she works for a Cancer nonprofit. She excels at fundraising, but has no personal life. When her father announces he is getting remarried Chelsea is distraught. BUT the unwelcome news makes her realize she has not been happy for a long time. Determined to find her happiness again Chelsea decides to return to the place she was last happy… on her European gap year trip. So off to Ireland, Paris, and Italy Chelsea goes. Not only to find her happiness, but to also rediscover who she once was and perhaps fall in love with one of the men she left behind.
What a fun book! The food… the setting… the amour… did I mention the food? Loved traveling around Europe with Chelsea! There were so many laugh out loud moments and I loved meeting all these charming or perhaps not so charming men. Although I have to say I was partial to Jason her American coworker who showed up in Paris unannounced, because of course Chelsea had some work to do on her vacation. Jason really perfectly balanced out uptight Chelsea. I love the banter and the chemistry between these two. From the second he showed up in front of her door with her suitcase in hand (long story) I was rooting for him. I really can’t say enough good things about this book, it truly was romcom perfection!

About the Book
One of Popsugar’s Best New Books for Summer 2020
A 30-year-old woman retraces her gap year through Ireland, France, and Italy to find love – and herself – in this hilarious and heartfelt novel.
It’s been seven years since Chelsea Martin embarked on her yearlong postcollege European adventure. Since then, she’s lost her mother to cancer and watched her sister marry twice, while Chelsea’s thrown herself into work, becoming one of the most talented fundraisers for the American Cancer Coalition, and with the exception of one annoyingly competent coworker, Jason Knightley, her status as most successful moneymaker is unquestioned.
When her introverted mathematician father announces he’s getting remarried, Chelsea is forced to acknowledge that her life stopped after her mother died and that the last time she can remember being happy, in love, or enjoying her life was on her year abroad. Inspired to retrace her steps – to find Colin in Ireland, Jean Claude in France, and Marcelino in Italy – Chelsea hopes that one of these three men who stole her heart so many years ago can help her find it again.
From the start of her journey nothing goes as planned, but as Chelsea reconnects with her old self, she also finds love in the very last place she expected.
Have a beautiful day! XOXO Berit 💕
