Love & Luck Reviews
Release date: May 8, 2018
2.5 stars. I absolutely love Ireland and adored Love & Gelato by this author, so I was really looking forward to this one! I thought it was a solid contemporary YA story, but had a hard time really getting into any of it. I just didn't connect with the characters and was honestly super annoyed by the tone of the travel advice section. It was beyond irritating and unfortunately took up a lot of the book, so that really threw me out of the story.
But the road trip throu ...more
3.5 stars - I didn't love this as much as Love & Gelato, but what I did like a bit more was the setting of Ireland. I loved the tidbits from the guide book and all the details of the beautiful landscape. It totally took me back to my trip to Ireland. The fighting between Addie and her brother drove me nuts though. It got to be a bit extreme at times. I was interested to find out how Addie got her heart broken and slowly the author reveals the details to us. Full review to come.

Do you ever pick up a book because of the setting? There is something exciting about books with travel and road trips that always scream at me to read them but add in a location of Ireland and I’m sold! I came thisclose to a trip to Ireland a few years ago but had to turn it down, so it was fun to experience Ireland through the pages of Love & Luck!
The novel starts off as Addie is rolling down the hill, ‘aaaaas-youuuuu-wiiiiiish’ ...more
Loved this one. I was a little hesitant about reading a brother/sister relationship story (not the gross kind), but it was an awesome book. I think it could have been a little longer and I would have liked to know more about Addie’s story with Cubby but all in all another winner.
I WILL READ ANYTHING THIS WOMAN WRITES. MY EXCITEMENT FOR THIS BOOK IS AT UNHEALTHY LEVELS.
OH MY GOSH!
Has anybody known there will be a spin-off for "Love and gelato" about Addie?
So excited to read it!
So I am kind of sad that Welch didn't keep with the food theme... like how about Love & Soda bread 😂
Love & Luck is delightful and charming, and an absolute spring must-read. This companion novel to Jenna Evans Welch's Love & Gelato sparkles with wit, stunning settings, and even a little romance. As a huge fan of travel fiction, I was enamored with the premise of this story, and reading it was an absolute pleasure. The author does a great job of balancing the lovely plot of this story with all the breathtaking locations that readers get to visit right alongside the characters. This is o ...more
