Summary (from goodreads):
While backpacking through Florence, Italy, during the summer before she heads off to college, Lucy Sommersworth finds herself falling in love with the culture, the architecture, the food...and Jesse Palladino, a handsome street musician. After a whirlwind romance, Lucy returns home, determined to move on from her "vacation flirtation." But just because summer is over doesn't mean Lucy and Jesse have to be, does it?Things I Liked:
Enjoyable, but not amazing. I loved the retelling aspects, though it's been so long since I read A Room with a View that I'm not sure I have a leg to stand on there. It was kind of a fun romp read. Reminded me a lot of Just One Day.
Things I Didn't Like:
It was fun, really, but I always feel like books with characters who fall in love with someone in a night and go off to do crazy stuff with them are just not believable. I think this is just because there's no way I would do that. I guess reading about it is as close as I will ever get.
