A New York Times bestseller A Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club YA Pick Love & Gelato meets Don't Date Rosa Santos in this charming, heartfelt story following a Miami girl who unexpectedly finds love--and herself--in a small English town. For Lila Reyes, a summer in England was never part of the plan. The plan was 1) take over her abuela's role as head baker at their panadería, 2) move in with her best friend after graduation, and 3) live happily ever after with her boyfriend. But then the Trifecta happened, and everything--including Lila herself--fell apart. Worried about Lila's mental health, her parents make a new plan for her: spend three months with family friends in Winchester, England, to relax and reset. But with the lack of sun, a grumpy inn cook, and a small town lacking Miami flavor (both in food and otherwise), what would be a dream trip for some feels more like a nightmare to Lila...until she meets Orion Maxwell. A teashop clerk with troubles of his own, Orion is determined to help Lila out of her funk, and appoints himself as her personal tour guide. From Winchester's drama-filled music scene to the sweeping English countryside, it isn't long before Lila is not only charmed by Orion, but England itself. Soon a new future is beginning to form in Lila's mind--one that would mean leaving everything she ever planned behind.… (més)

So many descriptions of delicious food, oh my.

Not a fan of the audiobook. The narrator couldn't do English accents and everytime she tried I cringed. :/ ( )

3.5 Stars - Update: I've decided to round up to 4 because 2 hours after finishing I am still thinking about the last quarter of the book and that earns an extra half star because it has left an impression.

CW: Dealing with the loss of a loved one, breakups (friendship and romantic), mental health issues - girl runs to the brink of collapse and has suffered some significant damage to her body after a break down due to the loss of her abuela.

Well that ended up being quite a lovely book about family, friendship and having the courage to choose your own destiny.

I feel obliged to put in a PSA.

Public Service Announcement
You will want to eat baked goods whilst reading this. I suggest having some ready in advance. Go for something a bit decadent like a bakery pastry, *whispers* I had 3, because a dry chocolate chip cookie will not cut it (nor will the next 2). If you are a baker, have all the ingredients ready so you can whip up a sweet masterpiece in the kitchen.
End of public service announcement.

The food descriptions in this novel are out of this world and the love of this ownvoice author for their Cuban culture and traditional food was clearly evident in the passionate descriptions throughout the book. I wasn't really drawn into the romantic relationship until quite a way through the book, but the family connections kept me engaged throughout the entire story. The book touches on some important themes such as dealing with grief and finding a way forward after a tragic loss. It also looks at how Lila struggles to find the courage to deviate from her life plan when a new and potentially better one presents itself. A heartwarming story. ( )

I really enjoyed this story, the mashing together of two cultures, of food and love for home and a new home. I cried at some parts, laughed out loud at others, empathized with Lila and fell in love with a boy named after a star. And became really hungry from the incredible and edible descriptions of the foods Lila created and baked in an English Inn. It was a story of self discovery, finding out that no matter where life takes you, home will follow. ( )

An avalanche of grief—the death of her beloved Abuela, first love lost, and the betrayal of a best friend—is just too much for 17-year-old Lila Reyes. Part romance, part foodie heaven, the warm atmosphere will make readers want to cook and dance and love.(Fiction. 13-18)
