Blog Tour Review + Giveaway—Love & Luck by Jenna Evans Welch

Love & Luck by 
by Jenna Evans Welch
Publisher: Simon Pulse 
Release Date: May 8, 2018 
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance 

Addie is visiting Ireland for her aunt’s over-the-top destination wedding, and hoping 
she can stop thinking about the one horrible thing she did that left her miserable and
heartbroken—and threatens her future. But her brother, Ian, isn’t about to let her for-
get, and his constant needling leads to arguments and even a fistfight between the 
two once inseparable siblings. Miserable, Addie can’t wait to visit her friend in Italy 
and leave her brother—and her problems—behind.
So when Addie discovers an unusual guidebook, Ireland for the Heartbroken, hidden 
in the dusty shelves of the hotel library, she’s able to finally escape her anxious mind 
and Ian’s criticism.

And then their travel plans change. Suddenly Addie finds herself on a whirlwind tour 
of the Emerald Isle, trapped in the world’s smallest vehicle with Ian and his admitted-
ly cute, Irish-accented friend Rowan. As the trio journeys over breathtaking green 
hills, past countless castles, and through a number of fairy-tale forests, Addie hopes
her guidebook will heal not only her broken heart, but also her shattered relationship 
with her brother.
That is if they don’t get completely lost along the way. 

I’m crying so many happy tears right now. That was such a great book that was more about romance. It had a different type of love—the power of being best friends with your sibling. Addie and her brother, Ian. They had a falling out and don’t seem to know how to get back to the the way things were before. Can it be done? What secrets are Ian and Addie hiding?

I adored that the story took place in Ireland—it’s on my bucket list of places I want to visit. After something terrible happened with the boy Addie’s been in love with for years, life as she knows it won’t ever be the same. Her family is in Ireland for a wedding and then Addie will be visiting Lina, her best friend. Many of you that have read Love & Gelato and met Lina when she moved to Italy. 

Upon leaving for the trip to Italy—with Ian in tow—things don’t go according to plan. Do they ever? We’re taken on a roadtrip in the beautiful Irish country; where secrets come out and maybe, just maybe Addie and Ian could resolve their issues. 

The sibling relationship is what really sold and made the book what it was. Yes, the romance aspect of the story took the backseat but I didn’t care. I wanted Addie and her brother to mend their relationship so bad—you could clearly tell they were best friends and cared so much about each other. It was beautiful. I liked the way the book ended and is it too soon to ask the author for another story set in the same world?!
