Just in time for Valentine's Day, here it is: the cover of my new novel, Love, Lucy. Words can't express how much I love it--the cherry red Vespa, the sun-drenched Italian archway, the charming cover typeface--all of it.
And here's some jacket copy:
"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 are over, too."
The book is set half in Italy--Florence and Rome--and half in Philadelphia, and it's due out in January, 2015. And though it's very much it's own thing, it draws inspiration from E. M. Forster's A Room With a View.
