As if we weren’t going to jump at a chance to give away a modern re-telling of A Room With a View, only my favorite period movie ever. Don’t you know me at all?

If only I were zipping around Italy on the back of a Vespa! Reading about it is, I suppose, the next best thing.

THE PRIZE: We’re delighted to have three copies of Love, Lucy to give away. Let’s virtually flip it over and read the back, shall we? From Amazon:

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.

In this coming-of-age romance, April Lindner perfectly captures the highs and lows of a summer love that might just be meant to last beyond the season.

I look forward to reading this myself, and not only so I can figure out how she rebooted the infamous Skinny Dipping scene!

THE TASK: I shall be picking the winner at random, but to keep it fun, name your own favorite period film. Good luck!
