Lost in Rome by Cindy Callaghan

Lucy was going to be a camp counselor but when camp gets cancelled, she gets to Italy with her sister to go work in her aunt's pizza shop.  When they get there, they find only one can work in the pizza shop.  So Lucy does that and her older sister works with the woman upstairs who sews.  Bling is the older sister's thing.  But why is the shop so run down?

Aladdin and Edelweiss allowed me to read this ebook for review (thank you).  It will be published August 11th.

This is a cute series.  I like Lucy as a character.  She's sweet and cares about people.  The two sisters and the local help fix up the shop to modernize it and improve it.  Lucy starts matchmaking, and the aunt shares her troubles.

Lucy's older sister likes the boy from the competing pizza shop.  Her aunt forbids her to see him, to no avail.  Lucy is ready to blame him for the problems they encounter in the shop.  In time, she realizes who the culprit is.  She also manages to do some matchmaking for her aunt.

This was a good story and looks like it's a good series.  There are even a few surprises in the story.  It's a very enjoyable story for young readers.
