The Star-Crossed Sisters of Tuscany by Lori Nelson Spielman

Not one of the second born Fontana sisters has found love.  This generation of daughters is determined to prove that false.

Then an old aunt of theirs invites them on an expense paid trip to Italy.  She's to meet the love of her life there on the church steps on her 80th birthday.

Berkley and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It is being published today.

As they travel through Italy, there are sexual encounters and temporary love but nothing long-lasting.

Their aunt's love never shows up but they find out he's ill.  Poppy goes to visit and he gets better.  Their love is still alive.

They learn many family secrets, some not so nice.  As the others get ready to go home, Emilia decides to stay.  She's tired of her mother running her life.  She's inherited an apartment and after the papers have been signed, she goes to visit it.  A man stops her and swears he's met her before.  She doesn't remember him but takes his phone number.  While she's looking at the apartment she realizes he was the one she called an avocado.  She calls him to remind him.  Who knows, maybe she can find love in Italy...
