“Sex and the City meets Moonstruck….Sly, sensual, and dripping in style.”—People Poignant, funny, warm, and red hot, Very Valentine is a wonderful treat for Adriana Trigiani fans—a “delightful” (Boston Globe), “romance-soaked novel” (Marie Claire) from much adored playwright, screenwriter, documentary filmmaker, and New York Times bestselling author of Lucia, Lucia; Rococo; and Big Stone Gap. The adventures of an extraordinary and unforgettable woman as she attempts to rescue her family’s struggling shoe business and find love at the same time, Very Valentine sweeps the reader from the streets of Manhattan to the picturesque hills of la bella Italia. Already a national bestseller, here is a valentine from the incomparable Trigiani that you can take into your heart.
If you love a descriptive author who weaves her story with tradition, food and fashion, this is your kind of book. I may be rating this a little higher than I normally would because I will be in Tuscany soon Adriana captures the countryside of Tuscany so vividly using familiar smells and vivid colors to being me into the moment. I enjoyed the story, even with the under-played relationships with the men in her life.
