Summary:

“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.

    Loved it! Especially meaningful if you come from a large Italian family (which I do). First of a trilogy? Where are the rest? The only thing, what was with the music? The music itself was nice, but it was just interjected in random places. At times, because the narration was paused, I thought I was actually getting a phone call! Then the narration started again and the music faded. I mean, I'm all for music in the right places, it can add a certain mood etc. The music in this book was just in weird places and didn't add anything to the story.

    Very Valentine is very enjoyable. The author makes you feel and taste the Italian American food, family and way of life. The parts in Italy make you eager to take in the country rich in culture and tradition.

    Like having someone read you fashion magazine descriptions of shoes, clothes and furniture for 14 hours. Oh, and food and the sky too. Maybe if it had not been in first person, the only viewpoint that of the poor-me 'heroine', it might have been more interesting.

    Good narrator, good story. A few times I thought I was ahead of the book, and it would turn just a little differntly that I thought it would go, adding another dimesion to the story. I was concerned by its length, thinking it might be a lot of extra unnecessary parts, but it was very good, and making it shorter would have been to the story's detriment. Well written.
