Customer Reviews of Very Valentine: A Novel

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like Trigiani's writing style Italian-American Valentine is 33-years old and lives and works with her grandmother in New York City. Gram runs a shoe making company; they hand-make wedding shoes and the company has been in business since 1903. Unfortunately, the company is in financial trouble, and Valentine is not sure what will happen if her brother gets his way and Gram decides to sell. In the meantime, Valentine has met a very busy chef and they are trying to maintain a relationship. I really liked this. This is the second book I've read by Trigiani and I really enjoy her writing. I often don't like long descriptions, but even though some of Trigiani's descriptions are long and very detailed, there is something about the way she writes that keeps me interested, and enjoying the detail as it brings whatever she is describing to life.
