So over Christmas break my second fun-book was Very Valentine by Adriana Trigiani.

Very Valentine is the cute and highly descriptive tale of Valentine, an Italian American living in New York with her grandmother, a famous crafter of handmade shoes. Unfortunately, Grams isn't terribly business-savvy and their about to lose their business (which they also live over). So what's a girl to do? Fall in love with a gorgeous chef, try really hard to save the business in order to spite her money-grubbing brother who's after the brownstone and plan an escape trip to Italy!

The descriptions are really fantastic-- from the descriptions of the food, to the shoes, to the sprawling Italian countryside and the secret caves in Capri... all of it really made me want to plan a trip to Italy.

Trigiani has also recently written a YA novel and a sequel to Very Valentine called Brava, Valentine (and apparently there is a trip to Argentina! Mayhaps we have just met book 52. Perhaps, Reader. Perhaps.
