He decides to sort out the problems of his restaurant instead. This causes problems for Valentine, and Roman. Since both of them are so involved in their work. You will just have to find out what happens next.

I enjoyed reading Very Valentine. I read it for our book club. I was afraid to read it. The last time I read one of Adrianna Trigianni's novels I was disappointed with the Stone Gap series. I could not connect with the characters. But, this time around I did. I enjoyed, reading about Valentine, and her family. It reminded me of a Fat Greek Wedding.

The book was more of a fun romp, a beach read,just to escape, but I enjoyed it. Some people did not enjoy, but I read it, and I am glad I did. Thanks Shelly for recommending it for our book club.
