As Brava, Valentine begins, Valentine learns that Alfred, her only brother and nemesis, has been named her partner at Angelini Shoes. Devastated, Valentine falls into the arms of Gianluca, a sexy Tuscan tanner. Despite their passion for one another, a long-distance relationship seems impossible.

As Valentine turns away from romance and devotes herself to her work, Bret Fitzpatrick, her first love and former fiancé, encourages Valentine to exploit her full potential as a designer with a plan that will bring her singular creations to the world. A once-in-a-lifetime business opportunity takes Valentine to Buenos Aires, where she finds a long-buried secret. Once unearthed, the truth rocks the Roncallis, and Valentine is determined to hold her family together. More so, she longs to create one of her own but is torn between a past love that nurtured her and a new one that promises to sustain her.

Brava, Valentine is Trigiani’s best novel yet, delivering a hilarious and poignant mix of colorful worlds and unforgettable characters as only she can create them.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jodi | 2/7/2014

    " Enjoyed this one far more than the first book about Valentine. I liked seeing her grow up a little bit more and some of the major family issues being settled. It was especially powerful to watch Alfred go through his own affair (although very few details were given) and watch how that changed his relationship with the whole family. I thought it was hard to have Gram move to Italy but at the same time I don't see how Valentine could have grown as much if she hadn't. I'm hoping there is another book so we can see what happens now that she has accepted Gianluca's proposal and how they will work out a marriage when they live so far apart. "

    " I had to wait for several months at my local library for this book to be available to me, and at first, I was disappointed. The first quarter of the book was a lot of interior dialogue that I found boring about adult children who were petulent, self-centered etc. However, I did get swept up in the family saga as family members showed some chinks in their armor, obstacles forced emotional growth, and new developments engaged me. I truly loved two characters in the book, a gay man and a seventy one year old free spirited woman whose perspectives on life and love had were substantial, moving and often unexpected. "

    " Can't wait for the next one. The only book by this author I don't like is Rococo. "
