“Delightful, energetic. . . . Trigiani is a seemingly effortless storyteller.” — Boston Globe
Award-winning playwright, television writer, and documentary filmmaker Adriana Trigiani returns with Brava, Valentine, continuing the heartwarming and hilarious story of Valentine Roncalli, her family, her love life, and the Angelini Shoe Company.

Adriana Trigiani's bestselling novels, called "dazzling"* and "tiramisu for the soul,"** are beloved by millions of readers around the world. Very Valentine, an instant New York Times bestseller and the first in a series about the life of shoemaker Valentine Roncalli, was hailed by critics as "Sex and the City meets Moonstruck . . . sly, sensual, dripping in style."***
In this sumptuous follow-up, a once-in-a-lifetime business opportunity takes Valentine from the winding streets of Greenwich Village to the sun-kissed cobblestones of Buenos Aires, where she finds a long-buried secret hidden deep within a family scandal. Once unearthed, the truth rocks the Roncallis, while Valentine 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.
