Very Valentine by Adriana Trigiani
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The almost perfect beach read! Family drama, business (but an artistic business), food, travel and tons of Italian-American culture whipped into a lighthearted read.
So why "almost perfect"? Maybe I'm too modern, but I just didn't get Valentine's relationship with Roman. The missed Capri vacation, the lack of togetherness time, and all the hints that it wasn't going to work and yet she lets him keep the keys and she never blames him for not putting her first (although I do get that she should also have put him first, in that whole Alphonse/Gaston way).
