A contest to see Adriana and now a GIVEAWAY to read Adriana! You don't have to be a blogger to win this prize. I have 5 copies of the paperback, Very Valentine, to give away. Please leave a comment and you will be entered to win. How easy is that?
Very Valentine tells the story of Valentine Roncalli, a thirty-three year old, who is struggling to bring her family's Greenwich Village shoe business out of financial distress while dealing with her family's personal dynamics, a trip to Italy to learn more about the shoe business, and her new chef-boyfriend, Roman Falconi. Filled with ups and downs, secrets, love, lost, and humor, Very Valentine is a treat for reading groups that want a great read full of characters with real life issues. Adriana fills the story with such a sense of place and love of Greenwich Village. The paperback even has recipes to help your book discussion, especially Teodaro's Limoncello. Lemons, vodka, and a big mason jar. What a hoot!
And, Adriana's new book, Brava, Valentine, will be released February 9. Yea! More of Valentine Roncalli and her family's hi-jinks with a touching and humorous wink at life's lessons.
Have you read any Adriana's books? Let me know and you will be entered in the Very Valentine giveaway! (sssh -- I'll be giving away Brava, Valentine next month!)
