Food for Thought : Encore Valentine

By Adriana Trigiani

" I am no master craftsman when it comes to love, strictly an apprentice in training"

" I am best self, the most alive I can be, when I'm creating in the shop. I would never admit this to a man I was interested in, but it's the truth. ( That sounds like me :P )Love is not the main course in the banquet of my life. It's dessert. My mother would say that's why I'm still single. And my sisters would say that I'm lying. But I know this to be true, that love is my treat, my tiramisu, because I'm living it. I know about women who drop the lives they lead in one place to go and be with a man in another. I'm fascinated by their impulse to  choose the possibility of love over the certainty of work. I would never leave my work behind for a man, no matter how scrumptious he might be. I am, however interested in romance on my own terms, and in my own time." Page 100

Valentine Roncalli from New York carrying her familly legacy the "Angelini Shoe Company" for excuisite wedding shoes discovers a business opportunity in a long burried family ties in Buenos Aires ..
A mix of love, family, and perfect handmade shoes Valentina finds herself torn between carrying her family bussiness after her Grandmother gets married and balancing her love life..

I really loved the way the story started at Teodora wedding in Italy, back to New York, then in Buenos Aires, the second book I read for the same author and ofcourse revolving around a family bussiness of handmade shoes , filled with un-expected twists and turns..
& a Happy Ending ofcourse !

Next on my list, Lucia Lucia for the same author !
