Cassandra Campbell continues her portrayal of Valentine Roncalli in the second book in Trigiani’s trilogy, which began with VERY VALENTINE. Campbell moves seamlessly from Italian-accented English to smooth Italian dialogue in the interactions between Valentine’s extended and boisterous family, which has expanded to include her grandmother’s new husband and Valentine’s love interest, Gianluca. As Valentine, Campbell gives an expressive and energetic performance, pulling the emotion from every exchange with friends and family while presenting the narrative passages about Italy, interior design, and shoemaking in the unfolding drama. Best of all, the deeper, husky voicing of the sexy Gianluca will have listeners waiting impatiently for the next installment. E.N.
