Valentina DeLuca has made hundreds of brides' dreams come true. At Sposa Rosa--the Astoria, New York, boutique where she, her sisters, and their mother design and sew couture knock-off gowns--she can find the perfect style for even the most demanding customer. Now it's her turn. Valentina has loved Michael Carello ever since he rescued her from a cranky shopkeeper when she was ten years old. He's handsome, chivalrous, and loyal, and in a few weeks she's going to marry him--in Venice. Just when she thinks everything is falling into place, Valentina is forced to reexamine her life to see what truly makes her happy. As she soon learns in a place as magical as Venice, what seems like misfortune can turn out to be anything but. And maybe she'll discover that bella fortuna (good luck) isn't what you're given but what you make.
