The Trouble with Valentine's Day
by Rachel Gibson

I love Valentine's Day! The cards, the colors, the flowers.. a whole day dedicated to celebrating love, what's not to love about that!  I love a romantic evening out with the husband, but I also enjoy a quiet evening with the kids in bed, a cool glass of Pinot in my hand, my favorite blanket and a good book!  My husband will be traveling for work this Valentine's Day, so looks like plan B is my only option this year! 

The Trouble with Valentine's Day by Rachel Gibson is my cuddle up book of choice for Valentine's Day 2013! Avon Romance has re-released this book and at the perfect time of year! I read it during it's first release and it immediately earned a spot on my keeper shelf!  

Here is the book description courtesy of Amazon.com:

It's the one day each year when being single is a sin . . .

The Trouble With Valentine's Day? It just plain stinks! Kate Hamilton should know. Dumped by her boyfriend, burnt out by her job, she's returned to Gospel, Idaho, where a Mountain Momma Crafters' original poetry reading is about as good as it gets on a Friday night. Then her first attempted seduction of a hunky stranger is completely rejected. So much for her self-esteem!

It turns out that Rob Sutter, former ice hockey madman, owner of Sutter's Sports—and the hunky stranger who told her to get lost—has been more than burned by love and isn't looking for a relationship. But then he and Kate find themselves in an ultra-compromising position in the M&S Market after-hours, giving the phrase "clean up in aisle five" a whole new meaning, and causing a whole lot of gossip in Gospel . . .

This book is full of the trademark Rachel Gibson mix of humor, love and warmth. The characters are likable and the backstory between Rob's mother and Kate's grandfather is adorable. I give this book Five Stars (ok Five HEARTS- for the Holiday)! 

The Mass Market paperback is currently on sale for $7.99 and the Kindle/Nook versions are available for the STEAL price of $3.79.

Happy Valentine's Day!

  4. I would say finding a babysitter, going to dinner, and then watching a non-kid movie would be perfect. Even though I am thinking that I like @Soft Fuzzy Sweaters idea of cuddling up with a good book in bed or the couch.
    Thanks for the chance to win. Love Rachel and her sexy hockey men.

    1. I have always wanted to try real White Castle, we don't have them here, I tried the freezer version once, but am sure they are nothing close to the real thing! Happy Valentine's !
