For Kate Hamilton, she hates being single especially when she is dumped by her boyfriend and can’t handle her job, she takes a leave of absence and returns to Gospel, Idaho, where she finds her one attempt at seduction shot down so fast it makes her head spin. But the guy she tries to pick up has been burned by love before and isn’t looking for another relationship. Well fate has another thing coming for Rob Sutter and Kate when they are found in a compromising position and scandal to Gospel. Will cupid be able to get these two stubborn people to give love another try?

I got to admit, if you are looking for a really heavy book, this isn’t it. It was a fun, lighthearted read that had me laughing at times. The story flowed nicely, the author writes believable characters and the sizzle between Kate and Rob was electrifying. I loved how small town of Gospel was a typical small town, quiet, full of gossip and entertaining people to enjoy. The author really keeps the reader entertained till the very end and that ending was a surprise that I didn’t see coming.

Meet Kate Hamilton. Finding herself dumped by her boyfriend, she takes a leave of absence and runs off to Gospel, Idaho, a small town where nothing really happens. Until she meets Rob Sutter one night and gets shot down in a hurry when she tries to seduce him. Ego bruised, Kate is crushed by the rejection. I loved Kate. Who hasn’t been down when an unexpected break-up happens and you try to make yourself feel better by finding a rebound person? Kate is a sweet and lovable character that a reader can get behind in. The author does a great job in keeping the characters real and I really enjoyed the sparks that flew between her and Rob. Rob is a man who has been burned before and when he shoots down Kate, well let’s just says fate has a way of turning things around. The secondary characters are quite entertaining as well.

THE TROUBLE WITH VALENTINE’S DAY is a fun light-hearted story that is a perfect joy to read on a winter afternoon. This was the first I have read in this series from this author and I look forward to trying a few of her other books in the future. If you enjoy light-hearted romance with a variety of characters, then give this one a try.
