Welcome back to Valentine Valley where the holiday season will bring together two people with a shared past and maybe a bright future…if they believe in their love that is.

Kate Fennelli is trying to figure out her life when she returns to Valentine Valley and the man she left behind when she took a job to further her career as an attorney. Now years later, at a crossroads, she decides to look up Tony De Lucca, the one man she loved with a passion that scared her all those years ago. Sitting in his bar as she spills all her problems to him is surreal yet feels so right to Kate. But isn’t that chapter of their lives closed?

Tony De Lucca is stunned to see Kate and even more so to find that he still has feelings for her after all these years. Broken hearted when they parted, Tony is determined to stay away from Kate except he is drawn to her like a moth is to a flame. Now as they dance around the sparks that fly between them, can their second chance at love happen this holiday season?

I really enjoyed SLEIGH BELLS IN VALENTINE VALLEY and found it a perfect holiday romance to enjoy right after the holidays. The main characters, Tony and Kate have a deep connection as they try to reforge the bonds that were severed long ago. The connection that these two main characters have is a delight to read, especially as I have s oft spot for second chance love stories. Add in Christmas time and you got a magic within the pages. The author does a great job in showing the reader Tony and Kate’s relationship as it turns from a friend’s with benefits sort of thing to a full blown love affair of the heart; Except Tony doesn’t want to risk being hurt again even if he is still in love with Kate. The characters are well written, multi-dimensional and kept me interested until the very end. Add in a few secondary characters that peaked my interest, the story moved along at a nice even pace.

SLEIGH BELLS IN VALENTINE VALLEY is a sweet and timeless romance set in a town that could be anywhere USA. I loved how this author populated it with intriguing characters that keep your interest even as you long to know more about them and the town. This is an author who knows how to weave a spell around her readers while keeping the characters fresh and exciting for them as well. I loved how this author captures the spirit of the town as well as Christmas to conjure up a well written story in her Valentine Valley series. If you enjoy a sweet romance set in a town that leaves you eager to discover, then try SLEIGH BELLS IN VALENTINE VALLEY. This is a perfect holiday read to enjoy anytime of year!
