Jodi Williams wasn't happy about moving to Turtle Creek. She was a Chicago girl who wanted a job with the Tribune not a small town paper. But she also wanted a chance to get away and heal her broken heart after her best friend married her boyfriend. The story opens with her almost hitting a dog when coming into town then watching as the dog was struck by another driver who keeps driving. As she is comforting the dog trying to figure out what to do along comes Josh Thomas who just happens to be a vet. The attraction is instant. Josh's receptionist, Della, notices the attraction too and out comes her claws. She has her cap on Josh and is willing to do anything to keep him away from Jodi. Will Jodi only find heartbreak in Turtle Creek? Will Josh win the girl of his dreams?
This was a delightful addition to the Turtle Creek Series. I love Robin's writing and the way she uses words. She holds your attention through the entire book. Jodi is someone we can all relate to. She is sweet, kind and caring but doesn't feel loved. Josh is a VERY romantic hero. A man who is thoughtful, kind and truly listens. I'm sure we have all experienced a Della in our lives but I love the way Robin handled her as well. Although not a suspense the twist toward the end was not what I expected which made it even better. You also get to see all the characters from the Christmas Edition which is fun. You don't need to read the Christmas Edition to have The Valentine Edition make sense but I highly recommend reading them in order for a richer story.
