Today it is my stop on the blog tour for Emily Murdoch's regency romance novella A Valentine Secret, which as you probably guessed from the title, is all about Valentine's Day! Now I know I'm a few days late for Valentine's Day itself, but it's still a really fun and light-hearted quick read - besides, we could all do with a little extra dose of romance in our lives, right?
The novella is a short and sweet read and can easily be devoured in one sitting. I read it on my lunch break over two days, and although I'm a fast reader, I think that shows just how quickly you can read it.
Similarly, the story itself is simple and follows one main plotline. It's uncomplicated and straight to the point - if you want a bedtime read that doesn't require you to think too much, then this is the ideal book for you.

I find it a little odd that the two could fall in love so quickly - they go from never having spoken before to being on the verge of declaring their undying love for one another after having met only a handful of times. Personally, I find this to be unbelievable and slightly off-putting.
However, on the whole, A Valentine Secret is a fun and light-hearted read. If you don't take it seriously but do take it by its surface value, it's a short and sweet read perfect to satisfy your inner hopeless romantic this Valentine's Day.
