    2. A Town Called Valentine is the start of another "small town romance series". It seems like there are a lot of these around after the success of Robyn Carr's Virgin River series. I've grown weary of that series, started Emily March's Eternity Springs series and have grown weary of that series as well. Perhaps this is just me needing a change of genre, but I found this book to be just "more of the same".Emily Murphy has come to Valentine Valley, Colorado on the heels of a bad marriage/recent divor [...]

    3. Nice story. The hero and heroine meet in a bar in small town Colorado, play some pool, and get all hot and bothered with each other. Then they both get irritated with themselves when she stops things from going further. Then her car won't start so he gives her a ride, except the place she's going is a ruin, so he takes her to his grandma's boarding house, and the story is off and running. He's a rancher who has problems with helping people too much. She's a recent divorcee who's trying to start [...]

    4. I started off loving the vibe of the small town immediately. What can I say? I'm a sucker for small town romances. However, I fluctuated between liking and disliking the heroine. She was too hot and cold for my own taste. I did like the hero. Eventually I did feel the connection between them. I mostly enjoyed the secondary characters and I look forward to discovering what happens to them. Overall, not a bad start to a series.

    8. Good book. I loved the small town atmosphere and all the quirky characters. I really liked Emily and the way she was taking control of her life. She planned to take a couple weeks and get her building ready to sell. She wasn't expecting it to be in as bad a shape as it was, and realized it was going to take longer than she thought.

    11. It was a heartwarming story about second chances. I enjoyed how Emily started growing on her journey of self-reliance and was able to move forward with her life.

    18. I started reading A Town Called Valentine on Valentine's Day because I thought it was an appropriate title. And to tell the truth, I really enjoyed the first half of the book. But then a series of small odd details started to irk me. By two thirds of the story I was almost ready to call it a day and I managed to stumble through the happily ever after just relieved the book was finally over. The romance between Nate and Emily is fairly predictable, but then, that happens in a lot of romance novel [...]

    22. This was a new read for a more contemporary series than I've read in the last few years. I also don't think of myself as being cowboy related but Nate is written in such a way that you like him. His sex appeal is lost on me but his kindness and how much he loves his family seems sweet. The pressures he experiences seem real and I believe in him as a character. I don't really know anything about ranching so I don't know if it seems real or not. I thought that the ranch should have more workers th [...]

    25. Not too bad for a first book, but it had some storyline issues. One minute a character says this then the next minute it's something else. And the character wasn't lying or anything. The author just seemed to have forgotten what road she was going down with her story and the book just wasn't edited properly. Besides that problem, I liked the feel of the story and its setting. I seem to have this thing for small town-esque books with the whole everybody and their grandmother knows about you. Ha. [...]
