Midnight Valentine had me reeling in excitement with goosebumps and whatthefuckery moments.  I could not put this book down.” ~ Under the Covers

A tragic accident had left Megan a widow.  Trying to live without the love of her life has been hard, but her goal is to live their dream to open a Bed and Breakfast in a small town.  As she follows this dream, she meets the mysterious Theo whom for some odd reason has acted nothing but strange towards her.  You see, Theo’s  life also changed drastically from a tragic accident,  but their similarities of what changed their lives do not end there.  They have an unexplainable connection that cannot be denied.  One thing is for sure, fate has given them a second chance.  

Midnight Valentine had me reeling in excitement with goosebumps and whatthefuckery moments.  I could not put this book down. The need to know the whys of it all was at a high up until about sixty-five percent, then you’ll get a sense of what’s going on. Of course, right from the start I was intrigued with Megan, her story,  and her strength.  Losing a loved one is a reality for all of us in one way or the other and Megan handled each tragedy that came her way like a pro.  Yes, it was more than one tragedy.   I love the second chance that Megan has taken after her husband passed.  Her pursuit of the B&B dream was inspiring.  Theo, on the other hand, had it bad, and his situation was so complicated that I can’t even fathom his reality.  We do get a glimpse in his head in the Epilogue as we get his POV.  I hope Ms. Geissinger thinks about a short story of his POV from the very beginning.  There so much there that needs to be told.

Geissinger wrote a story of not only of two people finding their second chance after a tragedy, but a story of unexplainable events that brought two people together.  The parallel lives that somehow connect just about blew my mind.  I don’t question how realistic this story might be, but I do believe in magic, and I chose to take it as is and revel in their happy ending.  

Salute to you, Ms. Geissinger.  It was a story well told.

About J.T. Geissinger

J.T. Geissinger’s debut novel, Shadow’s Edge, was published in 2012 and was a #1 Amazon US and UK bestseller in fantasy romance and romance series. She has been nominated for the prestigious RITA® award from the Romance Writers of America for best paranormal romance for her second book in the Night Prowler series, Edge of Oblivion.

A life-long lover of reading and a self-professed “book addict,” she didn’t realize her dream of writing a novel until a milestone birthday forced her to take stock of her goals in life. Always believing the right time to commit to putting pen to paper would magically announce itself, it took waking up one cold January morning with a shiny new zero as the second number in her age to kick start her determination.
Starting on that very day, she wrote what would become Shadow’s Edge in a little over four months and submitted it to several literary agents. Nothing happened. Thinking that was the end of that but by no means willing to give up on her dreams of being published, she began work on a second manuscript.
Then, during a trip to Italy in honor of their 10th wedding anniversary and the honeymoon she and her husband never took, she received an email that would change her life. It was from an agent, Marlene Stringer of Stringer Literary, and it contained the three words every aspiring author longs to hear: “I loved it.”

Marlene sold the manuscript to Montlake Romance who published it six months later. Hitting the #1 Amazon bestseller lists within weeks of publication, Shadow’s Edge was book one of the Night Prowler novels. Book two, Edge of Oblivion, was published in October 2012 and will be followed by Rapture’s Edge in June 2013, and Edge of Darkness in fall 2013. There are six books total planned for the series.

This sounds good but I’m worried about the angst level as I can’t do excessive angst.
