I have to say I love the Love Inspired ranges. Why do I love them its the easy to read style of book that has a lovely story but also has real people. The characters had problems and issues to deal with like real people. The are often have feelings of insecurity and struggles which make them human. This is another of the range and both Jessica who has returned to Alabama with her little boy and Martin have issues to deal with. Add match making parents although they don't fully admit to it and yo ...more
This story was about Jessica Bowman and Chad Martin. They were sweethearts in high school, and they planned to be together forever. But, Chad wanted to go to college, and Jessica ended up pregnant. She did not tell him, and left town. She didn't want to spoil his dreams. She tried to tell him many times, but it never seemed to be the right moment. Even so, Chad kept looking for her for along time. He finally gave up and married someone else. That woman wasn't right for him, and they got a divorc ...more
"Her Valentine Family" by Renee Andrews is full of rethinking past mistakes and also seeing them in a different light.

Each Jessica and Chad has a secret. One can be a little more damaging then the other. A secret kept for whatever reason can have some serious ramifications when the truth comes out. But can good also come out of the secret at the same time?

I always enjoy good long lost love stories where the love never seems to die regardless of the time passing, and this story is no different. T

Easy rading.... great story of love, forgivenss and coming back to faith.

Well written and keeps the reader's attention. Christian faith based.

Won this book from first reads. When I opened the book the bible verse I read was one of my favorites, so I just knew I would like this book.
Jessica returns home to with a secret, when she tells that certain someone what will be the reaction?
I really enjoyed this book, it just warmed my heart to pick it up each time.
I received this book as a goodreads giveaway. A sweet story of forgiveness, redemption, and the consequences of the choices we make. With God's loving grace a couple find themselves reunited and journey to form a new family. Reminds one to keep hope.
I normally don't do religious type novels but I actually really liked this one. In fact I thought it was down right great. Everything worked out how it was suppose to and it didn't seem fake or exaggerated at all!
Really liked this story....after years apart a woman moves home near the love of her life but things have changed a bit.
This was a perfect story to read, it was fun loving and very Inspiring.
i loved this book.
