This was another delightful anthology of holiday-themed short stories that proved to be a perfect accompaniment while eating foil-covered hearts. And just like Forrest Gump and his box of chocolates, you never know what you'll get! Of the dozen stories presented here, some just found special places in my heart. "The Gift" by Cat Shaffer was especially touching to me due to circumstances in my own life and I wanted to reach out and protect Al as he went to the Alzheimer's unit to visit his wife. ...more

Be Mine, Valentine, a table full of delicious love goodies, has a wonderful assortment of love treats—young, old, saucy, sad, and sweet. Like all sweet treats, one should not over indulge, but who can stop from having just one more? I, of course, over indulged and read the WHOLE book in one evening. Good!

Valentina, The Untold Legend by Jennifer Johnson purports that cupid with his arrows came into existence from this time. This is a special love story that is set in the distant past when Christ

Review by Jen

From the back cover:
Turquoise Morning Press’ Valentine’s Day Anthology 2011. A dozen short stories of love…just as good as roses. Maybe even better! This short story collection celebrates love—young love and old, mended love, secret love, and love enduring. Twelve talented writers share stories to touch your heart and soul.

I was asked by one of our past reviewers, Marissa Dobson, to review this book since she has a short story in this Valentine anthology. Since I enjoy anthologies a

So far I have read Margaret Ethridge’s short story, Be Mine, picking up where Jack & Ellie had left off after New Year’s. I skipped ahead to it, mostly because I’m her fangirl, but I plan to go back and read the rest of them this weekend. (I just wish that the font Papyrus hadn’t been used on the cover graphic.)

I just loved Be Mine! From the cheesy valentines hearts, to the chocolates and the failed roses. The deadly shrimp scampi, the silly GPS system that wanted to turn Jack into Michael S

Be Mine, Valentine: Short Stories of Love is a collaboration of twelve of Turquoise Morning Press’s authors. This collection of love stories is a wonderful way to share those warm fuzzy feelings! February, the month of love & romance, could not do without this delightfully pleasing collection of heart tugging stories. If you are looking for love in all the right places, then this book is for you!

Marissa Dobson’s Sweet Valentine is a wonderfully written reminder that love comes when we least

Clare's Review

A wonderful collection of 12 short stories all centered around Valentine's Day. Each touches on a different aspect of love. Whether it be a young couple in love for the first time, falling in love again, love that can’t be returned or everlasting love no matter what, there is something for everyone in this anthology. One to dip into every now and then.
