“How can you remember someone you’ve never met?”

Midnight Valentine is by J.T. Geissinger. This is my second book by J.T. Midnight Valentine is one of those rare books you come across that just leaves you breathless, that the characters become a part of you. That the maximum five star rating is not nearly enough!

Megan Dunn had the perfect life. She was married to the love of her life, her sweetheart since she was six years old, Cass. But, he was tragically taken from her much too soon. They’d

Well, daggum! What a way for me to be introduced to a new author! This book is Amazing and so is Ms. Geissinger's writing abilities.

She pulled off heartache, humor, and a beautiful, unexpected love story in one page turning read. Destiny and fate take center stage in this alluring plotline which instantly pulls you in. The characters are so raw, so real, so remarkable.

I simply could not get enough of this story ...... could not get enough of Megan and Theo.

Thanks to JTG for refraining from writing the ending she thought this book needed (you saved me from having an ugly-cry meltdown). Additional thanks for such an emotional, gripping story.

5 💝 you make all my broken parts bleed 💝 stars!

Books like this is a main reason I love reading.

There are books and there are Books. This one was The Book.

A perfect (and sometimes even weird) mix of pain and grief, but at the same time humor and light.
Beautifully written. Deep, raw, sincere, tragic, happy – real.


I floved this woman. MY kind of a heroine. Strong, sassy, sarcastic, but also vulnerable, kind and feminine.

She not only spoke cool lines, she lived them!

"No amount of logic in the world can explain your connection with Theo Valentine."

J.T. Geissinger delivers a VERY entertaining and well written story. I was anxious while reading it trying to figure out what is the handyman in this beautiful seaside town's deal. Getting to the whys was the best part of the story for me. I truly loved the journey!


"I loved her long before we met."

However, the whys just didn't wow or work for me... (view spoiler)

This is a book about a love that transcends time. It is about reincarnation; you understand it at the very beginning because the book begins with this awesome poem!

Megan lost her husband, the love of her life, her soul mate 5 years ago and she is still grieving for it.

Theo had an accident 5 years ago and he has been mute since then; no one knows why.

When Theo and Megan meet for the first time, it is like a thunderstorm…

He is wild, actually both pissed and anguished. She doesn’t understand why

People say time heals all wounds, but that’s a lie. Grief is a chronic disease. The pain just keeps on coming.

Wow. WOW. Just WOW. What an incredibly powerful, unique, and utterly unforgettable story. I've been a long time fan of Geissinger, but after this book? I'm a die hard. Ride or die. I'm talking rabid fangirl here, people!!!

First of all, you need to experience this book blind. Don't read spoilers. Try to read as few reviews as possible as not to ruin even the smallest detail for

I'm deeply touched by this story...

"Death doesn't end a relationship. Only a life."

Megan Dunn has lost the love of her life five years ago and has been actively in therapy for the last two, yet she still lingers on to her lost love, re-living the very tragic moment through the "survival guilt". She leaves Phoenix and moves to Seaside, a small coast town buying a house The Buttercup Inn that has been a long awaiting dream place of hers and her late husband. The residence is in bad shape and

You kill me JT Geissinger! What an emotional journey you just took me on. I’m not sure my heart could have taken much more and I regret nothing. Incredible! A truly beautiful story about a love that will never die.

Midnight Valentine is about a girl who grows up with a boy, marries boy, then loses boy. How do you survive the death of the other half of your soul? This is what Megan has been trying to learn for the past five years. When therapist don’t help, she decides it’s time to start over and

***A solid 5 star read!!***

"Whatever happens, she’s the true north my soul will always point to."

My first read by J.T. Geissinger really blew me away! This is truly a unique romance story. It deals with reincarnation and eternity loves. A little of everything to keep the reader fully engaged until the last word is uttered.

This book was unputdownable. Absolutely magical. With a different spin on a love story, my first book by this author was a beautiful experience.
There are just no words to explain how I’m feeling right now after closing the last page of this book. No words. It was so much more than what I was expecting. The romance was exceptional but the true heart of this story left me feeling wrung out and my mind all awhirl.

Meagan’s husband, Cass, died five years ago after a tragic accident. She has not moved on. She has grieved but it has not brought healing. He was the love of her life. She lost so much the day she lost him but one thing she still

Midnight Valentine by JT Geissenger is breathtakingly and hauntingly PERFECT! It’s my favorite book of the year thus far. This book was completely unexpected and stole my heart.

Theo and Megan are the most intriguing characters I’ve ever read. The story is absolutely amazing—beautiful, smart, and dazzling. The intricacies of the plot and characters has completely blown me away. This is the type of book that will stay with me ALWAYS. It’s profoundly moving! I’m in awe of the masterf

3.5-4 Stars

J.T. Geissinger can write. No question about that. I enjoyed Midnight Valentine. I’m fascinated with religious, supernatural and paranormal topics so when reincarnation was introduced in this story I was intrigued. Especially when you incorporate it with a strong love story. Megan and Theo’s story was great and I thought their road towards acknowledging the impossible was angsty and emotional as hell. For some reason I felt the story was lacking something. Megan was a feisty and funny

3-3.5- stars????


I tried to like it and even though I very much liked the heroine she wasn't the problem. If she was the only character in this book then I would have rated it 5 stars.
The hero? I couldn't connect with him. Maybe because I didn't get his POV, it would've helped a lot if I read his thoughts. I didn't actually feel any chemistry or connection between them two.
Also the ex fiancé is still living in the same town they are living in. Talk about awkward.
Doesn't matter that she's pregnant
5 stars.
Emotional and poignant romance.
Do you believe in life after death?
J.T. Geissenger writes a deeply emotional, thoughtful book that has more than it's share of sadness and heartbreak.
I was very touched by this story.
Recommended read.👍👍👍👍👍

"Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die." ~ Mary Elizabeth Frye

What a heartfelt story this was, filled with a... unique kind of love.

32 year old Megan Dunn has accepted a past tragedy that happened 5 years ago, but she never really moved on from it. She picks up and moves to Seaside to start fresh by buying a B&B. That's where she meets a man named Theo, a disgruntled man, to only her it would seem.

Theo Valentine runs his own construction company and has a few confusing secrets that he keeps to himself, behind his

"One lifetime wasn’t enough to love you."

One of the most amazing love stories I ever read! Cross my heart.
I've always believed that there's only one soul mate, one big love for each of us in our lifetime. This book proved me wrong.

I've never put much thought in reincarnation, but it's not something I dismiss completely. I love the concept of serendipity and this book is so full of it, that it's scary.

"How can you remember someone you’ve never met?"

This book gave me so many goose bump

I loved it! A refreshing read but I fell in love with it, all the same.

By the way, I loved the heroine so much. One of the best I've read, there is. Here are quotes as testament of my love for her.

"What he doesn't know about me is that I'm not the girl who wilts when confronted with awkward or potentially dangerous situations. I'm the girl who bares her teeth and growls" (go girl! *grins*)

"Why is it that when a woman's been through a lot, she's expected to handle it gracefully with fake smiles
Wow...just wow. This booked sucked me in from the start and didn't let go even after I read the last word. Megan's attitude and wit made me connect with her and I found her stubborn, strong, yet sensitive personality relatable and a fresh voice from a heroine. Without giving to much away the setting on the Oregon coast really sets the tone for this story and gave me great visuals as I read. I'm also very happy with the single point of view. I like dual POV but I love to get lost from in a single ...more
The allure of reincarnation for some, is that there is a true love that never dies, that lovers can always find themselves lovers again in some other lifetime, reborn in different bodies—that bit I can understand.

‘Midnight Valentine’ however, takes this in a direction that doesn’t sit at all well with me and I’ll say from the start that there isn't anything wrong with the engaging writing, or the snarky personality of Megan that I love but that I had some serious, personal issues with the entir

Wow. This book is not at all what it seemed. Throughout the entire story, my mind played tricks on me. I am a serious over-thinker and one bit of advice with Midnight Valentine- don’t over-think. Take each page, each chapter as it comes. Meet our heroine, a young widow who ventures to Oregon in search of a new start. She purchases an old dilapidated Bed and Breakfast and begins her search for the perfect contractor to transform it to the dream B&B she and her late husband dreamed they woul

A few days have passed since I finished reading Midnight Valentine. And I really needed that time to gather my thoughts and feelings.

I'm a little torn about this novel. It could have been AWESOME, and yet it felt somehow less than what I was hoping for.

I do love stories about reincarnation - fate, destiny, endless love. This is one of those. On top of which there's a scarred, mute man - I just love these types of silent, intense, brooding, deep-feeling men...

BUT. In order to tell you about my BUT, I have to back up and tell you about the book.

“One of the first shrinks I went to after Cass died told me that the brain has a hardwired need to find correlations, to make sense of nonsensical data by making connections between unrelated things. Humans have evolved a universal tendency to seek patterns in random information, hence the existence of fortune-tellers and dream interpreters and people who see the face of Jesus in a piece of toast. But the cold, hard truth is that there are no connections between anything. Life—all of existence—is totally random. Your lucky lottery numbers aren’t really lucky, because there’s no such thing as luck. The black cat that crosses your path isn’t a bad omen, it’s just a cat out for a walk. An eclipse doesn’t mean that the gods are angry, just as a bus narrowly missing you as you cross the street doesn’t mean there’s a guardian angel looking out for you. There are no gods. There are no angels. Superstitions aren’t real, and no amount of wishing, praying, or rationalizing can change the fact that life is just one long sequence of random events that ultimately have no meaning. I really hated that shrink.” 1 likes
